Naples, Fla. – Vi at Bentley Village is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as the winner of the Gulfshore Business Best of Business Award for best retirement community. Now in its fourth year, the honors are awarded based on votes by the readers of Gulfshore Business.
“We are excited to announce that Vi at Bentley Village has been recognized as the premier retirement destination in Southwest Florida,” said Penny Smith, Executive Director at Vi at Bentley Village. “This acknowledgement highlights the supportive and cheerful atmosphere that our dedicated team of staff members creates for our nearly 800 residents.”
Vi at Bentley Village recently completed an $80+ million redevelopment project which includes two new clubhouses and 72 new independent living apartments.
The new East Clubhouse was the last building to be completed as part of the redevelopment, and serves as the community’s entertainment hub. It houses performance and multi-purpose spaces, a library, an art studio, a cocktail lounge, a movie theatre, and two upscale restaurants: Azure for formal dining, and Seaside, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant.
The East Clubhouse also connects directly to 72 new independent living apartments, offering six unique floor plans such as the 1,200-square-foot Aster, and the 1,800-square-foot Bayberry (all square footage is approximate).

The new space includes two outdoor pools: one resort-style pool with poolside cabanas, and a second regulation-sized lap pool. Adjacent to the pool areas there is an indoor/outdoor bar with views of the community lakes.
In addition, the West Clubhouse offers two new dining venues: Café Biscotti, where residents can enjoy specialty coffees, smoothies or a healthy snack on the go, and Lakeside Grille, a casual American bistro-style restaurant with all-day table service.
