Described as a blend between Pebble Beach and the Old Course at St Andrews, Royal Isabela is truly remarkable luxury golf resort situated on Puerto Rico's northwest coast. The 7,667 yard championship course provides a demanding test, with a hilly front nine routed through jungle-like flora, and an attention-grabbing back stretch bearing a links-like feel with a series of cliff-top holes that must rank among the best ocean-side holes in the world.

Royal Isabela

Royal Isabela's natural rises and falls accentuate the dramatic setting, as wide fairways stretch over various undulations, hugging the edges of the Caribbean.

Conceived by Puerto Rico natives Stanley and Charlie Pasarell, the brothers teamed up with architect David Pfaff to bring their 426-acre vision to breathtaking reality. With its oceanfront location, the team says they "found" holes more than designing them on paper, resulting in a course that appears very natural and wild in parts. The landscape's native grasses, natural sand dunes and deep canyons are integral to the layout, while sod-faced bunkers add a Scottish flair to this island gem.

There are six sets of tees at Royal Isabela, with the tips stretched to a maximum of 7,667 yards as a par 73. This breathtaking championship layout is not limited to one or two highlights, however the course's 17th is arguably the showstopper. The par 3, which plays over the seaside bluffs, can play up to 200 yards. The green is guarded on the right-hand side by a "chicken tree" that lies beside the green. The 18th hole then plays back uphill toward the clubhouse to a green surrounded by mounding.

Accommodation

Private and exclusive, Royal Isabela is not just for golf. The resort has 20 freestanding Casitas or "little houses" designed for the ultimate in Puerto Rican hospitality. Each Casita encompasses 1,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space and is sited to best catch Royal Isabela's stunning ocean vistas with minimal impact to the environment. 

Each Casita features an airy living room and bedroom with natural wood floors and ceilings, as well as a generously sized bathroom with separate tub and large shower room that also opens to a private deck. Luxurious amenities include two LCD TVs, wet bar, Frette linens and robes, and Gilchrist & Soames bath products. Take advantage of complimentary high-speed Internet access to stay in touch or retreat to your own private pool for a refreshing dip.

Royal Isabela's dining room, the Restaurant at La Casa, features farm-to-table dishes using many local ingredients. The restaurant also boasts a wood-burning stove and a fine wine collection. 

Besides the golf course, Royal Isabela's gated complex includes a huge pool, golf shop, tennis courts and a separate outside bar and dining area.
