← Back to ‘How to Choose the Best Places to Stay When Traveling’

There’s no place like Texas, and there’s certainly no vacation like a Texas vacation. From the rolling hills to the cowboy culture to the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, Texas is beautifully diverse. And with some of the finest, most luxurious resorts, what more could you need?

1. La Cantera Resort and Spa, San Antonio

Like a shining castle on a hill, La Cantera Resort and Spa sits up above the city of San Antonio, calling you to come and escape for a few days. The rustic, ranch-style resort combines classic Texan aspects with luxury hotel ambiance. Choose between seven different types of rooms. The seventh floor 21+ rooms offer stunning views of Texas hill country, complimentary valet, private check-in and concierge, poolside cabins, and champagne lounges. Villas sit just a short ride away from the main resort, offering free valet, private check-in, luxury bedding, a private pool and hot tub area, and a market. Luxury and Presidential Suites come with full-sized living rooms, kitchenettes, pool access, and in-room safes. The one bedroom and junior suites have views of the property or the pool, private sleeping space on the king-sized bed, a sofa and workspace in the living room, mini-fridge, and in-room safe. Deluxe rooms are the most simple of all with two queen-sized beds or a king bed — but the simplicity doesn’t cut away from the cozy luxury. Plus with all the amenities, including the pools, golf courses, fitness center, and running trails, you’ll be constantly entertained.

2. Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, San Antonio

Set in the rolling hills of the San Antonio area, Hyatt Regency Hill Country is glamour and comfort at a price you can afford. Check out the suites, each with a unique, country-style decor to make you feel right at home in the living room, kitchen, and bedrooms. If you don’t want a suite, not to worry. The standard rooms at the Hyatt are smaller, but not too small that you won’t enjoy all the best comforts, including private patios or balconies and one or two plush queen or king-sized beds. Not forgetting the full bathroom with a sleek, modern shower and cozy robes. Looking for things to do without leaving the resort? Relax at the Windflower – Hill Country Spa or spend a day on the golf course. Kids will love the five-acre water park, complete with wave machines, water slides, and the Ramblin’ River lazy river.
