We have begun distributing these awesome weekly informational flyers for what’s happening all over Lake Lanier Islands Resort for our guests and visitors! You can find out where the Seafood Buffet will be on Friday, who’s playing at Big Beach on Saturday, and when the party starts at Sunset Cove and plan your vacation according to what you want to see and do! In addition to all of our weekly events like Flip Flop Fridays, you’ll have times and information for special events like the Fun Time Players and Big Beach Parties. And those are just at LanierWorld! Fun Ashore & More also gives you the times for when our boat rentals begin at Harbor Landing, the hours of operation for Tranquility on the Water, when Kayaks and Paddleboards are available for rental, and the hours for our Lake Lanier Canopy Tours.

All About Those New Access Passes!

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

Today it’s all about clearing up any confusion you may have about our new Access Passes! We know this new structure might be a little tough to handle at first, but our friendly and professional staff is here for you, and we’re going to make this smooth like silk.

First of all, why is Lake Lanier implementing this new charge?

Well, based on your feedback, we’ve implemented a variety of improvements at LanierWorld that we are super pumped about. We have now completed the implementation phase, and it’s time for us begin including these awesome new features in our standard access fares. What are these new features, you ask?

We have new, more, and better entertainment! Every single day at LanierWorld we’re featuring at least one band, and often up to THREE! All over the park!! Seriously, our entertainment schedule is jam packed with rad bands, both famous and local. PLUS, we’re offering totally NEW things like the Fun Patrol and interactive kids’ entertainment!

We have extensive new food and beverage options, from all new Boardwalk dining to Bullfrog’s little cousin Tad’s! Have you ever had a Walking Taco? Try it at the Sunset Cantina on Boardwalk! Want to order pizza from Gianni’s and eat it on your boat? Order through your mobile device! Chill out by the Dockside Bar and enjoy patio dining or take your drink down to the beach!

Speaking of dockside, we’ve poured a ton of effort into renovating our Sunset Cove and Big Beach Docks. Be sure to check them out, they’re simply fantastic!

Still speaking of Dockside, you may have noticed our most obvious addition: The Boardwalk, where the Lakeside Entertainment District comes alive! There are tons of dining options just in this strip, PLUS our new Ferris wheel, carnival games, FunTime entertainment, and patio dining!

Furthermore, thanks to popular demand, we’ve extended Big Beach and pulled in even more umbrellas and beach chairs for rental, AND completely renovated and upgraded our bathrooms! For real you guys, Princess Kate would even use these things. They’re that nice.

 

Here are the 2 Access Only Pass options, each $10 per person, not including kids age 6 and under:

Option 1: Daily Dining, Retail, and Spa Access

Stroll up, buy the $10 Option One Access Pass, and we’ll immediately give you a $10 voucher that is good towards Dining/Food concessions, any of our retail shops, or our new Tranquility on the Water Spa in LanierWorld. This option DOES NOT INCLUDE Beach Access, and is valid ONLY on the day of entry.

Option 2: Daily Beach Access

Stroll up, buy the $10 Option Two Access Pass, and you get all day access to the beach, umbrellas, and beach chairs (which are first come, first serve). You ALSO get access to all our Boardwalk games and Ferris wheel, the volleyball courts, Sunset Cove and Big Beach restaurants, non-lifeguarded swim areas, AND Lakeside Links Minigolf. That is A LOT of things! This option DOES NOT INCLUDE the voucher from Option 1.

Now, we know everyone will have specific questions, so we’re going to try to answer a few of those here today in, you guessed it!, HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO TIME!!

Access Only Pass Scenarios:

You get off your awesome boat and say, “I don’t like sand in my shorts – I only want to go to the Sunset Cove Beach Cafe & Club to eat.”

Your best option is Option 1.

 

You get off your awesome boat and say, “I want to enjoy the beach all day, I LOVE building sandcastles!”

If you come more than 3 times per year, then we recommend the SEASON Beach Pass, not the Daily Beach Access PassThe SEASON Beach Pass is $35 and includes ALL the DAILY Beach Pass features, but it’s valid for the whole season, which is May-September.

If you’re just visiting today, then Option 2 is best for you. 

 

You’re walking around the beach, and you’ve, um, “forgotten” to purchase a Beach Pass:

One of our nice staff members will approach you and say, “I notice you aren’t wearing a Beach Access wristband, would you like to purchase one now? Let me direct you to the nearest purchasing booth.”

But you’re all like “I don’t want to pay for this.”

Since we’ve finished implementing all those amazing new things you saw earlier, our beach is now for patrons only. It’s cool if you want to pull up in your boat and hang out, but we’ve got a pristine beach to maintain, and if you want to use it, we need everyone to do their part – even if it is just pitching in $10 per person.

 

You get off your awesome boat and say, “I just want to get a drink.”

Are you planning on eating, too? If so, then Option 1 is best for you – it includes a food and retail voucher.

If you aren’t planning on eating, then Option 2 is best – it includes beach access so you can relax on the beach while you enjoy your beverage.

 

You get off your awesome boat and say, “My kids just want to play on the beach and build sandcastles – I’d rather just stay on my awesome boat.”

Option 2 is best for you. We do require that kids under 12 be accompanied by an adult chaperone, though. Even though kids walk around our park all day without their parents holding their hands, our beach is not patrolled by lifeguards like our waterpark is. For your kids’ safety, we’re counting on you as a responsible and super cool chaperone to help them build that rad sandcastle and just keep an eye on them while they’re on the beach.

 

You’re thinking to yourself right now, “I read/heard last week that I get a voucher when I purchase an Access Pass…”

You are describing Option 1.

Come treat yourself to a massage in one of our private treatment suites. Relax and re-center yourself so you can happily check off the rest of your “to do” list and enjoy your holidays.

YOUR FIRST SPA VISIT…

Monday, October 6th, 2008

There was a time when spa treatments were only for the rich and famous. This is no longer true as more and more people enjoy spas and the relaxing environment they provide.

Your first visit is always challenging, so let me give you some information that will help you relax and avoid unwanted surprises.

Make your spa reservations in advance to make sure you have the treatment(s) and days of your choice. While scheduling your appointment specify the therapist gender to make sure you are comfortable during the treatment. Most spas have male and female technicians so it shouldn’t be a problem and keep in mind that you are ALWAYS professionally covered during your treatments.

If you are pregnant please notify the spa concierge to avoid any complications. Many spas require a note from your physician so make sure you have one with you if you are on vacation…

Cell phones and pagers must be turned off prior to entering a spa to ensure a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere for all guests.

Please shower prior to your treatments. Most spas have lounges and amenities to facilitate this process.

Generally body treatments and massages are enjoyed without clothing; however, if for any reason you do not feel comfortable as such, know that disposable undergarments are ALWAYS available for your convenience.

Alcohol is not recommended before, during or immediately following spa treatments.

In a resort environment gratuities are automatically added to your spa services. It is always a good practice to ask prior to your visit to avoid any “surprises”.

If you invite your child to the spa, please verify their children policies prior to your visit.

Understand the spa cancellation policies, as you may be charged full price if you do not cancel on time, which is normally 24 hours in advance.

Have fun and relax…… You will get used to it very quickly!!!!
