The 474-room Naples Grande Beach Resort (formerly the Waldorf Astoria Naples) has unveiled its new look following an $18 million facelift.

In addition to a refreshed style, the resort -- which has 83,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space -- also debuted two new eateries, The Catch of the Pelican, featuring a delicious seafood menu, and the more casual Rhode's End.

The property has a spa with 12 treatment rooms, a fitness center, three pools, a tennis club with 15 courts and the acclaimed Naples Grande Golf Club.  

Other activities include kayaking and paddleboarding along the resort's powdery, white-sand beach, and strolling along a boardwalk that winds its way through a scenic protected mangrove estuary.
