The Ritz-Carlton Naples, Tiburón
Golf Meets Glamour
What it is
A dreamy golfers mecca thanks two 18-hole courses designed by Greg Norman, 295 luxe guest rooms, a massage and fitness center, an alfresco pool, and four toothsome restaurants.
What it isn't
Equipped with its own ginormous spa—but their free shuttle will ferry your golf-weary bod to the 51,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Spa, Naples, where treatments include seaweed wraps and hydra-facials.
What we think
Greg Norman was once the top-ranked golfer on the entire planet. So it’s perhaps no surprise that he always goes for the best…and this resort, bearing two courses he designed at Tiburón Golf Club, more than delivers. Most of the guest rooms and suites here have balconies overlooking the links, plus pampering finishes and amenities to wow any winner of the U.S. Open. Expect sumptuous Frette linens; goose down comforters and pillows; spa-like marble baths; and twice-daily housekeeping complete with evening turndown service. Don’t miss having at least one breakfast at Lemonía, a locavore restaurant with regional produce (including some of the freshest citrus you’ll ever taste) and a weekend brunch so over-the-top you’ll find plenty of Naples locals indulging in it.
You're here because
You’re so obsessed with golf that half of your blazers are Masters green. Greg Norman’s courses are among your favorite to play, and this one has been voted the Best in Florida (which is really saying something! Floridians love their golf.)
Set overlooking the 18th hole, Bella Vista is exactly the type of clubhouse-style golf joint you can picture Arnold Palmer in. Your dinner tonight? Blackened grouper, enjoyed to a backdrop of live jazz. Enjoy The Reservoir as well, which celebrates Florida’s connected waterways with a variety of poolside experiences for the entire family. It includes waterslides, a winding river, and a children’s splash area. Find your poolside oasis in Naples with luxury cabanas and exclusive services overlooking the Reservoir.
