The brand’s first property in a ski destination, this all-suite resort will provide an exciting new stay for visitors to the south Lake Tahoe basin.
A first for the area
The winter-2023-opening Margaritaville Resort Lake Tahoe, the first all-suite property for this area, will be located at the base of the Heavenly Mountain Resort in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The 399-room property will provide a year-round experience of this scenic destination.
The resort is opening following the multi-million-dollar reimagination of the property currently known as Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel. The resort’s design is being led by creative interior design agency The McBride Company and the property will be managed by Davidson Resorts.
Steve Contos, executive vice president of Davidson Resorts, said: “We are so excited to share this iconic brand with one of the premier year-round adventure and ski destinations in the United States.
“With the property’s opening, we invite travellers to experience the escapism of Margaritaville in a whole new setting, whether they’re seeking an action-packed vacation or a relaxing getaway.”
On opening this winter, the property will host guests in 399 suites with lake or mountain views and in-room amenities including separate living rooms, dining areas and wet bars, and in some cases with fireplaces.
This accommodation will be joined by an array of facilities such as an indoor heated pool area with sliding doors leading out to a patio, a nine-storey open-air atrium housing the lobby and License to Chill Bar, and restaurants including LandShark Bar & Grill, JWB Prime Steak and Seafood, Joe Merchant’s coffee shop and Come Monday Café for breakfast.
The hotel’s design will combine signature Margaritaville accents with inspiration taken from Lake Tahoe. The brand’s signature 13-foot flip flop will be designed in bright emerald green as a reference to Emerald Bay and a large double-sided fireplace will feature margarita glass chandeliers on each side.
Each space will pair the natural tones of the surroundings with pops of emerald green. The artwork of the lobby and suites will also draw on the locale and the hotel’s LandShark Bar & Grill restaurant will feature destination-inspired signage and décor such as crossed skis.
