Fairmont Spa Austin

A chic downtown spa retreat

With its convenient footbridge connection to the Austin Convention Center, Fairmont Austin may be ideal for business travelers, but that doesn’t mean the luxury hotel doesn’t know a thing or two about leisure, from poolside cocktails at Rules & Regs to fine-dining-made-fun at Garrison.

And for ultimate relaxation after an eventful weekend in the state capital, retreat to Fairmont Austin Spa. Located on the hotel’s sixth floor adjacent to a state-of-the-art fitness center, the spa brings the soothing scents and healing properties of Texas Hill Country to downtown Austin.

Choose from a menu of treatments designed using regional ingredients and locally made products, then let your cares slip away while you soak in the spa’s city-skyline-facing saline hot tub.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • While you’re unwinding, Fairmont Austin Spa staff might just surprise you with perfectly timed gifts like a glass of bubbles or a mimosa, chilled cucumber slices for your eyes, a cold eucalyptus towel or a heated herbal neck pillow.
  • Photographer Slim Aarons was the inspiration for the design of the women’s spa area. The relaxation room boasts a floor-to-ceiling Aarons color print of a Palm Springs poolside scene, while the wet facilities feature retro lounge chairs, potted topiaries and a collage of his black-and-white photos depicting swimsuit-clad celebrities and style icons lounging in and around water throughout the 1950s. The men’s spa area has more of a rustic library feel to it, with dark wood bookshelves displaying volumes by local authors, deep-brown armchairs, eggplant chaise lounges and a TV to enjoy the game while you wait for your treatment.
  • Getting ready post-treatment is a snap, as the changing area is stocked with coveted Dyson Supersonic hair dryers and products from Le Labo and eco-friendly Eufora.
  • Both relaxation areas provide snacks like housemate granola bars and nuts plus fruit water and tea. You also can order snacks (from crudités with green goddess dressing to pecan pie with bourbon caramel sauce) from the spa menu, which includes an extensive offering of beer and wine.
  • In addition to high-end products from brands like Tata Harper and Intraceuticals, the spa has also curated top-of-the-line local offerings from companies like Olive + M and Candle Daddy. Fairmont Spa Austin also makes its own aromatherapeutic scrubs and pillow sprays to give guests as gifts.
