By Jason Z. Guest

Trump Does It Again

The Trump Ocean Club International Hotel & Tower is Panama’s newest luxury hotel. Touted as the tallest and largest building in Latin America, the 70-story building takes on an elegant sail silhouette and overlooks the Panama Bay. With a total of 1,004 rooms—including private residences and 369 hotel rooms—the Trump Ocean Club brings a new kind of luxury to Latin America. The five-star hotel includes an oversized infinity pool, outdoor entertainment deck, retail boutiques, a sky lobby, casino and private beach. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness center and wellness spa for you to experience the ultimate indulgence. In true Trump fashion, the Ocean Club has its own catamaran and yacht club, where guests can sip cocktails and take in the breathtaking views of Panama Bay. So whether you’re looking for a luxe new place to live or just a swanky vacation spot, Trump, as always, has created a destination where indulgence reigns supreme. — Melanie Nayer

Three freshwater infinity pools, a separate children’s pool and on-site spa and gym facilities provide a slice of rejuvenation for all types of travelers.
