This place is as good as the rave reviews. I am just adding another. Have learned that the best time to arrive is Sunday nite and leave on Friday as you miss a lot of the busyness of weekend attraction to the Spa facility. My daughter and I arrived on Thursday and left on Sunday. We thought we were taking a bit of a chance with the hot weather, but the specials offered made it appealing. The weather was hot, but the buildings are always comfortable and the breeze by the Lake made sitting outside very inviting and even more relaxing. The food was delicious and it is always easy when you are not worrying about the prices on the menu and wanting a bit more food.
All of the staff seems inherently focused on customer service without being obsequious or invasive. The Spa staff my daughter and I encountered were all excellent. We took some of the classes for yoga and exercise that interested us, and the short hike was great and the boat ride down the river was also pleasant. My daughter also stand-up paddled and kayaked. There were a lot of guests who indicated they were returning, and it is easy to see why. I would love to take my whole office there for a treat but it is too far to travel. I would also go if i were travelling solo and looking to be safe, active and well fed.
It is a great mother daughter or father daughter visiting place and a perfect venue for spending time with an adult child who will also appreciate the spa services. 5 days would have been perfect.
If you have time and are within 100 miles of Austin, go!
