The comforts of home are many, but generally speaking, those comforts do not include such services as valet parking, grocery stocking, chef-prepared meals, golf course membership and child care. The Ritz-Carlton aims to change all that. With the unveiling of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, the esteemed resort chain is offering meticulously designed full-ownership homes and condominiums that come with all the privileges accorded to guests at their various resorts, from access to world-class facilities to top-notch concierge services.

The company has a number of locations from Los Angeles to Bangkok, some of which have certainly become prominent features on their cities' skylines. The properties on offer in each locale are representative of what constitutes luxury living in that particular place; that is, while the Residences at Dove Mountain in Arizona feature golf-course access, Southwestern-style architecture and views of the Tortolita Mountains and the Sonoran desert, the Residences at 50 Central Park South in New York are classic Manhattan homes with panoramic views of Central Park and round-the-clock access to the hotel's staff. Residential Suites at famed The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, have units available ranging from 850 to 1,650 square feet (those seeking larger homes will be interested in The Ritz-Carlton Residences at Kapalua Bay).

Services and amenities also vary from location to location; in Montreal, residents benefit from a dedicated "Technology Butler," while in Bachelor Gulch, ski-in, ski-out access and a ski valet make perfect sense.

Many new locations are underway for 2012 and beyond, such as Rancho Mirage in California, Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico and Molasses Reef in Turks and Caicos. Prospective buyers can sign up at The Ritz-Carlton website to be kept abreast of offerings and future projects.
