Riveting Resorts X Factors That Seal The Deal By Marlane Bundock
Full-service resorts offer virtually everything a meeting needs on site—from meeting rooms and banquet services to enter- tainment and teambuilding options. But, in the South, not all resorts are created equally so we set out to find some of the coolest features that set our resorts apart from each other and those in other parts of the world.
The Glass Ballroom On The Lake
Waterfront events create an alluring experience for attendees, but anything held outdoors creates drawbacks. All the worries wash away at the Lakeway Resort and Spa in Austin and the resortʼs 5,200-square-foot, glass-enclosed ballroom that sits par- tially over the surface of Lake Travis. Youʼre going to also want to incorporate the lake and the surrounding Texas Hill Country landscape into your teambuilding activities as the resort just launched a series of out-of-the-box, professional-grade group ac- tivities like a Texas-styled sailing regatta.
