Set right on the Panama Canal, this expansive 107-room resort has amenities galore—which will appeal to those wanting their creature comforts along with their adventure. As well as tennis courts, a massive pool with a swim-up bar, and a full-service spa offering citrus baths and hot stone massages, there are seven restaurants, a subterranean disco built inside a man-made cave, and golfing at the nearby championship Summit course. The resort even has its own aerial tram, which zips guests up to a mountaintop lookout for spectacular views of the surrounding Gamboa rainforest. For those inclined to venture off the property, the hotel staff organizes fishing trips, kayaking, and wildlife-viewing tours around nearby Gatun Lake. An expansion of the property—including the creation of 58 new rooms and suites—will be completed by early 2008.
