Margaritaville Holdings, Songy Highroads and the Wampold Cos. plan to open the first Margaritaville in Texas in Q3 2020.

The resort, located north of Houston on Lake Conroe, will replace La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa and involve a major renovation that will refresh the existing property.

When complete, the 360-guestroom Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe will stretch over 186 acres of waterfront property, with accommodations split between a main 20-story tower and a collection of waterfront villas.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


The renovation will include the property's 18-hole golf course, tennis facilities, spa, restaurants, outdoor pools and 45,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space. The conversion also will change out two of La Torretta's current restaurants to Margaritaville’s signature food and beverage offerings: LandShark Bar & Grill and 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill.

Songy Highroads and the Wampold Cos., which have partnered multiple times over the past decade, will  co-manage the resort—their first Margaritaville property together.
