Can't say enough about this place. First time visiting over Thanksgiving week by myself. I am originally from Austin and have been missing the laid-back Austin vibe. This resort manages to infuse their impeccable service with that very same vibe- it feels like a summer camp you never want to leave. I was rarely in my room- really only to...

Everything at this place is adorable! Modern amenities, traditional decor. I shared a room with a friend, it was small but so darn cute, the art, the fabric, the pillow and bed was so comfortable. The bathroom was large with plenty of counter space for two women (a big pet peeve of mine when I travel, never enough bath counter...

Dear Stephanie R, A few of your comments truly made us smile - the abundant counter space in the bathrooms - not being able to stay awake swinging in the lakeside hammocks - discovering our acupuncturist and his amazing talents - these are the small things you won't read about in a brochure or on a website, but it's these...

We splurged and got a room with a king size bed and a Lake Austin view. We stayed Sunday until Thursday and enjoyed every minute of it! The staff was friendly and extremely professional. The food, classes, atmosphere, and location of the Resort were all wonderful! I would have given it 5 stars, but the cost was high to stay...

Pros: location, service, delicious breakfast, friendliness of staff, lovely and knowledgable instructors ( Paul and Annemarie) Cons: the spa treatments are expensive and not first class. I asked for a deep tissue massage and the poor therapist had severe arthritis in her hands. Some of the instructors have no idea about taking care of the people in class. They co...

The Lake Austin Spa Resort is a gem. Tucked away outside of Austin, the capital of Texas, this resort/spa is worth the trip. My wife and I drove from Dallas last Thursday...the three plus hour trip down I-35 wasn't as bad as I feared. A lot of 35 has been improved - widened, re-paved, etc. - there are still parts...
