Austin, TX is the perfect destination for you and your girls to let off some steam for a weekend. The city is home to fine dining, authentic Texas eateries, amazing luxury, all-inclusive hotels with an emphasis on wellness, and a never-ending list of things to do.
Lake Austin Spa Resort
Voted the Top Destination Spa in the U.S. by Condé Nast Traveler, Lake Austin Spa Resort is an all-inclusive, luxury getaway in the outskirts of Austin. The resort is situated on Lake Austin and is surrounded by hills and forests which provides a quiet respite, the perfect backdrop for a girls’ getaway! Consider this gem an “adults-only, self-care summer camp”.
You and your girls can enjoy your charming suite, get star treatment at the spa, explore the grounds, take a kayak out on the lake, take a cooking class, and sip wine over the three meals that will be included with your stay - the sky’s the limit during your stay at Lake Austin!
At the LakeHouse Spa, melt into true relaxation during a massage or facial, book advanced skincare and body treatments, and participate in water-based wellness activities like floating meditation and aquatic massage. They’ll even make special arrangements for groups! The spa also offers a variety of packages, like Texas Starry Night, For The Love Of Water, and Half Day Away.
Lake Austin’s accommodations offer a “casual elegance”: perfectly blending the approachability of southern hospitality and charm with the high class elegance of luxury. Their Premier Hot Tub Cottage and Signature Suite would be perfect for your girls’ getaway; you’ll have plenty of indoor and outdoor space for hanging out, custom furniture, a fireplace, a private patio, and lush bedding and bath products for a mini spa experience in your room.
Situated in the Balcones Canyon Preserve, with views spanning over 280 acres in each direction, Miraval Austin is a true wellness getaway with a special emphasis on nature and mindfulness.
The beauty of Austin’s hill country combined with Miraval’s peaceful and luxurious spaces is the perfect combination for you and your girls to reach maximum rejuvenation on a weekend vacation.
The accommodations at Miraval are described as “simple and serene,” with light, contemporary touches, tons of natural light, and stunning views of the canyon outside your windows. Miraval’s roomy suites are the perfect size for your group as its apartment-style living with private studios, custom bedding, in-room meditation channels, a mini fridge, filtered water, and even Himalayan singing bowls for that extra touch of mindfulness.
The main attraction at Miraval is the Life In Balance Spa: a one-of-a-kind mindfulness-focused wellness spa that offers lush services such as body renewal rituals, ancient Ayurveda practices, acupuncture, Thai massage, and Crystal Energy Work. Life In Balance utilizes ancient Eastern meditation and breathing practices in their numerous massage and facial options, and they even offer crowd favorites like mani/pedis, hair treatments, and even special treatments for mothers-to-be!
To enhance your experience at Miraval, the spa professionals implement a Digital Mindfulness philosophy in which guests are highly encouraged to use personal devices in the privacy of their rooms and avoid bringing the noise of the outside world into their serene spa areas. You’ll also notice that when you book, you’ll be prompted to “set your intention” through Miraval’s Intention Inspiration Quiz, which will set you and your girls up for success at this weekend retreat.
When you have energy you need to burn, fun indoor and outdoor activities are around every corner on Miraval’s grounds. Take a yoga class, participate in a ropes course, go stand-up paddleboarding, go hiking, kayaking, explore the farms, and visit the horse stables.
Miraval is big on all-inclusive packages because they want to take the guesswork out of their guests’ stay!

Fun Things To Do In Austin

Texas’s Only Alpine Coaster
For the thrillseekers in your group, scope out that adrenaline rush at Cliff Carver, the very first Alpine coaster in the state of Texas! This mile-long, gravity-propelled sled coasts down the side of a small mountain that offers breathtaking views of the Austin area. The sled only goes a maximum of 25 mph so even your most timid friend can muster the courage to give it a go! Plus, the brakes allow the riders (maximum of 2 per sled) to go at their own pace.
It costs $20 per person or $35 for a pair and you can reserve your sled time online. Getting
