Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe
In this bustling capital city, surrounded by high rise buildings, The Spa at Waldorf Astoria Panama provides a welcome escape offering serenity and calm to its guests looking for rejuvenation and wellbeing.
A terrace with pool and Jacuzzi provides an outdoor relaxation space, which is beautifully lit in the evenings with hues of pink and purple. The steam rooms, separated for males and females, allow guests to prepare ahead of their spa services.
The Waldorf Signature Chocolate Immersion is an experience not to be missed. A thorough full body exfoliation using cacao and hazelnut prepares and softens the skin before a decadently rich warm chocolate mask is applied and the body is wrapped. With warmth from the heated massage bed underneath and the hot cacao mixture applied to the skin, comfort is ensured throughout the treatment. While the skin hydrates, and the rich aroma of chocolate fills the room, the therapist performs a tension-relieving scalp massage. After showering the mask off, a chocolate scented oil is used for a relaxing full body massage, leaving the skin feeling nourished and smelling delicious.
A gymnasium, situated next to the spa offers guests a variety of cardio and fitness equipment along with free weights and movement space.
