Travaasa Austin: In the Heart of the Balcones Canyonland
Sure, Travaasa is a getaway for those looking for a little R&R, but a stay with us also includes opportunity for invigorating activities, blissful spa treatments, immersion in local culture, and mouthwatering signature dishes. We asked our very own Larry Callahan, Managing Director, one fact that people would be surprised to learn about Travaasa Austin, and what he feels makes our property unique.
“It is on a nature preserve – 210 acres of the Balcones Canyonland Preserve overlooking Lake Travis, and is also the nesting habitat for endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler and Black-capped Vireo.
The preserve offers a unique setting for guests staying in Austin that they can’t get at any other resort. The nature hikes and incredible bird watching opportunities are part of that.
Much of the programming allows guests to learn a new fun skill and also helps build those life skills. For example:
Harmonica Lessons – learn to play and also learn to do something more personal (think of dance lessons or piano lessons you may have taken while growing up)
Archery lessons - Learn how to shoot an arrow, but also learn the value of focus.
Texas Two Step – Learn how to dance, but also get the courage to get out on the dance floor after you leave the resort and go out on your own.
Challenge Course – It’s fun and a great workout, but is also a wonderful confidence booster.”
We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Texas Hill Country on your next escape!
