Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Beautiful, serene lakefront grounds
  • Three large pools -- one is indoors
  • Bright, elegant decor throughout
  • Airy rooms with modern technology
  • Gorgeous spa has outdoor massage facilities
  • Sun-soaked dining room overlooks the lake
  • Large, bright fitness center has vistas of the lake
  • Suites have private patios with Jacuzzis
  • Freebies include daily breakfast and Wi-Fi

Cons

  • About 40 minutes to downtown Austin
  • There have been some complaints of poor dining experiences

Bottom Line

This lakeside retreat along the shores of Lake Austin is more than a spa resort -- with kayaking, canyon hikes, yoga and "discovery programs," Lake Austin Spa Resort is a true wellness destination. Its log-cabin-like exterior is enhanced by its natural surroundings, while the French-inspired interior is bright and elegant. The 40 rooms continue this look, with classic but stylish furnishings, and feature modern technology (iPod docks and flat-screen TVs). Gorgeous lake views can be seen throughout -- from the sun-soaked dining room, cheerful lobby, upstairs living room, and even the modern fitness center. There are three pools, one of which is housed in a barn, and outdoor massage facilities are surrounded by trees. The cooking class kitchen is cute and homey, just like the rest of the resort.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On Lake Austin, about a 40-minute drive to downtown Austin

Perched along 19 acres on the shores of Lake Austin, Lake Austin Spa Resort is a true wellness retreat. Surrounded by nothing but water and hillside, the resort is less than half an hour's drive from the airport and about 40 minutes outside downtown Austin. Guests won't find shops or restaurants within walking distance, but those who come here typically look for a different kind of vacation.

The capital city of Texas and home to the University of Texas, Austin is a quirky mix of straight-laced business types and creative artists. The city gains attention each year with annual festivals, including Austin City Limits and SXSW (South by Southwest). Locals and visitors can get the best of both worlds with the excitement of a big city and the leisure found in nearby lakes and golf courses.

  • 27-minute drive to Lakeway Airpark
  • 47-minute drive to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport
  • 5-minute walk to Lakeland Park
  • 21-minute drive to Lake Travis
  • 26-minute drive to golfing at Austin Country Club
  • 37-minutes to Austin City Limits Music Festival
  • 38-minute drive to the Paramount Theatre
  • 39-minute drive to the Long Center for the Performing Arts
  • 40-minute drive to Emo's
  • 40-minute drive to the South Congress area
  • 1-hour-and-15-minute drive to Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge
