Property Recognized in Elite Collection of Hotels, Resorts and Cruise Lines in Annual Gold List
AUSTIN, TX – Adding to its list of distinguished national achievements, Lake Austin Spa Resort is proud to announce being named to The Platinum Circle on Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List for 2013. Properties who have made the Gold List for the past five years are rewarded with Platinum Circle status for receiving consistently high marks from the annual readers’ survey. The 40-room resort is the only destination spa in the United States and in the World to secure a placement on this esteemed list.
More travelers than ever participated in the Readers’ Choice survey this year, close to 47,000 according to the magazine. Every year the Gold List identifies the “gold standard” of hotels, resorts and cruise lines in the United States and around the world and is featured in the January issue as well as online.

Purchased in 1997 by current co-owners Mike McAdams and Billy Rucks, Lake Austin Spa Resort continues to innovate with a refreshed treatment menu for 2013, star studded guest chefs featured in the weeklong Culinary Experience, seasonal and garden inspired menus from the new Executive Chef Stéphane Beaucamp, refinements to guest facilities and a summer water program called Quench. In 2013, the property will celebrate the 20-year anniversary of The Gathering of Wise Women — a month long program dedicated to women’s health and empowerment.
“We are so proud to be inducted into The Platinum Circle by Condé Nast Traveler and grateful to our guests for consistently sharing their experiences with the magazine. 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.
The lakefront 40-room resort has been earning national acclaim over the last fifteen years since the current owners purchased the property. When the 25,000-square foot LakeHouse Spa was completed in 2004, it quickly became a Condé Nast Traveler’s readers’ favorite and has continued to score high marks from readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine ever since.
