Lake Austin Spa

At a Glance

    Pros

  • Lake Austin Spa's offerings not only display a variety of rich and complex flavors but in a mindful way of using nature's best ingredients
  • a complete feeling of comfort

    Cons

  • while the complimentary flip flops you receive at check in are a nice touch, they don't protect against the loose rocks in the caliche pathways, which tend to collect between your toes
  • the three night minimum for close to $1,800 per person is rather expensive

Lake Austin Spa Review

Perhaps one of Austin's most luxurious getaways. Lake Austin Spa is located about more than a half-hour drive from town, deep into a wooded ravine right along the banks of Lake Austin. The expansive property is happily situated to reveal the lake as its primary focus with a line of 40 cozy cottage-style guest rooms built into a hillside overlooking the water. You'll also find verdant lawns with looming cypress trees, an elongated barn housing a heated lap pool, well appointed fitness, yoga and exercise equipment rooms, an outdoor sunning pool and hot tub, and a 25,000-square-foot spa offering more than 100 spa and salon treatments such as the Tour of Texas, which features an exfoliating prickly pear body scrub, aloe vera body wrap, scalp massage and full-body massage with prickly pear lotion. Activities include extensive indoor and outdoor fitness and water activities and wellness programs including Rise and Shine Yoga, Tai Chi on the docks, cardio kickboxing in the treehouse loft studio, kayaking and riding hydro-bikes on the calm lake waters. Dining is available in the resort Dining room and in the Aster Cafe at the LakeHouse Spa. Executive Chef Stephane Beaucamp blends French influences with local inspirations to create healthy—yet flavorful—menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner and also offers up a few of his best cooking tips in weekly cooking classes. A self-service beverage bar—with hot teas, coffee, fresh juices and fruit — is available throughout the day.
