NAPLES, FL—The Ritz-Carlton, Naples reopened today following the completion of a multimillion-dollar refurbishment project, which consisted of a complete overhaul of all 450 guestrooms, suites and corridors, three dining outlets and Artisans ballroom.
Undertaken this summer, the renovation also included the various structural, mechanical and engineering upgrades throughout the property. The resort ceased operations for the first time in its 27-year history to complete the project over a two-month period.
Designed by Wimberly Interiors, the new guestrooms offer a color pallet of blue, green and gray—inspired by the Gulf of Mexico and its surrounding landscape. Two of the resort’s dining options and the bar were transformed by New York-based design agency, Blue Plate. The Sushi Bar, now known as Dusk, features an extended balcony, which provides additional outdoor seating and offers views of the Gulf of Mexico.
