AAA announced six hotels and one restaurant have been added to the travel authority’s exclusive list of Five Diamond establishments. Wilson Associates is proud to have designed one of those seven properties! Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve is the first Reserve property in the Americas, and is a luxurious beachfront hideaway offering guests unprecedented access to Puerto Rico’s serene coastline and lush tropical forests. The “barefoot luxe” environment created by Wilson Associates alludes to the history and romance of Old San Juan and is a stunning tribute to a formerly private plantation.
AAA inspectors noted Dorado Beach’s spacious guest suites with luxurious amenities and ocean views, some with private pools. Described as “cutting-edge AAA Five Diamond luxury wrapped in an envelope of naturally preserved sanctuary-style surroundings”, the property was praised for its five-acre spa, stellar service, and ambience of exclusivity.
For more than 80 years, AAA has used professional inspectors to conduct in-person property evaluations, awarding its highest designation to only select of establishments. The prestigious Five Diamond Award is reserved for a handful of hotels delivering truly unique experiences, contemporary designs, premier quality and personalized services. Only 120 hotels across the country and Caribbean have received a Five Diamond rating. Wilson Associates is proud to have designed 8 of those properties.
