Located minutes from the heart of downtown Naples right off of 41, the club offers everything from aquatic adventures such as a resort style pool and lazy river to a full service tennis center facility, state-of-the-art fitness center and an award-winning spa. It is a tropical haven for families and couples looking to immerse themselves in a day of fun and relaxation while disconnecting themselves from the outside world.
Guests looking to take a break from the beach or pool at home can slip into a lush slice of paradise and unwind in one of the club’s six water amenities. Families can enjoy the resort style pool featuring a walk-through waterfall – a favorite among kids – drift down the lazy river or warm up in the family hot tub.
While adults looking to unwind sans kids, can indulge in the infinity edge adult lap pool, regular adult pool or adult hot tub. To keep kids entertained over the weekends and on holidays, The Naples Bay Club also offers fun poolside children’s activities like the popular watermelon eating and hula hoop contests, chalk drawing, and famous critter petting, a close encounter with animals like alligator and snakes.
A children’s playground, located just off the pool area, is also available for kids. Adults can enjoy live music entertainment on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Members can relish in a sun-filled day poolside reading a book or simply take in the beauty of the Club’s tropical gardens, while sipping a specialty cocktail or savoring the flavors of the Gulf Coast from the club’s Blue Water Grill & Bar.
To satisfy their palate, guests can enjoy a full menu of tropical starters, farm fresh salads and signature sandwiches right on their lounge chairs, at the poolside cabanas (available for rent) or the outdoor restaurant and bar.
