Cherishing Traditions and Celebrations at This Beachfront Beacon Takes on Deeper Meaning This Holiday Season

NAPLES, FL (Oct. 1 2017) – It is home for the holidays at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. The Grande Dame of quintessential Florida charm is decking its Gulf of Mexico-inspired halls for generations of guests. It truly is ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ as the hotel gets infused with holiday tidings. The Ritz-Carlton, Naples will provide guests with a wide array of custom offerings for every type of traveler looking to experience the festive season in true spirit. From a lavish gingerbread house to grand ballroom buffets, consider Thanksgiving and Christmas wrapped with a bow.

“The resort’s mix of sophistication and elegance are perfectly paired with modern experiences and first-class services,” said Jon McGaunn, hotel manager for The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. “The resort is the ideal environment to enjoy the tastes and traditions of this truly special time of the year.”

In November, the table is set for diverse Thanksgiving feasts. The Grand Ballroom hosts an elaborate buffet, complete with 17 stations brimming with hearty favorites and lighter fare, as well as a festive live music. Meanwhile, The Grill provides exceptional menu offerings that discerning patrons have come to expect with a four-course, pre-fixe menu inspired by the season’s finest flavors.

On November 25, it is the sweetest reveal of the year as the award-winning pastry team erects a 12-foot Gingerbread House designed to resemble a classic Swiss Chalet. Meanwhile, throughout December, the Teddy Bear Tea in the Lobby Lounge features oversized teddy bears with storytelling, sweat treats and a special visit from Saint Nick and Mrs. Claus. And for the DIY set, it is all about ornament-making, creating high-designed keepsakes with a Dale Chihuly-trained glass artist.

Lest we forget the holiday feasts - after lounging along the shores of The Gulf of Mexico at the beach or poolside, get ready for the Christmas dinners and next-level New Years’ Eve celebrations with bountiful displays and formal dinners. In The Grill, party like its 2018 with a spectacular dining experience, live music and a wine list with over 1,000 selections from around the world.
