They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but after its multi-million dollar renovation, just about anyone who gazes upon The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan is bound to be impressed.
“The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan has always been an acclaimed retreat in the heart of San Juan, appreciated for its Caribbean views, tropical design and relaxed lifestyle,” says Steve Redkoles, general manager of the property.
That “tropical design” is exactly what the enhancement project focused on. Now outfitted in lively colors to reflect the tropical ambiance of the area and complemented by rich earth-toned furnishings, the 416-room property welcomes guests with the warmth, comfort and atmosphere that Puerto Rico is known for.
Each guestroom and suite is now dressed in canary yellow with contrasts of deep aqua blue, while details are highlighted in watery teal with chartreuse features. The combination of the four bold shades create a feeling reminiscent of Puerto Rico’s warm waters and tropical surroundings.
It’s not just the walls that have benefited from the facelift—furniture, too, has been refurbished in rich chocolate brown with satin nickel decorative hardware. Beds come fully upholstered and feature plush, button-less tufted headboards, while desks are paired with ergonomic chairs of cream leather. Rooms are topped off with a chaise longue chair and artwork that celebrates world travel, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the view even from inside their rooms. All rooms at The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan feature flat-panel LCD TVs, wireless Internet access, three telephones with dual phone lines and data port, twice daily housekeeping service, fully stocked honor bar and plush terry bathrobes.
Supplementing its new “do,” The Ritz-Carlton continues to live up to its name with an array of luxurious standard features, such as an oceanfront pool and jacuzzi, five dining locations, full childcare facility, luxury spa, and even a 24-hour casino.
The resort also features a variety of activities in an exciting area to keep guests engaged. Every age group is catered to, from childrens’ arts and crafts and outdoor recreation programs to adults-only fitness programs. Guests with an itch to explore can visit a variety of attractions all within driving distance, including a shopping trip in historic Old San Juan, a visit to the Bacardi Rum Distillery, or a stroll through El Yunque Rainforest.
Coinciding with the completion of its renovation, The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan is offering travelers its Comfort You package. Through April 30, guests can take advantage of rates starting at $349 per night, featuring daily breakfast for two as well as a daily $100 resort credit.
