Ritz-Carlton Reserve Reopens in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico’s most luxurious resort has completed its post-Hurricane Irma recovery.

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve reopens its doors Monday, a significant step for the burgeoning luxury travel market in Puerto Rico — and for the island’s tourism sector in general.

The property is the only Ritz-Carlton Reserve resort in the Caribbean, set on the onetime Rockefeller estate in Puerto Rico’s premier beachfront community.

Most of the changes at the relaunched property are cosmetic, from new landscaping to reimagined color schemes.

The hotel’s spa has been reinvigorated, while the resort is adding a new slate of offerings at the Encanto Beach Club, along with a new ceviche and omakase bar.

The property’s signature restaurant had been the Mi Casa by celebrity chef Jose Andres; that eatery is set to unveil a new concept in the middle of November, according to a statement from the property.

The property did not say if Andres would remain affiliated with the new restaurant.

Ritz-Carlton’s other Puerto Rico property, the Ritz-Carlton, San Juan, remains shuttered.
