Osage Beach, Mo.—Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake of the Ozarks, announced its official transition to a Margaritaville property. The resort underwent a phased renovation process that included refreshed guestrooms and public areas, signature Margaritaville food and beverage concepts, and updated amenities and activities such as the Jolly Mon Indoor Water Park and Fin City Bowling Alley.

“We are thrilled to officially bring the Margaritaville lifestyle to Lake of the Ozarks with our rebranding,” said Fred Dehner, the resort’s general manager. “We look forward to continuing to provide a fantastic, unique experience to guests under the Margaritaville name, especially as the brand’s first full-service lake resort.”

A larger-than-life blue flip flop sculpture sits outside the main resort entrance, leading to a newly renovated lobby complete with a License to Chill Bar & Grill and Margaritaville Coffee Shop. All buildings at the resort complex are now a shade of warm sand with white trim. Guestrooms in the resort complex received a refresh with Margaritaville’s signature casual-luxe design, including warm wood elements and bright accents.
