We love that the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is kicking off its fourth annual Holiday Lights & Ice event (open to the public) on Wednesday, November 27 with Austin’s largest ice skating rink and 200,000 twinkling lights throughout the resort. It’s truly a sight to see.

The resort will also have a hot chocolate bar with holiday-flavored shots like caramel and peppermint and s’mores kits available, too. A portion of the proceeds from HL&I will be donated to Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas. What’s not to love about that?

In light of this event, the resort is offering the “Holiday Lights & Ice Package” with rates from $298 per night for a family of four. The package, which will be available from November 27-January 6, includes cozy luxury accommodation, one ice skating session on the largest ice rink in Austin per person, per night of stay, and a festive breakfast buffet in the resort’s AAA Four Diamond-rated Hill Country Dining Room.

An additional holiday package offered at Barton Creek includes the Omni-wide holiday package titled: “Elves and Eggnog Package.” With a 20% discount at participating Omni Hotels & Resorts, the package offers: luxury accommodation, eggnog amenity, a complimentary breakfast for two, holiday turndown service with a treat, delivered by hotel elves, “hotelves”, and a late check-out – all of which is available. Nov. 15 – Dec. 30. For more information, call 866-572-7369 for pricing or visit
