Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach

San Juan, Puerto Rico

The recently opened Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach resort is a locale so stunning it will give new meaning to Puerto Rico’s moniker, “Island of Enchantment.” Once the estate of Laurance S. Rockefeller, Dorado became the private playground of the Hollywood glamour set of the 1960s -- when old-time actress Joan Crawford visited, she demanded that they repaint her room pink. With a private villa that rents for $30,000 a night and a 22-building spa complete with massage platforms elevated in trees, this plush new resort is beckoning to celebrities and the ultra-wealthy once again … and maybe to you, too.
