Whether you are a couple planning a romantic Texas getaway or a busy executive in need of a zen experience, shoot for the Lone Star State’s Texas Hill Country. La Cantera Resort and Spa offers breathtaking romance at the world famous King Ranch. About two hours northwest of Austin, Texas, Tres Lunas Resort provides rejuvenation for the weary.
Heritage and History at La Cantera
Step across the threshold of Texas history at La Cantera. Within is Henrietta Market, named in honor of Henrietta King, a cattle baroness who continued the King Ranch legacy forty years after the death of her husband, Richard, in 1885. The resort also remembers the Alamo with the Esparza Lawn, named after Gregorio Esparza, the only Alamo defender allowed to have a traditional burial. His brother, Enrique, fighting with the Mexican Army, asked his commanders to allow him to give his brother a proper burial and they conceded. You may be familiar with the song “Yellow Rose of Texas” but unfamiliar with the song’s muse, Emily Rose. She was a slave that Santa Anna fell in love with. The resort’s Emily Rose Court is named in her honor.
Most Romantic Amenities: Immerse yourself in the romance of multiple hot tubs and pools. Private cabanas are also available poolside for your very own space. Schedule a couple’s massage or stroll hand-in-hand over miles of trails.
Inspired Elevated Dining: The resort offers nine dining options but the best choice for dinner romance is to enjoy the balcony vista from your room. An elevated view of the Texas Hill Country is the perfect setting for a dinner for two. Afterward, enjoy the resort’s signature sweets. Cantera Tortugas are crafted of Texas pecans and dried peaches from nearby Fredericksburg. They are coated in caramel and honey, then dipped in chocolate.
Nearby Excitement: The allure of the San Antonio Riverwalk will draw you in after the sun sets. A shuttle ride makes it easy to enjoy the glitz and glamour of the Paseo del Rio of San Antonio.
Signature Spa: Loma de Vida Spa and Wellness center is the perfect sanctuary for couples. Elegant surroundings nestled in a natural setting are the perfect combination for a relaxing massage or other soothing services that you can enjoy together.
The Meditative Experience
At Tres Lunas
Get away to a Texas ranch where hosts say, “Namaste” as often as they say, “Howdy”. Keep your boots on for hiking meandering trails throughout more than 100 acres then kick them off and go barefoot at The Stone Chapel.
Just Say “OM”: Yoga retreat packages give stressed-out guests the full Zen experience. Meals detox your body. Lavender scented linens promote relaxation. Morning yoga sets the tone for the day and evening yoga ensures a restful night. Massages nurture and soothe. Hikes strengthen the body and connect you with the soothing effects of nature. For those sorely taxed by the cruel working world, healing sessions of hypnosis, spiritual baths and other alternatives help restore you.
Star Power: Leave the city behind and discover how amazingly bright the night sky shines. Stargaze through the lens of Tres Lunas’ high-powered telescope. Or, if you prefer privacy to contemplate the smallness of our place in the Universe, grab a pair of binoculars and find a cozy, solitary spot along one of the trails.
Dining Done Right: Awaken to the aromas of venison sausage sizzling on the grill and robust French coffee percolating. Sink your teeth into a signature sourdough biscuit that is really century old history, crafted from starter dough that originated 100 years ago. The kitchen lays out a Texas style spread every morning and, if you prefer, you may enjoy your morning repast by the infinity pool for a meditative start to your day.
Venturing Out: You can opt for dinner at the resort or venture out for local fare. The Texas Hill Country is home to more than two dozen vineyards and wineries. Award-winning wineries are right next door. Whether you crave barbecue or seafood, culinary delights are only minutes away.
Ready and Waiting: Tres Lunas is ready and waiting for the arrival of executives who live life in the fast lane throughout the week. They are prepared for you to come barreling up the drive, skidding sideways into your parking space. Your hosts at Tres Lunas know what it takes to help you transition from high gear to a gentle cruise.
