    Located along the Colorado River and less than 22 miles northwest of downtown Austin, the Lake Austin Spa Resort is one of the area's most luxurious resorts. And according to recent guests, this property is just as relaxing as it is opulent (and warrants the commute back and forth from the downtown area). The LakeHouse Spa offers a wide menu of treatments that are sure to help relax your body and mind, while resort activities like yoga, boating and hiking will entice you to get outside and get moving. And guest rooms offer the perfect amount of peace and quiet, boasting private porches, soaking tubs, fresh-cut flowers, complimentary Wi-Fi and Egyptian cotton linens. Lake Austin Spa Resort also receives high praise for its healthy (and yes, very tasty) cuisine. And while room rates are on the pricier side, this is an all-inclusive resort, so all meals, beverages and activities are included.

    Located about 22 miles northwest of downtown Austin, the Lakeway Resort and Spa caters more to R&R seekers than it does to tourists. This beautiful complex rests on the banks of Lake Travis in Texas Hill Country, leading to spectacular views for those of you practicing your swing on one of four 18-hole championship golf courses (including Flintrock Falls, a Jack Nicklaus-designed course). Lakeway also boasts a full-service spa, which offers a long menu of massages and skin treatments. And if you're looking to take to the tides, head to the Lakeway Marina for opportunities to sail and fish, or simply lounge by the property's pool. Recent guests highly recommend ending your day with dinner at the on-site eatery, Lake Travis Restaurant. And though they describe the grounds as stunning, previous visitors say that the guest rooms feel dated, despite their flat-screen TVs and private balconies. Some also warn against hidden resort fees, which can spark a serious case of sticker shock upon checkout.

    Located about 10 miles northwest of downtown Austin, the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa isn't the most practical choice for sightseers. But golfers will be delighted by this premier Texas golf destination; it features four golf courses in the heart of Texas Hill Country. After you work up an appetite on the driving range, treat yourself to a meal at one of the resort's eateries. And if you have kids in tow, plan on a day at the pool, on the surrounding hiking trails or on the mini-golf course. Recent guests love this Omni resort's quiet location and large guest rooms, which include plasma TVs, plush beds and granite countertops. However, recent guests do warn that the service staff isn't up to par and that guests should be wary of hidden fees that can be added to your bill.

    Stretching out along the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge about 18 miles northwest of Austin in the heart of Texas Hill Country, Travaasa Austin offers dramatic views and activities catered to both R&R- and thrill-seekers. Property standouts include group cooking demonstrations, Texas two-step dance classes and horseback riding lessons. Though most visitors describe the unrivaled outdoor experiences available at Travaasa Austin as a compelling reason to plan a future stay, travelers also insist that it's the gracious hotel staff that truly seals the deal. If all that activity makes you hungry, refuel with some nutritious farm-to-table cuisine at the on-site restaurant. Sample menu items include huevos rancheros for breakfast and short rib espagnole for dinner. If you're looking to take the relaxation up a notch, unwind with a revitalizing treatment, such as a clay and aloe wrap or a detoxifying sea salt and olive stone exfoliation, at the spa. Meanwhile, active types can participate in on-site Pilates and yoga classes. When nighttime rolls around, you'll retire to your rustic-yet-stylish accommodations outfitted with wooden furnishings, spacious balconies, coffee makers and walk-in showers.
