Content sponsored by Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club
When you have a tropical oasis in your own backyard, traveling hundreds of miles for a vacation is unnecessary.
Skip the long flights and airport madness this summer by heading straight to Fort Lauderdale’s own slice of paradise: Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club.
Lago Mar is located on a stretch of beach directly between the Atlantic Ocean and Lake Mayan in the prestigious Harbor Beach neighborhood. The resort’s Old Florida vibes are instant from the moment you step into the lobby, immediately sending you into vacation mode.
With 164 suites and 40 expansive guest rooms, Lago Mar offers an extensive range of accommodations and views to handcraft a Travel Channel-worthy getaway. From 24-hour room service, concierge service and complimentary self- or valet parking to in-room safes, lush comforters and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, Lago Mar offers nothing short of the best offerings for the most stress-free visit you could ask for.
You’ll experience the resort’s luxurious amenities whether you choose a gorgeous standard room or go all out with a beautiful penthouse suite with panoramic ocean views. You can enjoy your vacation being rest-assured that your comfort and satisfaction will always be taken care of.
Spend an afternoon with your toes in the sand on the resort’s 500-foot private beach. Don’t worry about any outsiders; the beach is limited to Lago Mar guests and club members. Bask in Florida’s beautiful summer weather with private cabanas, beach umbrellas, steamer chairs and chaise lounges. Attendants are nearby to help with any and all requests.
Cool off by taking a dip in Lago Mar’s two pools. Lounge around by the Lagoon Pool, a 9,000-square-foot lagoon-style pool studded with tropical palms perfect for tanning or watching cruise ships sail from Port Everglades; or make a splash in the Ocean Pool, aptly named for its stunning oceanside placement.
Get some R&R by detouring to the resort’s all-inclusive, award-winning spa, The Spa at Lago Mar. Whether you need to unwind from a long workweek or are craving a relaxing European facial, the spa offers personal services to help soothe and restore your body, mind and spirit. From reflexology treatments and Swedish massages to manicures and pedicures, you’ll walk out feeling refreshed as ever.
Out and About
If you want to stay active and hit your daily 10k steps, Lago Mar offers a fitness center, beach volleyball, four new tennis courts, a putting course, an oversized outdoor chess board, shuffleboard, as well as a brand new beachside basketball court. Young guests can delight in the children’s playground while staying close to their families.
Shop ‘til you drop at The Resort Shop, a boutique with chic apparel, accessories, resort wear, gifts and more from high-end brands like Brighton, Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer. Take your pick from designer swimwear and cover-ups by designers such as Ralph Lauren, DKNY, Carmen Marc Valvo and more.
Wine and Dine
Fulfill all of your cravings at one of Lago Mar’s seven dining establishments. Indulge in a sumptuous buffet-style breakfast in the Palm Garden Dining Room, or make your way there for a post-beach day meal. Enjoy an elegant dinner with dishes from different cultures around the world in a modern American bistro setting at Acquario. Not in the mood to leave the comfort and privacy of your suite? No worries; room service is available 24/7.
After dinner, make your way to the Wine Cellar to savor a glass of your favorite wine or handcrafted cocktail. Enjoy delicious frozen drinks as soon as you step out of the water at The Promenade Bar, a poolside bar with a full meal menu featuring offerings from chicken wings to fish tacos.
Grab a quick bite right out of the pool at Ocean Grill, where you can enjoy burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and more without changing out of your swimsuit. For a sweet treat, get a scoop or two of your favorite ice cream at The Soda Shop, Lago Mar’s timeless convenience store. Its classic soda fountain counter reminiscent of an era from years gone by is a nostalgic blast from the past.
