“Excellent Feb 14th retreat!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

My wife & i went for a two day retreat on Feb 14th and it was great!
- Spa services were incredible. We had a Couples Relaxing Massage and it was awesome.
- Service is outstanding. Throughout the stay, they gave us several welcoming and romantic details. Staff was always very kind and very catering.
- Food is good, being pretty much all organic products, but i wish they had a little bit more tasteful recipes.
- Resort and location is breathtaking (Pool, Spa, Rooms)

Room Tip: Canyon View Rooms have the best resort location

My best girlfriend from college & I picked Travassa for a two day retreat. This resort is a very unique property and the perfect place to re-connect with yourself, loved ones & nature.

Food, staff, location, room, activities...everything was great and we had no complaints. The only trouble was..when she flew back to Chicago and I drove back to Houston...we both missed the heavenly, incredibly soft throw blankets, coffee & catching up with each other on the stunning room balcony overlooking the beautiful hill country tree tops. Well done!

Can't wait to return with more girl friends or a romantic weekend with my husband! THIS is the Texas Hill Country done right!

The service was extremely friendly. It's not often I visit a hotel for one night and leave the next day knowing the names of half a dozen employees. The facilities are beautiful and extremely comfortable but the staff and level of service is what really sets this place apart.

It was my husbands birthday. He had been so busy with work and stressed that I thought a nice spa getaway would be perfect. It was! Everything was fantastic, and easy. We live in Austin, but coming here felt like we were really far away. It was so quiet and serene, the nature surroundings just made you relax. The spa treatments we received were awesome! The food was very fresh, clean and healthy. The staff was always kind and very catering. They have a number of fun activities on site, and although we didn't do a lot. We did enjoy the yoga class and the archery was a lot of fun. I would recommend Travaasa to anyone that just needs to get away from it all to unwind and relax, and to have some fun!

Room Tip: The far corner rooms are more private.

Green Features: It is very eco friendly, love the recycling and trash bins on the walk ways.

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.
