From its humble start in 1997 to its incarnation as the number one destination spa in the United States, 40-room Lake Austin Spa Resort endures, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with new programs and new services.
Twenty new spa treatments have been added, services that are offered at the 25,000 square-foot LakeHouse Spa, which was added to the property in 2004. Expanded directions include energy work and vibrational healing, water immersion therapies, and oxygen facials, with many services incorporating organic skin care lines. New treatments include a Weekend Warrior Massage designed for athletes, a Neroli Blossom Sensory Massage created to reduce tension and promote deeper breathing, Floating Meditation in the temperature-controlled Pool Barn, and a LakeHouse Oxygen Facial.
Guests also have a new option for reaching the destination spa located in the beautiful Hill Country outside of Austin, Texas. A luxury water motorcraft, or “luxe water taxi,” can transport day and overnight guests from downtown Austin 25 miles to the shores of the resort. Guests can choose more water fun upon arrival, with The Ripple Effect series of classes that utilizes leg-powered stand up boards with a pedal mechanism that allows guests to work on cardio, core stability, and leg strength. Classes include Walk on Water Pedal and Paddle Outings, LakeFit Pedalboard Bootcamp, and LakeFit Pedal HIITS.
Also in celebration of its anniversary, Lake Austin Spa Resort has added “selfie stations” to help guests catalogue their experiences, as well as additional Aster after Dark events, featuring wine tastings, bestselling authors, and experts. A new artist series includes award-winning journalists, screenwriters, songwriters, and chefs throughout 2017.
