Ritz-Carlton Enters the Yachting Sphere
| LAST UPDATE 01/11/2023
The multinational luxury hotel company currently operates 108 hotels around the world in 30 countries, while 46 are planned for the future. The global hotel brand has exceeded all traveler expectations - and now, they are continuing to shock clients further after announcing the newly introduced yacht collection. Here's a closer look.
The Ritz-Carlton has been dominating the hotel industry since 1983. The American company has soared through global networks, plotting hotels in almost every luxury destination. This way, regular clients will always have a place they can call home, no matter where they are. India's branch announced the debut of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, marking "the first luxury groups' first foray into luxury yachting space," with the hope to "revolutionize the luxury cruising industry and create an entirely unique category," noted Luxury Lifestyle Magazine. The new yacht operation differentiates from any other holiday experience. Chris Gabaldon, senior vice president of Marriott International, said, "The Ritz-Carlton has long been rooted in innovation and service excellence... as we continue to evolve our legendary brand, we could not be more excited to give our the guests the opportunity to experience The Ritz-Carlton in a new way."
Cabin guests can expect "unique itineraries and immersive experiences." Booking guests can choose to sail through the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Along these voyages, passengers can explore Spain's Balearic Islands along the French Riviera, as well as the bright blue exotic shores of Aruba and the Costa Rica coastlines. Depending on the season, the intimate-sized yacht, the Evrima, will allow unique excursions through Mykonos, Saint-Tropez, and St. Barts. The 190-meter-long yacht has 149 suites, providing enough cabin space to accommodate 298 passengers with the finest Ritz-Carlon comforting service. If you're willing to go the extra mile, there are also two-story loft suites with a king bed with luxury linens and a double vanity bathroom on offer. Still, all rooms feature a private terrace, while in accordance with selected accommodation, there is the option to have suites combined into a larger, "open-concept" space. While the adults of the liner can relax in the tranquil SPA and 111SKIN spa treatments, the children will be super busy with the Ritz Kids program for ages four to twelve. Wind down and finish off the day with a memorable dining experience, choosing from The Evrima Room, Southeast Asian Cuisine, a sit-down sushi bar, and a three Michelin-starred restaurant.
Guests will be allowed to choose from liner-designed or personalized offshore experiences. Using the Concierge Ashore, custom private tours can be organized, including local guides with inside-out knowledge of locations. Have a Ritz-Carlton experience like no other, but this time at sea. For a bonus experience, the yachts from the hotel's collection are also available for private charter.
