Lago Mar Beach Re­sort & Club, a land­mark on Fort Lauderdale Beach, is al­ways a mul­ti­sen­sory treat. But come night­time, this AAA fourstar re­sort takes on a spe­cial glow.

The is­land in the swim­ming la­goon is lit with tiki torches. Of­ten, a gui­tarist plays re­lax­ing melodies outdoors. Sooth­ing mu­sic also em­anates from the rocks in the la­goon and from the Prom­e­nade Walk­way. And par­ents can en­joy din­ner with­out the kids, yet still watch over them, be­cause the kids can play in the sand four feet away.

At Lago Mar, all your senses are in­ten­si­fied at night. Sud­denly you’re aware of the sound of waves lap­ping the beach. You can re­ally smell the salt air, the eu­ca­lyp­tus and the aro­mas from Chef Phil’s kitchen. You can hear the whis­pers of cou­ples nest­ing in ham­mocks by the beach. And you’ll en­joy a mini-light parade as kids run around the pool in their glow-in-the-dark neck­laces pro­vided by the re­sort.

Big-screen movies are shown on the beach at night dur­ing the hol­i­days. And from early March into July, there are spe­cial guided night tours to wit­ness nat­u­ral mir­a­cles as gi­ant sea tur­tles lay their eggs, and, six to eight weeks later, as their hatch­lings try to make their way to the ocean.

Lago Mar Re­sort & Club shines as brightly at night as it does in the day­time.
