Once the haunt of Rockefellers, the former Dorado Beach plantation in Puerto Rico is now home to the Ritz-Carlton Reserve, a remotely discreet wonderland of posh, tropical luxury. A favorite of A-listers including Ricky Martin who calls the tiny paradise home, Dorado Beach is arguably one of Puerto Rico’s most coveted addresses – and without a doubt one of the most beautiful.
The first residences to bear the title of Ritz-Carlton Reserve, the homes of Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico offer residents almost two miles of beachfront, the inimitable service of Ritz-Carlton Reserve, access to the resort’s signature restaurants and utterly posh Spa Botánico and the exceptionally covetable bonuses brought courtesy of the Encanto Beach Club with its pool, restaurants and social offerings.
Owners are also afforded access to the four Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed golf courses, access to an impressive, 8000 square foot fitness center, several dining venues, and The Watermill – the resort’s $12M water park where slides, rope bridges and tons of water fun for kids of all ages abounds. Of course, residing in Dorado also means the crystal blue waters, white sandy beaches and all the allure of the Caribbean is at your doorstep waiting for you to enjoy.
Split into East and West, residences on the West Beach are two to four bedroom homes located directly on the beach while East Beach abodes include five-bedroom beachfront villas as well as two and three-bedroom ‘Botanical Villas’ that frame the views afforded by the famed East and West Courses of Dorado Beach.
