Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve officially reopens in Puerto Rico

Five-star resort Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico officially reopened this October 2018 following a meticulous restoration after the island was damaged in last year’s Hurricane Irma. The refreshed luxury beach resort on Puerto Rico’s north coast now features expanded offerings, amenities and facilities.

Guests returning to Dorado Beach will find each of the property’s 114 beachfront guestrooms, suites and villas re-imagined with a thoughtful design and refreshed with a colour palette that reflects the island’s tropical natural beauty. The resort’s expansive estate has also been landscaped with the addition of more than 300,000 new plant species, resulting in a truly tropical setting.

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve’s General Manager George Sotelo said:

“It is with great enthusiasm and joy that we welcome guests back to our treasured Reserve. The dedication, hard work and care that our ladies and gentlemen have invested in the transformation of Dorado Beach is truly remarkable and we look forward to sharing it with both returning and new guests.

We are delighted to continue to curate extraordinary experiences for our guests through new and meaningful journeys, as well as by encouraging them to rediscover the intrinsic beauty of Dorado Beach.”

The resort’s Encanto Beach Club Bar & Grill will introduce a refreshed dinner menu featuring coastal cuisine and authentic dishes from the Mediterranean. The property’s chic beachside restaurant, Positivo Sandbar, will debut an omakase and ceviche bar directly on the sand for relaxed, ocean-side dining. Dorado Beach’s highly-anticipated new signature restaurant and bar, COA, will be revealed in mid-December 2018.

The award-winning Spa Botanico has been redesigned to offer guests a serene and comfortable space. In addition to the return of its signature and locally-inspired spa treatments and unique handcrafted products that are made in the on-site apothecary, Spa Botanico will also debut new treatments as well as introduce a spa cuisine concept.

Su Casa, Dorado Beach’s unique five-bedroom villa and former home of historical figure Clara Livingston, will welcome guests starting mid-December 2018 after completing a renovation that will fully modernize the space while maintaining its historical significance and personality.

Global Brand Leader for Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Lisa Holladay, commented:

“Dorado Beach exemplifies the unique qualities of the Reserve brand, which is distinguished for its collection of locally-inspired properties that offer heartfelt care and transformative experiences in the most incredible corners of the world.

With this reopening, the world’s most discerning travellers can once again immerse themselves in the local culture, enjoy unique experiences set apart by human connection and discover this rare estate anew while also supporting the revitalization of Puerto Rico.”

As a part of Marriott International, the hotel has partnered with musical artist and philanthropist Lin-Manuel Miranda to support his work in stimulating the Puerto Rican economy and preserving the country’s culture by strengthening and sustaining the local arts community.

Throughout the resort’s opening season, starting now through February 2019, Dorado Beach will donate $10 per room to Miranda’s Flamboyan Arts Fund. The organisation supports all aspects of Puerto Rico’s artistic community, including music, theatre, visual arts, dance, literature, and youth arts education – critical components of Puerto Rico’s tourism industry and pivotal to the economic recovery of the island.
