Escape To The Hill Country For A Festive Visit

Austin, Texas – Going stir crazy at home? If you want to get out of town and find some Christmas cheer, the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa, located on 405 acres of Texas landscape right outside of Austin and near the city of Bastrop, will provide socially-distanced holiday experiences for guests. Activities range from the nightly “Holiday Light Stroll” to appearances from Santa in a life-size snow globe.

“We are thrilled to provide a menu of signature resort experiences for our guests this holiday season,” said Cory Baum, director of sales and marketing at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa. “In addition to the holiday lineup, the winter season is a great time to enjoy the mild Texas weather at our spacious resort. We provide several year-round activities ranging from family fishing at our stocked pond to horseback rides through the Lost Pines forest.”
