**I received a compensated night and a free spa service in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.**
I packed the kids into the car and headed off on a grey day to the Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa. Spring Break was shaping up to be rainy and dreary so an escape to the lap of luxury was called for. A quick two and a half hours later, we drove up into the hill country of Austin, TX and forgot about the weather. A sprawling estate where the resort, the spa, the world class golf course and more awaited our undivided relaxation time! We entered and parked near the entrance and walked in. We were early for check in so I took the girls directly to the spa where they had some pretty important appointments to keep!
Once we were there I understood completely the incredible special event this was for my girls. They have had their nails painted before but have never had a 5 star spa experience! They soaked it up and I may have created monsters!
As I was served champagne, I was not driving anymore after all and was on vacation too!, the girls enjoyed having their nails cut and buffed, arm massages and conversation with the ladies that was focused only on them. I sat back and watched them soak it up! When the nails were done, it was time for a fantastic swanky lunch all would enjoy! With white tablecloths and a view of the beautiful Austin scenery, they lived the good life. After that, it was Princess Pedicures complete with foot massages all around.
When they were done, already best friends with the ladies, I checked us into the very spacious room that included a balcony! Overlooking the hills, the girls enjoyed the view of the town mommy grew up in.
It was time to explore the Omni Resort after that. We found free Putt-Putt golf, the fill gym, the heated indoor pool and more! The hallways were lined with shops and the resort was large enough that we really never had to leave!
The next day, it was my turn. Having received one of the Spring Break $35 on 35 specials, I had several hours of pampering ahead of my. A fill body massage, a full facial, a beautiful lunch in the elegant room and then my own nails and feet. It was a relaxing, wonderful day fit for a busy single mom who never seems to get time away for herself.
My parents came to see my kids while I was pampered but there is a kid’s center that I could have left them in while I enjoyed my day.
The amazingly beautiful resort that houses activities for little kids to big kids like me was amazing. We checked out feeling relaxed, happy and excited about planning another trip in the future!
Check out the Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa for your next getaway! Book some spa services and sink into luxury that we all need sometimes!
