If you’re looking for an Austin resort, there are a couple of options to consider.
Austin lies at the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, and with several lakes in the area, the rolling hills make Austin perfect for great golf courses and resorts.
I think these Austin resorts offer beautiful surroundings, a great atmosphere, and quiet relaxation that can compete with some of the best resorts out there.
The Lake Austin Spa Resort is a health and fitness spa situated on Lake Austin, and about 35 minutes’ drive northwest of downtown Austin.
It is well-known for its relaxed, casual atmosphere. Because of this relaxed atmosphere, you don’t need to take along any jewelry or fancy clothing, but do take exercise clothing.
Rooms are large, comfortable, and nicely decorated. They also have just about any amenity you might need, including robes. You also get a complimentary pair of spa sandals.
The Lake Austin Spa Resort is not intended for families with smaller kids. The youngest age allowed is 14.
Contrary to the Lake Austin Spa Resort, the Lakeway Resort and Spa is a great option for families with smaller kids.
The Lakeway Resort and Spa overlooks Lake Travis. It has a luxury spa (San Saba Spa) and offers other activities such as the golf and tennis, and it has a boat marina. It also has a great children’s program for kids aged 4 to 10.
Rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Most rooms have a view over Lake Travis and many of them have a private balcony.
I think this is a great option for families looking for an Austin resort!
There is one other resort that I know of in the Austin area. Their golf course is apparently very nice, but I have seen too many negative reviews on their lodging to feel comfortable recommending them at this time. If that situation changes, I will list them here as well.
So, if your children are older than 14, or if you’re looking for a resort for yourself and your spouse or friend, the Lake Austin Spa Resort is a good option. If you have younger children, go with the Lakeway Resort and Spa.
Another option is to stay in a regular hotel and visit either spa as a day-guest.
Enjoy your stay in Austin!
