The resort also offers guests excellent dining options at its Lakeside Restaurant and the opportunity to quench any thirst in the Sandpiper Lounge. The lobby features a business nook and gift shop for added convenience. Guests can take advantage of the fitness club with its impressive atrium style pool and hot tub made complete with exotic flowers and swaying palm trees. Ultimate relaxation can be achieved by scheduling a massage in the on-site spa.

The resort features 92 newly renovated guest rooms and suites suited for any manner of occasion. As a popular wedding venue, vacation destination and group meeting venue, the Illinois Beach Resort captures the curiosity of thousands searching for a tropical beach retreat without the necessity of a passport.
