Content sponsored by Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club

Why head out of town for vacation when you already live in paradise?

Luxury is only a few steps away for Fort Lauderdale residents, with Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club located directly on Fort Lauderdale Beach. It has all the ingredients you need to make the perfect staycation.

The Suite Life

Lago Mar offers plenty of options for your room with a view, ranging from standard rooms to the penthouse suite. Amenities, depending on the room you choose, include living rooms, wet bars with refrigerators and microwaves, flat-screen TVs, workspaces with desks, private balconies and more. 

Want the best upgrade in the house? The Penthouse at Lago Mar is the way to go. The airy and inviting oceanfront suite offers ample space; a king bed in the master bedroom; a queen bed in the second bedroom; a living room complete with a double sofa bed; a kitchenette with a breakfast countertop; a spacious dining area; two full bathrooms; and a private balcony with panoramic ocean views. 

Soak In The Sun

It’s not a staycation if you don’t spend time at what makes Fort Lauderdale paradise: the beach. Lago Mar makes it even better with over 500 feet of private beach, only open to resort guests and Lago Mar club members. Take advantage of private cabanas, chaise lounges, steamer chairs and beach umbrellas, all with attendants available to help you with anything you need. 

Want to soak up the sun without all the sand? Head over to the resort’s two pools, called the Ocean Pool and the Lagoon Pool, for a blissful day.

Diving In

After you get settled into your room, check out everything there is to do at Lago Mar. You won’t get bored at the resort—there’s something for everyone, no matter your interests, whether it’s relaxing by the pool or getting active on the tennis courts.

If you love sports, try out the resort’s putting course, shuffleboard game, tennis courts and beach volleyball nets. There’s also a life-sized chessboard if you want to workout your mind.

Need time out of the sun? Escape to The Resort Shop, a boutique at Lago Mar, which offers resort wear, jewelry, accessories, home accents and more from labels like Lilly Pulitzer, Mariposa, Nic & Zoe and Tommy Bahama. 

Release The Tension

Breathe in the calm, and breathe out everything that’s been holding you back. The Spa at Lago Mar uses Pevonia products, which are natural skincare solutions, and offers treatments such as massages, body wraps, facials, waxing and manicures and pedicures, with multiple bundled packages to choose from. 

Keep yourself relaxed after you enjoy the spa by taking a stroll along the Lago Mar grounds. The 9,000-square-foot lagoon-style resort is filled with beautiful palms and tropical plants that make for a calming oasis. 

Savor Paradise

Don’t feel guilty about indulging a little during your staycation (Lago Mar has a fitness center, after all) and enjoy all of the dining options the resort has to offer.

There’s Acquario, a high-end dinner spot; Palm Garden Dining Room and Seagrape Terrace for breakfast and a la carte lunches; Wine Cellar Lounge that embraces you in a warm, cozy cocktail lounge; The Soda Shop, where you can find your favorite ice cream confections; The Promenade Bar for all your poolside cravings; Ocean Grill, which has outdoor food favorites like hot dogs and hamburgers; and, of course, there’s always room service for those that want breakfast in bed.
