Barton Creek Getaway

Looking for a weekend (or longer!) escape that’s not too far from home? The Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is a Texas Hill Country oasis for anyone looking to relax and unwind. Located just outside of Austin on the west side, it’s only about a three hour drive from The Woodlands.

Barton Creek is well known as a golfer’s paradise, with four courses on the property, and has bragging rights as the number one golf resort in Texas. Each unique course, designed by pros Ben Crenshaw, Arnold Palmer and Tom Fazio, have beautiful views of the Hill Country, tall trees, challenging fairways and even picturesque glimpses of Lake Travis.

Three Springs Spa offers holistic treatments including massage, skin therapies and guided meditation sessions. The luxurious environment can take you to a new level of relaxation as you de-stress with spa packages designed just for you. An onsite salon offers nail and hair services to get you ready for a night out after your day of relaxation.

While the adults unwind, the kids can play at Barton Creek’s Kids Club open to all guests daily. Special activities, games and interactive fun await children from 6 months to 8 years old. Reservations are required, so call ahead. Summer Camp is also an option from now until August 11 through KECamps. Kids will enjoy tennis and golf along with super science projects, arts and crafts, martial arts lessons and swimming.

Austin is known for its music scene and that tradition is continued here with Barton’s Unplugged and Barton Creek Live. Relax and unwind with a cocktail in Barton’s Lounge while enjoying live acoustic performances every Friday and Saturday evening. Full bands perform at the Pavilion for the summer music series, Barton Creek Live which is only open to resort guests.
