Discover the natural beauty and lush landscape that has lured travelers to Dorado Beach, a celebrated Caribbean destination for generations. Among an unspoiled view and towering palm trees, we invite you to immerse yourself in the unique experiences that await. This luxury oasis was grandfathered to be built on the footprint of the former Laurance Rockefeller estate from the 1950s, allowing for every guestroom and restaurant to rest directly on the beach, only steps from sea.
Few homes at Dorado Beach are held with such reverence as Su Casa, which served as Clara Livingston’s beloved residence from 1928 - 1955. One of Miss Livingston’s conditions was that no alterations would be made to Su Casa until the last Livingston was deceased. Now at the VIP villa for Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, guests can experience the original Spanish hacienda restored to its original 1920s grandeur. This expansive 8,000-square-foot, five-bedroom villa, complete with a private concierge embajador, extraordinary oceanfront views and a private infinity-edge pool, is nestled among the resort’s palm-fringed beaches and tranquil ocean waters.
With acclaimed chef José Andrés at the helm of his first Caribbean restaurant, Mi Casa, guests can enjoy an epicurean adventure that reflects Puerto Rico’s heritage as the crossroads of Spanish, Caribbean and American cuisine. From outdoor dining on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, experience a savory blend of delectable flavors, innovative dishes prepared by a culinary mastermind and a refreshing blend of fresh handcrafted cocktails prepared with many ingredients from our own gardens.
Tucked away amid lush flora is Spa Botánico, a five-acre botanical sanctuary of pampering offering a holistic yet modern approach to beauty and wellness. This relaxing enclave blends lush surroundings, a soothing natural environment and the finest quality of local botanicals and ingredients to enhance tranquility and revitalize the senses. From the Apothecary Portal that welcomes you into this relaxing realm, to the gardens that produce the healing properties of many of our indigenous treatments, Spa Botánico coaxes each of your senses into a heightened state of focus.
