SAN ANTONIO – A fire destroyed the 10,000-square-foot spa at Boerne’s Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort, once owned by country music legend George Strait.

A spokesperson for the City of Boerne said the fire was reported by a security guard who noticed smoke in video from the building’s security cameras.

Firefighters from Boerne, Leon Springs, Bergheim and Comfort Fire-Rescue responded to the call but the building is considered to be a total loss.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The 220-acre resort recently completed renovations following a 2017 blaze that destroyed its clubhouse.

It reopened in 2019 with changes like a redesign of its restaurant, La Cascada Table & Bar, and renovated guest rooms, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

A new 35,000-square-foot clubhouse was also added recently.

Strait became one of the owners of the resort in 2011, but in June 2022, Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort was added under the management of Crescent Hotels & Resorts.

Crescent Hotels & Resorts is operating Tapatio Springs under its Latitudes: Lifestyles by Crescent division.

New management told SABJ that Strait is no longer in the resort’s ownership group.
