Red Mountain Resort’s coppery adobe campus blends beautifully into the Mars-like landscape of southern Utah. On 50 acres on the outskirts of the outdoorsy town of St. George, this destination spa has a vibe of natural wholesomeness spiked with a good shot of adrenaline. The buildings wander over fifty-five acres of black-lava gardens and mesquite dotted with a hammock here, a stone carving there.
Bed & Bath
The property still sparkles from a 2006 renovation, with 82 guestrooms in five two-story buildings setting a soothing tone with white walls, dark woods and sleek lines. Twenty-four two-bedroom villas surrounding a pool offer huge rooms and have kitchenettes. Accents in cinnamon and umber, copper and clay reflect the hotel’s surroundings. Bathrooms have double sinks and shower-tub combos with thoughtful touches like candles and exfoliating sponges.
The 2006 renovation also added a $1.5 million spa under a geodesic dome with superb mesa views. There are fitness classes (yoga, tai chi, Pilates, cardio dance) to complement the hotel’s hiking offerings (choose between guided hikes or explore on your own). Grab picnic provisions at the casual Canyon Counter or refuel over the satisfying, healthy fare at the Canyon Breeze Restaurant. In lieu of skimpy spa portions, you’ll find hearty options like char-grilled wild salmon with apple avocado pico de gallo on sweet warmed cole slaw, served outdoors or perhaps in beside the large, double-sided fireplace.
How to Get There
Wow! I did not know this place even existed. If you live in Las Vegas and you want to stay Quetion you need to go to the Red Mountain Resort. Probably the most comfortable bed I ever slept on in a hotel. But this is not a hotel, this is a resort! Some of the pillows were firm some were very soft. It was perfect for us. I do not recall if there was a TV in the room because we were quite busy. The activities are wonderful, pricey but worth the pampering. Live acoustic music was awesome.
The lunch menu varies daily. But what we ate for lunch was simply delicious. Barbecue chicken and beef, maple chipotle baked beans, a garlic grilled portobello mushroom, artichoke hearts and tomatoes.
However, I was disappointed in the volume of food for dinner. The quail was small as quail tend to be but was tasty. But the veggies On the quail were a bit sharp. My strip loin was rather small as it was sliced into thin slices surrounding a bed of rice.
I honestly didn't have this place on my radar but so I was happy when I met a fellow traveler heading that way for a conference. The location is great close to the snow canyon so easy to go for hikes. I loved the food in the restaurant
The gym and the pools are a welcome addition. love the fact they gave me a backpack with the water bottles. Only downside is the constant sound of the insects and the hike I went for wasn't really worth the fee in my opinion
Staff was amazing would readily go back
Had the best skiing holiday ever at red mountain great place with not too many people. mixed terrain but mostly experienced intermediate to expert. Will definitely be back here only downside was I stayed in trail without a car this was an extra hassle stayed at the best Western nice hotel comfortable bed and good selection at breakfast. But just to far from the ski hill . Would probably have stayed at the prestige if I'd thought more about it. The only thing that put me off staying at the prestige was that the don't serve breakfast which makes a lot of difference when you are skiing all day you need a hearty start. Thanks again all at red mountain.
