The storied Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club will get a new look — and new owners.
On Monday the Watkins family, third-generation owners and operators of the landmark property, announced a strategic relationship with The Athens Group, based in Phoenix, to redevelop it and “enhance its legacy.”
In a news release, the family said the 125-acre property will continue to support a hotel and golf club with a beach bar, putting to rest rumors of more drastic plans to reshape it.
Another award for Naples!

NAPLES, Fla. – Oct. 9, 2017 – For most of September, Florida hoteliers and businesses catering to tourists battled Hurricane Irma and the havoc it wrought.
Now that October is here, they’re battling the perceptions it left behind.
“The early national media certainly painted a picture we were going to get hit very hard. People listen to that,” said Jack Wert, executive director of the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention & Visitors Bureau.
From one end of Florida to the other, tourism professionals are using traditional and social media to get the word out: “We’re open for business.”
As bad as Irma was – displacing tens of thousands of residents, knocking out power to millions and being blamed for 72 deaths in the state – physical damage to the tourism infrastructure was not as bad as it might have been.
Even the hardest-hit of the destinations, the Florida Keys, officially reopened for tourism on Oct. 1. Read Full Article… Find Your Dream Home in SW Florida…
Since Sunday I have toured many areas, driving around Naples, Bonita Springs and Estero looking at damages after the passage of Hurricane Irma. Driving on US 41 from Estero to Naples, damages are barely noticeable: A few signs are gone, some posts are twisted, old and large trees are on the ground but palm trees have largely resisted the fury of the storm.
On Gulfshore Blvd in Naples, The Moorings and Park Shore neighborhoods have landscape’s damages, the buildings do not have structural or large damages. Minor damages can be seen on the roofs of very few buildings.
Buildings in Pelican Bay have perfectly resisted damages, due to the lush landscape of the area, numerous beautiful large trees are down but it will not be noticeable after cleanup as many trees remain intact. Vanderbilt Beach‘s beach front or bay front buildings have also well borne the storm with no evident damages.
In Bonita Bay, many old and large trees are down too; once they will be removed, it will be difficult to notice it.
Most affected areas seem to be in East Naples and Marco Island or very specific areas by flooding or where there’s been tornado activity.
Cleanup has started actively everywhere, 80% of FPL customers in Collier County had power restored, and 92% of Lee County Electrical Cooperative had lights back on.
FPL vows to have all power back this Friday, September 22nd.
There is no reason to doubt: Naples, Bonita Springs and Estero will recover promptly without any scars! View Properties For Sale in Naples to Estero…
