I truly wish I could have stayed here for the entire weekend - the staff, the decor and the surroundings were all beautiful. I loved walking around in my robe from my treatments to the relaxation room, out by the pool for a little sunshine and then to the patio for lunch. Speaking of lunch, it was so light and delicious (and completed by a sorbet dessert by the pool - heavenly). It was a very relaxing stay!
The only reason I did not rank my experience five stars is because I felt my maternity massage was a little bit lacking. The room had the look of a bathroom with cold tile everywhere (far from setting a relaxing ambiance) - I think this must be the room where they typically provide the water massages and I was surprised at how different it was from all of the other beautiful and relaxing spots in the spa. Also, the best side prenatal massage I ever received elsewhere was when I was enveloped by a full down body pillow - this wasn't provided here and it wasn't as comfortable just laying on my side with a pillow between my legs. The facial, however, took place in a nicer room (I got the lavender treatment, which was wonderfully relaxing).
I'd recommend this place to anyone in the Austin area, for sure! Just wish there was a little more detail given to the maternity massage.
