The legendary Ritz-Carlton resort in Naples, Florida has entered a new chapter with the completion of its major transformation project.

The luxury beachfront resort is now welcoming guests into its new tower, restaurants, rooms and outdoor spaces, with new experiences also on offer.

Heritage and glamour

Following its significant transformation, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples has unveiled its new Vanderbilt Tower, featuring a Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge and over 70 Club Level guest rooms, along with its new lobby, three new dining experiences, new outdoor spaces including poolside bungalows, and 474 redesigned rooms and suites.

Architect Cooper Carry and Parker Torres Design worked in partnership to create interiors that honour the resort’s heritage, drawing inspiration from the historic glamour of travel and the destination’s distinct coastal elegance.

“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 honour 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.”

Additions and enhancements

Guests are now met with a new front drive and new entrance area where the Lobby Bar pays homage to decades of celebration with its focus on champagne in a space pairing modern lounge seating with a marble-topped bar and sculptural light installation.

Guests will check in to the 474 updated guest rooms and suites, exhibiting timeless style, and new Club accommodations in The Vanderbilt Tower, which reimagines the resort’s Club Level experience. This 14-floor expansion adds more than 70 Club Level rooms to the accommodation offering, along with dedicated check-in and the 4,000-sq-ft Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge with dining options, a bar and curated experiences such as cooking demos.

The resort also now features eight distinct dining and drinking venues, from the champagne-focused Lobby Lounge to the vegetable-forward restaurant Sofra taking inspiration from the Eastern Mediterranean.

Elevating its poolside experience, the resort has then added 10 fully enclosed, air-conditioned bungalows with cascading doors to the poolside area, along with 10 new cabanas. The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Spa, which first opened in January 2022, adds to the overall resort experience with its immersive wellness offering.
