Lake Austin Spa Resort
Just 30 minutes outside of downtown on a particularly spectacular bend in the river, Lake Austin is as amazing as day spa as it is an overnight retreat. Either way, you can use all spa facilities, the restaurant (many ingredients come from an on-site organic garden) and participate in daily fitness activities from water yoga in the stunning, barn-enclosed warm pool, paddle boarding, and hikes to river-based workouts). There are more than 100 services on the extensive mind- and body-nourishing spa menu—everything from standard Swedish to Chinese-medical cupping treatments—with specific options for mothers-to-be, couples, and groups. You can either book by service or by time; post-treatment, you can lounge by the series of swimming pools in the large hillside garden.
