Food

The menu at Lake Austin Spa Resort is intentionally and conscientiously healthy, although not calorie limited. Ingredients are selected with nutrition, flavor, and balance in mind, and sourced locally or grown in the resort’s organic gardens.

Pre-set nutrition designed for weight loss is not a feature of this FitStay. Guests make food choices based on individual preferences. Calorie information is printed directly on the menus to assist with informed choices. Guests can make special dietary requests, and the kitchen will do their best to accommodate.

Once a month, the property schedules Sunday Supper. This unique meal is hosted by local celebrity chefs and includes their own menus.

There is an extensive wine list available in the restaurants and through room service. Alcoholic beverages, including wine, always incur extra fees beyond the all-inclusive package price.

    Great resort but pricey

    "Luxury" is the keyword here, with its pros and cons. The resort is magnificent with great staff. It is a great place to sit back and relax and enjoy some time for yourself. The resort offers everything from half-day to multiple day stays and packages, so there is something for everyone. Chances are, you won't be able to go through all the activities available, there's just so much to do!

    The spa features are wonderful and highly recommended! Check with the front desk for special activities and one offs too if you don't want to miss out. Luxury at its best, this is the place to forget about the outside world for a little bit.

    On the downside, "luxury" has its own issues. The resort is pricey and cost can get high very fast (keep an eye out for extras and fees, they are not always insignificant). While that is fine on its own, it does disappoint to see something not super well kept, or dirty or staff not 100% on the ball when you think about what it is costing you. Something to keep in mind! -1 Star for cost
