Lakeway Resort Wraps 18-Month Makeover

The AAA Four Diamond Lakeway Resort and Spa has reached the end of a complex renovation that took over 18 months to complete. Behind the nearly $7 million expansive makeover is the Dow Hotel Company.

The Lakeway Resort and Spa has reached the end of a complex $7 million renovation that was more than 18 months in the making.

The process was completed in phases to minimize disruption and to enhance revenue. “Virtually every aspect of the resort has been upgraded, from the roof to the flooring and everything in between,” said Murray Dow II, president of Dow Hotel Co., Lakeway’s owner and operator, in a statement.

“This is the seventh major renovation we have completed in the past 24 months, all of which have been on time and budget,” Dow added.The 168-key property has earned a Four-Diamond rating from AAA.

Public spaces were refreshed to reflect a contemporary style that combines natural and traditional Texas themes; elemsents of guest rooms were thoroughly revitalized, from carpeting to furniture. Dow upgraded food and beverage venues and added a new restaurant, Masterson’s Steakhouse.

Meeting space has been redesigned to benefit from the lake and Hill Country views. The 17 meeting rooms, including four ballrooms that provide 24,000 square feet for functions, can accommodate up to 350 guests.

The 4,000-square-foot Kid Zone play area has been highly colored and retooled. Two heated pools and one unheated pool can be used year round; the outdoor area has been enriched with new surfaces and water features, as well as a swim-up pool bar. Internet speed has been enhanced and rooms have been equipped with large high-definition TVs.
