Lakeway Resort and Spa

With splendid views of Lake Travis, Lakeway Resort and Spa combines Texas charm with modern simplicity. A bevy of nearby activities, including golf, tennis and sailing, keep everyone interested, while the resort’s infinity pool (replete with swim-up bar) provides the optimal place to unwind. A short drive from the Hill Country’s many wineries and close to Austin’s famed nightlife, Lakeway Resort and Spa is the perfect spot for a lively family vacation or a fun-filled romantic getaway. 

Lake Austin Spa Resort

Retrieve your repose and find relaxation at Lake Austin Spa Resort -  a posh patchwork of Eden-like gardens, pools, floral-flanked trails, cozy cottages, and hammocks hung invitingly from trees. Set on the banks of an emerald-hued lake, just 30 minutes from bustling downtown Austin, this award-winning, top destination spa offers more than 100 spa treatments, including a Japanese Manaka Hammer ritual which taps your cares away. In your free time, practice yoga or take to the water in a kayak.

Travaasa Austin

It’s easy to immerse yourself in nature at Travaasa Austin, nestled in the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve of the Texas Hill Country. Try sunrise yoga, take a Texas two-step lesson, try your hand at a mechanical bullriding class or sample the award-winning spa. You’ll have worked up an appetite for the gourmet food like seared quail with fennel-shallot confit or a poblano pepper stuffed with achitoe quinoa. Travaasa, which translates to the word “travel” merged with the Sanskrit word “pravaasa,” meaning journey, bills itself as an experiential resort, and we wholeheartedly agree. Just a half-hour from Austin proper, guests feel as if they’ve been transported to a luxuriously secluded retreat that is anything but ordinary.
