The Ritz Carlton Hotel Company will open Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, in December 2012 in Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico. The 114-room property will be located on a secluded, three-mile outcrop along Puerto Rico’s Caribbean coastline and encompass 1,400 acres.Accommodations will include 100 guest rooms and 14 one-bedroom suites, all located directly on the beach, and Su Casa, an original plantation hacienda renovated to its original 1920s style as a five-bedroom beachfront VIP villa available for weddings and private parties. The resort will be the company’s first Reserve property in the Americas.
Mark your calendar for a future vacation to Puerto Rico & the new Ritz Carlton Reserve. I’m sure they will be offering amazing introductory rates that can be paired with the already cheap ticket prices to the island. Puerto Rico is a hub for American Airlines Caribbean locations so American is always a good source for some of the best airfare rates. (Laura)
