Barton Creek Resort & Spa

Kids have lots of options at Omni Barton Creek Resort

From the Kids Club (six months to eight years) to Camp Barton (with customized activities geared toward various ages and skill levels), Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa will keep your offspring entertained. Swimming, nature trail hikes and miniature golf are just a few of the standard activities on offer, while fishing excursions and field trips offer new experiences for young guests. During the summer, weeks at the camp are themed — for example, Buggin' Out includes an excursion to the Austin Nature & Science Center, while Sports of All Sorts features a day at the Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex. Although this property has all of the expected kid-centric amenities, they have a hard time competing with the outdoor allure of this 4,000-acre Texas Hill Country resort. As for mom and dad, relaxation comes in many forms: unwind in the spa, play a round on the golf course or curl up with the kiddies for family movie night under the stars.
