Why Stay At La Cantera Hill Country Resort
Skirting San Antonio, the stellar line-up of amenities at the luxurious full-service resort leaves nothing to be desired.
Perched on a knoll in South Texan Hill Country, La Cantera is encircled by verdant plant life and softly rolling slopes. Imposing colonial-style architecture and ubiquitous playful reminders (look out for the hand-painted treasure map gracing the ceiling at Steinheimer's Lounge) draw on the Lone Star state's rich, culturally diverse history. Roomy modernly appointed accommodations have wireless Internet, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, oversized working desks and outstandingly plush beds. Activities are plentiful: The spectacular complex encompasses six swimming pools and is traversed by bridges, channels and a waterfall. The resort lures golfers with two much-praised championship golf courses, one of them Arnold Palmer-designed, and San Antonio's largest shopping mall, Shops at La Cantera, is closeby. Or indulge at the on-site Castle Rock Day Spa with its novel-thick treatment menu. No need to venture off-property for food: La Cantera's five restaurants are sure to please any taste. Reservations at resident Francesca's at Sunset are recommended. The award-winning eatery serves up imaginative locally sourced Southwestern cuisine along with mesmerizing views across Hill Country.
Pick up a pocketsize running map of the property from the Concierge desk and jog around the pastoral three or five-mile circuit.
Ready for off-site thrills? Attractions like Six Flags Fiesta Texas and SeaWorld are just a short distance away.
Arrive at San Antonio International Airport (SAT) which is approximately 15 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time.16641 La Cantera Parkway, San Antonio, Texas,
