The Ritz-Carlton, Naples added a $4.5 million Beach House to the resort in August. The two-story, 3,000 sf Naples Beach House was designed for all events from elaborate dinners and festive receptions to ornate weddings and high-energy parties. The beach house can host 120 people for a sit-down dinner, or 150 for cocktail receptions on either floor.
The first floor Shore Level is best for ceremonies, upscale meetings, and cocktails, while the second floor Sunset Level is perfect for sit-down or buffet style dinners. The second floor also allows for live entertainment and dancing. The state-of-the-art technology at the beach house includes Full Fidelity Sound System, audio, video, computer, and DMX lighting control systems, hi-speed and wireless Internet access and direct in dial phone system, Cat5/fiber optic networking to all resort meeting space, and LodgeNet cable television. Earlier this year the resort completed a $22 million renovation of all 450 rooms and suites.
