Imagine stepping from your private oceanfront Florida resort accommodations to be greeted by cloudless skies, sparkling turquoise waters and white sandy beaches stretching to infinity. As a guest of LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, this image of paradise becomes your daily reality. One of Florida's finest resort hotels, LaPlaya rests between the Gulf of Mexico and picturesque Vanderbilt Bay, offering guests a rare chance to experience South Florida's subtropical beauty from front-row seats.
Very unique and unlike any other restaurants in Naples, Florida, Baleen is pleasing to the palate and eye alike. A Florida fine dining experience at Baleen, Naples features a whimsical monkey motif lending a lighthearted air to its candlelit elegance with mirrored banquettes and monkeys climbing plaster torcheres, set amidst oak-paneled walls, white-linen tablecloths and mahogany furnishings.
Toes-in-the-sand Florida dining takes place as LaPlaya's Baleen spills out through grand doors to a terrace with tables overlooking the sweeping beach and ends with a few more tables for cocktails where diners are happy to go barefoot.
Whether seated in an indoor epicurean enclave or a barefoot beach table, guests enjoy three daily seating's at Baleen with palate-pleasing options including a breakfast menu with a Gulf Coast twist on traditional favorites, such as the crab cake eggs benedict and baked lobster frittata with asparagus, eggs & brie, grilled pineapple and creme fraiche. The lunch menu features gourmet sandwiches and salads such as the chopped BLT salad with crumbly bacon, chopped tomato, shredded lettuce and specialty cream dressing.
With exceptional entrees such as the Seared Asian Spiced Tuna served with tempura scallions & honey wasabi, and Roasted Natural Chicken with goat cheese dumplings, wild mushrooms and tomatoes, the dinner menu is truly novel, and starting up the night, the intimate beach fire pit and Baleen Bar feature a fantastic wine-by-the-glass program, as well as extensive list of martinis and classic cocktails.
If Florida seafood restaurants with beautiful waterfront dining views appeal to you, Baleen, Naples will more than fill the bill. The Baleen menu selections may also be enjoyed from the comfort of your guestroom, served to you by our excellent LaPlaya Room Service staff.
Reflecting the contemporary lifestyle and easygoing attitude of South Florida, LaPlaya Beach Resort is a place where guests can truly feel at home. An updated twist to Florida's classic, "old world" style, the resort's decor is elegant, yet always comfortable. Casual elegance defines all of LaPlaya's 189 accommodations and suites, 141 with their toes practically in the sand! A tasteful blend of wrought-iron furnishings, luxurious fabrics, cheery colors, and unique works of art-not to mention spectacular views of the ocean or bay-create the ideal atmosphere for a beachfront resort vacation.
Nestled among a beautiful pristine beach in a posh resort town known as Naples, Florida, and bordering the wilderness of the South Florida Everglades, this 64-acre golf and spa resort is situated on the sweeping white sands and gently lapping turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and nestled next to picturesque Vanderbilt Bay. Reminiscent of Old Naples, the laid-back unpretentious atmosphere is a contrasting backdrop of southern plantation charm sprinkled with chic Florida boutique resort style.
The beach resort decor is elegant, yet always comfortable, with a "no jacket required" philosophy. French doors span the width of the first floor, opening graciously into the main lobby, showcasing delicate crystal chandeliers ensconced in wrought iron, botanical prints and rattan furnishings made from tropical Asian Climbing Palm.
Maybe your idea of the perfect vacation is simply to enjoy the amenities of this beautiful Florida beach resort by stretching out on the shore with a good book and doing little else. From fine waterfront dining, spa services to water sports, the Laplaya Beach & Golf Resort alone provides enough activity to keep every type of Florida vacation traveler happy.
