An extensive refurbishment programme taking place at the Melia Panama Canal is expected to be completed by December, 2014.

The $4.5 million project has already seen the renovation of 136 standard guest rooms at the Panama hotel, as well as the addition of a brand new sports bar, and refurbishments of the Miraflores buffet restaurant, pool area and gardens.

The hotel has launched a special all-inclusive rate plan from $99 per person, based on double occupancy, which is a valid for stays until 31st October, 2014.

The luxury all inclusive hotel's 58 premium guest rooms are currently undergoing work and there are plans to add an onsite zipline canopy tour with 10 ziplines, two of which will cross over Lake Gatun.

Located on the shores of Lake Gatun, close to the city of Colon, the Gatun locks, and Panama's beaches, Melia Panama Canal is a five-star hotel that offers easy access to Soberania National Park, a thriving rainforest which is home to more than 100 species of mammals, 525 species of birds and 124 species of reptiles and amphibians.

The property's upscale facilities include tennis courts, three swimming pools, a full-service health spa and fitness centre, an array of gourmet restaurants and bars, and a casino.

Its prime location on Panama Canal makes it the perfect place to learn more about the historic canal which celebrates its 100th anniversary this month.

The Panama Canal is 77 kilometres long and connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The locks at each end of the canal lift the ships to the Lake Gatun, an artificial lake that was created to reduce the amount of excavation work required for the canal. The lake acts a reservoir of water for the operation of the locks and it carries ships for 33 kilometres along their journey of the canal.
