Travaasa Austin in Austin, Texas

Travaasa Austin may be only 30 minutes from the capital, but in Hill Country it's a different world completely. Come to Travaasa – which derives its name from travel and pravaasa, the Sanskrit word for "memorable journey" – for self-discovery and for meaningful, authentic experiences with Texans who want to share their beloved countryside. Come to feel the wind in your hair while hiking through a field of bluebells, to become one with your breath in a grove of anacua trees, and to Texas Two-Step under the stars.

Heal your soul with the spa's essential oils and plant-based treatments. Dig into a plate of French toast made from agave-sweetened polenta and cabernet cranberries. As the sun bakes the rugged hills, take a hike with an ecologist through shaded trails to Lake Travis, learning about the area's flora and fauna. Strike up a bond with a Palomino filly, taking her for a gentle ride as chickens scurry through the fields of the organic farm. Cuddle up by the fire pit with a bottle of wine.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 days ago

From the very first phone call to make our reservation, it seemed unorganized and strange. During my first call, I simply stated that I wanted to make a reservation. I was told that she was not allowed to actually make the reservation, but that someone would call me in a day or two to handle it. Okayyyy. Then when they did, I wasn't given a confirmation number or anything. They seemed to just go by whatever name you give them. If that works, cool. Just never had it handled like that before. Overall, after our stay, I would say that it seems like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. We were there for an overnight stay, so I headed out to check in before my husband would be joining me a few hours after. Upon check in, I asked just to confirm, really, if there was a fridge in the room as I had some expensive cheeses and a couple other small items to go with our wine that needed to be refrigerated. She said no, they didn't have fridges in the room but that they could put in a request to have someone *maybe* bring us one. What in the hell? This is the year 2017. It was explained to me by a horrified 20-something employee in a condescending tone and a look of concern that I didn't already know that they are "a green property." Okay, take it easy. Her co-worker looked over at the screen and confirmed that our room actually did have one, so that worked out, BUT, I do have to on Earth can you not have a fridge in a hotel room? Every hotel room has one. So after completing check-in, I then asked where the luggage carts were so I could unload my things. I'm informed that they do not use carts on the property because again, they are a "green property". But said that one of the guys could load up the golf cart with my stuff to take to my room. I tried not to laugh right then and there. How does offering a wheeled cart for your guests make you environmentally unfriendly? After that, I was shown on the map where our room was (in the furthest building away---of course it was) and informed that there is no parking right next to it, so after several treks to my car in the heat, I finally got everything unloaded and set up for our stay. I wasn't in the mood for small talk with the golf cart guy, so yes, I just did it myself, but was put off that they don't seem to care or comprehend that they are inconveniencing their guests by not having carts. I mean, discount hotels have a damn cart, for crying outloud. Look, I totally get and fully understand that Travaasa is a place that appeals to the outdoor enthusiast and encourages outdoor activities, walking and hiking to every single part of their property, zen atmosphere, holistic yadda yadda yadda, but for those people who are there to just chill the hell out and enjoy what you'd normally enjoy at a luxury resort, this is NOT the place for you. Early in the evening I got a knock on the door and some lady (I assumed she was part of the housekeeping staff, although she didn't say a word) just sort of handed me a baggie of popcorn for no apparent reason and then walked off. Umm, okay. Weirdest thing ever. And there are also no peepholes on the room doors. Yes, I opened it, but I can see how that's not the safest thing. Then around 9 the next morning, some guy (again, didn't identify himself), knocked on the door. We opened it, and he backed away, apologizing profusely several times and disappeared. For what, we still have no idea. I assumed later he was there to maybe clean the room, but again, weird and AWKWARD. These people need extensive training on how to interact with guests with WORDS. At breakfast the next morning, I was expecting nothing but vegetarian, gluten free food that tasted like cardboard, but was actually pleasantly surprised that they had eggs and bacon (We are Texas and Louisiana born people who enjoy our comfort food). I know, again, we are obviously NOT their target market, haha :) Not much of it here, but it was nice that we were able to have breakfast before heading back home. We were served water that was not even cool, so when I nicely asked our server if we could please have some ice, she made a face like she was confused, said yes, then took our glasses and turned directly around to the bartender standing right there and said (where we could hear) "UMM, THEY WANT ICE IN THEIR WATER??" like we were freaks or something. The bartender even looked surprised or put off that we would want ice. Y'all. This is Texas. It's hot. I guess I just don't get the vibe of everything there. I just don't see why they make it to where everything seemed to be a struggle just to have what most people consider normal amenities at every hotel on this planet. That's the complete opposite of rest and relaxation, but what do I know? If you're the type of person who simply adores NO frills, NO luxury, NO convenience in moving around your resort, minimal amenities, inadequate lighting in rooms, way overpriced mediocre food and spa services, and pretentious hipsters (by the look of the parking lot chock full of luxury douchey cars) this is the PERFECT place for you. We won't be back, but we made the most of it and just laughed at the absurdity of it all...not a complete loss, just a place we won't recommend or visit again. Sorry, Travaasa, y'all need to get over yourselves...and get fridges in all those rooms.

This was one of the greatest resorts I've been to! Everything we needed was right there, from Spa, Food, Adventure... I was awesome! It felt like we were miles away from everything, but we were only a few minutes away from all the downtown action, IF we chose to ever leave! We'll definitely be back!

This is a well overdue review. Wife and I needed a relaxing weekend getaway sans children! We didn't want to travel far and settled on trying Travaasa Austin. Staff members were very welcoming and friendly. Immediately upon arrival, the stress and tension began to melt away. The grounds were well kept. The rooms/beds were comfortable. We spent more time outdoors so the rooms were more for rest and sleep. The pool was super relaxing and cocktails were well made; don't expect strong cocktails, though. I liked how the alcohol was controlled because the last thing we wanted was to be surrounded by uncontrolled drunkness on this retreat. The food at the restaurant was on point! Local organic produce were used to create masterpieces. Several reviews mentioned small portion sizes...I'm not sure what constitutes a "small portion" but my wife and I were full with left overs to spare. This experiential resort had a variety of activities for us to try. The obstacle course was so much fun! Admittedly, I should have taken a xanax beforehand since I have a little thing for heights; nonetheless, we had a great sense of accomplishment once we finished. The spa experience was awesome! Facility was clean and the therapists were very professional. I recommend arriving early for a spa treatment so you can take advantage of the sauna. The experience was so tranquil and relaxing that I completely detached from the stresses in life and for a moment forgot where I was. Overall, this was a very good choice and I will definitely be returning. If you plan on taking advantage of the spa, then the all inclusive option is the way to go!

I was there with two college roommates for a girls trip around central TX, I wish we had more time. The pool and its back drop are amazing, you can't help but to feel relaxed. The rooms were spacious, had nice quaint balconies and very relaxing ambience. I can not wait to go back and experience more.

We chose Travaasa over a grief retreat, so our expectations were a little different than most. My Son and I went expecting some quiet time to reflect in comfortable surroundings. We got that and so much more. The staff was engaging, we had some fun everyday, and still plenty of time for Yoga, meditation, hiking and healing. They have a huge variety of things to do, a beautiful setting and fabulous, thoughtful food. We felt welcomed and cared for every day of our stay. Don't miss the Equine Encounter, whatever your state of mind. We had incredible views from the room, from the pool, and from the dinner table. Not a bad place to look for peace.
