One of the fun aspects of being a Spa Director is researching new products and developing new treatments. I look at diversity and uniqueness when I am investigating product companies to find the best suited to our present offerings. Our refreshed menu features seven new treatments which draw inspiration from the Earth as well as from ancient and modern therapeutic techniques. Wooden hammers, Plant Stem Cell Serum and 58 hydrotherapy jets are just a few of the highlights that you can benefit from at Lake Austin Spa Resort. Now is the time to make a promise to yourself to have a massage or treatment once a month, once every few months or once every six months. You will always have something to look forward to and it will aid in keeping you balanced.

EARTHLY INSPIRATION

Stress is relieved and a true sense of well-being is restored. 50 minutes $165 / 80 minutes $215

DEEPLY RELAXING
