South Beach gestalt has come to conservative Naples with the multimillion-dollar renovation of the former Registry Resort & Club. L.A. interior designer Robert Barry, who did the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles, gave the 474-room oceanfront resort a clean-lined lobby and lounge, with unfussy plantation-style guest rooms. The most noteworthy upgrade: the addition of 50 bungalow suites. Showcasing custom-designed furniture by Vaughan Benz and the Fong Brothers Company, the suites are a study in organic minimalism—headboards of whitewashed oak, a chunk of coral in a blue glass bowl atop a Vaughan Benz dining table, a sofa bed with ivory cushions. All told, the suites reflect the quiet (and casual) side of modernism, a rarity in these parts.
