The Best Spas in Austin

1. Milk + Honey Spa

The Best Spas in Austin

Milk + Honey wins for their indulgent spa packages, aesthetically pleasing waiting rooms, and exceptional therapists. These design-forward spas started first in Austin, but have now expanded to Houston, Fort Worth, and L.A. 

Go to Milk + Honey if you want an absolutely phenomenal experience from start to finish. Everything part of your day, from the calming scents in the waiting room to the friendly faces who greet you in the lobby to the highly trained therapists and estheticians is next-level. Milk + Honey offers a full range of spa services, like their signature massage (try it with the foot massage enhancement!), couples massage, and a deep tissue massage to provide therapeutic relief from aches and pains. 

It’s also a full medspa, meaning you can get laser skin treatment, dermaplaning, injectables and fillers, and other aesthetic treatments. They work with a renowned dermatologist for all of these minimally invasive procedures. Or, if you just want a hair/nail day, Milk + Honey offers that too. Book a pedicure or maybe a full hair cut/color session before your massage! They have a convenient Downtown Austin spa location that offer complimentary parking

One final fun perk of Milk + Honey: they have their own line of products, and they smell amaaaazing. Plan for a bit of extra time after your massage to enjoy the steam showers in the locker room and those yummy Milk + Honey products, and maybe buy one in the lobby on your way out the door to bring the spa back to your home.

8. Miravel Austin Resort and Spa

The Best Spas in Austin

Ever wanted to get away for a wellness weekend? Miravel Austin is a 220-acre upscale all-inclusive wellness retreat. Their Life in Balnce Spa draws inspiration from the Balcones Canyonland Reserve, where the spa is located. Miravel is all about creating a life in balance, so some of  these spa treatments might be a bit more woo-woo than what you’ll find at a typical day spa. 

For instance, their Ayurveda Treatment is a holistic therapy that helps to cultivate your inner sense of balance. You’ll start with a warm, herbal oil massage to release toxins and increase circulation, then a marma point therapy to balance energy. Next, Shirodhara, a soothing stream of herbal oil, is  poured over the forehead to calm the nervous system. Your treatment concludes with your body cocooned in a warm aromatic wrap while you receive a scalp massage. 

If you want to focus more on whole-body wellness and balance, Miravel is the best spa is Austin for that.
