Dip your toes in The Reservoir: The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples’ new immersive outdoor water experience. Spanning over 14,000 square feet, this outdoor oasis is complete with a 6 00-foot lazy river (aptly named Drift), three exhilarating waterslides in the Rush zone—which includes two tandem body slides and a tube slide—and Cascade, a s plash zone for the littles. “Our guests visit the resort to make new memories together in the Florida sunshine, and we are thrilled to b e able to set the stage for those moments with the debut of The Reservoir and our new outdoor experiences,” says Jenny Piccione, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples. “As we continue on this journey of transformation, we continue to enhance the resort experience for guests with new opportunities to play, relax and dine.”
Stepping out of the water, six spacious cabanas sit pretty boasting full indoor-meets-outdoor concepts. Think wet bars, flat-screen TVs and an ample amount of amenities from butler services and fresh fruit to wireless internet, one complimentary cocktail per person and so much more. In line with the Cabana’s cocktail-inspired names (which all pay homage to its neighboring restaurant Ria), guests can indulge in private culinary and cocktail experiences. With tableside tequila flights, an alfresco tasting menu of South American dishes and other culinary packages, sitting poolside has never tasted sweeter.
The golf course and resort
Speaking of food, Ria rounds out the resort’s facelift with its fiery Latin American flavors and a brandnew 3,600-square-foot event lawn just off the main dining patio. Its tranquil aesthetic effortlessly flows throughout the restaurant with natural wood, wicker and teak furniture and book-matched stone while lush greenery and picturesque views bring a flood of natural light into the space. Spearheaded by chef Aldo Novoa Rodriguez the menu brings traditional, homemade bites to the table. Chow down on Mexican favorites like the cochinita pibil, or go for the Peruvian lom saltado. 2600 Tiburon Drive, Naples, 239.593.2000
