Naples, Fla. (October 12, 2021) – Vineyards Country Club has appointed Elaine Perhach as the new director of its Wellness Center and Spa.
Perhach, who relocated from Washington, DC, has nearly 15 years of experience in luxury lifestyle health club and day spa operations and leadership. She has more than 10 years of experience in the health and wellness field. Prior to joining Vineyards Country Club, Perhach served as general manager and director of VIDA Fitness and Aura Spa at Renaissance Hotel, where she was responsible for leading and ensuring the financial viability of multiple spa facilities.
“Elaine possesses a host of strengths including leadership development, strategic planning, and fiscal and operational excellence,” said Paul Malonson, Vineyards Country Club Chief Operating Officer. “She strives to provide five-star member experiences and is a welcome addition to our team.”
Vineyards Country Club’s 15,000 square foot Wellness Center and Spa was completed in 2019 by contractor Premiere Builders. Recipient of the Collier Building Industry Association’s 2019 Sand Dollar Award for Interior Design of the Year and the South Florida Hospitality Industry Network’s (NEWH) 2019 Golden Palm Award for excellence, the facility provides a comfortable and personalized workout experience, with wellness programming, cardiovascular and strength training equipment by Life Fitness, personal training, small group training and fitness classes. Café V, a Blue Zones-certified café, offers healthy menus to accommodate all palates. The Wellness Center also offers a physical therapy department with customized services provided by Naples Rehabilitative Services. Complimentary to the fitness and wellness programming, the resort-style spa offers services such as massage therapy treatments, body treatments and facials by Hydropeptide; a private manicure and pedicure boutique; full-service salon; men’s barbershop services; halotherapy salt room; men’s and ladies locker rooms with dry sauna and salt whirlpools; and a heated, outdoor saltwater half-Olympic size lap pool.
In May, Vineyards Country Club officials announced the addition of a 1,200 square foot outdoor circuit training facility to be located adjacent to the Wellness Center and Spa. The new training area will offer numerous additional fitness and training options in a safe, hygienic setting suitable for member athletes of all ages. Initial site preparation, including ground and landscaping work, for the project is underway, with completion anticipated later this year. According to club officials, the project will make Vineyards one of the only country clubs in Naples to feature an outdoor fitness training facility.
