Did you know one of the most important battles in U.S. history took place right here in San Antonio? Back in 1836 the Battle of the Alamo took place in San Antonio between the U.S. and Mexico, although they lost the battle, they became a symbol of heroic resistance. A few months later the U.S. won that battle and Mexican troops were forced back to Mexico. As you can imagine San Antonio is filled with lots of rich culture and history. The Luxury Travel Agency has a few partner hotels, all of them so different and unique, that we would be happy to assist you in booking. Below are a few of our partner hotels.
Set atop the highest elevation point in San Antonio, Texas, La Cantera Resort & Spa welcomes guests to 550 acres of luxurious surroundings in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. The readers of Condé Nast Traveler have named it the #1 Resort in Texas and the Southwest in their annual Readers’ Choice Awards and it’s no surprise people travel from all around to soak up the ambiance of this quiet, secluded hilltop escape.

After a day of hiking the hill country or playing a round of golf on one of the two championship golf courses, guests enjoy wide open spaces at the award-winning Loma de Vida Spa. The 25,000-square foot wellness center was conceived by some of the most respected spa designers in the world, Blu Spas Inc, and features Sky Lofts – outdoor treatment spaces set atop the tree line which overlooks nature and the fairways. The Sky Lofts feature an outdoor shower and Cowboy soaking tub so you can soak up the great outdoors, while you also soak.
When it’s time to wind down, the Villas welcome guests who want a little more seclusion, 34 private accommodations, nestled among the trees with a separate pool, hot tub, bar and reception area as well as a designated golf cart to get to and from resort activities.
