Tops with golfers, tennis buffs and meeting groups looking for a getaway.
Residing in the quiet community of Lakeway, northwest of Austin, this limestone and brick resort is popular for two reasons: extensive conference facilities and proximity to Texas Hill Country. It is decorated in a modern regional theme, complete with antler chandeliers hanging in the lobby. Most of the 168 guest rooms and five condos are appointed with muted beige, brown and orange tones, and are equipped with voice mail, Wi-Fi and satellite television with HBO. Views of the hills and Lake Travis can be enjoyed from many of the accommodations, as well as from Travis Restaurant. There is a full-service marina adjacent to the resort, which offers private charter yachts, sunset cruises and ski and bass boats, as well as most of the equipment you'll need for whatever kind of outing you choose. Resort staff can help arrange tee times on five championship courses, lessons at The Lakeway World of Tennis and treatments at the on-site spa, San Saba Spa. The resort's fitness center is open around the clock. Those planning on taking in Austin sights and nightlife just twenty miles away should keep in mind that the roads twist and turn, which means the drive actually takes about an hour.
