The 405-acre Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa, on the Colorado River in the Texas Hill Country just outside Austin, has unveiled a multimillion-dollar guest-room renovation. Interior design firm Stonehill Taylor tackled the redesign of all 434 rooms.
“With the guest room and suite updates, we look forward to showcasing an intuitive, seamless and modern travel stay while continuing to provide the superior and authentic hospitality and care reflective of our Texas resort,” said Keith Spinden, general manager of the property.
The new look features an upscale ranch-style feel with a "modern and sophisticated" aesthetic. The design aims to pay tribute to the hotel’s central Texas location, and its close proximity to the vibrant city of Austin. The new Hyatt Grand Beds with leather-bound headboards have built-in ambient and accent lighting. Each room also has been outfitted with a sleek modern hearth that doubles as a wall mount for the TVs.
The resort’s suites also received new furnishings, carpet and décor. Many of them now come with wood-framed queen-size Murphy Beds to optimize the room’s living spaces and to provide flexible sleeping arrangements. The renovated Litton House, a 2,000-square-foot cottage separated from the main resort, accommodates up to eight guests.
Updates to the resort’s 60,000 square feet of meeting space were completed in 2020. In the process, the resort’s LBJ Pavilion and Wildflower Pavilion were equipped with floor-to-ceiling retractable glass walls that can be opened or closed to provide both indoor and outdoor functionality year-round. The pavilions are part of Lost Pines' more than 240,000 square feet of outdoor function space.
Taking advantage of the resort's amenities, guests can relax in the Spa Django, go horseback riding, hike 18 miles of trails connected to the McKinney Roughs Nature Park, learn archery, take trap-shooting classes, and fish for bass, carp, and catfish in the resort’s stocked pond. Lost Pines also is home to the championship 18-hole Wolfdancer Golf Club.
The on-site Crooked River Water Park is comprised of a 1,000-foot lazy river, a two-story water slide, an activity pool with a volleyball net and a sandy beach, a kiddie pool, and a splash pad. The adults-only section has a relaxing pool, a whirlpool and cabana for rent.
