The Cool Pool of the Week: Lake Austin Spa Resort

At the Lake Austin Spa Resort in Texas, Millennials can choose from three pools, plus steam rooms, saunas and whirlpools, including the Pool Barn, a junior Olympic-length pool inside a barn. 

The Pool Barn houses a junior Olympic-length lap pool and is literally a barn with roll-up, garage-style doors that can be opened during the day to let in the cool, Texas Hill Country breezes. It looks out onto beautiful landscaping and, in the spring, visitors get a visual treat of seeing the Texas bluebonnets bloom right outside the Pool Barn’s doors. 

The doors can be rolled up to let the breeze flow in from the surrounding hill country. Guests can swim laps, float, or take meditation and yoga classes, offered as part of the property's Ripple Effects summer water program that ties back to the health benefits of being in, near or on a body of water. The Pool Barn offers a variety of activities, including: AquaFitness classes, Blue Yoga, DriftAway Meditation, Lap Swimming, team-building events, and Wellness on Water Workouts (WOWW), which utilize tethered aqua fitness mats.
