Spa Gifts and Holiday Plan at Lago Mar

Hi! I can’t believe there is less than two weeks left until Christmas! The resort looks and smells absolutely gorgeous with all of the holiday decorations and I am getting my “Family Events” ready to start the day after Christmas. Of course, Chef Phil and his staff are preparing for an amazing Christmas Dinner and New Year’s Eve. Ever since I read his New Year’s Menu, I haven’t been able to stop craving Chateaubriand! Our guests have also enjoyed Christmas on Las ...

4th Generation Kitchen Takeover

Hi! I just wanted to share a great experience the girls had with Chef Phil last week. He invited them to spend a couple of hours in the kitchen learning about food preparation while meeting the staff and reviewing daily procedures. They especially loved our staff member nicknamed “Winnie the Pooh”. He is responsible for the delicious fresh bread we serve at night and also the vegetables that accompany each entree. The highlight was that they actually had the opportunity ...

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 ...

California Dreaming and Return to Paradise

Hi! I am so sorry I haven’t been in touch this past week but I was in California on a family vacation and we had an amazing time! We spent a few days in San Francisco exploring the city, taking a tour of Alcatraz and Muir Woods, and walking through China Town. Demi is almost fluent in Mandarin so she found this especially fascinating. We also took a drive out to Napa Valley and had the honor to be hosted by ...

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 ...
