Get Lost In The Pines: The Perfect Austin Staycation

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the ever-present hectic world in which we live, the need for the periodic stress-free “getaway from the every day” is even more important now than ever. The chance to decompress from the frustrations of the work week, clear the mind and recharge the proverbial batteries. The perfect way to do so is with the recently tabbed travel term of the “staycation,” a vacation one is able to take within close proximity to home.

No better destination for the staycation for Central Texans and Austinites than at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa out in Bastrop, located a mere 30 minutes from downtown Austin and a stone’s throw from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Hyatt Lost Pines is the true essence of getting away, offering the feeling that you’re in a completely different world, miles away from the hustle and bustle, when, in reality, you’re only 25 miles from the heart of Congress Avenue in the Capital City. With 491 spacious rooms, many with scenic patios and balconies, the sprawling 405-acre property is situated among a gorgeous natural setting, backing up to the Colorado River within the Lost Pines natural region of Central Texas.

The luxury resort maintains the spirit of the Lone Star State with appropriate and unique Texan artwork and fixtures throughout, ensuring guests know exactly where they are – in the greatest state in the land. Not only that, but Hyatt Lost Pines has more to offer than I could have ever imagined prior to my initial stay: the aforementioned spacious rooms, many with spectacular views, a wealth of great on-site dining and drinking locations, nightly entertainment and a live music venue, a massive pool and beach area with a lazy river for kids of all ages, Spa Django for those who seek pampering, Renegade Equestrian Center with horseback riding, nature trails along the Colorado River, tennis courts, plenty of children’s activities and for those of us who seek punishment while chasing the little white ball around, the Wolfdancer Golf Club, adjacent to the hotel, offers an incredibly challenging links experience.

So, for those of you here in the Austin area who find yourselves taxed with a great deal of stress, need a change of scenery and a quick getaway to a location that offers just about everything you could ever want from a resort, Hyatt Lost Pines in Bastrop is calling your name! Get on out and experience the perfect “staycation.” Enjoy, my friends!
