Two new The Ritz-Carlton properties will debut in early 2021. The Ritz-Carlton, Paradise Valley opens in the first quarter. The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands is set to open during the second quarter.
Located minutes from downtown Scottsdale, Arizona, The Ritz-Carlton, Paradise Valley is situated on 20 acres. The new-build property features 215 guestrooms and a 16,000-square-foot spa, all with views of nearby Camelback Mountain. To prepare for its opening, the property pivoted during construction to incorporate new safety features. A Plasma Air was installed in each guestroom and common space to reduce airborne viruses and bacteria. Also opening in 2021 is The Palmeraie, a $2 billion shopping and dining destination. The Palmeraie will feature more than 60 luxury boutiques and 12 restaurants, with The Ritz-Carlton, Paradise Valley at its center.
The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands will be the first property for the Ritz-Carlton brand to open in the region. The Fair Islands is an archipelago, with three other luxury properties and the Fari Marina, a bustling tourist destination with boutiques, restaurants and a beach club. Villas at the property will range from one to three bedrooms. In addition to the Ritz’s legendary service, guests can take advantage of the resort’s dining venues, signature spa, fitness center and recreational facilities.

Family gatherings are extra special this year and we chose to celebrate a milestone birthday in New Orleans. The JW Marriott New Orleans, across the street from the historic French Quarter, is ideally situated for exploring the city. Streetcars roll in front of the property and are especially fun for first-time visitors. Within a ¾-mile radius, we could walk to the National WWII Museum, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Sazerac House, Harrah’s Casino, the Shops of Canal Place and numerous restaurants.

You can always count on your trusty neighborhood Indian restaurant to offer most of Northern India’s greatest hits (baigan bartha, butter chicken, dal, spinach paneer) and several favorites from the south (Thali platters with sambar and masala dosa wraps). However, aerospace industry executive-turned-restaurateur Mihir Lad and veteran chef Sagar Ghosh get their well-traveled and experienced Los Angeles foodie customers want an Indian dining experience they won’t find at regular spots. What makes Arth Bar + Kitchen a “destination”? Think Kolkata fish fry, Sexy Fries (Ghosh’s spin on poutine topped with curry, green chutney, tomato gravy and mayo), Old Monk Drunken Wings (rum-infused chicken wings), and the addictive LAAL Mirch Ka Paneer Tikka. And that’s just the appetizer selection.
