The property, which is situated on 1,400 acres on the former Laurence Rockefeller estate, features 100 guestrooms and 14 one-bedrooms suites.

“As a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, the philosophy behind Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is to immerse guests into Puerto Rico’s rich history and extraordinary landscape while providing an unparalleled luxury travel experience unlike any other,” said Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company President and COO Herve Humler in a release. “Reflective of Laurance Rockefeller’s vision from more than 50 years ago of a natural sanctuary, the island is a combination of historical charm and metropolitan life blending serenity and a pristine backdrop – a perfect location for the Ritz-Carlton Reserve experience.”

The property’s Su Casa, originally built in the 1920s for Clara Livingston, the first owner of the land, is now a four-bedroom villa overlooking the ocean with its own private infinity pool.

Leading the culinary options will be Mi Casa by world-renowned Spanish chef Jose Andres (for more on his philosophy, click here). Other dining venues include Positivo Sand Bar, Encanto Beach Club Bar & Grill and La Cocina Gourmet.

The resort also features Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment programme.
