Pigeon Forge Fire Department Enjoys Fun Afternoon at Margaritaville Island Hotel

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (Oct. 11, 2016) Pigeon Forge firefighters and their families enjoyed a sunny afternoon at Margaritaville Island Hotel’s Roof Top Pool Sunday. Firefighters and their families were treated to an all-American cookout, games for the kids, magic tricks and live music by Chad McWilliams.  “We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firefighters for helping us this summer and for everything they do for our community all year,” said Margaritaville Island Hotel General Manager Kristine Harmon.

Many local community partners contributed  time and gifts to help make this event a success. Doc’s Magic Shop amazed children and adults alike with magic. McKenzie Farmer, a certified lifeguard, watched over the pool.  The Arcade  and the The Sweet Shoppe on The Island donated prizes, and Jenny Pink donated her time and artistic talents by offering face painting.

And, although the weather was a bit cool, firefighters did enjoy swimming with their children in the hotel’s heated pool.  “We had a good turnout and are so glad everyone seemed to have a great chance to relax and enjoy a fun afternoon with the family,” said Lori Lee Rouse, Margaritaville Island Hotel’s concierge who coordinated all of the children’s games and activities.

Margaritaville Island Hotel is located on The Island and offers 134 guest rooms and suites, balconies overlooking the river, village and Island Show Fountains, Changes in Latitude’s Bar which is open to the public, a Roof Top Pool & Chill Bar and the St. Somewhere Spa.  The spa is also open to the public and offers complimentary valet parking and local discounts for Sevier County residents.

St. Somewhere Spa Opens at Margaritaville Island Hotel in Pigeon Forge

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (July 2015) – There’s an island-inspired spa experience in the Great Smoky Mountains with this summer’s opening of the St. Somewhere Spa inside the Margaritaville Island Hotel on The Island – Pigeon Forge’s new shopping, dining and entertainment district.

The 5,200-square-foot luxury spa  offers hotel guests and local visitors many ways to experience “Mountain Latitude, Island Attitude” with pampering services including facials, massages, body treatments, manicures, pedicures, spray tanning and a hair salon.

St. Somewhere Spa manager Pam McKay is working with the hotel to create some specialty services and spa packages.

“We are coordinating bridal packages and have already rolled out a great August weekday spa package that incorporates a $100 spa credit for each night of stay,” McKay said. “The package is available Sunday through Thursday throughout August, and you can tailor it to any length of stay.”

The spa is the latest addition to Margaritaville Island Hotel, which opened in October 2014.  The hotel wraps around The Island, providing guests with views of The Island Show Fountains, the 200-foot-tall Great Smoky Mountain Wheel and a wide variety of eateries, bars and retail shops.

The St. Somewhere Spa follows the opening of the hotel’s Changes in Latitude lobby bar and the rooftop pool and Chill Bar. The hotel also completed the Compass Rose Room this spring, which offers a 3,200-square-foot facility for weddings, banquets and meetings for up to 200 attendees in addition to a 2,500-square-foot riverfront terrace.

“We are excited to offer a unique experience to Pigeon Forge visitors,” said hotel general manager Kris Harmon. “Guests find everything they want within steps of the hotel, from dining and entertainment to shopping and now island-inspired relaxation with a world-class spa experience.”
