Rooms & Rates
Travaasa Austin is an adult-only retreat with a stunning location over 200 acres on Balcones Canyonland Preserve and oodles of free experiences to keep guests entertained. Just 30 minutes from downtown Austin, this laid-back resort opened in 2011 and has a unique no tipping policy.
Guests can choose from a schedule of daily activities, including archery, horse riding/grooming, culinary lessons, hiking and harmonica classes. Nightly fireside gatherings feature marshmallow toasting and guitar playing. There's also a Prickly Pear Challenge ropes course and a large infinity pool overlooking the valley.
The focus is on well-being here -- the menus at the two restaurants list the food’s nutritional information, and the sizable spa has a large fitness room (make sure you try out the mechanical bull and Texas two-step classes). At the three-acre working farm, guests can learn how to raise chickens and harvest seeds, or just get back to nature.
Travaasa’s comfortable, stylishly appointed guestrooms are located in seven lodges along meandering paths, allowing for privacy and a closer experience with nature. Standard rooms offer views of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve from an outdoor balcony or patio. Choose the Canyon View room for an even more expansive balcony that features the best views of the Texas Hill Country.
