Your Dorado Beach Resort Guide To The Most Relaxing Day Ever
After posting our guide for thrill-seekers last month, we thought it only fitting to follow up with a guide to release the tension life brings.
Stressful times call for restful measures. Everyone has a favorite way to unwind, but in this article, we’ll explore the most quintessentially relaxing possibilities during a day at Dorado Beach Resort & Club. Dawn ushers in the most relaxing day ever on the North Coast of Puerto Rico. Lucky for you, there’s no better place to spend such a day than at Dorado Beach. So, how do you even begin to savor such a day?
1. Start Your Day With A Walk On The Beach
The day has finally arrived. Whether your better half has taken the little ones on a day trip of their own, or you’ve both taken a day off of work for some much-needed R&R—today is the day.
The best days at Dorado Beach begin with a stroll on the beach. After sleeping in a little, roll out of bed and fix a cup of your favorite morning pick-me-up to sip while overlooking the ocean. Want to take the next step in soaking the morning in? Make your way down the beach for a stroll to set the tone for the day.
2. What Moves Your Body Moves Your Soul
A relaxing day is always made better with a little exercise. This may seem like the opposite of comfort so stick to the kinds of workouts you enjoy most. That may mean playing a couple of games of tennis, or a bike ride on our nature trails. For a highly relaxing low-impact exercise, take a yoga class at the Fitness & Wellness center. Whatever your favorite physical activity is, set aside some time for it before lunch. This is the most relaxing day, after all, so you don’t need to push yourself to your limit. After finding a flow and getting your heart pumping and working up a sweat, pick up an energy smoothie to boost your post-workout recovery before cooling down for lunch.
3. Enjoy Lunch With a View
By now you’ve worked up your appetite. You’re hungry and ready to eat. For lunch, walk over to Panela Cocina Social. The menu features weekly specials, fresh market salads and hearty entrees with exceptional twists of local flavor. Guests especially enjoy grabbing a table on the veranda to eat and admire the beautiful view.
4. Take a Dip
After lunch, take a dip in the pool, and lounge for a little. Whether you go back to your private villa or soak in the rays poolside at the Ritz Carlton Reserve, you can’t go wrong. Think of this as a preview for the pinnacle of relaxation yet to come.
5. Treat Yourself To a 5-Star Spa Experience
You can’t have the most relaxing day ever, without a day at the spa. Especially when the spa is one of the world’s most critically-acclaimed in the world, and is mere minutes away from your residence no matter where you are on the property at Dorado Beach Resort.
Spa Botanico at Dorado Beach was named as a top Forbes Travel Guide’s Most Luxurious Spas in the world. Plants hanging overhead in the ceiling of the salon and bushels of lavender that accent the Apothecary Portal. Here, an abundance of island-based earth lore is on display like a museum for the senses.
Puerto Rico has a rich history of botanical and healing traditions—all inter-woven at Spa Botanico into a sonorously peaceful experience. The five-acre sanctuary surrounded by lush green tropical foliage transports guests back to a time of relaxation before traffic, and jam-packed calendars.

The Purification Gardens encompass the spa and feature warm and cool pools with gentle waterfall showers. The variety of treatments include breezy spa treatments in the treetops with a Tree House Massage, Manos Santos botanical infusions along with an extensive menu of other pressure perfect therapies.
