NGALA Private Reserve
A discussion of off-site venues with serious wow factor just wouldn't be complete without the NGALA private reserve. NGALA, which is Swahili for "Place of the Lion," offers the ultimate retreat for groups as intimate as twenty and as grand as one thousand. This 42-acre private reserve located in Naples offers private groups the exclusive opportunity to step out of the hotel ballroom and back in time to a period reminiscent of the British Colonial era deep in the heart of a mysterious jungle.
Three elegant canvas-peaked tents, designed with superb attention to detail, reach majestically toward the sky. The glow from fire pits, candles, lanterns and torches provide a subtle yet adequate ambiance. Carefully selected artifacts including authentic handmade teak and bamboo furniture, antique steamer trunks, cut-crystal chandeliers, and old-world curio cabinets are combined with modern bathroom facilities, state-of the-art evaporative cooling, and professionally managed insect control to create the perfect balance of luxury, drama, and sophistication. Waterfalls, ponds, stone bridges and lush tropical foliage placed around the dramatic tented architecture provide a natural setting as vivid greens and spectacular blooms highlight and enhance NGALA.
Guests can relax under the stars while enjoying hors d'oeuvres and spectacular cuisine, and view magnificent un-caged creatures such as giraffes and leopards closer than ever dreamed possible. Handlers dressed in khaki adventure-like attire interact with the animals and personally answer guests' questions. Musicians and tribal dancers perform to provide the perfect balance between the peaceful harmony of nature and the excitement of the unexpected.
Wow factor, indeed. To see pictures of this amazing venue and to learn more, visit www.NGALA.net.Back to top of page
