Creating a life in balance begins with being fully present and engaged in the moment. Our digital device-free resorts let guests participate in the Miraval experience free of distraction — and gives them permission to unplug. We ask everyone to use technology only in designated locations to practice being mindful of the moment and respectful of fellow guests. E-readers are allowed. More information on Miraval Mode as well as digital mindfulness resources, can be found here: https://www.miravalaustin.com/miraval-mode/
We offer a wide variety of experiences at our resort, from outdoor adventure to yoga and fitness to equine and more! We recommend packing comfortable fitness clothes and closed-toed shoes for when you’re exploring Cypress Creek Farm, kayaking on Lake Travis, or hiking in the Balcones Canyonland Preserve. We also have two stunning infinity pools, so be sure to pack your swimsuit!
We offer a complimentary airport shuttle for both arriving and departing guests. The complimentary pick-up from Austin-Bergstrom Airport leaves for the resort on the hour between 10 am and 5 pm.

Your safety is important to us. Miraval security staff routinely patrol the resort property. Should you have any concerns, please dial the resort operator. All Miraval staff are required to identify themselves by department name prior to entering a guest room. Please activate the deadbolt for maximum security and privacy. If you see or hear any suspicious activity, please report your observations to management. Do not leave valuables in your room. Place valuables in the provided room safe.
While check in to the room is at 3 pm, we invite you to come on property as early as 11 am to take advantage of activities, services and lunch, starting at 11:30 am. We suggest not scheduling your first activity for the first 1 & 1/2 hours, to give you time for check-in and lunch, before jumping in to the first activity or service. The Front Desk can store your luggage if needed prior to checking into your room. On your day of departure, we ask that you're out of the room by 11 am, but can stay on property until 5 pm, if you have your own transportation.

Miraval is a non-tipping resort property. We believe a “no tipping” policy is essential to a mindful guest experience. Once you arrive at Miraval, a friendly “thank you” or note on a guest comment card is the best tip you can give and the only one we allow.
All packages include luxurious accommodations, nightly resort credit to use toward spa services & private sessions, all gourmet meals, non-alcoholic beverages, and complimentary airport shared shuttle service. Enjoy unlimited access to daily complimentary wellbeing activities and resort amenities.
Resort credits are applied to fee-based activities and spa treatments. They cannot be applied to retail purchases or alcohol. Resort credits are accrued nightly, and they rollover throughout your stay. However, any unused resort credits at the end of your stay are forfeited. The amount of resort credits you receive depends on the package that you book. Please reach out to an Experience Planner if you have any questions.

Staying hydrated is important in the Texas heat! We provide each guest with a Miraval water bottle and there are FloWater stations in all of the main buildings. There is also a water carafe in each guestroom.
We are so grateful to be surrounded by the beautiful nature of the Balcones Canyonland Preserve. You may see diverse wildlife while you’re here, such as roadrunners, turkeys, golden cheek warblers, deer, foxes, snakes, scorpions, and spiders. We recommend that you do not leave any doors open, welcoming any wildlife into your room and that you stay mindful of your surroundings.
We had such an amazing stay at Miraval. We absolutely loved all of the classes we took - yoga, meditation, photography, bee keeping, etc. All of the instructors were great and every meal we had was amazing. I couldn’t recommend it enough! I can’t wait to go back!

"First Solo Vacation Ever"
If you are in need of a reboot, time to yourself, or prepping to reenter life after Covid, I cannot recommend Miraval Austin as your starting point. Take a good book and an empty journal, and feel what it's like to unhook and drop in fully to your own perspective. I took away profound life lessons that make me a better partner, mother, and business woman. You will not be alone on your solo adventure, and you will feel immense gratitude for affording yourself this time.
