The Resort Shop and Boat Show

Hi! I was visiting Amber in The Resort Shop because I needed a hostess gift for a party I am invited to. She showed me the cutest display of Michel Design Works giftware.

All of the soaps are made with Shea butter and are fantastic moisturizers ...

Spa Chic at Lago Mar

Hi! I spent some time in the spa last week and learned that Spa Chic is going great!

What is particularly great about Spa Chic at Lago Mar is that it really is one of ...

Post Labor Day at Lago Mar

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I can’t believe that summer is over and Labor Day has passed! Where is the time going? I actually spent the Labor Day Weekend away from the resort because Demi was playing in a high level tournament in Boca Raton all weekend. She did really well but we did miss all of the excitement that comes with a holiday weekend at Lago Mar.

It was on that spectacular trip ...

A delicious unending Wine Dinner

The first course was absolutely delicious, orange saffron sous vide scallop, fennel orange salad, micro arugula. Arugula is my absolute favorite food in the world! The second course was ...


Tennis News and Court Updates

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I am so excited to share some pictures of our newly resurfaced tennis courts on the beach. Demi, my oldest and one of the two tennis stars in the family, has unofficially been given the title of "Director of Tennis Renovations at Lago Mar" by my Dad. She takes this job very seriously and if any changes have been made to the courts without her approval she is very upset! On the subject of ...
