A Sense of Arrival

Hi! As I was walking through our lobby this morning I stopped to pretend that I was a first-time guest at Lago Mar. I wanted to fully experience our “Sense of Arrival”. Wow! I immediately felt the "casual elegance" that we try to exude throughout the entire resort. The pineapple in the middle of our spectacular chandelier, which hangs from our ceiling that is at least 20 feet high, made me feel welcome, as this crowned fruit symbolizes friendship and ...

Lago Mar Thanksgiving Holiday Recap

Hi! I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful Thanksgiving week was here at the resort! The weather was beautiful and our “Family Events” were extremely successful. The yoga class was amazing! Those that attended were very grateful and there is definitely interest in having “Yoga on the Beach” on a regular basis.  The “Movie under the Stars” was a big hit with our hotel guests and members. It was great to see so many kids with their faces painted ...

Lago Mar at the Magazine Stands

Hi! I can’t believe that Fall is here and all of the holidays are approaching. The temperature for this coming weekend is supposed to stay in the 70’s! That is so perfect! I am sure many members will use the club this weekend to enjoy the weather and our new travertine pavers that we installed last month around the Lagoon and Promenade Walkway. I can’t even tell you how many compliments we have received. The property is really looking great. In ...

After the Storm: Hurricane Matthew

Hi! I am so grateful to report that we were spared by Hurricane Matthew. Our prayers go out to our fellow Floridians up in the northern part of the state. We did have to fully prepare for the storm by moving several beach chairs, tables, umbrellas, equipment, televisions and many other items. Our staff has been wonderful! Almost everyone took part in the preparation for the storm and then, at 6:00 am Friday, our employees began coming back to work ...

Red Cross Honors

Hi! I am so excited to blog about my most recent experiences with the Red Cross! On September 21, I was honored to receive the Red Cross’s Humanitarian of the Year award for Broward County at a beautiful event. "Dine and Dock", which was held at Pier 66, started with a champagne toast aboard a gorgeous yacht and then the rest of the evening unfolded in the Panorama Ballroom beginning with cocktails, delicious food stations and even a sake bar. ...

Fall Updates at Lago Mar

Hi! I just wanted to dedicate this blog to thanking all of our guests and members for their cooperation with our most recent renovation. The day after Labor Day we began the big project of removing all of the pavers around the swimming lagoon and replacing them with gorgeous Travertine pavers. The result is absolutely beautiful but, of course, the process has been challenging. Since we are open 365 days a year and 24 hours a day there is never a ...

Beautiful New Beds

Hi! I am so excited to blog about our beautiful new bedding that we are in the process of installing in all of our accommodations! Soon, all of our mattresses will be Simmons Beauty Rest Felicity Recharge Pillow Top Mattresses. I tried one out and they are so, so comfortable! As far as the actual bedding, we have purchased an all new white Bedding Package for each room/suite, which is a soft microfiber polyester coverlet/blanket quilted in a unique 1” ...

Fourth of July at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth! We sure did here at Lago Mar! The weather was great all day long with super sunny skies and a crystal clear ocean - perfect for swimming! During the day we had our steel drummer on the lagoon island and then Craig Fitch, our guitarist, played during the evening hours until the fireworks began. Chef Phil and his staff did a wonderful job with the buffet servicing Acquario and The Sea Grape Terrace. My ...

I Said Yes

Hi! I hope everyone is having a nice summer! I have some exciting news for everyone… On June 16th I turned 50 and got engaged to Chris! He gave me the most beautiful heart shaped diamond ring with a rose gold band. His proposal was very romantic; we were on a private beach in Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas and he got down on one knee to ask me to marry him with the kids there! We are all so ...

New Summer, New Food, New Beach Club Director

Hi! Summer has officially started for me and the kids, as school ended last Wednesday! We have already spent so much time at the resort, having tennis friends over for match play/dinner and playdates down at the beach. I am so excited that our new lunch menu will be out soon! We just finished proofing it and it’s off at the printer’s. A few months back, we had a tasting of the new items and I immediately fell in love with ...
