Ritz-Carlton Naples Reopening Following Huge Refurbishment

New pools, bungalows and cabanas have been added to the Florida resort.

Following a major refurbishment and extension that started in 2021 and takes the venerable resort's guest experience to new heights, The Ritz-Carlton Naples reopens on July 6, 2023. The storied resort on Florida's Gulf Coast will open the Vanderbilt Tower, which has three new dining options, a large new Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, and more than 70 club-level guestrooms. 

The newly redesigned resort has newly designed outdoor areas, such as new pools, bungalows, and cabanas, in addition to major renovations to each of the 474 guest rooms and suites. 

"We are thrilled to announce our opening date and look forward to welcoming back our Ladies and Gentlemen soon as we prepare for our first guests to check in this July at our new resort," said Ritz-Carlton Area General Manager Mark Ferland. "Our goal was to create an even more exceptional guest experience, and we are confident that our new additions will exceed expectations."

The Vanderbilt Tower is the resort's Club Level tower with enhanced amenities and direct views of the Gulf of Mexico, is one of the renovation's standout features. The new Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, which has a dedicated full-service bar, a video room, unique programming, and five daily gourmet presentations, is the gem of the new tower.

The Ritz-Carlton, Naples' freshly renovated entrance experience includes an elaborate lobby bar that draws inspiration from decades of festivities. The bar offers a selection of more than fifty carefully chosen champagnes and sparkling wines, along with a Signature Champagne Tasting Experience created by Master Sommelier Elyse Lambert.

The three new dining options accessible to visitors, including Sofra, a new restaurant that emphasizes vegetables and is inspired by the shareable, savory meals of the Eastern Mediterranean, will delight foodies. Additionally, Moka will make its debut with a broad selection of coffees crafted from carefully chosen beans chosen in collaboration with a third-generation roasting family.  The resort's popular restaurants, such as The Grill and Gumbo Limbo, will be further complemented by a third restaurant concept, which will be unveiled later this year. 

The resort's family pool, adult pool, lap pool, and hot tub are all included in the renovated poolside experience that will be available to guests. The utmost in poolside relaxation and elegance is offered by ten fully enclosed, air-conditioned bungalows with cascading doors, each with its own private bath, television, entertainment system, and service bar for refreshments. Ten new cabanas with plush seats, ceiling fans, and televisions will also be built to the pool area, providing an opulent foundation for outdoor enjoyment. 

The resort's 474 guestrooms and suites have all been refurbished, and each one now emanates a timeless, informal elegance that pays homage to the resort's history of coastal refinement. The luxury resort can now accommodate groups and leisure guests in more than 90 multi-room suites thanks to the installation of more than 60 suites, including Royal Suites with three bedrooms and bathrooms for families and prolonged stays.

The iconic coastal luxury experience, sunsets at Gumbo Limbo, and the unmatched level of service and hospitality of the Ladies and Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton are just a few of the core experiences and traditions that guests can look forward to at the re-opening.
