Texas Beach Resorts

There's definitely much to be celebrated about Texas. With its phenomenal diversity and incredible opportunities, it still remains somewhat underrated as a vacation destination, mostly by people living outside the continental U.S. who just aren't in the geographical loop. Many wouldn't believe how many great Texas beach resorts and Texas beach hotels there are to choose from. Resorts on the Texas coast take advantage of the warm, tropical weather, blue skies, and the best part—the Gulf of Mexico.

The Isla Grand Beach Resort on beautiful South Padre Island is one of the top Texas beach resorts for many reasons. This is one of the oceanfront resorts in Texas situated in the heart of island's hotel and resort district, occupying prime real estate. Isla Grand features lavish accommodations, exciting nightlife, exceptional cuisine, and special events facilities. It is one of the few oceanfront resorts in Texas boasting more than ten acres of lush gardens, multiple tennis courts and pools, and a wide choice in watersports all which are only a few steps away from the beach. South Padre Island has some of the most beautiful and pristine Texas beaches. It is renowned as one of the best vacation spots in Texas.

Notable Texas beach resorts include the Kontiki Beach Resort in Rockport. It is set apart from other resorts on the Texas coast by its status as a condo-resort, meaning guests enjoy many more comforts of home then they might at other coastal resorts. Set right on Aransas Bay, less than thirty feet away from the water, the experience at Kontiki is nothing shy of excellent. Private condo decks might as well be right on the water, they are so close. Enjoy miles of pure, white sand beaches, private docks for easy Texas cruises, a fishing pier only steps away, and a large pool all from your fully furnished condo resort accommodation.

The San Luis Resort, Spa, and Conference Center (pictured) is an incredibly, hip, modern, and stylish resort catering to guests who know what they like and when they like it. Situated in Galveston overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, San Luis is one of the best resorts on the Texas coast. It presents seemingly endless options for dining, recreation, relaxation, and nightlife. An ideal balance between comfort and luxury is achieved throughout San Luis's suites where each room, from standard to penthouse, are plush, spacious, and inviting. There are numerous Texas vacation deals through special packages available for each type of room. The onsite spa is the ultimate in tranquility. A host of the latest treatments are available to guests. Tennis courts, a massive swimming pool, plunge pool, water slide, private cabanas, and shopping at the Style Boutique are only some of the amenities at the San Luis.

Beauty surrounds many regions of the state, but not quite as much as the scenery around oceanfront resorts in Texas. The locals are friendly, the fishing is world class, and best of all, there are endless activities to keep entertained for as long as you plan to stay. From world-renowned cities such as Dallas and Houston to the Gulf shores skirting Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, and beyond, Texas is full of surprises and unexpected, offering an exciting and refreshing destination with no limits.
