Nestled in a wooded area right outside of Houston, The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center is the perfect spot for your next vacation or meeting. My husband and I had the opportunity to celebrate our ten-year wedding anniversary at The Woodlands Resort at the end of July. Coincidentally, the trip served as a "babymoon" right before the birth of our second baby! It was a perfect location for relaxing and staying cool during the heat of summer!
What drew us to The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center was the resort setting, and of course, the new lazy river! Being in my third trimester of pregnancy, the lazy river was calling my name! The fabulous waterscape features waterfalls, two water slide towers, water activities, and more. It is perfect for families and functions. There were tons of organized activities, including movies in the pool and s'mores in the evenings.
As you can see, the lounge chairs and umbrellas lining the pools were plentiful, and the sound of the waterfall is so relaxing! Waiters will take your order from your chair, so you don't even have to get up for lunch!
When we arrived in our room, we were overjoyed to find a scrumptious cake and sparkling cider to celebrate our anniversary, and a sweet pink onesie for the new addition to our family! The cake was covered in the most delicious shaved chocolate and it was so delicious! This hospitality and attention to detail is indicative of a stay at The Woodlands Resort.
Our room was spacious and comfortable with a great balcony overlooking trees and the golf course. The view in itself was well worth the trip! Even though we were only minutes from the hustle and bustle of the big city, The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center feels like a true escape.
To top off the weekend, I enjoyed a Swedish prenatal massage in the resort spa. What a spa it was! From the moment you walk in, it's like the stress just begins melting away. From the dim lights, to the spa robes, to the fruit-infused water, it is just so peaceful. The staff is extremely friendly, calming, and professional. And the massage? It was just what I needed. I could have stayed all day!
While I was relaxing on the massage table, my husband was able to enjoy leisurely passing the time in the billiards parlor. He was able to relax in the comfy leather chairs and enjoyed the pool and shuffle board tables. He also took a walking tour of the main building and was instantly convinced that he would be making a tee time on our return visit. The Woodlands has huge wooden decks on the edge of the beautiful course leading out to well-manicured fairways and challenging sand traps. It was such a perfect day for golf!
The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center is designed to deliver nothing short of the best experiences. Whether you want to relax at the spa or play on the links, or even relax and play around the amazing pools... this property has it all. Couple the great location and the outstanding service along with such a great property and you simply couldn't ask for much more.
