“Great escape!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Excellent place to unwind in the Texas Hill Country. Amazing staff in all aspects of the Resort. Enjoyed all of my spa services, but really loved the Watsu water massage. An amazing experience. The kitchen had very delicious vegetarian options, which I really enjoyed, as well as the non veggie choices.

After a particularly grueling work schedule, we came to the spa to unwind. It was just what I needed. The spa is remote from the busy city and highways..out in the hill country where wild flowers are enough to cheer me up! The grounds are rustic and beautiful, The rooms are lovely, with balconies overlooking the hill country, and windows to open and let in the cool night air. The staff was accommodating, every request was promptly met, the pool and hot tub are so pretty and refreshingg, love the spa treatments, and the food is just wonderful and healthy, from nearby farms.

Room Tip: Rooms near the spa, if that is your passion...just a short walk is great.

I stayed here for my birthday and it was a delight! Waiting for me in my room was a delicious chocolate treat and a note from Kristine Huffman, their General Manager, welcoming me and thanking me for choosing to celebrate my birthday at Travaasa. The room was amazing, the staff was incredibly friendly and courteous, the activities were so much fun, and the farm-fresh food was delicious. The spa is gorgeous and it is no wonder that their pool is currently gracing the cover of Texas Monthly! I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Choose a trail room - the balconies are incredible! I also highly recommend the Total Travaasa, so m...

We were on a road trip and took two nights to sit quietly at Travassa before getting back in the car. The room was large, very comfortable and had a wonderful view of Hill country. The staff was very friendly and helpful at the Inn, the spa and the restaurant. We had two dinners at the restaurant and we were underwhelmed by the food coming out of the kitchen. Order just appetizers and desert and you will be very content.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a high room with a view out over the valley.

I was in desperate need of a retreat and this was the place to do it. The quality of service was excellent, the activities were priceless ranging from empowering to therapeutic. As soon as you drive through the gate you can feel the tension and stresses of life melt away, to say this was a life changing experience would not be an exaggeration. This was my first solo trip ever and it's the best place to start and revisit. Already planning my next visit with friends!

Room Tip: I had a top floor corner room. It was nothing less than perfect. The sunlight and the view when the...

This is definitely one of the best spas I've been to. The team made my Easter weekend unforgettable. There is something magical about this place. I loved everything and the activities offered a perfect variety. Delicious and healthy food from the farm.

My husband and I spent 4 nights here for our babymoon and absolutely enjoyed it. We enjoyed the spa, however wish the staff would really enforce the quite and silence in the waiting area. There are tons of activities to par take. We really enjoyed the farm tour. As well as the juicing class, archery and prickly pear course. This was a great trip and we look forward to going back.

Dear NutritiousFoodie,
We are so honored that you visited Travaasa for your babymoon. It sounds like you enjoyed many of our activities. I will speak to the spa manager about the noise in the treatment halls and waiting room area. We are going to be remodeling our spa this summer, so you'll be happy to see all the changes, including a redo of the waiting room area on your next visit. Hope to see you both again soon,
