The latest chapter of The Ritz-Carlton Naples‘ storied history has arrived, as the luxury Florida resort is now open and welcoming guests once again.

All 474 of the hotel’s guest rooms and suites have undergone substantial renovations, and the resort now offers new outside areas such as new pools, bungalows, and cabanas.

“It is an honor to bring this incredible transformation to life at our iconic resort. The stunning redesign coupled with new experiences invites guests to celebrate their memories and create new traditions,” said Ritz-Carlton Area General Manager, Mark Ferland.

Cooper Carry, an architect, and Parker Torres Design, an interior design firm, worked together to develop interiors that respect the resort’s history and traditions. They drew inspiration from the classic glitz of travel and the location’s distinct coastal beauty. The Ritz-Carlton, Naples creates a timeless luxury experience for visitors by paying attention to the traditional Gulf Coast characteristics and giving a nod to the area’s past.

As visitors enter a brand-new front drive and The Ritz-Carlton Naples emerges into view, excitement increases. As soon as they arrive, visitors notice the upgraded atmosphere of the resort’s renovation.

The renovated Lobby Bar pays homage to decades of celebrations with a signature champagne menu as a testament to its history as Naples’ social hub. The chic room has a stunning sculptural lighting installation with crystal pendants suspended high above the marble-topped bar, as well as tastefully contemporary lounge seating.

The 474 guestrooms and suites at the resort, including the brand-new club accommodations, have all been refurbished with a look that radiates a relaxed elegance and timelessness. Layouts with more room give families, groups, and extended stays more alternatives.

The new Vanderbilt Tower, a 14-floor addition that adds more than 70 club-level rooms to the resort’s options, is one of the most noticeable improvements to the resort’s footprint. A dedicated check-in area, larger, luxuriously decorated guestrooms, and an improved Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge experience are all included in the tower. With its expansive 4,000 square feet and private dining and entertainment areas, this new Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge is a pioneer within the brand. Curated programming links visitors to distinctive resort and local experiences.

The Ritz-Carlton Naples offers a dynamic culinary adventure with new concepts introducing modern flare and flavors that expand upon the already comprehensive offerings offered at the resort. The resort is now home to eight distinctive dining locations.
