This is the second time the resort has received the award for its ability to offer serious learning and serious fun for groups of all sizes. Not only does the all-suite resort offer an array of purpose-built meeting spaces, many with natural light to augment learning and engagement, but it also offers access to extraordinary and unique amenities for meeting attendees to refresh and renew, including 13 different on-brand team-building exercises.

Teams can participate in group-oriented activities such as “The Continental Drifter,” “Cardboard Boat Regatta,” and “Nama-Stay in Paradise” lakefront yoga classes. After the hard work is done, they can enjoy six island-inspired restaurants, an 18-hole golf course, an 18,000-square-foot wellness retreat, St. Somewhere Spa, and a state-of-the-art workout facility, Fins Up Fitness Center. In addition, meeting attendees rent a boat and set out on Lake Conroe to explore.

“Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe | Houston is proud of this ConventionSouth distinction and our ability to create top-notch experiences for meeting and event attendees across all industries,” said Tom Faust, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe | Houston. “We look forward to hosting groups at our tropical-inspired resort, conveniently located an hour north of the Greater Houston area.”




Margaritaville Lake Resort is among 416 convention and visitor bureaus, meeting facilities, and hotels across the South to receive this year’s Reader’s Choice Award. Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The selected sites are then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals and fans are asked to vote for the best of the best.

ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South. It is no surprise that Margaritaville Lake Resort has been selected to receive our annual Reader’s Choice Award,” said Tiffany Burtnett, Associate Publisher. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who host events in the South. Those planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities. They have determined that Margaritaville Lake Resort displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity, and services they require.”

For this designation, Margaritaville Lake Resort will be highlighted in the December 2022 awards issue of ConventionSouth.
