The Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa is one of Texas’ most iconic, luxurious properties. Located just 20 minutes west of downtown Austin, the recently renovated and expanded property is nestled within 4,000 wooded acres of picturesque rolling hills on the edge of Austin — surrounded by vineyards, nature preserves, hiking trails, and waterways. The 493-room resort curates an elevated experience of the Texas Hill Country where style, craftsmanship, and imagination come together in an experience as magnificent as Austin’s Hill Country. 

This summer, the resort is inviting guests to experience a new perspective. With its serene Mokara Spa, seven elevated dining concepts, three refreshing pools (including an adults-only infinity edge pool), and four championship golf courses, Omni Barton Creek is an idyllic escape for both adults and families alike.

For adults looking to book a romantic escape, Omni Barton Creek has a variety of amenities to keep couples engaged day and night in the seclusion of the Hill Country. During the day, you can rent a private and spacious cabana at one of the pools, while cooling off at the lively outdoor pool bar.

Or, relax at the full-service, 13,000-foot Mokara Spa that reflects a sanctuary inspired by nearby waterways, creeks, and springs, as well as includes three couples’ treatment rooms. Conclude your service at the adults-only, rooftop pool and garden. End your night with a taste of the Austin Hill Country at one of the property’s seven culinary concepts, including Blind Salamander.

The Omni Barton Creek isn’t just for lovers. This summer, families are invited to form new connections at the resort through its myriad of family recreation offerings. The property offers guided hikes, indoor/outdoor “glamping” experiences, succulent garden creation, lessons on its 10 tennis courts and golf courses, s’mores creation at cozy firepits, miniature golf, and more. Kids will leave with a newfound appreciation for nature and memories that will last a lifetime. The resort can also arrange for other off-property experiences taking advantage of all that Austin offers.

The hill country enclave is hosting a series of Summer Soiree events to celebrate the season properly. From nature hikes to fireside s’mores and an extravagant sendoff to summer complete with croquet, the festivities are expertly curated for memorable experiences.
