During spring break a few weeks ago, my family decided to go on a mid-week getaway at a secluded resort in Austin, Texas. Barton Creek Resorts was beautiful, surrounded by flourishing plants. Greenery pervaded the acreage as we had a front-view of the golf course from our window. This technology-free vacation was exactly what I needed to reconnect with my family and take my mind off of worldly stress. I left that back at home. There was a cute nature trail and mini-golf course right by the outdoor pool on the cliff overlooking the large bodies of water and surrounding mansions. The sight was breathtaking. I finally had my chance to eat out for almost every meal, trying new varieties like Vietnamese Pho and Japanese California rolls.
There was a serene “tranquility room” by the spa and gym area, which was essentially where they found a cave while constructing the resort. So they turned it into a room with glass windows facing the stalagmites and stalactites. With some creative vibrant lighting over the mineral formations, natural sounds and ethereal music, candles, chaise lounge chairs and a variety of teas, they were able to successfully create a meditation room of sorts. To end the night, I worked out at the gym, and came back to my suite for a hot bubble bath with a floral Lush bath bomb. I highly recommend a getaway once in a while.
