Panama Nikki Beach hotel renamed, under new management

PLAYA BLANCA, PANAMA The 240-key Nikki Beach Playa Blanca luxury resort will be renamed The Royalton Playa Blanca Panama and will come under new management, the resort’s owner announces.

Blue Diamond, the new hotel operations company owned by Sunwing Group of Canada, and Europe tour operator TUI will work with owner RG Hotels Group to manage the rebranded property. The property, which opened late last year, features five restaurants, two pools, an events hall and a modernist design.

“The Royalton Playa Blanca is one of the most stunning resorts we have ever worked on, and now, thanks to our partners at Blue Diamond, our guests will enjoy an unparalleled luxury experience,” says Maru Galvez of RG Hotels. “Immaculate service, attention to detail, and casual beachside elegance at one of the country’s most desirable locations is a winning formula.”

RG Hotels and Blue Diamond are in initial stages of developing two more properties in the Playa Blanca area.
