Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico has been announced as the site of the first Reserve Property from the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. The newly announced location is just the second location of the exclusive property collection.
Dorado Beach has been one of the most celebrated Caribbean destinations for over 50 years after being introduced to the world by Laurance S. Rockefeller and the new Dorado Beach Resort, opening in December 2012, is set to carry on that tradition.
"With world-class golf, a lush forest environment, and some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, Dorado Beach is the perfect setting to debut the first Reserve experience in the Americas," said Herve Humler, president and chief operations officer, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. "Blending serenity, a secluded landscape and a wealth of recreational options, the resort will reflect the original developer Laurance Rockefeller's vision more than 50 years ago of a natural sanctuary in one of the Caribbean's most pristine island locations," Humler added.
The new renovation will center on Ritz-Carlton Reserve, a 115-key oceanfront hotel and residence, as well as include the creation of West Beach and East Beach, the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve branded Residences showcasing a new level of luxury and sustainability.
"Since 1958, Dorado Beach has lured generations of discerning families, celebrities and dignitaries to its rare tropical paradise, and we are thrilled to work closely with The Ritz-Carlton to bring this legendary resort back to the forefront of Caribbean destinations," said Mark Lipschutz, principal and CEO, Caribbean Property Group, developer of Dorado Beach Resort along with the PRISA Group.
"Dorado Beach today is already an amazing resort with four Robert Trent Jones Sr. golf courses, three miles of magnificent beaches, an 11-mile Rockefeller nature trail, The Watermill water park, and a new 8,000-square-foot Dorado Beach Fitness and Wellness Center. Now, with the new Ritz-Carlton Reserve hotel and spa and Ritz-Carlton Reserve Residences, Dorado Beach will again take its place as one of the finest resorts in the world."
The Reserve property is the first project to open in the Americas and is currently accepting applications for the second phase. For more information, visit DoradoBeach.com.
