Take a look at the best luxury hotels in Naples.
Located in the heart of 5th Avenue, the 119-room Inn on Fifth is a boutique option that is as glitzy as its surroundings. Rooms are upscale and stylish, with a sophisticated black-and-white color scheme and pops of red, and great amenities such as iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The serene rooftop pool deck is a favorite for a quiet day in the sun, and the spa offers signature massages in a luxurious space with wooden floors and a soothing earth-tone palette. There are two excellent restaurants on-site, but breakfast is only served in the Club Level lounge, which is off-limits to guests staying in the main building. Those looking for a more family-friendly hotel may prefer the Naples Bay Resort, located a five-minute drive away.
The Inn at Pelican Bay is a four-pearl boutique property located on a small lake in the popular golf resort town of Naples, Florida, a short free shuttle ride from the beach. The 100 rooms were renovated in 2016 and many have balconies with lakefront views. Property features include a small lake with a fountain feature, a lagoon pool with lounge chairs, and a well-equipped fitness center with cardio and weight-training equipment. There's no restaurant, but the hotel does offer a breakfast buffet that -- along with Wi-Fi -- is included in the daily resort fee. Travelers looking to be right on the beach may want to consider the Edgewater Beach Hotel instead, but bear in mind that past guests have complained about worn furniture in its rooms.
The 454-room Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa is a luxury resort in an upscale neighborhood a five-minute drive to Estero Bay. Contemporary rooms have a host of amenities, including private balconies, iPod docking stations, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs, while some also offer Estero Bay views, personal concierges, free continental breakfast, and Club Lounge access. The three outdoor pools, hot tub, and private beach are a highlight, along with several restaurants and bars. A full-service spa, 18-hole golf course, sports equipment rentals, and several 24/7 services are also available. However, there is a mandatory daily resort fee and pets have rules and fees. Check rates at the nearby Hyatt Coconut Plantation, a luxurious property with lush grounds and a lazy river.
The 85-room upscale Naples Bay Resort and Marina is something like a small Italianate resort city, with a marina and bay at its center, and a sophisticated European vibe that feels many miles away from its beachy Naples surroundings. The grounds are huge, with three restaurants, five pools -- including an adults-only lap pool and a lazy river -- plus a tennis center, enormous fitness center, and full-service spa. There's a free shuttle for local destinations. Guest rooms are spacious and classic, with private balconies, while suites offer full kitchens and, in some cases, marina views. With its close proximity to popular Fifth Avenue, an array of sophisticated on-site features, and a kids' club, this is a great option for families seeking an elegant Naples getaway. Expect to pay a daily resort fee.
Hyatt Residence Club Bonita Springs, Coconut Plantation is an upscale timeshare resort set in lush landscaped grounds bordering a golf course. The 108 guest suites are spacious and designed for long stays with fully equipped kitchens and living and dining spaces; while decorated to a high standard, they show some wear and tear. There are four outdoor swimming pools on-site as well as a 1,000-foot-long lazy river ride. And the property offers access to an exclusive private island beach shared with the nearby Hyatt Regency. Since this is a timeshare property rather than a luxury resort, 24-hour service is not available, and the on-site restaurants close in the early evening -- so having a car helps. Travelers looking for a more full-service experience should consider the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, just one mile down the road, though rates reflect the boost in amenities.
This hotel was impacted by Hurricane Irma in September 2017. We will update our review as soon as we have more information. The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples is a 295-room, five-pearl property with a Mediterranean style located about a 10-minute drive from the beach. For those who can afford its high rates, the property offers VIP service and plenty of luxe amenities, including a golf club with two PGA-level courses. The heated outdoor pool, spa with treatments for golfers, and two restaurants make this a good option for golf enthusiasts, as well as families who don't want to leave the resort confines. Top-notch rooms and suites have balconies, premium movie channels, and marble bathrooms -- but no free Wi-Fi. Sand-seekers may prefer the Naples Grande Beach Resort, which offers a similar array of amenities plus a beachfront.
The five-pearl Ritz-Carlton, Naples is a true luxury resort in a spectacular private beachfront setting. For those who can afford the steep rates, it offers VIP service and a top-notch array of amenities. Its 420 guest rooms are elegant and stylish, but not overly luxurious or opulent, with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minibars, iPod docs, terrycloth robes, and marble bathrooms with Asprey bath products. Many units have private balconies with waterfront views. Among the hotel's excellent lineup of features include two large pools (one that’s adults-only), a massive spa and and fitness center, and seven dining options. Travelers looking to spend a bit less but still want an upscale stay on the beach can consider the luxury Naples Grande Beach Resort.
The Naples Grande Beach Resort is a huge upscale beach and golf resort set in mangroves lining Florida's Gulf Coast. Most of the 474 classically decorated rooms and suites are located in the main 18-story building, and those on higher floors have lovely views of the Gulf. There are also 50 Garden Villas out in the grounds, near the Hibiscus Hideaway lap pool. The resort offers a huge array of features for families, couples, and convention delegates, including three pools (one with a huge waterslide), a spa with its own separate villa for group spa treatments, a huge array of indoor and outdoor meeting space, multiple bars and restaurants, a big fitness center, and 15 tennis courts. While it's really at the top of its game in terms of facilities, travelers looking for something more intimate may want to consider the Hyatt Coconut Plantation instead.
