For four decades, The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center has provided a convenient escape to nature and recreation for families, couples, golf and tennis enthusiasts, and business travelers.   The gorgeous forest setting provides the backdrop for a resort of grand proportions, offering an array of leisure and business amenities and genuine Texas hospitality. Less than an hour outside of Houston this makes the ultimate Houston Staycation!

We had the opportunity to spend a few amazing days at The Woodlands Resort this summer and I had to share just how amazing this resort really is. From the moment you pull up and they open the door for you, you know you have arrived at a one of a kind resort!

They have valet so you don’t have to worry about parking, but if self parking is more your style (like us) then don’t worry! They have golf carts that will pick you up at your car and take you to your building.

It is your home away from home! All the comforts of home with a fabulous luxury feel!

The Woodlands Resort in Texas offers 406 deluxe guest rooms, including standard rooms, spacious suites and executive accommodations. Whether your stay is for business or pleasure, the well-appointed, thoughtfully designed retreats provide a comfortable environment for you to enjoy.

The Resort’s guest rooms are located within three luxuriously outfitted buildings adjacent to the Forest Oasis Waterscape™ and the 1st and 18th holes of the Panther Trail™ golf course. All rooms and suites feature inspiring views and a variety of amenities, and many offer a private outdoor patio or balcony. All Resort guest rooms are designated non-smoking.

They come with a coffee bar that was the cherry on the top for me!

The Woodlands Resort presents a vast array of hotel amenities to enjoy during your stay including multiple on-site golf courses, tennis courts and pools, spa and fitness facilities, hiking trails and numerous dining options within footsteps of your door.

At the Forest Oasis Waterscape™, families enjoy days filled with fun and summertime adventure, racing down the spectacular double-helix water slide or floating along the Resort’s new lazy river. The award-winning pool experience carries the fun well into the evenings with dive-in movie screenings, build-your own s’mores, and other family activities.

Take a ride down the Lazy River and enjoy the slide along the way!

Or enjoy the beautiful waterfall, pool, and slide. The kids LOVED the slides!

Or enjoy the deeper pool with another waterfall.

Or take a dip in the adults only (THANK YOU!) whirlpool!

For the little ones, there is a kiddie splash area and pool.

And while you are there you simply have to visit the Spa!

From the moment you walk in your are transported into a calming and serene environment. I had a Swedish Massage and let me tell you this was one of the best things I could do for myself. This mom needed to be transported to a state of relaxation!  I didn’t take pictures past the changing room because it was time to unplug and relax!

There are daily activities for the whole family. Check out the line up of activities that happened while we were there. You can see the calendar of activities at the Woodlands Resort here.

We enjoyed games by the pool and nightly s’mores!

And end the night watching the sun go down followed by a Dive In Movie!

They have everything you need from your towels to tubes to drinks by the pool!

No need to leave to eat. They have 4 restaurants on site! You can enjoy your meals and drinks by the pool at the Cool Water Cafe.

Or enjoy a breakfast buffet at the The Woodlands Dining Room.

Or enjoy room service late at night!

So what do you need to bring with you? That is easy! Whatever you need to enjoy your relaxing vacation! For me that included a fun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a good book.

The property’s soothing forest landscape is overflowing with exciting resort amenities including two on-site championship golf courses, a world-class tennis center, multiple pool areas, an indulgent spa, a fitness center and a vast network of hiking and biking trails.  

Life is so nice at The Woodlands Resort! It is like being transported to another world but right here close to the city!
