Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve Su Casa hotel

You’ve always wanted to live like a Rockefeller — and now you can. Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve hotel has just opened on the former Laurance Rockefeller estate in Puerto Rico.

This 1,400-acre property, boasting 100 guest rooms and fourteen beach suites, offers a unique mix of luxury, nature and culture in a one-of-a-kind, open-air enclave for the most discerning of travelers. The indoor space blends seamlessly with its surroundings, melding well-appointed accommodations with an immersive natural experience.

Tear yourself away from the beach landscape and retreat to the five-acre botanical sanctuary at Spa Botánico for a wellness treatment of ancient Puerto Rican Manos Santos, or “Holy Hands,” practices. Savor the flavor of locally caught seafood prepared with a blend of Spanish and Puerto Rican flair at Mi Casa by José Andrés, the chef’s first restaurant outside of the states.

Dorado Beach sets a new standard for luxury in the Caribbean with high-season rates starting at $1,499 per night.
