About Us

LogosOn November 14, 1969, the Riande Granada Hotel opened its doors in the commercial and financial center of the city, lead by its founder, Don Ildefonso Riande. That year, Riande’ reputation and history for Panamanian hospitality began. Later, the Riande Airport Hotel, ideally located only 3 minutes away from Tocumen International Airport, was acquired.


Don Ildefonso Riande’ extraordinary work ethic and visionary ideas lead Riande Hoteles to become a symbol of Panamanian hospitality. In 2013, 44 years after operations began; his legacy was revived with the launch of a new and modern image for both hotels.
