Miraval Group has acquired the Travaasa Austin Resort from
Amstar Group and will spend the next two years expanding and redeveloping the
220-acre property into what will become the Miraval Austin.
Miraval will increase the hotel's room
count to 120 from 70, expand the property’s main restaurant and more the double
the spa space. Miraval plans to finish the redevelopment in January 2019.
Miraval, which operates its
eponymous resort in Tucson, Ariz., earlier this year took over spa operations
at Southern California’s Monarch Beach Resort as part of its expansion plans
for its Life in Balance Spa brand. Miraval also said this year that it will redevelop
the Cranwell Resort in western Massachusetts.
The Travaasa Austin Resort is
located about 20 miles northwest of Austin proper.
