Staycation - Lakeway Resort and Spa - Lakeside Resort in Austin's Lake Travis

Want to try a stay-cation right here in Austin.   The Lakeway Resort is 30 miles from downtown Austin.  It is a hotel on the Lake with a spa, great pools and amazing views of Lake Travis in Texas Hill Country.    We have been to the Oasis on Lake Travis for sunset but found the sunset was fantastic from the porch off the lobby bar here with less crowds.  You can sit in a rocking chair and watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

 


There actually 3 pools, a deep pool, a giant hot tub, an adult only pool with a swim up bar and a beach entry pool with water slides and sprayers (The water slides and sprayers are only open seasonally call before making reservations.)  When we went it was off season and they were not on by my kids still enjoyed the pool.   

Most importantly parents there is a Kid Zone that has an inflatable bouncy house, movies, games and toys like Ping Pong, Air Hockey and Pin Ball.    The kids zone is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am - 7pm.  But when it is open it offers a supervised play area so you can get away for those spa appointments or time in the adult only pool.   The price is included in the resort fee and you can drop your kids off during their hours as long as they are older than 2 years old.


For dinning options we ate Lake Travis Restaurant on site for dinner and breakfast.  We had lunch and drinks at the pool.  It was a great get away for a weekend and close by.


When out in the sun don't forget to protect your self and your kids.  WARNING – not all ‘sunscreens’ with ‘baby’ labeled on them are safe for your children!  See this blog on Baby Sunscreens blog for more info.
