• The San Luis Resort, Spa, and Conference Center Mixes Business, Pleasure, and Meetings

    FROM THE Spring 2016 ISSUE

The San Luis Resort, Spa and Conference Center on Galveston Island ranges across a scenic 32-acre campus and features guest rooms that overlook the Gulf Coast and offer views of a sprawling heated swimming pool with a full-service swim-up bar. The San Luis is a fully accredited International Association of Conference Center facility and offers 200,000 square feet of meeting space, including the Galveston Island Convention Center, a 140,000-square-foot beachside venue along Galveston’s famed Seawall Boulevard. The GICC offers free Wi-Fi, shuttle services and on-site parking, along with other perks.

It’s easy to see why this destination is a top meeting spot in Texas, thanks to its easy access to Houston, more than 5,000 sleeping rooms, 32 miles of beaches and, of course, the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, which can be reserved for events.

Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston does not disappoint as a meeting destination.


Bolivar Beach Club & RV Resort is set to open in Crystal Beach on the Texas Gulf Coast as a premier RV resort and entertainment venue. The 150-acre beachfront resort will feature more than 500 RV sites and an amenity package that includes a 5-acre entertainment park with beachside concerts year-round. Throughout the resort, visitors will also have access to luxury concert suites, a turf football field, a food truck park, large resort pool and a fleet of golf cart rentals.


As COVID-19 restrictions ease, in-person meetings are making a comeback. 

“After a year of working in virtual environments, businesses of all sizes are finding the need to reconnect face-to-face in meaningful ways,” says Lisa Fasbender, general manager of the 186-acre Margaritaville Lake Resort on Lake Conroe in Conroe. “Our ability to host a meeting that combines serious learning with serious fun makes Margaritaville Lake Resort the ideal setting to collaborate and focus on team building.”
