Find yourself at Lake Austin Spa Resort

Consistently rated one of the top resorts in the world, Lake Austin Spa Resort, tucked away on 19 waterfront acres just outside of Austin proper, has been designed to cater to the needs of anyone seeking relaxation and renewal in a luxury setting. Lake Austin Spa Resort wins over guests with its healthy cuisine, tranquil setting and quaint decor found in the common areas as well as in the rooms. The LakeHouse Spa, with over 100 treatments to choose from, and unlimited fitness classes round out the experience.


The Garden Library located just off of the organic vegetable and flower garden. The decor found here, reminiscent of an English Manor House, is carried throughout the resort. Floral chintz fabrics, one of kind pieces of art and old books create a homey feel.


The Living Room located off the main lobby. The inviting decor makes it the perfect place to enjoy a light afternoon snack, served daily at 3 PM, and a refreshing beverage.


The Lake Austin Culinary Experience® features award winning chefs and other experts the second week of each month.


The fitness studio is home to many of the classes taught on a daily basis. Regular offerings include cardio and dance, strength, aquatic, and meditation and yoga.


The LakeHouse spa pool area open to both day and resort guests.

My Luxury LakeView room had a private patio in the rear and a porch with a retractable awning. Both the patio and the porch were decorated with Brown Jordan Savannah furnishings.
