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
I stayed in RM during my December 2018 X-mas break. I have never travelled to west cost for those kind of activities. So, I was trying to get prepared and asked all possible questions when making reservation. Called multiple times. I felt like reservation people did not really care that I was travelling that far and need all info. I was misinformed about the weather, of course you can not predict but simply advicing that at hiking trips it can be very harsh would be nice, especially when I asked those specific questions. As a result I did not have enough warm clothes (had to buy there later), got really sick and basically my vacation was ruined. As far as food, I did not find good variety for person who did not eat meat. Fish was always cooked horribly, no taste. I felt like the resort was overpriced. Room for single was tiny, no door to bathroom, heater was old and was running very noisy. Bed mattress was like a "swamp", no support, difficult to turn over, I guess was also old (I have never seen those kind in any hotels). RM, you really need improvements for the price you charge!. During reservation I asked and promised room with a mountain view, but was given room faced to the other building. Had to insist to give me the promised one. On positive note, the nature is absolutely stunning, like a different world. Hikes were interesting I liked a lot basically all hiking guides. So, that's why I gave 3 stars, otherwise it would be 2.
I had stayed at Red Mountain resort several times and was recently there in December. They made such a huge error when billing me and handled it so unprofessionally, I will never stay there again.
The front desk customer service representatives were so rude - it has definitely changed since years past. I cannot recommend Red Mountain Resort.
My wife and I went there for a post-Christmas get away and had a great time! We ate all of our meals on-site and took advantage of many of the classes. We especially enjoyed the yoga and cooking classes. The spa was fantastic. My favorite was the " Himalayan hot rock" massage and my wife's favorite was the Red Mountain Revival. We would definitely go back!
Known for it hikes and it doesn’t disappoint. The endurance hikes are non stop action and will test most hikers. Their other 2 levels will meet every outdoors persons needs. Zion and afternoon hikes are more leisurely.Food was excellent for both carnivores and vegetarians ( I am lacto ovo). You could never go hungry. Classes are adequate and gym is complete. Everything from simple rooms to nice suites.Dog friendlySami in dining room remembered my name and that I drank tea. Ian doing the yoga was a patient and knowledgeable teacher.
Only two hours from the lights and bustle of Vegas, this resort offers relaxation and a spectacular view of Utah’s beautiful scenery. Delicious food, quiet evenings and just minutes away from summer theatre. Just a perfect spot.
