Fort Lauderdale native Diana Nyad

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! One of our guests just shared something with me that I wanted to pass along to you all! Do you remember hearing about Fort Lauderdale native Diana Nyad, who at 64 swam from Cuba to Florida? It was Nyad’s third attempt and first success at this particular challenge. The current issue of The New Yorker has a profile on her and it has some enlightening information about her connection to Fort Lauderdale. As it ...

Lago Mar Events: Valentine’s Day

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I am so excited to share with you how amazing last Friday’s Valentine's Party for Kids was at Lago Mar Resort! The room looked festive and beautiful. The invitation had asked everyone to wear red or pink, and most guests did. Of course, Chef Phil's food was over the top! He even prepared heart-shaped pasta, which was a big hit. After dinner the kids made valentine cards for their parents that were really neat and they loved being able ...

Lilly Pulitzer Cover-Ups at Resort Shop

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Demi and I are modeling our beautiful matching Lilly Pulitzer cover-ups from The Resort Shop at Lago Mar Resort.  We were spending a couple of days at Ocean Reef in Key Largo, where we are members. Next to Lago Mar, this is our favorite place on the planet! Lago Mar is similar to Ocean Reef in that both are exclusive private clubs as well as resorts, which, in my opinion, provides a sophisticated comfortable atmosphere for guests and members. Demi ...

Wine Cellar Lounge: Super Bowl 48

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I just have to say that I had the best time here at Lago Mar last Sunday for Super Bowl 48. The Promenade Bar was packed and so was the Wine Cellar Lounge! Chef Phil did an awesome job with his special appetizers. The sliders and flatbread pizza were phenomenal and I had no idea, until that afternoon, that he had added lamb chops to the menu. They were to die for. I believe I had 10 adults ...

Yoga Joint South & a day with the kids

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Yesterday I had the best day with the kids! We started our day at Yoga Joint South, which is about 2 minutes from Lago Mar, just over the 17th Street Causeway Bridge. I did the Hot Yoga class with my oldest daughter, Demi, while my other three kids participated in the Kids' Yoga Class at the same time. How great is that? Everyone had a great workout and a lot of fun! After yoga, ...

At the 38th annual Florida Huddle

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I am so excited to report that I am participating in the 38th annual Florida Huddle (my 24th time!) at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. For those of you that don't know, Florida Huddle is “Florida’s foremost travel trade event.” Each year, the event moves to a different venue, alternating from city to city. The suppliers, which are mostly hotels and attractions, are all from Florida and the buyers, who are tour operators, are from all over the world. In order to ...

Pastrami with Fran at the Soda Shop

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Today I decided to "cheat" on Chef Phil by not eating in Acquario and instead go into the Soda Shop with Fran, who has been part of our Lago Mar family for 14 years. When I sat down at the beautiful countertop, which is granite and looks like the color of the ocean, Fran greeted me and told me I HAD to order the Pacific Pastrami Sandwich. Not only did she make me order the sandwich, she ...

Dinner at Lago Mar Resort

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! After the busy holiday week I just didn’t feel like cooking. Instead, I took the kids over to the resort and we had an awesome dinner at Lago Mar! I’m so glad I didn’t feel like cooking because our meal was perfect. We ate on the Sea Grape Terrace and enjoyed the warm, and beautiful, heater that was placed near our table. I had the Fish du Jour, which was pan flashed halibut with lobster sauce and ...

Thanksgiving Activities & the Yoga Joint

On Thanksgiving itself, I started my day by taking all four of my kids to the Yoga Joint ...

Some Teenage Friends Arrive for the Holiday

Hi! So excited to visit with our teenage guests and see what is going on in their lives. These young people have been coming to Lago Mar since they were born! I have literally watched them grow up and my kids get so excited when they know that their "teenage Lago Mar friends" have checked in.
