Discover the Resort


As you step into the beautiful grounds of the Lake Austin Spa Resort, you're immediately enveloped by a sense of peace and tranquility. Sweeping, panoramic views of the glistening waters of Lake Austin enveloped by verdant, Texas greenery creates an immediate sense of peace. Located outside of Austin, Texas, this luxurious yet casual resort is located on the edge of the 21-mile lake (which feels like a river).

Activities That Revitalize


For the adventure enthusiasts, there's a variety of water activities, including stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and hydro biking.

If you’re focusing on inner peace, I suggest the meditation and mindfulness sessions, or Yoga by the Lake for an immersive nature experience.


Unleash your creative spirit in one of their unique 'garden to glass' gardening or cooking classes.

Revive Yourself at the Spa


Perhaps the gem of Lake Austin Spa Resort is The LakeHouse Spa.


What sets the LakeHouse Spa apart is its focus on integrating nature into its wellness approach. The spa boasts its own healing garden where it grows herbs and flowers for treatments, reinforcing their commitment to natural wellness. The LakeHouse is 25,000 square feet, and features treatment rooms (indoor and outdoor), indoor and outdoor pools, and so many options for treatments: massages, facials, body treatments, or nail therapies. Treatments blend the use of locally sourced and exotic ingredients, reflecting their belief in natural wellness. And treatments can be customized to individual preferences, ensuring a unique spa experience for each guest.

So, here’s a recap. The Lake Austin Spa Resort is an all-inclusive adults-only location, providing 40 cottages to stay in, with lake, garden, or hill country views. All meals and snacks are included at the two onsite restaurants. Your package includes activities, meals, and your transportation from downtown Austin. A package can include spa treatments if you’d like. The average stay is 3-4 nights; I recommend staying one or two nights in Austin prior to coming here, to make an extra fun experience.


Are you ready to embrace the Lake Austin Spa Resort experience? It’s a fantastic way to get away with your significant other or a group of friends, and experience some connection with yourself and some healthy, rejuvenating fun.
