Royal Isabela, Puerto Rico extends accommodation

Royal Isabela - Press Release
Royal Isabela, the $100 million golf community and private membership club perched on the dramatic bluffs of Costa Isabela at the northwest edge of Puerto Rico, has opened “Las Casitas,” reserved for guest stays, and “La Casa,” the main hospitality center that houses the property’s signature restaurant.
Last year, the Golf Links at Royal Isabela, designed by Stanley and Charlie Pasarell and golf architect David W. Pfaff, opened to great praise. GOLF Magazine named it among the “top new courses to watch for” in the 2013 edition of the World’s Top 100 Golf Courses.
Located 90 minutes from San Juan International Airport and just 20 minutes from Aguadilla International Airport, the Royal Isabela community stretches along 426 oceanfront acres from ocean side to the tops of cliffs that range in elevation from 150 to 350 feet above sea level.
Guests at Royal Isabela have their choice of 20 beautifully designed one-bedroom Casitas, with expansive indoor and outdoor space, ocean views and close proximity to the golf course and other amenities. Each Casita has an outdoor patio with an ocean view, and a private terrace with its own plunge pool.
An experienced hospitality staff at Royal Isabela oversees every detail, including a courtesy call before arrival to determine transportation needs, in-room amenities, dinner and golf reservations, room service, concierge and complimentary transportation around the property.
Casitas rates range from $609 to $1409 (low to high season) per night, which includes breakfast and golf for two each day of the stay. Members receive preferred pricing. There are no minimum stay requirements during low season; there is a two-night stay preferred during high season (November-April), and required on weekends during high season.
La Casa—the community’s “home” and nerve center—sits at one of the region’s highest points, so it is cooled by ocean breezes while offering panoramic views over land and sea. Besides check-in and other resort functions, La Casa is where guests will find The Restaurant, the comfortable Library, and the Croquet Bar, which looks over the 18th hole. In keeping with island traditions, La Casa has been designed in Spanish colonial style, from its stone tower to century-old roof tiles, as well as wrought-iron chandeliers, antique furniture, and artwork.
The Restaurant at La Casa has been created under the guidance of award-winning chef David Pasternack of New York City’s famed Esca Restaurant and noted restaurant consultant John Sergi. The restaurant offers the freshest in farm-to-table dining with the majority of the fruits, vegetables and herbs literally grown in the soil of Royal Isabela. The intimately sized Restaurant at La Casa features eight tables inside, seating for five at the pizza oven bar, and more tables outside on the terrace.
With the benefit of Royal Isabela’s River Canyon Farm and Organic Gatehouse Garden, the executive chef can combine locally sourced ingredients with traditional European and Puerto Rican cooking techniques. Daily menus include fresh, line-caught, local seafood such as lobster, grouper, snapper and dorado (mahi-mahi), as well as homemade pastas and an array of traditional Puerto Rican dishes. A select variety of wines from around the world complement the daily menu options.
The founders of Royal Isabela are Stanley Pasarell, President, and Charles Pasarell, both descendants of Dr. Manuel Zeno Gandia, a celebrated Puerto Rican literary figure. The brothers, who were born and raised in Puerto Rico and in the 1960’s were dominant in American tennis at the junior, college, and national levels, bring their love of the local culture and hospitality, as well as a great passion for golf and nature to the property. Edwin Perez, a well-respected business leader in Puerto Rico, also is a partner in the project.
