Honey Bees

The Woodlands Resort Honey Bees

The five bee hives at the Resort are always buzzing. They have prospered with the assistance of our local partner Bee Harmony who continues to watch over their honey-making endeavors. Guests can enjoy some of this special nectar in select dishes, cocktails, and spa treatments.

We invite you to try the honey at Robard’s Steakhouse served on the Artisinal cheese platter, or in the Spa’s Green Tea Pedicure.

We hope to be adding guest beekeeping experiences in the coming future.
