With the completion of the Bonita Bay Club’s new 60,000 square foot Lifestyle Center that includes a nearly 20,000 square foot world-class Fitness Center and Fitness Café, a 9,000 square foot spa, and a salon, residents of the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower to be built by The Ronto Group within Bonita Bay will enjoy an amenity rich lifestyle that is redefining the country club living experience. The three-story Lifestyle Center is in the Promenade complex adjacent to the Bonita Bay community and overlooks the first hole of the Creekside golf course, one of Bonita Bay’s three on-property golf courses. The Lifestyle Center contributed to Bonita Bay being recognized as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. The prestigious America’s Healthiest Clubs award is conveyed only to private clubs focused on the cultivation of a healthy environment and lifestyle for its members and staff. The Club’s Lifestyle Center vision was acknowledged by the National Club Association and featured in its Club Trends magazine. The Bonita Bay Club has also announced plans for enhancements to its 18-court tennis facility and the construction of a resort-style pool complex adjacent to the Lifestyle Center.
The first-floor lobby of the Lifestyle Center features a soaring two-story atrium. Visitors are greeted by a Concierge. The luxurious spa and full service salon, and a spacious multi-purpose room are located on the first floor. The Lifestyle Center’s spa is overseen by Kellie Campoamor, the former Spa Director at the Marco Island Marriott Resort. The spa and salon have been designed to provide an unparalleled experience. The interior design was inspired by the color and luster of pearls. Seven treatment rooms, including a couple’s treatment room, men’s and ladies’ locker rooms and wet areas with dedicated steam, sauna, and whirlpool rooms, relaxation rooms, a coed hair styling area, and a dedicated barber shop are all featured. Traditional men’s and ladies’ locker facilities and showers are also included.
Accessed by either an elevator or a floating staircase with glass side rails, the second floor is completely dedicated to the Fitness Center and Fitness Café. To say the Lifestyle Center’s fitness facilities are world-class is an understatement. Simply put, the Fitness Center overseen by Fitness Director Tammy Mugavero is the premier Technogym facility in the United States. The Italian made, Technogym equipment includes cardiovascular, strength, functional fitness, and kinesis machines. In addition to its use of the latest fitness technology, the Center’s focus on functional fitness is designed to strengthen and enhance well rounded conditioning. The Technogym functional fitness equipment works on a 360-degree range of motion platform rather than a dedicated linear range of motion. In addition to the open spaces for the cardiovascular, strength, functional fitness, and kinesis machines, the Fitness Center also includes dedicated rooms for group fitness, spin, Pilates, and Gyrotonics, as well as a dedicated golf training studio. Men’s and ladies’ locker rooms include full shower facilities.
The Lifestyle Center’s Fitness Café serves healthy fast food, freshly made juices, and smoothies that can be enjoyed on-site or prepared to go. Menu selections are expected to include salads, rice bowls, pressed sandwiches and wraps, and a variety of protein selections such as salmon, steamed chicken, grilled lean beef, and protein alternatives for vegetarians. An assortment of freshly made toppings are available.
In addition to the Lifestyle Center, nature and fitness enthusiasts will enjoy Bonita Bay’s twelve mile network of on-property biking and hiking paths that weave through the community’s lush tropical setting. A kayaking and canoeing lodge offers additional recreational possibilities. For those who prefer the beach, bus transportation is provided to a private beach park for Bonita Bay residents only complete with picnic pavilions, grills, beach chairs, and umbrellas just minutes away on Little Hickory Island. Bonita Bay also features an onsite marina offering a relaxing dining and lounge experience. The full-service Bonita Bay Marina is located on the Imperial River at the south end of Estero Bay and provides direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Wet slips and dry boat storage are available, as well as on-site fueling and light mechanical services. Backwater Jack’s, a waterfront restaurant and bar, serves lunch, as well a bar menu, dinner, and libations daily in season.
The Bonita Bay golf experience is legendary. Three Arthur Hills designed courses wind their way through the 2,400 acre Bonita Bay community and gracefully complement the surrounding pristine natural setting that must be seen to be fully appreciated. Two additional courses designed by esteemed golf course architect Tom Fazio are located at the nearby Bonita Bay Club Naples. Both of the Fazio courses offer a pure golf experience and are set against a stunning natural tableau with no residential development.
In addition to the amenities available through Bonita Bay and the Bonita Bay Club, the Seaglass tower’s second floor will connect to an award-winning amenity complex previously designed by architect Santiesteban & Associates. An array of amenities already in place includes a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fully-equipped fitness facility that features men’s and women’s spas with steam and massage rooms, a resort-style walk-in pool and spa, and a deck with screened cabana that includes a bar and grill.
