“Tropical indulgence with legendary Ritz-Carlton service”

Considering this is the Ritz-Carlton’s first property to fly the “Reserve” flag, Phulay Bay had to be the benchmark – one of total immersion into luxury and the destination, plus services so personalized you might as well be the only guests on the exquisitely landscaped property. Private butlers tend to whims large and small, while off-site, personal explorers curate a tailor-made itinerary just for you. Massive pool, or even a private one, plus an impossibly glorious spa. When it’s time to leave you might just shed a tear.
