La Cantera Resort & Spa – San Antonio, Texas

Its All bigger in Texas, even the luxury!

They say everything is bigger in Texas. I have not tried everything in Texas but I do know that the luxury follows suit. Yes. Big personalities, big hats, big cars, big steaks, and big luxury is what you get when you visit the Lonestar State. We set our sights on La Cantera Resort & Spa today which is awesome for that luxury you seek.

The resort teems with deluxe rooms, signature dining, amazing spa, and a larger than life championship Golf course. San Antonio is the move if you want to experience luxury with some southern charm, and western sensibilities.

La Cantera meets your wants in a resort with sophisticated ranch style decor that finds its way into 496 room, and 34 boutique style villas. There is also an adults only floor here for those who want the utmost peace and quiet. The resort and spa promises intimacy, spacious living areas, cozy beds, and amenities that really makes this AAA Four Diamond Resort stand alone.

There are six styles of accommodation here including room, villas, suites, and an entire adults only floor. We just love the Deluxe style rooms. Both the Deluxe King, and Deluxe Queen rooms have impressive views of resort, city, or Hill Country views. Each comes with a choice of balconies, Wi-Fi, HDTV, Smartphone dock, coffeemaker, mini fridge, rain shower head, robes, and other amenities that make you feel at home.

The activities here are so numerous, you will have trouble making up your mind on what to do. The resort has heated, infinity style pools, separate kids pool, and poolside restaurant. Lomo de Vida Spa has traditional spa offerings, secluded relaxation, and treatments with BIG Texas sky views.

In your reserved pool cabana, you get private pampering with unheard of amenities like refrigerator, HDTV, safe, ceiling fan, bottled water, small bites and personal attendant. La Cantera also has 3, and 5 mile running maps for the joggers, and for the golfer there are 36 holes of championship golf that is designed by Arnold Palmer.

Dinner at La Cantera is inspired, with 12 options for food and drink as well as in-room dining. Chef Andrew Weisman’s Signature restaurant serves conventional dishes that are infused with Texas sensibility. Sweetfire Kitchen serves grilled selections, wood fired pizza, cocktails, wine, and draft beers. Primera Cantina offers indoor/outdoor dining, and Grille 254 that both serve deliciousness in an upscale sports bar setting.

Whether you are a Texas fan, and go often, or will be a first timer, we think La Cantera is the perfect place to start. Visit them at the link for more information, and rates to get your BIG vacation kicked off right.
