Puerto Rico's Royal Isabela announces offer of golf packages

ISABELA, Puerto Rico -- Golfers in search of an ultimate yet intimate island escape need look no further than Royal Isabela, the world-class destination resort and golf club perched on the dramatic bluffs on the northwest coast of Puerto Rico.

Named "Best Resort in Puerto Rico" by Islands Magazine, Royal Isabela is poised to welcome golfers to one of the most beautiful overlooks on Puerto Rico's northwest coast. And when it comes to golfers, the more the merrier.

The Royal Isabela Golf Package includes:
• Lodging for two guests in a beautifully designed, 1500-square-foot, freestanding one-bedroom casita, with extensive outdoor patio space, plunge pool, and ocean views (each has a living room, bedroom, and over-sized bathroom)
• Daily round of golf for two on the highly regarded Golf Links at Royal Isabela
• Continental breakfast for two daily
• Seasonal rates per night: $999 (Nov. 1-Dec. 18, 2013), $1,299 (Dec. 19, 2013-April 30, 2014), $799 (May 1-Sept. 30, 2014).

The Royal Isabela Group Golf Package, based on booking a minimum of 10 casitas per day, includes:
• Lodging for two guests in a beautifully designed, 1500-square-foot, freestanding one-bedroom casita, with extensive outdoor patio space, plunge pool, and ocean views (each has a living room, bedroom, and over-sized bathroom)
• Daily round of golf for two on the highly regarded Golf Links at Royal Isabela
• Continental breakfast for two daily
• Seasonal group rates per night: $799 (Nov. 1-Dec. 18, 2013), $999 (Dec. 19, 2013-April 30, 2014), $699 (May 1-Sept. 30, 2014).

Each package is based on availability (plus applicable taxes and service charges). Caddies are required for each twosome; caddie fees and gratuities are additional.

Perched atop cliffs that range in elevation from 150 to 350 feet above sea level, Royal Isabela has preserved an intimate paradise for the beautifully situated casitas in close proximity to the golf course and other amenities.

The golf course, called The Links at Royal Isabela, has been highly praised since opening in 2011, earning kudos from GOLF Magazine, The Robb Report in its "Best of the Best" issue, and Cigar Aficionado. Many others are already describing it as among the best in the Caribbean as it sits high atop dramatic bluffs, offering magnificent views along the coast and into the Atlantic.

There are only 20 casitas on Royal Isabela's 426 oceanfront acres, preserving the natural serenity of the property. Each casita has a plunge pool for waking up in the morning, or for cooling off in the afternoon. Trees and shrubs are strategically positioned so every guest has tunnel vision out to the sea, but no peripheral vision next door.

The Restaurant at La Casa offers fine farm-to-table dining with locally sourced ingredients. With the benefit of River Canyon Farm and the property's organic garden, Executive Chef Jose Carles's daily menus include local, fresh seafood, homemade pastas, and traditional Puerto Rican dishes.

An experienced hospitality staff at Royal Isabela oversees attention to every detail, including transportation arrangements, in-room amenities, dinner and golf reservations, room service, concierge, and complimentary transportation around the property.

To book an individual or group golf vacation at the "Best Resort in Puerto Rico," call the concierge at (787) 609-5888 or toll free at (855) 609-5888. For more information on Royal Isabela, access the web site at www.royalisabela.com.
