Songy Highroads and Wampold Cos. have chosen Benchmark to operate the upcoming Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe-Houston. Scheduled to open in the summer of 2020, the 335-suite resort will mark the Margaritaville brand’s first resort in Texas.

The property will include 72,000 square feet of meeting space, numerous signature Margaritaville dining concepts and an array of recreational activities—including an 18-hole golf course and three-acre waterpark. It will be located an hour from Houston and about three hours from Austin, Dallas and San Antonio.

The resort is a joint venture of Songy Highroads and Wampold. It will be a part of Benchmark’s signature brand, Benchmark Resorts & Hotels.
