The resort developers say the property, remade in the style popularized by famed laid-back singer Jimmy Buffett, will have 360 guestrooms, Margaritaville dining concepts, a golf course, and spa. The resort is now the La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa, which will be extensively renovated, according to a post on the Margaritaville website.

“This resort will be a welcome escape for those in Texas’s major metropolitan areas and beyond, offering a lakeside paradise dedicated to relaxation, fun, adventure and the Margaritaville state of mind,” Rick Cunningham, SVP Margaritaville Development, said.

The Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe will feature rooms in a main 20-story hotel tower, as well as waterfront villas on the lake. Two of the existing restaurants will be converted into signature

Margaritaville dining concepts – LandShark Bar & Grill and 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill. The property’s existing features will also be refreshed, including an 18-hole golf course, tennis facilities, spa, restaurants, outdoor pools, and 45,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space.
