The Island Resort Hiding In Texas That’s Like Something From A Dream
If you’re looking to take a beach vacation for the whole family or a romantic getaway for two, we’ve discovered a destination that doesn’t take much planning at all. Peninsula Island Resort & Spa is located right on the South Padre shoreline, and it features a restaurant, spa, and massive swimming pool. See for yourself:
Located just steps away from the white sand and pristine water of South Padre Island, Peninsula Island Resort & Spa is the perfect summer getaway. Beachfront access, an on-site restaurant, and a blissful spa are just several of the many reasons to visit this tropical retreat.
Five different types of rooms are available, ranging from studio to presidential. Basic amenities include beds, an extra sofa bed, a fully-furnished kitchen and dining room, television, and bathtub, with luxury additions getting fancier with each successive suite upgrade.
Most rooms have at least a partial ocean view and a large window to enjoy it from. Even if it's too hot outside to spend hours frolicking beneath the summer sun, rest assured you'll still get plenty of Vitamin D.
Suites feature a 10-foot balcony complete with outdoor furniture for maximum relaxation potential. Imagine sipping your morning coffee out here and watching waves gently crash on the shoreline, just taking the morning as it comes.
Cast away any worries about finding a parking spot or space to set up your umbrella. A wooden pier leads straight to the beach, allowing easy access for hotel guests.
Just in case your taste for swimming hasn't yet been satisfied, this massive pool should definitely do the trick. Featuring a hot tub, lounge chairs, and a life-size chessboard, this paradisaical oasis is the perfect place to splash the day away.
Aveda Exclusive Spa takes your vacation from simply relaxing to transcendent. Expert masseuses work magic with their hands while dim mood lighting gives off an effervescent amber glow, creating a magical experience guaranteed to leave you feeling aligned and rejuvenated.
Las Olas Restaurant Bar & Grill is located on-site and open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Traditional Mexican recipes are made to order using only the freshest ingredients, including local seafood. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Sunday, and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday-Saturday.
The adult beverage selection doesn't disappoint, either. Wine bottles range in price from $22 to $500, a margin reflective of just how varied the selection is. A separate by-the-glass menu allows indecisive guests to sample different offerings, and other spirits such as Mexican beer, vodka, and tequila - the latter two being infused with habanero peppers - ensure no drink preference goes unmet.
Address: 340 Padre Boulevard, South Padre Island, TX 78597. Call (956) 761-2514 with any questions or concerns you may have.
