Getaway: A Hill Country Resort and Spa

Getaway: Hill Country Resort and Spa. The mythology of the Great American Road Trip holds a sacred place in the family vacation pantheon and has been our favorite way to travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, but sometimes, if you’re a parent packing up the little ones for a multi-day drive, it doesn’t especially feel like a vacation. An easy jaunt is often the perfect solution for a family getaway or a girls/guy weekend away. Looking for your next stellar experience to relax and recharge?

Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, located on 300 acres is the perfect escape to a rustic, yet elegant retreat that feels a world away. It is one of the best weekend getaways that you can find, with an array of enjoyable activities and the staff offered authentic Texas hospitality and did a fantastic job of following CDC health guidelines which made us feel safe.

Although the resort is conveniently located next to SeaWorld and 20 minutes to San Antonio’s Riverwalk, it feels secluded and time spent on the private balcony offered some stunning views over the gardens and gold course.

The Year-round Fun at a Five-Acre Water Park can wear out even the most active member of your family. For cooler fall and winter days, the water park features heated pools, two lagoon-style waterfall jacuzzis, and an outdoor fire pit each night for s’mores. The resort’s water park features a 950-foot Ramblin’ River, a lazy river pool and a FlowRider wave simulation machine so you can surf, bodyboard or knee-board anytime of the year.

For a full nature immersion you can join early morning meetings with Ranger Sean, a naturalist and local wildlife expert at the Springhouse Sanctuary for an outdoor hike on the resort’s trails.

The pristine golf course is the perfect backdrop to a leisure walk or bike ride around the grounds or you can challenge yourself to play the 27-holes of golf. If you’re not a golfer, you can explore the rolling meadows and lush hillsides, wooded ravines and tranquil lakes and ponds during a self-guided sunrise jog.

Don’t miss out on capitalizing on more self-care by choosing from a plethora of spa treatments and unique massages at The Windflower Spa, located in a traditional central Texas farmhouse. The spa features 21 individual treatment rooms reminiscent of a welcoming, cozy, and upscale country home and also has its own private pool for you to enjoy.

Regardless of whether you are hunting for a tranquil family experience or searching for the perfect opportunity to round up your girlfriends for some much-needed pampering, mark a weekend on your calendar and prepare for a blissful experience at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa. I promise you will not be disappointed.
