From the Houston Chronicle: “Margaritaville preps for opening on Lake Conroe“
The first Margaritaville Resort in Texas is set to open June 26 in Montgomery. The highly anticipated 186-acre resort features a splash of dining concepts and recreational activities, including a water park, an 18-hole golf course, a ‘5 O’Clock Somewhere’ swim-up pool bar and boat rentals. In addition to a 72,000 square foot conference and event space, there are 303 suites in the 20-story luxury tower and another 32 lake cottages on the property.
The tiki huts and hammocks are set up and the white sand is waiting for guests as the first Margaritaville Resort in Texas opens this week on Lake Conroe.
The former La Torretta Lake Resort and Spa will officially drift away in Montgomery County’s history as Jimmy Buffett’s new 186-acre island escape officially and fully opens Friday.
The highly anticipated, renovated retreat that greets its guests with a 20-story tower, a flip flop statue, and large yellow LandShark chair is set to offer a variety of ways for folks to not only rest and relax but also to dine and play.
“We are excited to open up on Friday … Margaritaville Lake Resort Lake Conroe — the first Margaritaville Resort in the state of Texas,” Faust said. “We have something for everyone here, young and old, with an 18-hole golf course, three acre water park, full service spa and salon, expansive fitness center, boat slips, miniature golf, five Margaritaville inspired restaurants and bars, 335 guest suites and lake cottages.”
