Few places are as treasured as Su Casa at Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico.

The Spanish Hacienda, pristinely located on the waters edge of one of the most beautiful beaches in all of the Caribbean, was once the beloved seaside home of Clara Livingston, a pioneering pilot and friend of Amelia Earhart. One of her conditions was that no alterations would ever be made to Su Casa until the last Livingston had passed away. Businessman and conservationist Laurence Rockefeller, who opened his legendary resort at Dorado Beach in 1958, honored her request, using the plantation home as a clubhouse for golfers and later the famed five-star Su Casa Restaurant with its prized seaside-veranda tables.

Today, the villa is the centerpiece of the Ritz-Carlton Reserve. When designing the new 5-star luxury resort, the first of its kind for The Ritz-Carlton brand in the Americas, architects discovered detailed photographs of the home from the 1920s and spared no expense to restore it to its original glory.

Heralded as one of the great new luxury accommodations in the world, Su Casa boasts four spacious bedrooms, an elegantly appointed living room and dining area, and an expansive outdoor veranda that opens onto a private lush outdoor enclave with a private infinity-edge pool and breathtaking views of the ocean. The services of a private concierge are included.
