AUSTIN, TX (September 20, 2006) – Lake Austin Spa Resort, the popular destination spa in Austin, Texas, has once again been honored for excellence by savvy readers of two prestigious travel and spa publications, Travel + Leisure and Spa Finder.

The readers of Travel + Leisure magazine voted Lake Austin Spa Resort one of the Top 15 Destination Spas in the World – Lake Austin Spa Resort was ranked number 12. The magazine’s annual World’s Best Spas Readers’ Poll appears in the October 2006 issue, available on and currently on newsstands.

According to Spa Finder, a leading spa consumer website and magazine, Lake Austin Spa Resort has been voted one of the Ten Best Spas in the World for its cuisine, fitness program, cooking classes, water sports, yoga, interior design and for visiting solo by visitors and Spa Finder magazine readers, which together attract millions of spa consumers annually.

“These accolades are a tribute to the more than 250 staff members who everyday provide our guests with an inspiring, healthy vacation experience,” said Lake Austin Spa Resort owner Mike McAdams.

“Spa-goers have spoken, and they’ve placed Lake Austin Spa Resort at the very top of their lists in seven important categories,” said Spa Finder, Inc. CEO Pete Ellis. “This is a tremendous accomplishment given the diversity and quality of spas worldwide – a truly meaningful validation of the superb spa experience offered by Lake Austin Spa Resort.”

They were asked to name their favorite spas in 23 specific spa features and offerings – from “Best Accommodations” and “Most Affordable,” to “Best Medical Spas” and “Best Spa Brands.”

Voters cast ballots for spas they’ve personally visited within the past three years. More than 1,000 different spa properties worldwide were nominated in the 2006 Spa Finder Readers’ Choice Awards. A complete listing of Spa Finder’s Best Spas poll is available at
