Margaritaville Resort Lake Tahoe Celebrates Opening, Welcoming Guests to a Tropical Oasis in the Heart of South Lake Tahoe

Margaritaville’s First Ski Resort Now Open, Offering 20% Off Best Available Rates Just In Time For 2024 Ski Season

Margaritaville Resort Lake Tahoe is now open in South Lake Tahoe, marking the newest addition to the Margaritaville portfolio and the brand’s first ski destination resort. Nestled amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the 399-suite property stands as the only all-suite resort hotel in the Lake Tahoe basin, promising a memorable escape for guests seeking the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure.

“We’re thrilled to officially open our doors and introduce the Margaritaville lifestyle to the South Lake Tahoe community as well as visitors to our beautiful destination,” said Bob Jensch, Managing Director of Margaritaville Resort Lake Tahoe. “We look forward to welcoming guests to our slice of paradise in the mountains.” 

Located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, Margaritaville Resort Lake Tahoe is within walking distance of some of the area’s top attractions, including Heavenly Mountain Gondola, the newly completed Tahoe Blue Event Center, and the crystal-clear waters of Lake Tahoe. 

Mountain Latitude, Island Attitude

Following a $70 million property-wide reimagination, the newly rebranded resort infuses Margaritaville’s classic island vibe with a distinctive Lake Tahoe charm. Perfect for families or groups, each casual-luxe suite starts at 511 square feet, boasting stunning views of the lake or mountains and featuring separate bedroom and living room spaces with a dining table and wet bar. Each spacious suite offers vibrant décor, plush furnishings, and thoughtful touches with a distinct island ambience, with color palettes evoking the sand, sea, and sky. Additional design elements adapt the property for all four seasons and thoughtful details reflect the destination, including the year-round heated pool that features sliding doors to a patio offering views of the surrounding mountain landscape during the warmer months. 

Culinary Delights

Margaritaville Resort Lake Tahoe features five unique dining establishments, open to both guests and the public, including the lobby’s License to Chill Bar, LandShark Bar & Grill, Joe Merchant’s Coffee & Provisions, Come Monday Café, and JWB Prime Steak and Seafood. Offering a delightful array of island-inspired beverages and delectable cuisine, the dining experiences at the resort are set to become the go-to options for locals and visitors alike in South Lake Tahoe. And whether for après-ski or happy hour, regular live music performances will enhance the vibrant atmosphere of the restaurants.

Inspired by the traditional beach bars of the Atlantic Coast, LandShark Bar & Grill, located on the hotel’s ground floor, features favorites such as the iconic LandShark burger, fish sandwiches, tacos, and refreshing salads. With indoor-outdoor seating, LandShark is the perfect spot to enjoy delicious fare while taking in the unmatched beauty of Lake Tahoe.
