The Lagoon Development Company has selected American Resort Management to manage Lagoonfest Texas 2022, according to a press release.

ARM will act as the owner’s representative and help with the daily operation of Lagoonfest Texas, which kicks off March 11 with a spring break celebration.

“Our goal is to provide a unique luxury beach life experience with great customer service delivering smiles to the thousands of families that will visit our new and improving attraction,” said Uri Man, Lagoon Development Company’s CEO. “For this reason, we sought out best in class talent to manage the facility.”

Lagoonfest, now in its third season, is a public beach experience at the Lago Mar master-planned community, 3240 Lago Mar Blvd., Texas City. The community surrounds a 12-acre crystal-clear lagoon—the largest in Texas—that emulates a natural beach.

“We are excited to support the operation of this beautiful crystal-clear lagoon. This is truly one of Texas’ most unique destinations,” said Richard Coleman, American Resort Management CEO. “This will be a destination that is sure to provide outstanding and unforgettable guest experiences for years to come.”

Future plans for the community include a beach club, hotels, retail shops, restaurants and new entertainment venues, according to the release.
