The Ritz-Carlton does an excellent job of providing their guests a secluded, intimate experience with the tropical beauty of Puerto Rico—and that certainly extends to the spa. When I arrived, I was one of 4 other women and once my treatment was completed, I was the only person in the grotto and had the freedom to enjoy every little thing to myself!
With eyes closed, the sauna's steam and rhythmic music lured me into a deep relaxation after my massage. To refresh I took a quick dip in their cold soak tub, then headed to the glittering blue titled bottom rock jacuzzi where I lounged, hidden behind the jungle. At my leisure, I made my way to the outdoor shower to cleanse with the signature, house made shampoo, conditioner, and body wash—an alluring scent of ginger and lemongrass (which, luckily you can purchase in their spa store).
I can't rave enough about the Spa Botanico at Dorado Beach. I mean, 5 glorious acres of luxury spa all to myself? I was reluctant to leave, and paused for a good while in the Apothecary Room before jumping back on my bike to pedal back to my Ocean Reserve suite with plunge pool overlooking the blue waters of the Atlantic. Okay fine, I like everything outside the spa too.
