Full Disclosure: I was provided with accommodations to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
The Woodlands Resort is nestled in a nature preserve just 30 minutes north of Houston. Walking into the resort gives a feeling of being surrounded by a tropical oasis. At The Woodlands Resort, prepare to surround yourself with nature, award winning golf courses, and opportunities to relax while creating memories with loved ones.
After Gunner’s rigorous chemo treatments, our family was ready to escape for a weekend of relaxation. We visited The Woodlands Resort at the beginning of our cross country road trip in 2013 and absolutely fell in love with the resort.
With its convenient location less than 200 miles from our house, it was a no-brainer to spend the weekend at one of our favorite Texas resorts! I had heard that The Woodlands Resort expanded Forest Oasis Waterscape with the addition of a 1005 ft lazy river.
We packed our bags… really we just grabbed our swimsuits and hit the road! After checking in, it didn’t take long for the kids to jump in the water. Check out the video below to watch Gunner’s reaction to the new lazy river and spiral slide that deposits you into the lazy river!
The Woodlands Resort has so much to offer, including two championship award winning golf courses, two pools in addition to the Forest Oasis Waterscape (including the pool pictured below), bicycling for the entire family, and close proximity to top tier shopping destinations!
The Woodlands Resort has many options to keep your family entertained, but our family really just wanted to relax and hang out next to the pool. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at The Woodlands Dining Room (review post coming soon). Then ordered lunch and dinner poolside. I love the healthy fresh options! My salad was tasty and refreshing. The kids’ meals were filling after a day full of swimming and were served with a slice of fresh fruit and a homemade chocolate chip cookie –priced less than a McDonald’s happy meal, I might add!!
Once the sun goes down, warm up next to the fire and enjoy complimentary s’mores!
The Woodlands Resort is the ultimate southern destination! Will you schedule a spa day, play a few rounds of golf, or relax next to the pool the next time you plan a visit The Woodlands Resort?
