The Horned Dorset Primavera – Rincón, Puerto Rico, Greater Antilles (U.S. Commonwealth)
Blazing the Path to Luxury
Sitting on Puerto Rico’s unspoiled western coast, where green mountains tumble down into the sea, this elegant and curiously named Spanish neocolonial hacienda is the sumptuous getaway of choice for the smart set, weekend runaways from nearby San Juan, and international travelers who want to explore beyond San Juan. Named after an inn the owners maintain in upstate New York, the hotel and its celebrated restaurant have established and maintained an unprecedented standard for luxury boutique hotels in Puerto Rico.
The nurturing ambience is one of quiet pampering and plushness, as if this were the aristocratic home of a Spanish grandee whose coddled house guests rest, relax, and lounge between one superb meal and the next. The surrounding gardens, a virtual arboretum of exotic blooms, were lovingly created by the former owner, a research botanist. Situated above a secluded beach, the hotel offers a beautiful palm-flanked freshwater pool, too.
