Perched atop the exclusive Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve community in Puerto Rico, this contemporary penthouse epitomizes luxury island living. Directly overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and offering panoramic views, this one-of-a-kind property is not only the most expensive residential listing in Puerto Rico, but also the priciest condominium offered in the Caribbean.

Listed at an impressive $49,000,000 by Blanca Hebe Lopez Pierluisi of Corcoran Puerto Rico, the dual-level unit spans more than 6,800 square feet across both interior and exterior spaces. Four generous bedrooms match up with four full bathrooms and an additional half bathroom, ideal for entertaining and hosting guests.

“This beachfront penthouse is one of the few that encompasses two full floors, including a private rooftop terrace in Dorado’s West Beach,” said Blanca Hebe Lopez Pierluisi of Corcoran Puerto Rico. “The residence is steps from one of the most sought-after beaches in the Caribbean and world-class amenities. Located in the acclaimed 5-star Ritz-Carlton Reserve, and as a branded residence, this unique opportunity offers tremendous ownership benefits.”

Located in Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, all residents enjoy a plethora of amenities on par with the community’s five-star resort namesake. First-class perks include access to a grand clubhouse, state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facilities, a world-class golf course, tennis courts, distinct restaurants, lush nature trails, a botanic-centric spa, an aquatic park, luxury shops, guard-gated access, and much more, all on-site.

The private community sits on a 50-acre oceanfront site that is home to the original tropical resort developed by Laurence S. Rockefeller in the 1950s. Today, the resort community maintains much of Rockefeller’s original vision, including buildings no taller than palm trees, preserved natural landscapes, and unobstructed access to the pristine beaches.

Hebe Lopez Pierluisi emphasizes the thoughtful design elements that elevate the living experience, such as a separate relaxation area adjoining the primary bathroom suite. This area features an outdoor jacuzzi, shower, sauna, and meditation space, all offering sweeping ocean vistas. Also, the unit boasts an exclusive L-shaped infinity pool atop, creating the illusion of merging with the ocean.

“In recent years, we’ve seen a growing demand for this type of property,” said Hebe Lopez Pierluisi. “This is the first opportunity ever to own a branded penthouse of this kind. Therefore, I would argue that it is a rarity in this unique moment in time.”

Should this prestigious property sell at or near its $49 million asking price, it would eclipse Puerto Rico’s previous record for the most expensive residential transaction, set in 2022 at $40 million for a standalone estate within the same Dorado Beach, Ritz-Carlton Reserve community.
