Built in 2006, the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa is a 491-room upscale hotel that sits on 405 acres on the banks of the Colorado River just east of Austin, Texas. The hotel is packed with amenities including a water park, luxury spa, and award-winning golf course.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa


Family-friendly hotel with impressive amenities and activities on-site

The Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa is a three-building hotel with a focus on the outdoors. The resort evokes an upscale Southern atmosphere with large natural limestone exteriors and interiors and tasteful furnishings both inside and out, and the lobby, with its mix both the rustic and modern, has giant fireplaces, plush seating, and high two-story ceilings that give it a charming and inviting atmosphere. The Hyatt attracts plenty of families with its kid-friendly amenities, but both couples and business travelers are also kept in mind, as the hotel has numerous function spaces and a romantic spa.
