The Moody Gardens Hotel is at the heart of a sprawling property including a water park, pyramids housing an aquarium and a living rain forest, golf course and 3D theater. In addition to an indoor pool, the hotel has a lagoon pool featuring a swim-up bar, Jacuzzi, adults-only lounge and cabanas. The winding water is surrounded by palm trees and guests can grab poolside snacks and tropical drinks at Blossom’s on the pool deck. Guests can choose between a AAA Four Diamond steakhouse and a café designed as an indoor park for meals, and the lobby bar serves cocktails in an oasis of waterfalls, lush gardens and exotic fish.

Rooms are splashed with bright pastels, mirroring the outside botanical gardens. Spacious rooms have panoramic views of the pyramids and Galveston Bay, one king or two queen size beds and three telephones, including one in the bathroom. Suites stretch up to 900 feet with amenities like gulf view balconies, dual pull-out sofas, Jacuzzis for four and connecting parlors. All accommodations include complimentary Wi-Fi and mini fridges.

The Spa At Moody Gardens offers skin and nail treatments, hair and makeup, and a variety of massages. In the fitness center, guests can utilize a jogging track as well as a lap pool. Free self-parking and shuttle making visiting every corner of the 242-acre resort easy.
