They’ll have you feeling rejuvenated and renewed in no time.
On the shore of Lake Travis, the Spa at Lakeway Resort boasts a spa terrace with stunning views of the Texas Hill Country and treatments that use locally grown ingredients, such as lavender and grapefruit.

At Spa Django, you can customize your spa experience with packages that mix music and nature into rejuvenation. There are 18 treatment rooms plus hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas and an adults-only pool, creating a tranquil place to relax. The spa’s use of music, nature, art and movement combine to produce a sense of awakening, and it offers massages, body rituals, facials and nail services. Try the Django Massage, which incorporates Swedish massage techniques, or the Texas Two-Step Foot Massage, which includes an exfoliating salt scrub and heated wrap plus an invigorating foot massage.
Taking inspiration from the surrounding creeks, springs and waterways, Mokara Spa’s 13,000sqft (1,208sqm) facility focuses on massages, facials, body scrubs and salon services, including manicures, waxing and hair. It also offers various packages, combining massages with facials, manicures, lunch and other luxurious services. Relax before and after your treatment at the rooftop pool or in the men’s and women’s relaxation lounges, steam rooms, whirlpools and dry saunas. Try an herbal massage, which uses herbs and oils for balance, rest, renewal or detoxing.
Taking inspiration from the healing traditions of Latin American curanderos (traditional native healers), Lantana Spa uses natural elements to relax and rejuvenate. Upon arrival, you’ll receive a red ribbon for the spa’s Seven Knots Ritual that releases stress and worries. Traditionally, curanderos would tie seven knots in the ribbon, one for each worry, with the last one creating a circle, and at the end of your spa experience, you can leave your ribbon (and stress) behind. Enjoy body scrubs with seasonal ingredients, massages, facials, hand treatments, manicures, pedicures and a steam room. The soon-to-open spa restaurant will have organic options plus smoothies and other healthy meals.
Sitting at one of the highest points in San Antonio, Loma de Vida Spa and Wellness offers sweeping views of the Texas Hill Country. Traditional spa offerings, such as massages and facials, are available, as are signature experiences only available here. Escape with a Himalayan Salt Stone Mineral Massage, or relieve achy muscles and joints with the Restorative Sports Massage. Quenche, the spa’s eatery, has health-conscious choices, such as green juices, açai bowls and salads, and the fun stuff – bubbly, white and red wines, beer and spirits.
