At the Ritz-Carlton Residences,
Life's a Vacation

by INHABIT EDITORS

What if home was a five-star resort
you never had to check out of?

These inspired properties in sought-after destinations pair lavish resort amenities with the convenience of turnkey, low-stress luxury living.

Branded residences are all the rage these days, and for good reason. According to a recent report on the subject, the sector has grown 160% over the past decade alone, with North America projects accounting for nearly a third of the global branded residence pipeline through 2030. They can command an average 30% premium over their unbranded counterparts, underscoring the value of association with the world’s internationally-recognized vanguards of luxury.*
The concept that began at New York’s Sherry-Netherland in 1927 has since expanded far beyond the hospitality realm. Porsche Design broke ground on their Sunny Isles Beach condominium in 2014. Aston-Martin made their mark with a 66-story tower on Biscayne Bay and a sleek country estate near Rhinebeck, New York. Even Baccarat, the storied crystal house, saw the sparkle of immersive living experiences, embarking on recent projects in Manhattan and Miami.
Despite the meteoric rise of branded properties, those aligned with the world’s premier hoteliers hold a particular cachet, beckoning with the prospect of a permanent vacation that checks all the boxes: pampering spa treatments, inspiring views, and the stress-free, low-maintenance lifestyle serviced residences are known for.
Few in this regard can rival the Ritz-Carlton Residences. Ranging from cosmopolitan high-rises to coastal villas, this renowned intercontinental collection of whole-ownership homes couples cutting-edge design with dynamic amenities like 24-hour concierge service, private in-home dining, and valet parking, along with the full run of lavish hotel facilities. While no two are quite alike, they share the consistent thread of internationally-regarded elegance, style, and white-glove treatment.
At any of these properties, you’ll find yourself at top of the world under the storied crown of a world-renowned hotel brand.

Miami Beach is as much a lifestyle as it is a place, and the The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach embraces that. Residents here are met with a full-gamut amenities package curated to every personal need, from wake-up calls and newspaper delivery to personal chef service and spa treatments. Notably, a half-acre rooftop pool deck, filled with cabanas, daybeds, and tropical landscaping, overlooks the water and skyline. It all sits on the shores of Lake Surprise, a few waves removed from Biscayne Bay in the city’s Nautilus neighborhood. Miami Beach’s famed wonders — the beaches, the Art Deco architecture, the global cuisine, and more — are appetizingly close yet removed enough that coming home always feels like an escape.

The Residence: There’s a grand simplicity to this villa, one of the eight standalone residences on the Lake Surprise waterfront. A neutral color palette amplifies an inherent sleekness found throughout the interior, custom-designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni. It has what every great South Florida home should: voluminous natural light — thank you, floor-to-ceiling glass walls — and seamless indoor-outdoor flow. Once outside, there is a sea of possibilities. Lounge on one of many terraces, float along in a personal plunge pool, or take to South Florida’s endlessly explorable waterway networks via a private dock.

Along with its adjacent hotel, the soon-to-open Ritz-Carlton Residences, Savannah represents the brand’s first foray into the Hostess City. Poised to bring 20 stunning homes to the Savannah Bank and Trust building, the property enjoys a prime location at the heart of Savannah’s Historic District, with the Savannah River, Riverwalk, and Forsyth Park all nearby. The district, which roughly matches Savannah’s original borders, enjoys unrivaled green space thanks to its visionary founder James Oglethorpe, who placed twenty-some square parks in the city’s grid to ensure one would never be more than a few blocks away. Residents can enjoy dedicated concierge service, a state-of-the-art gym, a spa, a rooftop pool, a restaurant, and a members-only club — they’ll also have access to the hotel, where they can enjoy drinks on the rooftop terrace or down in the bank vault speakeasy.

The Residence: This penthouse is the crown jewel of the Savannah residences, spanning 3,342 square feet with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Interiors by Martin Brudnizki complement the building’s ornate Art Nouveau exterior with sophisticated style. An open plan living area provides seamless flow from the dining area and kitchen, which has a tucked-away pantry and laundry room behind its walls. Unique to the penthouse is a spectacular private balcony with views of the river and City Hall’s iconic golden dome.

Discover the treasure of truly luxurious living at the Ritz-Carlton Reserve Residences at Dorado Beach. This stunning development is built on the footprint of one of the Caribbean’s first eco-resorts, created by Laurance S. Rockefeller in the 1950s to bring glamorous hospitality to a secluded spot of Puerto Rico’s tropical paradise. Residents can unwind at two championship golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, an aquatic park, a tennis center, a water sports center, a fabulous fitness and wellness center, and five restaurants serving a range of cuisines from seafood omakase to Italian-inspired salt block cooking. 

The Residence: Occupying the entirety of the two top floors, this penthouse has a 2,609-square-foot rooftop terrace, an L-shaped infinity pool, and a covered outdoor kitchen. Inside, there’s an open-concept living area with floor-to-ceiling glass doors framing panoramic ocean views, along with four bedrooms, four full baths, and a powder room. The primary suite has a private outdoor shower, a hot tub, and a separate, enclosed, outdoor sauna. It’s the pinnacle of beachfront living.
