Escape the chaos of daily life and explore Texas’ natural beauty at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa. Celebrating 17 years, the resort and spa continues to offer signature experiences and standout hospitality.

Located just 20 minutes outside of Austin, the resort and spa offers guests an outdoor haven, spanning 405 acres along the Colorado River. From relaxing in the lazy river to enjoying first class steak or sushi, Hyatt Regency Lost Pines is a hidden gem with Texas charm that offers something for every type of traveler, from couples to families.

General Manager Irby Morvant said the resort has evolved over the years, and only continues to better serve its guests. Some of the most recent renovations include new restaurants, a golf course redesign and elevated signature experiences.

Unique culinary experiences

Maude’s Bar & Terrace is named for one of the oldest pecan trees on the property, Morvant said. The eatery offers a Mediterranean share-plate experience with outdoor seating next to fire pits as well as a brand-new, 16-seat bar with a full menu of craft cocktails.

Maude’s must-try cocktails:
  • Salted Rosemary Paloma: made with Dulce Vida grapefruit tequila, ruby red grapefruit juice, house-made grapefruit rosemary syrup and topped with soda water
  • Apricot Mezcalgarita: made with Lobos mezcal, apricot liqueur, house-made ginger simple syrup, garnished with a ginger salt and sugar rim and a lime wheel
  • Texas Ginger Julep: made with Noble Oak bourbon, house-made ginger simple syrup, lemon, mint, candied ginger and topped with soda water
To taste some of Texas’ southern favorites, try Maverick's Roadhouse—Lost Pines’ modern take on the classic Texas Roadhouse. On the menu, guests can find chicken-fried steak, pork belly sandwiches, local craft beer and bourbon flights.

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines is also home to Sushi by Scratch, Chef Phillip Frankland Lee’s new signature Omakase experience. The intimate restaurant seats only 10 guests and three nightly seatings at 5 p.m., 7:15 p.m.and 9:30 p.m. Those with a spot can enjoy a 17-course experience complete with sushi, nigiri, sashimi and more.

Lost Pines Golf Club

Beyond culinary offerings, the property’s award-winning Lost Pines Golf Club – one of the most notable golf courses in Texas – has just unveiled a redesigned course layout complete with four brand new holes and new membership program.

Morvant said the Lost Pines golf course is entirely surrounded by nature.

“We realigned the course to flow more naturally with the topography of the land,” Morvant said.

Designed by golf architect Arthur Hills, the 7,200-yard, par-72 golf course takes advantage of the natural Texas terrain to create a fun yet challenging setup for skilled players, beginners and everyone in between. To inquire about Lost Pines club memberships or tee times, click here.

Elevated signature experiences

In addition to golf greens and good eats, Hyatt Regency Lost Pines also offers a variety of activities for adults and children. One of the most recent additions to the resort is Legend of the Lasso, inspired by the tradition that dates back hundreds of years. Adults can check out Crafts and Drafts for nostalgia paired with local craft beers that tell a story.

“We’re bringing a little history and depth to what we do from an activity standpoint,” Morvant said.

Morvant said the resort is also expanding its mascots program, Longhorns and Friends. They have recently welcomed two new baby alpacas and a rescue longhorn named Sirloin.

Stop by the Lost Pines Corral to meet the longhorns, ponies, pigs, alpacas, goats, donkeys, and Oreo the highland cow.

Holidays at the Pines

The holiday season is nearly in full swing, and guests can look forward to the Lost Pines Tree Lighting event Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. The magical and festive experience wouldn’t be complete without a towering Christmas tree adorned with ornaments, and a photo opportunity with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Afterwards, guests can head to Maude’s for special holiday cocktails. Families can enjoy a holiday movie on the back lawn with seasonally inspired s’mores, popcorn, hot cocoa and mulled cider. The event is a joint venture between Lost Pines and its local sponsors, including Lost Pines Yaupon Tea, Island Getaway Rum and team members from Renegade Trailhead T&D Adventure Parks. Guests looking for gifts can also attend a sip and shop with McDade’s Christmas Workshop or build their own hats at Lost Vly pop-up.

For a winter staycation, book a visit at Lost Pines for a luxurious escape, complete with festive cookies and cocktails, horse drawn wagon rides, holiday meals and Santa’s Workshop. Maude’s will also have holiday selections and craft cocktails under twinkling Christmas lights as well as Christmas Dinner at Heartwood House, complete with beef tenderloin wellington, maple glazed sweet potatoes and more.
