Tucked away just outside the city of Austin, Texas is the idyllic wellness retreat, Lake Austin Spa Resort. The perfect place for the Ultimate Girls Getaway. Just 20 minutes outside of the city, being here feels like you’re at your friend’s lake house or at Summer Camp for adults!
Last week I had the opportunity to join one of my best friends Jane Ko from A Taste of Koko and some of her closest girl friends for a “SPACATION”. It was definitely a treat to be an overnight guest at the all-inclusive Lake Austin Spa Resort, where a 3 night minimum is usually the norm (although we only stayed for 2).
Our first afternoon, we were treated to the most fabulous Spa Treatments – we all picked something different. The Spa is also open to day guests! I got the signature Lake House Spa Facial and it was amazing. My skin desperately needed some TLC because of all of the traveling I have been doing. I love all the products they carry like Naturopathica & Aromatherapy Associates.
There are 3 beautiful pools on property. Day passes for a section of the resort are available to those coming for Spa Treatments, but you really have to be an overnight guest to get the full experience. Your stay is all-inclusive of your classes & activities and all of your food (even room service)!
Highlights of the Trip
Playing on the Lake: They have all of the water activities like Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Hydro Bikes and Kayaking. They even have a boat for cruising around on the lake. There’s nothing better than being on the lake on a hot summer day.
Hanging around in your bathrobe: is the norm here (even at every meal)!
Healthy Food that Tastes Amazing: The French chef really has this whole healthy eating down. I’ve been wanting to go Gluten Free and Lake Austin Spa was the perfect place to get a good start. All the meals are customized to every diet. The food doesn’t even taste like you’re eating healthy! Rich in flavor, they make it so easy to go GF, DF and calorie count every meal. You can really tell the difference in the way you feel after a couple of days of clean eating.

Beautiful nooks around the property: to tuck yourself away with a good book.
Seriously Special Spa Treatments: The beautiful blue relaxation room and connected out door porch are the perfect place to wait for your spa appointments. Lake Austin Spa Resort just last year was voted #1 Resort in Texas & the Southwest by Condé Nast and #1 U.S Destination Spa by Travel + Leisure.
Over 13 Classes Offered Per Day: like hiking, yoga, spinning, cooking…my favorite was the Water Meditation class in the barn pool! See a sample activity list here.
The Gardens: not only peaceful to walk in but this is where all of the herbs used for there gorgeous meals are grown.
Some of my favorite meals included Gluten Free Blueberry Corn Pancakes for breakfast, Kale Dip, Carrot Miso Soup and Shrimp Tostado for lunch and Mahi Mahi with roasted eggplant for dinner. Not to mention their delicious Sorbet for dessert.
I have been traveling non stop for the last few months and the Lake Austin Spa was the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate before I head out again. A stay here is definitely a splurge but it is worth it. With the spa, two pools, lake activities and the heavenly food it is the perfect place to come with your girlfriends to just get away from the city and completely relax.
