“This is Heaven!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

A friend and I spent 3 days at the spa in May. Though Austin is in the middle of a several year drought, we brought the rain! Sadly, because of all the much-needed rain, we weren't able to enjoy the lake sports, but they certainly look fun!
Our room was clean and beautiful. There was plenty of room for the 2 of us to move around without crowding each other. The bath soaps, shampoos, lotions etc. are Lake Austin brand and smell really good!

Our spa services were equally wonderful. Each massage and facial treatment was exactly as described and so very, very relaxing. The spa is airy and well decorated, with a nice cafe on the first floor. The menu at the cafe is different than the menu at the resort dining room, so it's well worth your time to have lunch there during your stay. All the food was really tasty at both dining areas. Portion size was surprising (small) at the main dining room, but completely filling and flavorful, without loads of fat or heavy sauces. The portions at the cafe in the spa are larger. An absolute MUST is their homemade frozen yogurt. They make 2 flavors a day, plus a sorbet. Don't miss any of them!

The staff at the resort couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. We arrived late, after several delays due to weather, but just managed to make our evening spa service. The desk people helped us order room service so that we would have a chance to get food before dining services ended, and helped us "fast track" our check-in.

We were really sad to leave the spa, and will definitely return!

I was looking for a spa to take my mother, but when my husband read about Lake Austin he wanted to go with me instead. It turned out to be an amazing, relaxing time for both of us. The rooms were set up such that two women could easily go and maintain privacy discreetly, and also had a more southwestern flair that I find more attractive and comfortable than "Victorian" type spas. There were so many events and classes scheduled that I felt a little rushed, and many should have been an hour rather than 30 minutes because the instructors seemed rushed as well. I suppose it is because of the huge variety of classes and activities offered. The food was awesome (and we are so picky that we rarely eat out because our cooking is usually better) and the service was so personal that we felt like we had our own butler (we still pine for Rudy!) Every detail was flawless, there were no spiderwebs or dust anywhere (difficult in such a beautiful outdoor setting) and everyone was so friendly it felt as if we had known them forever. The spa treatments were rather pricey so you need to resign yourself in advance not to think about it. We decided this will be our "go-to" place when we need a stress escape and don't have anything planned (used to be Sonoma County.)

Room Tip: If you don't like dogs, ask for a room away from rooms that permit them.

I recently checked in to Lake Austin Spa Resort with my husband for a quick getaway and was blown away by the newly remodeled room. It was the perfect balance of luxury and comfort and we enjoyed a breathtaking view of the Lake. I was only sad that we had to leave so quickly. Delicious food, impeccable Guest service and relaxing spa treatments. Highly recommend this resort for a girls or couples getaway.

Room Tip: Lake View rooms are phenomenal.

I could go on and on about the great food, variety of exercise classes, heavenly spa treatments, incredibly beautiful location and my gorgeous newly remodeled room… Just have to say that I was ready to cry when I had to check out and leave and will be back again soon! I thought this might just be a place for women but there were lots of couples there and over the Easter weekend many families.

Only Spa where you could possibly gain weight because of all the fine food and wine! Great selection of activities-Spa treatments a little expensive but so many other things to do. Highly recommend it!

Room Tip: This was a mother/daughter trip (both adults)-had a great room with double beds-plenty of space

I have been coming here for several years and never tire of it. They have recently remodeled The Signature Rooms and they are beautiful. My husband is a golfer and I am not so I have been to more spas than I can count. This is my favorite. Trust me on this one.
