The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Las Colinas, opened last month while undergoing a major $55 million renovation and becoming the newest addition to The Ritz-Carlton’s collection of more than 110 hotels and resorts worldwide.
The property has a 38-year-old legacy in the Dallas area, formerly as Las Colinas Four Seasons. It was acquired in 2022 through a joint venture between Trinity Investments and Partners Group.
“Our commitment is to deliver The Ritz-Carlton’s exceptional service in a destination that truly distinguishes itself,” Tod Morrow, general manager for The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Las Colinas, said in a statement. “We’re eager to introduce our guests, whether local or visitors, to innovative offerings and distinctive experiences that forge lasting memories.”
Renovations and amenities
The initial renovation phase was guided by design firms Jeffrey Beers International and Leo A Daly, and it introduces several enhancements, the Ritz-Carlton said.
The enhancements include the introduction of Bar Juniper, a new lobby bar spotlighting clear spirits. The design of that space incorporates feminine touches inspired by indigenous Texas vegetation, the company said.
The hotel’s 427 guest rooms have been revamped with elements that capture the “free-spirited essence and lifestyle” reflective of the resort’s historical roots as the former Little Ranch on the Hills. Ritz-Carlton said the property offers new meeting spaces and state-of-the-art ballroom facilities, covering 80,000 square feet.
Located on 400 acres, The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Las Colinas is sited on a former family ranch minutes from downtown Dallas.
Certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary
The property has two 18-hole golf courses and holds the certification of an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, “capturing the innate beauty of Texas,” Ritz-Carlton said. Adjacent to the resort is The Nelson Sports and Golf Club, providing guests with access to expansive recreational facilities, including outdoor tennis courts, racquetball, a world-class fitness center complete with Technogym equipment, a group exercise studio featuring classes from aerial yoga to cycling, and more.
“The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Las Colinas is a highly anticipated addition to the brand,” Jamie Kerr, VP and global brand leader, The Ritz-Carlton, said in a statement. “The property presents a wonderful opportunity to savor Texas’ natural landscape while indulging in luxurious accommodations, all while maintaining access to the city—a unique offering that we are delighted to provide our guests.”
More luxury enhancements on the way
More enhancements on the property are still to come, the company said.
This month will mark the opening of Knife Italian, the latest restaurant concept by Michelin-starred chef John Tesar. It weaves together the Italian heritage that is deeply rooted in Texas, the Ritz-Carlton said.
Also, Campo Coffee & Provisions is set to debut, offering a European-inspired, locally roasted espresso program and a sommelier-curated selection of wines.
The company said that the 14,000-square-foot on-site salon and spa will transition into the world class The Ritz-Carlton Spa and that the resort pool is undergoing a complete reimagination, featuring luxury cabanas, expanded seating, and a new poolside bar to enhance the overall guest experience.
The Ritz-Carlton Club on the second floor will open this month, allowing guests looking for a highly personalized experience to enjoy modern Texas luxury in a distinctly immersive way, Ritz-Carlton said.
