In keeping with their commitment to the integrity, prosperity and growth of the Azuero Peninsula, representatives of Cubitá Boutique Resort & Spa have entered into a Framework Cooperation Convention with members of CEXDE | Center for Executive Development – an accredited affiliate of the Inter American University of Puerto Rico – for the development of activities of educational, scientific, social and cultural significance.
World Class Hospitality Training in Panama
One of the first projects being developed under this framework is a pilot plan for a Hotel School, which will offer world-class training and university-level certification in Hotel Professional Development and Outreach, Professional Competencies and Labor Skills, and Executive Education. Endorsed by the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, this novel certification program aims at promoting customer service excellence not only among potential Cubitá employees, but among the Panamanian workforce in general.
Practical components of the Hotel School will be hosted within the luxurious and well-appointed facilities of the Cubitá Boutique Resort & Spa, situated on five hectares of prime real estate in the city of Chitre, the cultural and economic heart of Panama’s Azuero Peninsula. The Cubitá Boutique Resort & Spa, which is scheduled to open its doors to the public in October of this year, features 100 luxury rooms, a convention center, restaurant, museum, colonial chapel, swimming pool, spa, sauna and gym. Additional elements of the Cubitá resort include 26 elegant single-family residences, 64 modern condominium units and a commercial plaza.
