A renovation of the 60,000 square feet of event space at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort & Spa in Bastrop, near Austin, Texas, has been completed.

The new design draws in the natural elements surrounding the resort. All ceilings, walls, floors and more got new carpeting, wall coverings, paint, hardware and finishes. Light fixtures also were changed out in the meeting rooms and corridors.

"The hotel's renovated indoor meeting space offers a stunning, functional setting where guests can cultivate meaningful connections and make lasting memories during conferences, retreats, weddings and other events," said Michael Jokovich, general manager of the property and Hyatt's area vice president. "The new look of the space is fresh and classic, and meanwhile conveys the casual elegance that has always defined and distinguished our destination."

The work on the meeting space is part of an ongoing renovation project that began in 2015. Guest-room bathrooms have been upgraded, the Firewheel Cafe kitchen was redone, new menus have been introduced and a chef's herb garden has been planted. The property's Spa Django also was redone. The resort's most luxurious accommodation, the Litton House, now has an upgraded kitchen to service VIP guests and special events. The property's meeting space includes the 16,000-square-foot Lost Pines Grand Ballroom and the 8,000-square-foot Baron's Junior Ballroom. 

The resort also features more than 240,000 square feet of outdoor function space, including pavilions and an amphitheater. Outdoor activities can be enjoyed at the Renegade Trailhead equestrian facility, plus swimming and floating at the Crooked River Water Park, and archery and trap shooting on the grounds. The property abuts the 1,100-acre McKinney Roughs Nature Park, where visitors can enjoy kayaking, rafting, hiking and birding along 18 miles of trails.
