Naples, Florida (February 25, 2016) — Minto Communities celebrated the opening of The Isles Club at The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples in January with an official Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by a reception for Chamber and community leaders. Participants included GNCC ambassadors, Collier County Commissioner Donna Fiala and Minto officials.
The addition of The Isles Club adds another outstanding amenity to this award-winning, eco-friendly community. Minto has received many national, regional and Southwest Florida industry awards for The Isles of Collier Preserve, including for community design, home design and green building practices. The community received the 2015 Best in American Living Award (BALA) for Best Mixed Community presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
The design of The Isles Club was inspired by the charming coastal cottage style of the original Naples Beach Hotel built in 1888 as a 16-room inn that charged guests $3 per night. In the 1920s, the Naples Beach Hotel grew to become the hub of Naples social life and a popular resort destination. Like the original Naples Beach Hotel, The Isles Club is distinguished by a stylized cupola and large awning-shaded front porch where residents can enjoy tropical breezes.
Club amenities include a resort-style swimming pool and lap pool with private, poolside cabanas; fitness center; multi-purpose room; tennis courts; yoga lawn; lushly landscaped event courtyard; and kayak and paddleboard launch.
Minto developed The Isles of Collier Preserve using its own funding sources, electing not to utilize Community Development District (CDD) funds, and saving homeowners at The Isles of Collier Preserve thousands of dollars in annual assessments. The Isles of Collier Preserve is located just four miles east of downtown Naples on U.S. 41/Tamiami Trail East. Discovery Sales Center hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
