What You'll Get
Unlike legal resorts and last resorts, luxury resorts are planned in advance, include a fluffy robe, and generally don't involve sketchy third cousins. Book a getaway from the drama with today's deal: for $149, two people get the Holiday Lights & Ice package, including a one-night stay, a skating session, and breakfast in the resort's dining room (up to a $250 value) at Barton Creek Resort & Spa. An obligatory 12% resort charge (not included in this deal) includes access to the health club, housekeeper gratuity, golf-bag storage, the daily newspaper, resort shuttles, and in-room coffee. Reservations are required.
Barton Creek Resort & Spa combines luxe accommodations with a host of holiday activities and a new ice rink. Each 425-square-foot resort guestroom comes with one king or two queen beds—just like a Porsche—as well as a TV, in-room safe, robes, a stocked refreshment center, and a soothing gaggle of homing pigeons. Soak away stress in the indoor pool before hitting the rink, where you and the significant other or significant original of your choice can speed across 3,800 square feet of solid water with the grace of a basilisk (skate rental is included). Add junior ice aces to the roster for an extra $13 during the week or $15 Friday through Sunday (paid directly to the resort). After a day of frosty fun, Barton Creek's 240,000 twinkling lights are the perfect way to thaw frozen souls. Take in a display of holiday trees with themes such as Christmas on the Ranch, Keep Austin Weird, and Whoa, Austin, Too Weird. Before leaving, guests may breakfast in the Hill Country Dining Room. Included valet parking ensures that your car will come to you a lot quicker than your ill-deployed boomerang and disobedient alpaca.
Rather than awkwardly hinting for a roommate to place chocolates on your pillow every morning or calling 911 operators in the wee hours of the night to demand room service, opt for a relaxing stay and holiday activities at Barton Creek Resort & Spa. With luxurious amenities and an unusually low hotel record of shark attacks, it’s the perfect weekend getaway, romantic getaway, or getaway to watch the movie The Getaway.
This Groupon does not include tax, gratuity, and a mandatory 12% resort fee.
- Barton Creek Resort & Club (BCR&C) welcomed us with open arms and have been treating us like family. Whether it's helping us with parking when it's busy, acknowledging us by name when we return to the hotel, quickly responding to our room needs…Our room is clean, spacious and comfortable. The food is delicious and room service highly efficient. – Rick R., Yelp
- My stay at the resort was fantastic from start to finish. First, the view from my hotel room was so pretty! Looking out at the hills and golf course was very relaxing…Everything from the room service to the room itself was a pleasant experience. I'm ready to go back! – snowflake1662, TripAdvisor
