The latest upcoming addition to this prestigious collection is extending a warm invitation to “Tiki On” to the waterfront wonderland that is Fort Myers. Triton 81º is a future four-star resort designed to connect hotel guests to the waterfront. Located on a unique peninsula by the Caloosahatchee River, this four-star resort will be celebrated for its unwavering commitment to service, year-round lifestyle amenities, and 138 premium accommodations. Alongside the Marriott Tribute Resort, Triton 81º will also feature eight condominium buildings that offer the chance to embrace the waterfront resort lifestyle daily. Let’s explore what awaits hotel guests and prospective residents at Triton 81º.

1. Adventurous Waterfront Excursions

With a Dockmaster on hand to arrange any water-based excursion imaginable, residents and guests of Triton 81º will be able to dive into a world of excitement. Sanibel Island, a barrier island just three miles off the coast of Fort Myers, is a paradise for nature lovers. Here, beautiful beaches feature crystal-clear waters, rare seashells, and an abundance of wildlife. Anglers can book a fishing charter into the offshore Gulf of Mexico waters to reel in prized catches such as snook, redfish, tarpon, and the elusive mutton snapper. For a more tranquil experience, guests can have the Dockmaster book a sunset cruise, where the sun will dip below the horizon in a breathtaking display of colors. They will also be able to forget about taking an Uber or Lyft to Downtown Fort Myers. Water taxis make it easy to travel in style to the top-rated restaurants, art galleries, and fashionable boutiques that line the River District.

The Fort Myers waterfront offers more than a source of adventure. Its sights and sounds provide a natural sense of relaxation. The Triton 81º Spa will be designed to enhance the healing power of water in a luxurious sanctuary. With a European design, the spa will emphasize a holistic approach to wellness that incorporates the surrounding natural elements. Skilled therapists will provide treatments crafted to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit, from targeted deep tissue massages to revitalizing facials. Best of all, this waterfront retreat is set to be just a short walk away for Triton 81º homeowners.

3. Stress-Free Event Planning

From food and beverage selections to seating arrangements, the team will meticulously handle every detail, ensuring hosts and guests can relax and savor precious moments against the backdrop of the waterfront. For guests traveling from out of town, the convenience of world-class accommodations right at the venue eliminates the need to find alternative lodging.

5. A New Place to Call Home

Those seeking to embrace the Tribute Resort lifestyle daily will find a rare opportunity at Triton 81º. The Tribute Resort will be surrounded by Triton 81º Residences and Yacht Club, a collection of eight mid-rise condominium buildings on the water’s edge. Each building will house just four two- to three-bedroom residences per floor, with direct waterfront views. A private rooftop deck is planned to top the condominiums, complete with comfortable seating and an outdoor bar for watching Southwest Florida’s famed sunsets.

With access to all the Tribute Resort provides, residents will be able to enjoy the perks of a four-star hotel right from home. They’ll also have a Yacht Club that’s exclusive to Triton 81º owners. A state-of-the-art fitness center will be fully equipped with cutting-edge equipment. In addition, a casual grille will provide a waterfront dining venue and offer provisions for boaters heading out for a day on the water. A private tropical pool area will also benefit from food and beverage service in its rare waterfront location. The Yacht Club will also host a wide array of events and activities and create gathering spaces for family and friends to enjoy this incredible lifestyle. 78 private boat docks will also be available to condominium owners, accommodating vessels up to 70 feet in length.

6. Flexible Marriott Rental Program

Triton 81º Residences will also present a rare option for owners who may not be ready to live in Southwest Florida all year long. The Marriott Rental Program enables owners to generate rental income when they are not utilizing their Triton residence. Managed professionally and leveraging the Marriott reservation system, this program will offer an excellent way to own a residence while offsetting ownership expenses. With annual flexibility, buyers can decide each year whether to participate in the program or enjoy the resort lifestyle year-round.

The Gulf of Mexico waters are ideal for world-class fishing or spending the day on the beaches and sandbars that line the coast. The proximity to US Highway 41 and I-75 provides convenient access to even more attractions in Bonita Springs, Naples, and beyond. Triton 81 is also easily accessible from two major airports: Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and Punta Gorda Airport (PGD).
