Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las ColinasThough technically in the city of Irving, midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, this Four Seasons outpost has honorary Dallas status, as it was a pioneer in the area’s luxury hotel scene. Opened in 1986, it’s a true urban resort, with Spanish Colonial–style vaulted walkways leading to 12 tennis courts, three pools (including one for families and one with heated saltwater), and two 18-hole golf courses. Golf fans also shouldn’t miss the resort’s Hall of Champions, which features memorabilia from Byron Nelson’s private collection.
Opened at the same time as the hotel, the 16-room Well & Being Spa has the distinction of being the first spa in a Four Seasons hotel, and lives up to the honor with standout facilities like wet and dry saunas, an eight-head Vichy shower, and a thermal area with hot and cold pools. If you’re feeling more active, the 6,000-square-foot gym features indoor–outdoor jogging tracks, AntiGravity yoga, a half-court for basketball, and a schedule of more than 40 fitness classes a week, from barre boot camps to TRX. After all the fun, retire to one of the 431 rooms and suites, which are located in both the main tower and a series of low-rise villas. Each one is outfitted in a residential style and has the perks you’d expect from the brand, but villa options kick it up a notch with fire pits or gas fireplaces, deep-soaking tubs, and views of the pool or golf courses. Come chow time, savor refined, Texas-inspired cuisine at LAW (Land, Air, Water), which highlights the best regional products, or enjoy drinks and casual fare at OUTLAW Taproom, where you can also play pool on an heirloom 1891 table inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
