Galveston Island Luxury Travel Itinerary


Arrive by Helicopter & Enjoy The Villas at The San Luis Resort
For a truly luxurious experience, book a stay at The Villas at The San Luis Resort. These five private 800-square-feet villas are nestled in a quiet corner of the iconic San Luis Resort, offering a discreet residential setting complete with private in-room check-in. Every villa suite is accessible only through an exclusive entrance and features a king-sized bedroom, three TVs, a deluxe five-fixture bathroom outfitted with a large shower and soaking tub, a private veranda with a hot tub, separate pool area and personal butler service. Unique to The Villas, guests have the option to upgrade their travel arrangements and arrive via luxury helicopter or limousine!

Relax with the “J-Lo Treatment” at Spa San Luis
To experience Galveston like Jennifer Lopez did while filming an episode of American Idol in 2012, schedule an in-room, 90-minute tandem massage. Spa San Luis offers relaxation, deep tissue and seashell massages for individuals or couples in the comfort of your own room. Try a botanical blend aromatherapy enhancement to take your relaxation to the next level!

Get Adventurous With Over-the-top Sea Excursions
For luxury on the water, get adventurous with over-the-top sea excursions. Parasail over the Gulf of Mexico up to 500 feet above the water. Dive to the Flower Garden Banks – a spectacular coral reef nestled 100 miles off the coast containing more coral than what is found off the Florida Keys. Or, take a private yacht charter to explore the island’s waters with a full-service staff.

Discover Old-World Charm in Historic Downtown Galveston
Old-world charm isn’t hard to find in Galveston and there is no place quite as charming as the Victorian era historic downtown district. Here, majestic iron-front buildings house unique boutiques, coastal-inspired art galleries and plenty of entertainment. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride throughout the district then stroll Postoffice Street for art viewing and antique shopping. Have drinks at The Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House for romantic views of Galveston Harbor then catch a live show with box seats at The Grand 1894 Opera House.

Golf with Beautiful Views & Texas Tradition
Golfing fans have two fabulous options to hit the green in Galveston. The Galveston Country Club – the oldest in Texas – offers a quiet oasis nestled along west Galveston Bay. This 120-acre property is laden with lush greenery and palm trees providing a relaxing day on the course. Also on the West End of the island, golfers can experience the Moody Gardens Golf Course, a resort-style course featuring views of the Moody Gardens pyramids and an award-winning design that has been featured in Golf Magazine.

Feast Like a Royal
Fine dining in Galveston surely won’t disappoint! Indulge with a dinner at Rudy & Paco Restaurant – listed on OpenTable’s list of the top 100 Best Restaurants in America. The restaurant is known for its Central American twist on steaks and seafood. For one of the best steakhouses in Texas, make a reservation at The Steakhouse, featuring USDA Midwest grain-fed beef, live Maine lobster and an award-winning wine list. Other top-notch restaurants include Number 13, and Shearn’s Seafood & Prime Steaks.

Take a Moonlit Bentley Ride Along the Beach
After watching a gorgeous Galveston Island sunset, take a moonlit drive in The San Luis Resort’s private Bentley for unbeatable views of the beachfront along the island’s famous Seawall Boulevard. There’s nothing like enjoying a late night sea breeze while riding in ultimate comfort and style! This experience is available as part of special packages offered by the resort.
