Texas-Sized romance at Four Seasons Hotel Austin

Texas-Sized romance at Four Seasons Hotel Austin

It’s time to head to the heart of Texas and Four Seasons Hotel Austin for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day, complete with dinners designed for two, romantic spa treatments and more.

Dinner à Deux

With Valentine’s Day 2012 falling on a Tuesday – admittedly not the most romantic day of the week – couples everywhere will be forced to decide whether to dine the day-of or to eschew tradition and celebrate earlier in the weekend. No matter which option is chosen, sweethearts can take comfort in the fact that TRIO has it covered.

Pre-Valentine’s Weekend – Toast to love at leisure with a Pre-Valentine’s Day three-course prix fixe dinner menu, available February 10 through February 13, 2012. A choice of appetiser and entree yields such delicious options as crispy gulf snapper and beef carpaccio, with a delicious “All About Love” dessert providing the perfect ending to the night.

Priced per person, the prix fixe Pre-Valentine’s Day Menu is available in addition to TRIO’s regular à la carte menu. Reservations are highly recommended.


Valentine’s Day Dinner – Those who prefer to celebrate on Valentine’s Day will be rewarded for their traditionalist take with an incredible four-course prix fixe dinner featuring items such as tuna tartare, seared akaushi tataki, prime beef tenderloin, and seared scallops with Texas shrimp. For dessert, Executive Pastry Chef Javier Franco has dreamed up two delectable options: strawberries and cream, made with fromage blanc mousse, strawberry salad, basil foam and strawberry gelée; or a Chocolate Exclamation! plate, complete with caramelia chocolate praline tart, warm chocolate cake, banana-passion fruit rum and caramel.

The Valentine’s Day Prix Fixe Menu is based per person and available from 5:00 to 10:00 pm on February 14, 2012 only. Reservations are required.

Wax Poetic in The Spa

For a light-hearted twist on romantic candles and wax, The Spa offers its new Warm Lavender Candle Massage. This supremely relaxing treatment includes the gentle and soothing warmth of Pino’s Lavender Rosewood Massage Candle, which features specially-designed wax that turns liquid at a lower temperature. In addition to being very safe, the candle contains coconut oil and other natural ingredients to improve the skin’s elasticity and leave it feeling silky smooth. Available through February 29, 2012, this is a 50-minute treatment.
