Ritz-Carlton Reserve chooses Puerto Rico for second destination

Luxury hotel chain Ritz-Carlton is to open its second "reserve" property in Puerto Rico, the company announced July 18.

The 114-room resort will be situated on Dorado Beach, a name many Caribbean-lovers will be familiar with as the site of Laurance S Rockefeller's original eco-resort, launched in 1958 as the first of its type in the region.

As of December 2012, the resort will also be home to the second Ritz-Carlton Reserve, surrounded by Rockefeller's original "great park" and spread across 50 acres with a mile (1.6 km) of beachfront.

The Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand, designed to offer luxury comfort and services in sustainable destinations, already operates a Phulay Bay on the Thai island of Krabi, but this will be the brand's first North American property.
