A stalwart in Southwest Florida, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples has officially reopened after a multi-year renovation project.
“We are proud to welcome our Ladies and Gentlemen, loyal guests, and new visitors, as well as the incredibly supportive local community to The Ritz-Carlton, Naples once more,” said Ritz-Carlton Area General Manager, Mark Ferland. “It is an honor to bring this incredible transformation to life at our iconic resort.”
Let’s take a look at what guests can expect now that the property is open once again!
The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Has a Whole New Look and Feel
After the completion of a renovation project that began in 2021, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples has reopened with significant changes. The most noticeable of these is a brand-new tower, known as the Vanderbilt Tower. It houses over 70 club-level guest rooms as well as an all-new Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge with a full-service bar, a media room, 5 food and beverage offerings per day, and stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico.
Guests can also enjoy the resort’s 8 dining outlets, a new lobby, new pools, bungalows, and cabanas, as well as a top-to-bottom redesign for all 474 of the property’s guest rooms and suites.
Guests will notice the enhancements to the property immediately upon arrival thanks to the reimagining of the lobby. It’s a soaring, elegant space featuring a bar that offers “a Signature Champagne Tasting Experience designed by Master Sommelier Elyse Lambert,” and over 50 Champagne and sparkling wine varieties.
Ritz-Carlton Naples Amenities
As far as eating and drinking goes, there’s plenty to look forward to here, including:
- Sofra, a “vegetable-forward” restaurant with an emphasis on dishes inspired by the Mediterranean
- Moka, a coffee shop serving java made “from hand-picked beans selected in partnership with a third-generation roasting family”
- Lobby Bar, in addition to its signature Champagne experience, offers decadent bites like oysters, caviar, crispy tuna, and wagyu truffle sliders with gold leaf
A fourth new restaurant will be announced in the coming weeks and will join tried-and-true spaces Dusk, Gumbo Limbo (reopening July 19, 2023), and The Grill (reopening July 26, 2023).
The resort’s pools have also gotten an upgrade. Guests can enjoy a family pool, an adults-only pool, a dedicated lap pool, and a hot tub.
Poolside bungalows feature “cascading doors” and air conditioning, along with private bathrooms, TVs, entertainment systems, and “service bars.”
A total of 10 private cabanas are available for rent, all of which feature seating options, ceiling fans, and TVs for ultimate vacation relaxation.
And last, but certainly not least, all the guest rooms and suites have been completely renovated with a new design that accentuates the resort’s stunning coastal location. Over 60 suites have been added, meaning the property now offers more than 90 suites with multiple rooms, including a handful of Royal Suites featuring 3 bedrooms and bathrooms.
