Fodor's Review

Inspired by the design of an opulent luxury liner, 24 dramatically tiered, glass-walled stories rise from the sea, forming a sumptous Ritz-Carlton hotel with guest rooms that reinvent a golden era of luxury travel, a lavish tropical sundeck and infinity-edge pool peering over the ocean, and a Club Lounge that spans an entire floor. The sun-filled lobby and public areas sparkle with white-and-charcoal marble floors, crystal chandeliers, leather banquettes, and murals inspired

by the work of French artist Jean Cocteau. Via Luna, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the Lobby Bar, with a King Neptune mural, dole out superior ocean views through floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The Wine Room beckons with fine vintages from a 5,000-bottle collection. Luxury also awaits at the spa, with exotic therapies and a treatment suite for couples. The hotel's Club Lounge is one of the nicest Ritz-Carlton club lounges in operation, where guests can watch both the sunrise and the sunset from the balcony. Golfers have privileges at the private Grande Oaks Golf Course, where Caddyshack was filmed.
