KMOV.COM - The largest resort in the Lake of the Ozarks will become a Margaritaville.

“We are thrilled to combine the fun and escapism of our brand with these iconic locations, and provide additional opportunities for our guests to relax and have a great time, which is what we are all about," said John Cohlan, chief executive officer of Margaritaville.

Tan-Tar-A resort is located in Osage Beach, Missouri and has a list of highly sought after amenities:

  • 500-room lakefront property spread across 1,150 miles of shoreline on Lake of the Ozarks

  • 27-holes of golf across two courses

  • 103-slip marina

  • 8 food and beverage venues

  • Full-service spa and salon

  • Fitness Center

  • Horseback and pony riding

  • Numerous sports facilities including tennis, basketball and beach volleyball courts

  • Indoor and outdoor pools

  • 20,000 square-foot indoor waterpark

  • More than 91,000 square feet of event space

  • On-site wedding chapel

Tan-Tar-A was recently acquired by DAD – a privately held investment firm specializing in the acquisition and development of hotel assets – with JV partner Sefira Capital, a Miami-based investment boutique platform that focuses on acquiring and developing commercial real estate.  An affiliate entity of DAD, Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa has been owned by Costa Rica-based Hotelera Playa Flamingo SA and managed by Driftwood Hospitality Management (DHM) since 2003.

A portion of the equity of Tan-Tar-A will now be syndicated via DAD’s investment platform. DAD will assist Margaritaville with the rebranding efforts for both properties. 

“It’s a dream come true for us to partner with Margaritaville, as we help to rebrand Tan-Tar-A and Flamingo Beach,” said Carlos Rodriguez, chief executive officer of DAD. “The Tan-Tar-A acquisition has helped us reach our 2017 growth goal already, just halfway through the year, and Flamingo Beach has been near and dear to my heart for a very long time.  We’re excited to get underway, working together with the Margaritaville team to help travelers create unforgettable memories in the Midwest..."
