Concierge.com's insider take:
This hotel makes it onto all the world's best-hotel lists for a few reasons: It's divine, with imported marble floors, antiques, Waterford crystal chandeliers, Oriental rugs, 19th-century European oil paintings, Frette linens, and polished service to match. Located 15 miles north of downtown Naples, the 14-story tower has 450 guest rooms with Gulf views, including 25 suites with balconies. The beachside hotel staff hands out chairs, towels, and ice water; you can rent cabanas, Hobie Cats, kayaks, paddleboats, and catamarans. There are also surfside pursuits, tennis, sports clinics, and eco-walks with the Ritz's own Ranger Randy. Golfers have to head three miles inland to Naples's second Ritz, the newer, less fussy Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, where there's a 36-hole Greg Norman–designed course (2600 Tiburón Dr.; 239-593-2000). But when it comes to spa-going, the tables are turned and it's the golf resort's guests who come here for an impressive regimen of treatments in the 50,000-square-foot spa. (The spa is open only to guests of the two Ritz-Carltons in Naples). Guests can travel between the two resorts by shuttle.
