It will soon be 5 o’clock year round at Lake Conroe, with a new Margaritaville resort set to open in 2020.

According to a press release from real estate firm Songy Highroads, the current La Torretta Lake Resort and Spa will be redeveloped into a Jimmy Buffett-themed resort featuring 360 guestrooms, signature Margaritaville dining concepts, a golf course and spa.


“We are thrilled to bring our first Margaritaville resort in Texas to the Houston area with an incredible location on Lake Conroe,” said Rick Cunningham, SVP Margaritaville Development. “This resort will be a welcome escape for those in Texas’s major metropolitan areas and beyond, offering a lakeside paradise dedicated to relaxation, fun, adventure and the Margaritaville state of mind.”


Margaritaville resort will sit on 186 acres of waterfront property and expects to welcome guests in late 2020.

Located about an hour north of Houston and around three hours from the major hubs of Austin, Dallas and San Antonio, the site of the new resort is currently home to La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa.


After an extensive renovation, the new Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe will feature rooms in a main 20-story hotel tower, as well as waterfront villas on the lake. Two of the existing restaurants will be converted into signature Margaritaville dining concepts – LandShark Bar & Grill and 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill.

The property’s existing features will also be refreshed, including an 18-hole golf course, tennis facilities, spa, restaurants, outdoor pools, and 45,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space.
