The Inn at Dos Brisas

The Inn at Dos Brisas is located 1 hour from Houston and is a member of the prestigious organization Relais&Chateaux. Based on my experience with Relais&Chateaux in the past I arrived in Inn at Dos Brisas with high expectations. R&C is not a brand, but a collection of unique independent hotel experiences all round the world. Just what I am looking for. The Inn at Dos Brisas is at the moment one of the smallest Relais&Chateaux in the world with only 4 rooms, which all is casitas. They are currently building new casitas and the owners have very impressive plans with this hotel. Back to my experience. I arrived in the hotel where their new general manager Brent welcomed me. After a drink and a talk I was escorted to my Casitas and it was great. Comfortable bed, fireplace and champagne. The minibar is fully stocked with both drinks and snacks and it’s all complimentary.

For the first time in my life I had my own golf cart and it was excellent to get around the property which is 330 acres. It’s a very peaceful and beautiful place and like the other Relais&Chataeux it’s “unique in this world”. What makes it truly great is the service and food. The staff is fantastic and attentive to details.

The restaurant is Forbes 5 star and people are driving hours to experience it. I understand why. Recently Craig Shelton joined the property and I will be surprised if this restaurant haven’t got further recognition when my book is published. I would say the same about the hotel. The hotel have massive potential and with the new casitas this is an experience not to be missed. Overall highly recommended. It does not feel like a hotel, but as staying in a good friends house. Unique and a hotel to visit again and again.

My opinion: Great+ experience.
