Update: Ritz-Carlton will open new luxury resort in Aruba in 2012

Earlier this morning we posted an announcement that luxury hotel group Ritz-Carlton is expanding to its line of resorts and opening a 320-room resort on the Caribbean island of Aruba’s famed Palm Beach. Seems the news is a little premature…

We received a note from Ritz-Carlton letting us know that while there have been discussions, there has been no official announcement. As such, we’ve removed the post.

So, take the news with a grain of salt, folks… or a grain of sand, whatever you fancy, and we’ll be back soon with an update on the story.
