Located in Austin, Texas, Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is a lavish resort in the countryside of Austin. The 4,000-acre resort features four golf courses, a recently-renovated, upscale spa and more than 300 guestrooms. Guestrooms display a Southwestern decor with neutral tones and an occasional cow-print accent. Plush robes, carved armoires and video games are standard in the rooms. Suites offer additional bedrooms, sitting and dining areas and more upscale amenities, like DVD players. Dining options are available all over the property, from the green to the spa. The Rock House is a restaurant that overlooks Fazio Canyons golf course. Hill Country Dining Room is an upscale dining experience with live piano music. 8212 Wine Bar & Grill offers a more modern, chic experience with Mexican-American cuisine and seafood delicacies.
Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa has family-friendly activities that will please everyone. A Nature Trail has a self-guided tour of the flora and fauna in Texas Hill Country. Leave the golfing to the big guys and play miniature golf on their 18-hole course. Two swimming pools are at the resort — one outdoor and one indoor. A scavenger hunt is run by the staff and geocatching tours let families search for treasure with GPS devices. A Kids Club is open to kids as young as 6 months. Games, crafts, story times and computer games are provided. Camp Barton splits kids into appropriate age groups (including ‘tweens) of five children to a counselor. Daily activities are run, such as science projects, cooking contests, animal-themed games and explorers excursions. Camps run for a week at a time throughout the summer months.
