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
Weather was great for hikes definitely had to layer up, since it was fall at this period (end November). The staff was very professional and helpful. Food was very healthy and had a lot of tasty options. The activities and hike were suitable for people of all ages, since the resort offers different hiking levels and tries to show you different trails during your stay. I will definitely comeback! Also, this resort is very suitable for solo travelers, the staff doesn't leave anyone behind :)
My third time and certainly not my last time. In stunning scenery RMR takes you back to live an active lifestyle while soothing you mind and soul in the many classes that are being offered. The guides are phenomenal, we just loved every second there. Met wonderful, very like-minded people and it was such fun! And nothing can beat the food - outstanding culinary experience !
I loved everything about this place: located just outside the Snow Canyon State Park; excellent healthy food with lots of options to choose from; great spa services; indoor/outdoor pool; lots of fitness classes all day long; nice gym; and extremely nice people all around. I hope to go back sometime soon!
We enjoyed 4 days in this well run resort one hour from Zion. Zion is spectacular and so is the entire local environment. We particularly recommend the hikes organized by the resort. We took a day-long hiking tour of Zion which was very memorable. There are things to see and do on your own as well - like hiking the trail to the amazing ancient petroglyphs.
Rooms are fine - decent size, but not luxurious. Staff is friendly and helpful and very accommodating to dietary needs.
Great Trip. The resort was beautiful and offered a variety of things to do. I stayed in Dragon Fly solo and the room was perfect. The hiking was epic and more than I expected. I was nervous about a solo trip but I met some great people and felt very comfortable. All of the staff was friendly and helpful.
