Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve (Puerto Rico)

A Ritzy Puerto Rican Escape

If Puerto Rico is the Shining Star of the Caribbean, then Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve must be where it gets a good chunk of its shine. This upscale resort seamlessly blends natural beauty with manmade luxury for an unforgettable stay so relaxing, you’ll even forget yourself.

Dorado Beach was a former plantation owned by Laurance S. Rockefeller, nestled on a remote beach and surrounded by a lush tropical forest. Guests enjoy floor-to-ceiling sliding doors with ocean views, breezy terraces, indoor and outdoor rainforest showers and a deep indoor soaking tub to melt all your worries away. Some rooms also offer private plunge pools and rooftop terraces.

Up for some golf? Pick from one of three magnificent 18-hole golf courses, then hit one of the resort’s five tennis courts, visit The Beach Club with its adult and family pools, or the five acre Spa Botanico where you can get a massage in an open-air treehouse. If you fancy a walk, get lost along the historic Rockefeller Nature Trail, then end your day with a spectacular meal at one of Dorado Beach’s restaurants, including Mi Casa by award-winning chef José Andrés.
