Located on Laurance Rockefeller’s former estate on the northern coast of Puerto Rico, the luxury Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve offers guests suites with private plunge pools, a spa and upscale dining options.
The resort focuses on its natural environment — it’s located along an unspoiled stretch of Caribbean coastline, and features nature trails with complimentary bikes and optional experiences to points of interest like waterfalls, rainforests and one of three bioluminescent bays.
There are two pools at Dorado Beach. Positivo is the resort’s peaceful infinity pool, and Encanto Beach Club is a livelier pool, ideal for families.
Suites at the resort are upscale and feature deep soaking tubs, in-room dining, and outdoor living space with open-air showers and private plunge pools.
For the ultimate getaway, Su Casa, built in the 1920s, is a two-story, five-bedroom villa with two pools, a spa treatment room and quarters for private staff. Su Casa can be reserved for private events or stays.
Dorado Beach offers a variety of dining options, including the open-air Positivo Sand Bar, which serves tapas, ceviche and fresh seafood.
At Spa Botanico, body scrubs and oils are made from indigenous ingredients, and treetop treatment rooms are available.
