Austin Resort Named #1 Destination Spa in North America

Posted by Crystal Olenbush on Tuesday, July 8th, 2008 at 8:23pm.

Austin is the proud home of the Lake Austin Spa Resort, which was recently ranked as the number one destination spa in all of North America.  The special designation was awarded to the spa based on the results of a reader’s poll in the Conde Nast Traveler.  Of course, the fact that the people chose the resort as the number one destination spa makes the recognition even more special.

Conde Nast readers aren’t the only ones that adore the spa resort.  In fact, it also received recognition as one of the best vacation spas in Allure last month. 

The resort has earned this recognition for many reasons.  In part, it is due to the simple charm and elegance of the buildings as well as the antique fixtures and décor found throughout the resort.  The spa also offers a variety of activities, including cardio, pilates, yoga, and meditation.  If it weren’t for the beautiful Lake Austin upon which it sits, however, the spa wouldn’t be able to provide its guests with the same level of peace and relaxation.

Luckily, you don’t have to stay at a spa in order to enjoy what Lake Austin has to offer.  In fact, there are a variety of activities you can enjoy at Lake Austin on your own.  One of the most popular activities on Lake Austin is boating, which is made even more enjoyable by the high cliffs surrounding the lake provide excellent shelter from the wind. 

Fishing is also a popular activity on Lake Austin.  Some of the fish that are waiting to be caught in the lake include catfish, sunfish, and largemouth bass.  Or, you might simply want to get closer to nature by taking a peaceful hike through the area surrounding the lake.  Whether you stay at the Lake Austin Spa Resort or you purchase a home near Lake Austin, you will certainly enjoy all the lake has to offer!
