Opened in late 2018 on a 220-acre nature preserve in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, close to Lake Travis, Miraval Austin (the sister property to the iconic Miraval Arizona destination spa) shares the hallmarks of the flagship: a wide range of activities, delicious and plentiful food, and the liberating notion that everything is optional. The landscape surrounding the retreat is forested with cedars and red oaks, providing a serene sense of seclusion in nature.
Rate: from $1,500 per person, for three-nights’ accommodations (double-occupancy), excluding taxes, fees and gratuity. Room rates are subject to change based on your travel dates, availability and room category choice.

About This Property:
The Miraval Austin’s 117 rooms and suites are set in two-story cottages with a modern aesthetic. Public spaces, including the Yoga Barn, the Body Mindfulness fitness center, and the 20,000-square-foot spa, are gorgeous, with soaring 30-foot ceilings and plenty of natural light (all of these spaces have been modified to allow for smaller occupancy rates and all necessary social distancing practices; most programs must now be reserved in advance and sanitization procedures are followed for all used equipment). Like its Tucson sister property, Miraval Austin offers a wide range of activities, about 30 or so a day. Activities range from the usual mindfulness and fitness selections (yoga, meditation, spin class) to more playful choices like Texas line dancing or cardio drumming. Just down the hill from the main area is a lovely ten-acre farm, with horses, chickens and bee colonies, that supplies the dining room with fresh eggs, produce, herbs and honey. A farm tour is a must and you can even sign up to be a beekeeper for a day. Spa services are extensive and include more esoteric options like Ayurvedic massages, while kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding on nearby Lake Travis are also available.
Meals are taken in the main dining room, which has a 30-foot ceiling, a wood-burning fireplace, and a large terrace with a very pretty view of the surrounding hills and the lake below. There is also a snack bar called The Nest, where you can get kale smoothies, artisanal teas and coffee, and snacks like herbed popcorn or lettuce wraps with sriracha chicken. Unlike some destination spas, Miraval embraces wine; indeed, Indagare highly recommends the wine-tasting classes led by the food and beverage manager and sommelier. In addition, there are daily specials that manage to feel decadent in spite of maintaining low calorie counts—and hospitality is where Miraval shines: the team is extremely warm and friendly and everyone makes an effort to connect with guests.
