Melt away holiday stress at this luxe resort that's just a few hours from Fort Worth
Despite all its sparkly decorations, delicious food, and festive excitement, the holidays can also be an intense and stressful time. Family comes into town. Children go crazy over sugar and gifts. The mall is packed with frenzied shoppers. So why not take some time to escape the madness? Choctaw Casino & Resort–Durant is the ideal place to relax and refresh during the holiday season.
Perhaps you're looking for a quick pre-Thanksgiving getaway, or the chance to steal away before all the Christmas events really ramp up. No matter when you carve out the time, Choctaw has plenty of ways to blow off steam. The resort's gorgeous hotel rooms offer incredible bathrooms, outfitted with deep tubs that are just begging for an uninterrupted bubble bath (stay in the Spa Tower for an extra touch of luxury). You won’t have to make your own bed or clean your own bathroom the entire time you're there.
Choctaw is an AAA Four Diamond entertainment destination, so you won’t have to worry about anything but having fun and unwinding while you’re there. And it wouldn’t be a casino without games, so make sure you come ready to play. A round of slots or blackjack is the right medicine to get your mind off the in-laws, and if you want to step away from the cards for a while, there are plenty of places to grab a drink around the tables. Who knows? Maybe you’ll make a few bucks and can pad your holiday shopping fund.
The resort boasts 12 onsite restaurants, so you’ll definitely be well-fed during your stay. And the best part is that you don't have to do any of the cooking (or dishes). Offerings include 1832 Steakhouse, where you can order up the perfect cut of meat; Bamboo Noodle Bar, to satisfy your Asian cuisine cravings; and La Cantina, for your taco and tequila fix.
"Me time" might be hard to come by around the holidays, but it's ready and waiting at Choctaw Casino & Resort–Durant's spa. Escape reality for a while through a massage, facial, manicure, pedicure, or selection of body treatments. Registered guests can use the fitness center, lounge areas, steam room, and whirlpools for a daily resort fee. In-room spa serves and spa parties are also available.
During the season of giving, give yourself permission to rest and relax at Choctaw Casino & Resort–Durant — it'll definitely help you get on the "nice" list.
