Now that its $8 million transformation of the property is open, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples is showcasing the dramatic changes to the poolscape created by Martin Aquatic Design & Engineering. Collectively called “The Sanctuary,” the new aquatic amenities include a 630-foot-long lazy river, a triple-slide tower, adult pool, and children’s wet play structure and wading pool.

“As the first Ritz-Carlton property to boast a lazy river AND a waterslide tower with a raft ride, the Naples resort is bringing the excitement of fun water attractions to an entirely new audience,” said Josh Martin, President & Creative Director of Martin Aquatic.

The Sanctuary utilizes cool blue hues and a stark white in its waterslide design, keeping to a minimalist aesthetic that mirrors the luxury of the Ritz-Carlton brand. With lush landscaping and ample space for loungers and private cabanas, the new poolscape still offers a secluded and exclusive aquatic experience that guests have come to expect at the property. Now, multi-generational families and groups can enjoy a distinct area for every age.
