Set amongst 19 picturesque acres of prime Texas Hill Country land on the shores of Lake Austin, the Lake Austin Spa Resort is a respite for visitors to Austin. Whether for a day at the spa or overnight at their acclaimed hotel, the resort can be enjoyed by anyone looking for a moment of solace in their busy life. Though only 45 minutes from downtown, this spa resort is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Travelers can expect nothing but the best in wellness and relaxation here.
With just 40 rooms, the Lake Austin Spa Resort is intimate. You don’t have to worry about bumping into hordes of people on your way to lunch at the delicious Aster Cafe or during a swim at the very chic “pool barn”. Every guest signs-up for their own activities, meals and spa treatments at their own will and comfort level. This is not bootcamp. Your stay, whether 2, 3, 4 or more nights, includes three delicious meals a day which are made largely from food grown on property. And, unlike many spas, wine is allowed! It’s okay to have fun and enjoy yourself responsibly at Lake Austin.
Winding your way through the well-manicured gardens, babbling brooks and shaded lawns you reach the resort’s incredible spa. 25,000 square feet of pure bliss is what you’ll find. Every detail has been thought through, from the elegant-casual decor with artwork by local Texas artists, or the well-appointed changing rooms – the spa is pure heaven. As a visitor, you can choose from a melange of treatments. You will find options like: the “Tour of Texas”, which includes an exfoliating body scrub with prickly pear (native to Texas), an agave nectar wrap, a face and scalp massage and a full-body 50-minute rub down. You can find their extensive treatment list here, which is enough in itself to make you book a flight to Austin.
Activities on site include hiking, water sports, yoga, exercise classes – leisurely and intensive, and more. There is something for everyone to tailor-make their very personalized stay. But, what is most endearing about this destination spa is the people on staff. From the chefs to the restaurant servers, the massage therapists to the gardeners – everyone carries themselves with an air of positivity and light which is refreshing and makes your stay here memorable. We recommend a stop or a stay at the Lake Austin Spa Resort while in the area, missing it would be a mistake.
