The Woodlands Resort will soon become the first Curio Collection by Hilton branded resort in Texas. Along with its January 4, 2022 transition to the upscale portfolio, the 402-room, AAA Four Diamond property with 75,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space is slated for an extensive program of enhancements projected to begin in the second quarter of 2022. 

Among the key areas of capital focus are health and wellness, food and beverage and outdoor events. Existing amenities include two championship golf courses, a bike and kayak fleet, the Forest Oasis Lazy River & Waterpark, a tennis center with 21 courts, the Back Table Kitchen & Bar, and direct access to 200-plus miles of trails.

The resort's 10,000-square-foot spa will be the beneficiary of a top-to-bottom makeover, and the fitness facility will be expanded and modernized with state-of-the-art equipment. A new lobby bar with water views, gourmet grab-and-go and specialty market will join upgrades to existing restaurant and bar spaces. In addition, the 3,000-square-foot Forest Deck, overlooking Lake Harrison, will be transformed as an alfresco venue for meetings, ceremonies and receptions. 

Five Texas wineries and vineyards for hosting toastworthy meetings and events.

Cowboys, barbeque, longhorns, honky-tonk and ... wine? Texas is known for a lot of things, but wine may not be top of mind for visitors to the Lone Star State. That, however, would be a huge mistake. Did you know that Texas was the site of the first vineyard in North America? It was established by Franciscan priests in the mid-1700s. 

 

In 2021, the focus is on wellness. In Texas, there’s a spa for that.

The last two years have been, to put it mildly, challenging. Showing your team some appreciation for a job well done with a little spa pampering will allow them to relax and regroup together. Whether you’re looking to make a day, weekend or week of it, Texas has a spa retreat to suit your needs. 

Make a Week of It

 

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses.
