American Airlines’ Celebrated Living, Fodor’s Travel and Condé Nast Traveler Bestow Top Honors on Lake Austin Spa Resort in 2014

AUSTIN, TX – Adding to its list of distinguished national achievements, Lake Austin Spa Resort is proud to announce being named the #1 US Spa in American Airlines’ Celebrated Living magazine’s 2014 Readers’ Choice Platinum List. Published quarterly, Celebrated Living reaches up to 3 million affluent readers and is the exclusive magazine for the airline’s premium class passengers. Fodor’s Travel also named Lake Austin Spa Resort as one of the Top Six Fitness & Wellness Resorts for 2014 and the property scored a #3 placement on the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Poll in the Top 10 Destination Spas list for 2014.

In 2013, the property was named to the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler’s Platinum Circle as the only destination spa in the country and the world with this distinction. In 2014, they removed spas from this category but the resort’s score remains high among their readers.

Purchased in 1997 by current co-owners Mike McAdams and Billy Rucks, the 40-room Lake Austin Spa Resort continues to innovate with newly renovated guest rooms, a refreshed treatment menu for 2014, star studded guest chefs featured in the weeklong Culinary Experience, seasonal and garden inspired menus from Executive Chef Stéphane Beaucamp, and a new meditation and mindfulness based program called BREATHE.

“We are so grateful to our guests for sharing their love of the spa with editors at these elite publications. Our guests are number one to us, that is why we try to provide the best spa experience within a beautiful tranquil setting, first class spa services, delicious healthy cuisine and fun, invigorating fitness programs,” says Mike McAdams, co-owner.
