About The Hotel

Located on three miles of pristine beachfront overlooking the gentle waters of the Gulf of Mexico, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples offers outstanding accommodation and facilities for families. The pace of life on Florida’s southern Gulf Coast is so laid back it’s almost of another time; surrounded by nature and protected parkland the area is known as Florida’s Last Paradise. The cosmopolitan city of Naples is just a short distance away and the resort can organise offshore fishing tours and sailing on the Gulf of Mexico. Kids will love the unique interactive “Nature’s Wonders” program with its eleven aquariums and science lab within the resort whilst parents can enjoy the spa, water sports and tennis.

The Ritz-Carlton, Naples has a heated family pool, relaxation pool, and an interactive children’s pool and guests can hire a private cabana for a completely relaxing day by the pool. Swimming lessons are available for smaller guests as well as water aerobic classes for a low-impact workout. Peter Burwash International (PBI) at The Ritz-Carlton Resorts of Naples offers a world class tennis programme with four lighted Har-Tru courts, a full-service pro shop, drills, clinics and personal instruction from USPTA certified tennis professionals and there is a 36-hole golf course at the nearby sister hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. The spa features rejuvenating and healing steam rooms, saunas and aqua lounges, along with an outdoor mineral pool and the fitness centre is installed with state of the art equipment. From the beach there is parasailing and kayaking or stand-up paddle boards, body boards and waverunners to rent.

Rooms are categorised by location and view and some room types connect to afford extra space for families. All rooms sleep up to four adults and start at 41 square metres with a large King or two double beds and open plan sitting area. Decorated in dark wood and with large marble bathrooms, décor is in a “beach house” style and all rooms include an Honour Bar.

There is a choice of six restaurants and a gourmet shop which the kids will love, serving homemade gelato, lemon pound cake, an assortment of cookies and key lime pies!

Children’s menus are available in all restaurants.

The Ritz Kids programme provides a collection of activities based on four pillars – water, land, environmental responsibility and culture – and kids are swept away by everything from coral reefs and forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even food. Nature’s Wonders is an environmentally focused program at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, led by resort conservationist. The programme allows kids aged 5 – 12 to learn about and discover nature in a colourful, living eco-sanctuary, featuring 11 aquariums that house sea creatures like sharks, crabs, turtles and eels. During the day there are hands-on discovery programmes using a science-based curriculum and kid-sized lab, complete with microscopes and visual stimuli like preserved reptile skeletons—all the tools to help a budding marine biologist explore a new world.
