It’s certainly not understated. But then, if you’re looking for your Tuscan villa–style resort in the Texas Hill Country to be understated, you might have a long search ahead of you. It’s well known things around here come in only one size, and Éilan announces its ambition from the moment you see it. The hotel, it presides over a monumental set of front stairs and landscape of rolling green hills beyond. Texan and Tuscan are hard to mistake, but here, a short hop from an expanse of wine country that does indeed look like wine country — where in contrast to the typical dry Texan mono-scape you’ve got flowers in spring and foliage in fall — you do feel a long way from San Antonio.

And yet you’re no more than twenty minutes from downtown. If you want to step out your door and straight onto San Antonio’s central Riverwalk, or if you have frequent business to attend to in town, this may not be the place for you; but as an escape from the city, a place to relax at the spa or sprawl by the enormous pool or get outdoors, it’s a very convenient one. In the center of town there’s just no room for a resort on this scale, with its acres of marble and towering columns and a dancing fountain in the piazza, its tennis courts and golf simulation room (an outdoor game can be had nearby) and on and on it goes.

For all the amenities and hard-to-miss flourishes, there are also some surprises. For one, the hotel is LEED silver–certified, proof that going big doesn’t have to mean being wasteful. And then there’s the restaurant, which wisely avoids the faux-rustic imported-from-Italy trap in favor of a decidedly contemporary look. Developed and overseen by a locally famous Texan chef, it will have you rethinking any Dairy Queen and Frito pie preconceptions you might have. Sous-vide venison with yucca and huitlacoche hash, anyone? It’s a perfect match for this hotel in the Hill Country — a place apart from the rest of the Lone Star State, yet still unmistakably Texas.
