Saturated in southern hospitality, La Playa Beach Resort is the place to be if you’re seeking luxury with a smile. Situated on Florida’s west coast in Northern Naples, it is a first class beach resort with top-notch amenities and gorgeous accommodations.
From your first steps on the veranda, the warmth and southern charm exudes, and throughout the resort “welcome” is a word not only said, but one felt the whole time through. The staff is gracious, the décor inviting, and comfortable luxury is found around every corner.
Each of the 198 guest rooms is beautifully decorated in a classic yet modern island motif. All have a bright airy feel about them, and unique features like four post beds and well-selected art add to the aesthetic. If you’re lucky enough to stay in one of their 9 luxury suites, be prepared to be impressed. Those that face the gulf give unprecedented water views from every room, and even from the shower you can look out over the turquoise waters that stretch as far as the eyes can see.
La Playa lives up to its name offering guests instant access to sand and surf. Situated just 33 steps from the beach it is one of Naples only beach resorts to sit so close to the Gulf of Mexico. That being said there is still plenty of room for stretching out on the resort’s beach chairs, searching for shells and natural treasures, or exploring miles and miles of coastline. Incidentally, La Playa sits just south of one of Florida’s state parks and a short walk leads to unspoiled beaches and more natural beauty
The resort also provides guests with a full array of amenities to satisfy every need. There are multiple pools to play in, access to beach and water sports, and great golf for those looking to hit the greens. The beautiful boutique spa is the perfect way to rub out city life, with specialty treatments like the Tropical Essence Massage and the Island Fresh Scrub.
Perhaps the most spectacular time at La Playa is sunset. Guests gather on balconies, the beach, and the resort restaurant’s patio to watch the sun go down, and enjoy cocktails and company as it does. There is even a beachfront fire pit to cuddle up next to and enjoy the show.
Post sunset make sure to hit Baleen, the resorts fine dining restaurant. It offers a fantastic dinner menu, with fresh local fare and inventive cuisine. The service is impeccable, and, like all at La Playa, it's first rate yet friendly and comfortable. Don’t miss the Grouper (caught right from the Gulf), and make sure to indulge in one of their delicious desserts.
La Playa Beach Resort is the perfect place to get away from it all. It’s a place to discover new beauty, indulge your senses, and relax and rejuvenate. The warmth of the sunshine and southern hospitality will have you wanting to return before you’ve even left.
