Great time away with my daughter and close friend. The spa treatments, the soulful courses , the pool, the above and beyond service and the plentiful array of exercise classes met all of our needs. We will go back again next year!
This was my second time at a Miraval property but my first in Austin. It was a truly wonderful experience. The spa, fitness and adventure classes, food and staff were all top notch. Beautifully located in hill country with stunning sunset views over the infinity pool at the spa. Shared transportation ended up being private for just me with very friendly and courteous driver. Highly recommend this property for your next zen vacation!
Miraval Austin is a perfect place to unwind and reconnect with yourself and loved ones. My daughter and I had a last minute trip to Miraval Austin and had the best time! We loved the vibe there - healthy, active and relaxing. We tried new things (photography class, medication, classes on sleep and metabolism) and enjoyed our favorites (yoga, delicious food, and nightly massages in their wonderful spa). The setting is beautiful and the staff go above and beyond.
We have nothing but positive comments for Miraval Austin!! We went for my college age daughter's Spring Break and, after going through a divorce a few months ago, we were looking to relax, unwind, recharge and to be pampered. Miraval delivered in every area!!! We were nurtured mind, body, and soul!!! Wonderful food! Gorgeous amenities!! Heavenly beds-like sleeping in whipped cream!!! Morgan and Emily at the Farm made a huge impact on us!!! From the second we arrived on the property until we drove away , our every need was anticipated and met. We are already planning our next trip!!
The Miraval is such a beautiful space, you absolutely can't go wrong! I love Austin just as much as Tucson, there is definitely a different feel, but beloved nonetheless. Next to Hilltop restaurant, I spent much of my stay at the Yoga Burn- it's so beautiful and captivating. Simply a well thought out sanctuary. Guest rooms are a good size, but maybe look at the property map ahead of time for any personal requests on preference in location. The Spa is really beautiful, but almost too big that I find it inconsistent with standards.....$500+ in treatments and yet I'm left underwhelmed. Book a night Spa treatment for the experience - the stars, fire pit, open sauna, roof top pool ambiance is majestic. Food is plentiful and tasty. I'm a newly plant based explorer and I didn't repeat a meal once in my 4 day stay. Though, I did get scolded (on the 1st night) by a very young dining room male host for "using" my phone. It’s not being “present,” I was told. I submitted, but it definitely ruined my stay. I felt shamed and embarrassed for exercising a choice, which I value greatly. Being present and balance doesn't mean or look the same for everyone. I admit, I hadn't reviewed the "digital free" policy since Tucson's visit, but I thought being on my silenced mobile device was digital free. (I'm from NYC) I was capturing a moment I wanted to remember...I'm a light packer by nature, but esp. after being on a 10lb weight limit for 6wks post op just lifted and traveling by myself, I needed to take it easy and do what's best for me. The irony of Miraval being the place and presence of "you don't know what the other person could be going through...." And to have an exchange with an employee, that put me back in my Catholic High School, childlike and also resembling rehab (as seen on TV) vs.a wellness resort & spa. It wasn't just money that got me there, but my body had to physical heal to make the trip and to have it go left by this kid (age and inexperience definitely played a factor) is devastating. I understand the decision of the policy b/c it's built for that inconsiderate person who will take the call and scream over the dinning room or the social media enthusiast yearning for likes, but some of us show up with already healthy/comfortable and considerate phone habits and/or maybe not ready for a cold turkey approach. (The trick is an Apple watch-I dont have one). For me personally, being present means no alcohol and no devices in my bedroom, but there was alcohol in the dinning room and 2 TVs in my guest room. I sure didn't request that they be removed. And on one occasion, I had to leave lunch earlier on the patio b/c of the group of 5 next to me screaming chit chatter being overly distracting and odious. However, no one said a word to them- I removed myself to find peace elsewhere. Who wants to spend the time complaining? That all said, much of the staff are really pleasant, friendly and eager to please-I didn't utter a word to mgmt as I refused to allow the exchanged to take precedency over my physical stay. To be fair, two moms I spoke with rather liked the "digital free" policy- that's so their kids and husbands aren't able to reach them, but I'm a single millennial, childfree, instagram free business owner. My time is my mine own and no one to hide from. Maybe include us when considering policies. Oh the experience planning office had to reach me during my stay and they left a msg on my voicemail....…
