“How do you design a hotel that’s unlike any other in the world?” poses Theresa Fatino, global design partner for The Ritz-Carlton. The collection of hotels and resorts around the world is synonymous with luxury, offering guests lavish accommodations, thoughtful amenities and exceptional service. Enduring memories are not built on these elements alone, however. Each property’s considered design results in an environment that cannot be replicated anywhere else. “We believe luxury is in the details, and we love to surprise our guests with special touches that make lasting impressions,” says Fatino. The design’s impact can be experienced in properties spanning the globe, with Zen gardens in Japan, fleeting art installations in Puerto Rico, and the creation of other magical realms beyond.
