Nostalgic for Puerto Rico


Step back in time to a swanky era where cigar smoke permeated the air and live music filled your soul in San Juan. This resort embodies all the classic touches that evoke a sense of place from the moment you enter the lobby. Closer than the forts and cobblestone streets of Old San Juan, the Fairmont El San Juan immediately sets the stage for a Puerto Rican holiday. By day, the dark wood walls and ceiling soften the bright sunlight and invite the luxury traveler to sink into its rich leather furniture and enjoy the opulence of the lobby while being dazzled by the imposing 7,000 crystal chandelier. By night, this same lobby comes alive in a very sophisticated way. Sway your way through the entrance as the beat of live Latin music pulls you deeper into the heart of the resort as though it were your own pulse.

This inescapable sense of place is woven into the fabric of your stay. The pools echo back to a time where sunbathing was glamorous and space was limitless. Float aimlessly, on your back, in the wellness pool while gazing up at the magnificent 300 year old Banyan tree. History is not fabricated here, it is made here. This is a fabulous place to create vacation memories that will last a lifetime. Amenities include Well & Being Spa and Fitness Center, paddleboards, luxury cabanas, signature dining at Caña by Juliana Gonzalez, El San Juan Beach Club, Meat Market, Riva, and the Chandelier Bar.  Indulge in modern tropical splendor with old-world elegance in any of its rooms, suites or villas. The beach is only steps away from its pools and cabanas. This island is a hotspot for those seeking relaxation, a touch of history, and a vibrant Caribbean getaway. Fairmont El San Juan is an excellent choice when you are looking for something swanky and elegant for your next Swellegant stay.
