Exquisite Luxury at Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve: A Haven of Opulence

 

I have been fortunate to travel to Puerto Rico many times. It was my home port when I worked for Royal Caribbean International on the Rhapsody of the Seas and I filmed a webseries for Orbitz there as well exploring the fountain of youth in Ponce, El Yunque and Santurce. I was in town for the grand opening of Distrito T-Mobile and went to Bacardi to learn to make the ultimate pina colada!

But on this visit, I had the unbelievable opportunity to visit the exquisite luxury at Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve.

🏖️🌴 A dream come true at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve! 🌟 From the moment I arrived, I was immersed in a world of luxury and refinement. Every aspect of my stay was a testament to the art of elevated living. ✨🍹 ✨

I loved my stay at Dorado Beach and spoke about it in my interview with Bloomberg Pursuits. “Travel is often about the perspective you bring and what you look for.”

I have been to Puerto Rico at every stage of my life and travel career. San Juan was a home port for me when I worked for Royal Caribbean; I loved to stroll in Old San Juan, listen to live music and visit the 500-year-old forts...Most recently, I had a villa with a private plunge pool at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve and on World Environment Day, I planted trees with Dr. Richard Murphy at the Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment Program.

I loved my incredible stay at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve! As I reflect on my experience, I can’t help but daydream about the other Ritz-Carlton Reserves that await my discovery: Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Thailand, the serene Mandapa, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Bali, and the captivating Zadún, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Los Cabos. Each of these destinations is a masterpiece of luxury, a promise of indulgence in the most breathtaking surroundings imaginable. ✨🍹

YES! I loved my suite with a private plunge pool at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve! I could walk out the floor to ceiling glass sliding doors past my private patio and pool and was steps away from lounge chairs on the water’s edge. It was just a few more steps to the restaurant and stunning pool area. This video has a tour of my suite and then lunch by the pool at Positivo.
