Who doesn’t love a day at the spa? To me they are a rare treat, something to indulge in once in a blue moon, special occasions and the like. So of course when my best friend of 10 years came into town and said let’s go to Four Seasons Downtown Austin for your birthday, my answer was yes!
A couple of features drew us to choosing the Four Season’s over some other day spas. The first was location, it was nice to be downtown and not have to travel to Lakeway or Bastrop or some of the other locations, we could hop over to downtown and be finished and be home rather than having to travel out a bit further. Secondly…well, it’s the Four Seasons! I mean who wouldn’t want to take advantage of that!?
Upon arrival we were shown how to get to the spa area, it’s below the lobby, so we had to take an elevator down. When you first get there they show you around and go over the different packages. They show you to the dressing area where you have a locker, access to the facilities and a robe and slippers. The dressing area alone as a treat, showers with “rain” shower heads, vanity areas fully stocked, eucalyptus steam room, and more. Then we headed over to the workout room to sweat it up a bit, followed by a shower…the shower had fig shower gels and shampoo/conditioner…yeah!
Before our massage session we had lunch at Trio, it was a gorgeous day overlooking Town Lake, then hung out in the lounge area for a bit. I loved the lounge area, peaceful, stocked with goodies and relaxing. My masseuse came over to meet me and presented me with a menu, items I could add on for a few dollars here and there, along with my music selections. The massage (90 minutes) of course was heaven! Afterwards, we enjoyed some snacks and champagne in the lounge room before reluctantly getting dressed to go home.
Overall we spent about 6 hours being fully pampered! We got to take advantage of the workout room, lounge, snacks, outside areas near town lake, Trio Restaurant, dressing room, steam room and for a bit extra we could have enjoyed the pool area, we simply ran out of time.
I highly recommend the Four Seasons in Downtown Austin for your next day spay experience! http://www.fourseasons.com/austin/spa/treatment_packages/
