The clubhouse at Kalea Bay features three pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a children’s pool.
For more than a year now the residents of Kalea Bay have been able to enjoy their community’s phenomenal clubhouse and all the amenities that surround it.
“It truly is the social and recreational centerpiece of the community,” said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay, the gated, luxury residential high-rise community being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. “Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it’s the envy of every community in the Naples area.”
Kalea Bay’s 88,000-square-foot main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the community’s entrance.
The 25,000-square-foot clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a children’s pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a fitness center, the café Bistro, a lakeside fire pit, kid’s game room and event lawn.
All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy.
If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isn’t on a resident’s schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is.
“We have the perfect place for all three,” said Lodge. “The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be.”
In fact, the clubhouse at Kalea Bay has two restaurants, the Driftwood Café and the Salt and Oak Restaurant. The Driftwood Café is open for breakfast and lunch. The Salt and Oak Restaurant is designed for an elegant dining experience and includes such features as a private dining room, a banquet room and wine tasting room – among others.
The state-of-the-art fitness center features Pelton bicycles, as well as assorted strength machines, free weights and a stretch area.
For those residents who have young children or grandchildren, the clubhouse also has a teen lounge, with virtual reality and PS4 games, Foosball, WiFi, and multiple TVs, and a kid’s game room with child-size furniture, books, chalkboard and TVs.
Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts. Guest suites for overnight guests are also located nearby. Residents also have a shuttle service from the clubhouse to local beaches.
Just a short distance from Kalea Bay’s incredible main amenity area, the community’s second tower continues to reach skyward. Recently construction crews began work on the 17th floor of the 22-story tower.
Like its predecessor, Tower 200 is 22 stories in height and will also have 120 residences. Specifically, it’s 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. It will also have similar rooftop amenities as Tower 100, including a rooftop pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge.

The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butler’s pantry and oversized island, all standard features.
“Our floor plans have an open design we call ‘lifestyle designs’ that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today,” said Lodge.
The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower.
“Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets,” Lodge said.
Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails.
“We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence,” said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features.
