Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country overlooking Lake Travis, Travaasa Austin is a luxurious landscape for your next meeting or event. With 210 acres offering numerous opportunities for team-building, relaxation and meeting space, groups can find something new and exciting around every corner.

Travaasa boasts 3,864 square feet of indoor meeting space between three unique rooms in the Live Oak Center and 9,000 square feet of outdoor meeting space on the Mesquite Patio, Solidago Gardens or The Farm at Travaasa.

Each of the indoor spaces offers something unique and purposeful for any group dynamic. The Fireside Room features an open wood deck, two walls of windows and a stone fireplace providing a feeling of warmth and comfort. The Showroom offers a 7-foot-by-10- foot screen and projector, Dolby 7.1 In-house Sound, and an automated blind system with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the property. Lastly, The Lone Star Room features a floated bamboo floor, ceiling with exposed wood trusses, one wall of floor-toceiling windows, a ceiling-mounted projector and a motorized 10-foot-by-15-foot screen that’s perfect for presentations.

The true highlight of Travaasa, though, is the team-building and interactive experiences offered to guests, with areas of interest including dynamic development, adventure, culinary art, Texas culture, social responsibility, nature, wellness and crafting. Examples include high ropes courses and ziplining, a good old-fashioned Texas two-step class, wine tasting or a harmonica workshop. “Our most popular team-building activities include The Challenge Course, Lego TeamBuilding, Geocaching and the Equine Encounter,” says Virginia Schlitt, senior events manager. “Travaasa offers team-building activities that fit every group, as well as the option to customize the experience.”
