Lake Austin Spa Resort
My mom and I recently went on a quaint stay-cation at one of the top 10 health and wellness resorts, in the world, according to USA Today, Condé Nast Traveler, & Travel + Leisure: Lake Austin Spa Resort. To say I was excited to experience the luxury and accommodations of this all-inclusive Texas Hill Country Resort is an understatement, especially because this secluded retreat is literally in my backyard, right on the bank of Lake Austin, and I'll probably (definitely) be wanting to visit again very soon!
Lake Austin Spa has a lot to offer, from all inclusive activities, fitness classes and guilt-free food, to packages or a la carte services at their world-renowned spa! We didn't check out the actual spa, but you can find a full overview here.
Lake Austin Spa now offers a boat taxi, sunset cruises, and you can also set up a water activity like wake boarding!
Poached Pear w/ Goat Cheese, Cashew Kale Dip & Smoked Salmon Rillette
Quesadilla, BBQ Chicken Flatbread & Bison Burger. Don't forget to try their frozen yogurt!
Here's a look at what we did w/links (they offer so much it was hard to choose - see full activities schedule HERE!):
- 10AM ARRIVAL & Tour
- 11AM - Pound Drumming for Full Body Strength
I thought this class was so fun! Who else watches This Is Us and remember's Kate doing that drumming class at her wellness retreat? That's all I could think about! It was a lot of fun, plus I got to pretend I was a legit drummer.
- 12PM - Completely CORE
- 12:30PM - Lake Front Lunch
My mom & I both tried their Plate Lunch. I did: Chicken, Quinoa, Broccolini & Cauliflower with Coconut Curry Sauce. Mom did a sirloin steak plate (I forgot everything she put on hers, but it was all good!).
- 1-3:30PM - We enjoyed leisurely lake activities (SUP), the pool and walked around the garden.
- 4PM - Gentle Yoga Flow
Does anyone else have the hardest time focusing in Yoga? I really enjoy it, I took a class in college and LOVED it, I just have a hard time quieting my mind!
- 5-7PM - We took some down time, freshened up for dinner, and explored the resort grounds some more!
- 7PM - Lake Front Dinner!
We started with a poached pear app, cashew kale dip, smoked salmon rillette and kale salad! Then we both ordered pasta. Rigatoni and a specialty pasta they were offering that night along with a glass of rosé! Also you HAVE to end every meal with their special frozen yogurts!
Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes, Migas, & Avocado Toast
The most beautiful view on our 3 mile hike!
The resort had the CUTEST decor everywhere!
- 8AM - Lake Front Breakfast
Mom ordered: Omellete & Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes. I ordered: Avocado Toast & Migas.
