Enjoy Fun-Filled Days and Lazy Nights at The Woodlands Resort this Summer

| May 1, 2016

An enchanted oasis minutes from Houston, but worlds apart

As temperatures begin to heat up in Texas, so does the fun at The Woodlands® Resort. Located just 30 minutes north of downtown Houston and set among 350 wooded acres, this fully renovated resort is the number one choice for families throughout Texas looking for a nearby respite from the traditional urban experience and a place to have a whole lot of fun!



In the summer months, The Woodlands Resort is alive with excitement centering around the property’s Forest Oasis Waterscape™. Located within a vast poolside environment surrounded by three luxurious guestroom buildings, towering pines and the lush forest, the spectacular Forest Oasis Waterscape has been designed to provide a fun and refreshing experience for the entire family.

Opened in July of 2014 as part of the Resort’s $77 million renovation, a thousand-and-five-foot lazy river provides riders with a relaxing nine-and-a-half minute trip surrounded by lush landscaping. As riders enter the river, they are greeted with a mosaic by Houston artist Denise Liebl celebrating the beauty of native wildlife in The Woodlands. Guests may also stop during their trip along the lazy river to get out and enjoy a refreshing ride down the Resort’s plunge slide, landing in the lazy lagoon pool.

Just around the corner from the lazy river, more fun is to be found in the rest of the Forest Oasis Waterscape – ranked as one of the best pools in the nation – boasting a lagoon-style pool, two-story waterslide tower, flowing waterfalls, splash pad with pop fountains and underwater music and murals. Kids can relax poolside in the evening and take in a dive-in movie, shown nightly from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Families can bask in the volume of kid-centric activities and amenities offered throughout the day, and whether dining poolside at Cool Water Cafe or in The Woodlands Dining Room, the Resort’s flagship dining locale, leisure guests will find themselves blissfully entertained exclusively within the Resort.



For the golf enthusiasts, the Resort features two on-property championship golf courses, Panther Trail™ and The Oaks. Both incorporate all the ingredients for exceptional golf — deep woods, glistening waters, exceptional fairways and pristine greens. With tree-lined fairways and challenging elevations, the courses allow golfers of all skill levels to test their talent and grow their game. For tennis lovers, the Resort features a world class tennis center with 21 first-rate clay and hard court playing surfaces.



Searching for inner-peace, relaxation and rejuvenation? You will find it at The Woodlands Resort’s full-service day spa and fitness center. With a variety of nature-inspired treatments for both men and women including body wraps, facials and a variety of pampering for the hands and feet, the stress of everyday life will melt away at The Spa. Signature offerings include the Yellow Rose Mud Wrap, the Sunflower Salt Scrub and the soothing Green Tea Pedicure. In keeping with the family-friendly atmosphere, the Resort also offers Petite Spa services for those ages 6-12 that include manicures, pedicures, and facials. The Spa staff at The Woodlands Resort is highly trained at the art of delivering a restorative experience within a serene and peaceful environment.

Rediscovering an appreciation for nature and its beauty is not hard to do at the Resort and throughout The Woodlands community. With over 200 miles of hike and bike trails through the southern reaches of the Texas Piney Woods, families can marvel at the unending canopy of trees and the varying species of birds. With more than 100 Texas parks and several lakes, guests can take time to enjoy nature in its purest form on foot or on a rented bicycle from the Resort with a guided map to find your way.



The Woodlands has many amenities and dining options to entertain and delight staycationers.
