Agenda? What Agenda?

Tracy York, General Manager - 21st November 2012

Today I had the pleasure of speaking with a guest about her stay.  As I do most days, I talk to guests about how their stay is going, if they need or want anything that will make them more comfortable or their stay more enjoyable and what their plans are for the remainder of the day.  Today a guest stopped me in my tracks with her response.  After telling me her stay was going great, she was really enjoying herself and there was nothing I could do to make her more comfortable, I asked her what was on her agenda the rest of the day.  She looked at me with a puzzled expression and responded, “agenda, what agenda?  When I visit Lake Austin Spa Resort, there is no agenda.  I enjoy time to do whatever I want to do”.  She is EXACTLY correct!  The joy of a spa vacation is that you can do as much or as little as you like and only YOU can make that decision.  No kids pulling you one direction while your job pulls you another – time accountable only to yourself.  Now that is a vacation!

As the holiday season approaches, and our normally busy daily life becomes more frantic and hectic, I encourage you to take deep breath, notice the beauty around you, hug the people you love and look at your schedule and say, “agenda, what agenda?”.

Slow down and enjoy the holidays!
