The Reservoir at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples
Located in Southwest Florida, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples completed a major transformation to its pool deck with the addition of a 630-foot-long lazy river, slide tower, adult pool, and children’s wet activity tower. The river snakes its way around a new slide tower that offers guests three exciting waterslides that all launch from a height of 30 feet. Two body slides—one open and one closed flume—loop all the way down to runouts, while a one-person innertube slide empties riders into a splash pool before floating into the adjoining river. The 1,600-square-foot adult pool is surrounded by luxurious cabanas and ample space for lounge chairs. The adjacent children’s play pool includes a zero-depth entry before wading deeper to less than a foot of standing water. The central play structure features spraying elements, water cannons, rain showers, and three toddler slides. The children’s pool is equipped with a UV sanitizing system for safety, and all the bodies of water are heated with natural gas.
For this project’s resort pool area, Martin Aquatic provided concept design services, and hydraulic, structural, filtration, and chemical system design and engineering services.
