I am incredibly lucky to live super close to one of my favorite hotels in the country…the JW Marriott San Antonio and I’m blessed that I have actually gotten to stay there on multiple occasions for a little staycation. Every time I’m going there I get super excited on the drive. It’s pretty much right up the road but as you head up TPC Parkway in San Antonio I always start to feel a little giddy. And then, all of a sudden, the resort just towers out of the surrounding hill country. It still mesmerizes me every time! (Photo courtesy of JW Marriott San Antonio) The resort has pretty much everything you could possibly ask for including luxurious rooms, excellent dining experiences, amazing pools (even water slides and a lazy river), a PGA Tour golf course, and so much more. But of all of these fantastic offerings I always head straight to their INCREDIBLE – Lantana Spa. (Photo courtesy of JW Marriott San Antonio) Their Lantana Spa is seriously a haven and I’ve never experienced a spa like it. The 26,000-square-foot facility (largest in Texas) is a complete escape with it’s 30 treatment rooms, 3 couples suites, a fitness center and a movement studio with yoga and group exercise classes daily. Spa visitors even have their own private pool! (Photo courtesy of JW Marriott San Antonio – stair case to treatment rooms) In addition to spa treatments and a private pool, there is also a lovely jacuzzi, hot tub and a breathing relaxation room that I could pretty much live in! As a side note…their nail salon features vegan products! (Photo courtesy of JW Marriott San Antonio – ladies lounge) Something that I love about the Spa is how it is influenced by the San Antonio culture and utilizes ingredients that are naturally grown in Texas. For example try out a Citrus & Sunflower Organic Herbal Massage, Texas Caviar Facial, or a Texas Wildflower Signature Manicure! In between treatments? Enjoy a bite at their onsite Replenish Spa Bistro! I’ve eaten here twice and both times was very impressed! All of the dishes are health conscious and I even learned that the hotel has it’s own gardens! Additionally, food and produce is also purchased locally. (Delicious chickpea hummus with multigrain crisps) (The most delicious miso soup!) (My favorite dish – a tasty Caprese salad with tomatoes grown on site and homemade mozzarella) As you can see by the pictures it is truly the perfect place to pamper yourself! I can promise you…you won’t want to leave!
