Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
After a $342 million renovation, this once-low key beach is now a booming, exclusive resort town. Guests at the Ritz need not check in: a private ambassador will whisk you directly to your room, whether it be an oceanfront suite with floor-to-ceiling glass doors or Su Casa: an ample, Spanish-style hacienda that can accommodate you and 9 of your VIP guests. The verdant jungle lines the footpaths, and powdery beaches, are the perfect backdrop for this luxury estate. For dinner, José Andrés’s restaurant, Mi Casa, honors both the chef’s Spanish roots as well as local traditions.
