I haven’t been to Gatlinburg for quite a few years, but I love going there. Gatlinburg has so many different things to do including exclusive places to stay. And this summer a new resort is opening up, Margaritaville.
Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg, the anticipated new riverfront resort in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg, announced its mid-summer 2018 opening with a new general manager at the helm. Travelers looking to change their latitude and visit the Great Smoky Mountains can book by July 1st for stays beginning July 2nd, and receive 20 percent off nightly room rates.* This is a beautiful location, and the Smoky Mountains are named that for a reason!
Ideally situated for endless exploration, Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg is minutes from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and within walking distance of top area attractions such as Anakeesta Outdoor Theme Park, shops, and restaurants. Tons and tons of things to do and see.
When it opens, the five-acre, 163-room resort will incorporate a casual-luxe design found throughout guestrooms and public spaces, including a variety of accommodations with rooms featuring two queen beds or king beds and fireplaces, one and two-bedroom suites and unique family suites with a children’s room.
“We set out to create a mountain oasis, inspired by Margaritaville’s authentic ‘no worries’ vibe, where guests can choose a different way to chill each day, from enjoying the resort’s on-site amenities to having boundary-stretching adventures in the mountains,” said Bob McManus, president and developer of the Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg.
Resort Amenities and Dining
Resort amenities include an indoor pool, hot tub, expansive outdoor pool area with a large two-loop waterslide and splash pad, covered terrace with fireplace and 24-hour fitness center. On-site dining options will include a License to Chill Lobby Bar, LandShark Bar & Grill and Joe Merchant’s Coffee and Provisions. In-room dining will also be available.
St. Somewhere Spa
Combining the breathtaking surroundings of the mountains with Margaritaville’s signature sense of fun and island escapism, Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg will feature a 4,000 square foot, full-service St. Somewhere Spa. Indulgent treatments and services will kick-start a relaxing escape, nurture the body after active outdoor adventures, and pamper guests with beauty treatments. Multiple treatment rooms will offer a selection of massages, facials and skin care, as well as salon services.
Flexible Function Space
The resort will offer more than 3,000 square feet of flexible function space with state-of-the-art technology. A highlight will be the “Edge of Paradise,” an outdoor event space perfect for wedding ceremonies, corporate group events and other special celebrations. Catering menus will be customized to suit each group, with a welcoming team of dedicated event professionals on-hand to manage every detail.
