The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun; The Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort, Rose Hall, Jamaica; and The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman are all open for business as usual following Hurricane Dean.The announcement was made by Ezzat Coutry, senior vice president, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C.

The hotels incurred no structural damage from the storm and are fully operational. Recovery teams have surveyed the properties and reported fallen trees, limbs and debris, which have been removed to ensure returning guests can enjoy all hotel amenities and services. In addition, all three regional airports are open: Sangster International, Montego Bay, Jamaica; Owen Roberts International, Grand Cayman; and Cancun International Airport in Cancun, Mexico.

“While we are very pleased Hurricane Dean was not as destructive as predicted, we understand many of our guests’ plans have been temporarily disrupted, and we look forward to welcoming them back very soon,” said Coutry. “The hotels are completely prepared to offer our leisure and business customers the same exceptional experience they have come to expect from The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. I encourage everyone with plans to visit our luxury resorts to go ahead with their trips, as our ladies and gentlemen at each hotel are looking forward to welcoming them,” added Coutry.

Guests with reservations at all three hotels between August 15-24 may reschedule their vacation for anytime between now and November 30, 2007, based on availability without penalty.
