Dorado Beach by Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Puerto Rico
Ritz-Carlton arrives with a new luxurious brand to Puerto Rico, the Reserve brand.
The Reserve by Ritz-Carlton concept offers boutique resorts around the world, each with a distinctive personality and sense of place blending with the culture, history and heritage of the site.
The first Reserve was opened in Phulay Bay, Thailand and we will review it another day. Today we will talk about the second one opened last December in Puerto Rico.
It is called Dorado Beach and it is located in a ground that was once home of Laurance Rockfeller. It offers 100 larger than normal guest rooms, 14 one-bedroom suites on the beach and one stunning villa. They offer incredible views over the ocean with floor to ceiling sliding doors that entirely disappear! Or nice outdoor garden showers and individual infinity-edge pools.
