Margaritaville Resort reopens in Biloxi after closing due to Zeta
One well known resort, Margaritaville in Biloxi, has reopened their doors. It’s been closed since October after sustaining damages from Hurricane Zeta.
When Hurricane Zeta hit our Mississippi Gulf Coast the shoreline along Highway 90 looked like a battle zone. Margaritaville fought the odds and opened quicker than originally anticipated. They suffered water damage on their ground floor and exterior damage from Zeta’s winds. Farruggio’s Pizzeria General Manager Chris Gress said, “It’s been a very long past few months. We’ve been working very hard to make this grand opening something we’re proud of. I’m very happy to see all of this hard work come to fruition.”
The property not only received a fresh coat of paint and new carpet, but the addition of 80 more arcade games, new family suites, and a pizzeria that will be quick and easy for guests so they can get back to gaming. “I’ve been here for two years and it’s been an adventure with the COVID shutdown and the hurricanes. Each time we come back bigger and better.”
Tessy Lambert with Margaritaville Public Relations, lodging, and leisure investments said, “We were able to give this entire property a face lift and also put things in place that will be used for our expansion.”
Now that Margaritaville is reopened, the developers are putting their focus back into phase II of their expansion that will include an outdoor amusement center and parking garage. “We are lucky enough to have leadership that are not only dreamers, but doers. Their number one goal is to make the Mississippi Gulf Coast a destination location, a place where you’ll want to be.”
