Already a popular site for weddings for its truly picturesque setting on the pristine white-sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the resort added another venue option for weddings and receptions in 2013. As part of its multi-million dollar renovation, which was completed in 2013, the resort now offers a new Gulf-view ballroom named The Everglades Room which features a wall of windows that provides incredible panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. So whether your ideal wedding includes a breathtaking sunset over the Gulf of Mexico as your backdrop, gentle breezes as you view the sparkling crystal-clear Gulf waters during the day, or a beautiful ballroom with spectacular views, this tropical paradise is the perfect site for your dream wedding.
With an unparalleled setting on the soft white-sand beach named “America’s Best All-Around Beach” by Travel Channel, The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club features many romantic and picturesque settings that are ideal for your wedding and/or reception. This includes the truly scenic Ocean Lawn that sits serenely at the water’s edge, providing a magnificent view of the beach; the elegant 6,283-square-foot River of Grass ballroom; and several other “picture perfect” venues.
Providing even more incentive to consider the resort for your wedding and/or reception is that the resort opened in 2013 the new 5,000-square-foot Everglades Room, a new Gulf-view ballroom that is dedicated for weddings, banquets, corporate events, and social events. The beautifully-enhanced Everglades Room features a dramatic vaulted ceiling covered with rich draped fabric. It is Naples’ only beachfront ballroom.
In addition to featuring many beautiful sites for the ceremony and reception that will ensure a memorable wedding (with great photos!), the resort features a wealth of on-site offerings that will please any couple and all of the guests. This includes a world-class spa that provides an array of services to pamper, relax and refresh the bride and groom, wedding party and guests. Designed in classic Florida style, the spectacular full-service spa offers many relaxing massages, body treatments and wraps, skincare services, hydrotherapy treatments, a complete fitness center, a full-service salon, and a variety of fitness classes. So whether you want to experience Beach Stone Therapy, a Rehydrating Aromatic Body Treatment, a Relaxation Massage, a Rainforest Body Scrub, a Diamond Radiance Facial, a Spa Pedicure, Bridal Hairstyling, Make-Up Application, or the signature Florida Fruit Fresh Facial, a visit to The Spa should definitely be part of your wedding experience.
Other on-site offerings include a par-72 championship golf course that is consistently recognized as “Naples’ Best Public Golf Course”; the award-winning Mary C. Watkins Tennis Center with 6 Har-Tru courts; 1,000 feet of pristine white-sand beach; a Gulf-front pool complex with two pools and two whirlpools; the award-winning and newly renovated HB’s on the Gulf beachfront restaurant, perfect for the rehearsal dinner; and the popular and recently expanded The Sunset Beach Bar & Grill, consistently named “Best Place To View A Southwest Florida Sunset.” Plus, the resort is just blocks from Naples’ renowned shopping districts of 5th Avenue and 3rd Street South.
Guests bringing children to the wedding will appreciate the resort’s professionally-supervised child activity program Beach Kids Club for those ages 5-12. While the adult guests are relaxing on the beach or at the poolside bar, or enjoying a round of golf or a tennis match, the children will have a great time participating in such activities as “Pirate Day” with a treasure hunt on the beach, “Mega Sports,” and children’s yoga. Even more appealing is that the activities in the Beach Kids Club program are complimentary to guests.
A popular location for weddings for years, the beachfront resort is a very popular site for destination weddings too, with couples coming from all over the U.S. and abroad to exchange their vows.
To make it easier for couples planning a wedding, the resort offers six wedding packages. Each package includes rehearsal walk-through; ceremony, reception and on-site coordination; a complimentary guest room for the bride and groom; a discount on guest room rates for out-of-town guests; complimentary valet parking; complete room set-up (including all tables, chairs, and floor length linen); chair covers with sash; clear round glass or mirrors with votive candles to enhance table centerpieces; a standard-size dance floor and risers for the band; and a DJ table.
“Our AAA Four-Diamond resort continues to be a very popular wedding site choice for couples in Southwest Florida, and for destination weddings for couples from all over the United States, as well as Europe and Asia,” said Susan Savino, Director of Catering and Conference Services for the resort. “Our complete wedding planning services make it very easy for couples to make all of their arrangements by e-mail, phone, and fax.”
She added, “Whether a couple wishes to have an intimate gathering with a few friends, or an elaborate wedding with hundreds of guests, we coordinate all of the details. Not only do we offer the event location and banquet services, but we provide the planning for all services required, from décor and florist, to entertainment and photographer. Plus, we have the ability to coordinate virtually any type of reception, whether it is a casual outdoor event on one of the resort’s beachfront lawns, or an elaborate more formal event in the beautiful Everglades Room or in our beautiful River of Grass Ballroom.”
“The resort is also perfect for Grooms’ Golf Outings, Spa Days for the bridal party, Bridal Showers and Luncheons, Rehearsal Dinners, Welcome Receptions, and Bon Voyage Brunches,” said Savino.
In addition to the opening of the Everglades Room, the resort’s latest phase of renovations also included the complete renovation of the remaining guest rooms in the resort’s Florida Wing. With the completion of these guest rooms, all of the resort’s 317 guest rooms and suites have been renovated and remodeled over the last four years.
This $5 million phase of improvements followed $40 million spent by the resort over the last six years. That multi-phase project included the renovation and remodeling of the other guest rooms and suites, enhancements to the golf course, the renovation and expansion of The Sunset Beach Bar & Grill, and the addition of the beautiful beachfront pool complex.
Recreational options in the area include tours of the Everglades, Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens, Corkscrew Swamp, The Botanical Gardens, or the Conservancy Nature Center. In addition, boat and fishing trips can be arranged at the hotel. Other leisure time activities can include Naples’ outstanding museums, theatres, and art galleries.
