Resort guests can step out of the resort lobby and stroll along the beaches, enjoy playing in the waves or just lounge on the sand and soak up the sun. The expansive lobby features floor to ceiling windows displaying panoramic views of the beach below. Newly renovated guest rooms are comfortable and exude an art deco elegance that reflects the original styling of the resort with a distinctly modern feel. Guests can choose from several room styles with views of the state park or windows and balconies overlooking the lapping waves.

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.
