I hope everyone had a great 2015! Ours was fantastic here at Lago Mar with one of the busiest winters in the history of the resort. Summer was good too, with lots of sunshine and gorgeous ocean conditions. I can’t leave out that the second generation, my parents, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last June. Wow! As far as the seven members of the fourth generation are concerned, they have been busy upgrading the playground by adding a foosball table and corn toss. They take their jobs very seriously and have a few more ideas, which we are working on implementing this spring/summer.
In this newsletter you will hear the oldest of the fourth generation, Demi, describe her 2015 transformation into a master of health and fitness with the help of Chef Phil’s new menus, teen facials in the spa, and “add on” workouts using the state-of-the-art equipment in our fitness center. My mom has been focusing on redecorating the Ocean Grill by adding some colorful touches, fun sconces, and island-inspired rattan ceiling fans, giving it even more of a tropical feel. She and my dad also picked out beautiful dressers to go in all of our hotel rooms that were handmade by local craftsmen just for us. A small addition, but much appreciated by our sports enthusiasts, is a new 50-inch flat screen TV in our Wine Cellar Lounge.
Of course, one of my favorite areas of the resort is the spa and we are happy to introduce LED Light Therapy as one of several new enhancements that can be added to our basic facials. I am personally excited about our series of Pevonia Lacto-Flora Peels that we are now offering, which produces excellent anti-aging results. We also have incredible new Lumafirm and Power Repair serums and other products that are working wonders on our many spa guests as well as myself.
Chef Phil has been on an organic quest to ensure our guests and members who choose to embrace a “clean and healthy” lifestyle are able to do so here at Lago Mar. His new dinner menu offers several organic and gluten-free options as well as several items presenting an array of super foods that Demi is very excited about! Even The Soda Shop is promoting a high level of well-being by providing nutritious snack options throughout the market.
For those of you who have visited the resort in the last few months you might have noticed fabulous new signage throughout the property. These are just little improvements we make everyday. We are in continuous renovation mode here at the resort because Lago Mar is like our home and you are our houseguests and we want you be happy!
Lastly, we look forward to even more improvements throughout 2016, including updates to Acquario, which are in progress now – new carpeting, drapery valences and beautiful wood shutters to inspire a West Indies look. My family and the entire Lago Mar staff invite you to visit us soon to celebrate our traditions and enjoy our transformations.
