Nestled on the outskirts of St George near Snow Canyon State Park, lava fields and Red Cliffs National Conservation Area, you’ll find Red Mountain Resort — the perfect location for an adventure inspired stay.
Each day you can enjoy several hikes or other adventures, like my favorite, yoga in the canyon where you’ll breathe in the fresh air and gaze at the red rocks. My second favorite activity was the sunrise hike, it’s well worth the early wake up call. If you are fortunate enough to be there on a full moon you can also see the moon setting over the mountains. You won’t ever be bored with the view or the list of daily activities.
Red Mountain Resort has a spa on site for all your relaxation needs, including a massage specific to hikers. The Himalayan Salt Stone was my choice and it was perfect for relaxing my sore muscles yet energizing my entire being. Make sure to arrive early to the spa to take in the view and enjoy the steam room.
There are three hot tubs and three pools on-site, one of them indoors. Red Mountain Resort also has a wellness center offering indoor or covered activities like pilates, Zumba, meditation, barre, tai chi and aqua strength. If that’s not enough, they also offer life coaching, reiki, acupuncture, photography classes, portrait sessions and wellness assessments. This resort has it all for enhancing your mind and body wellness.
The villas are spacious and comfortable for you and your family (kids 12 and up), or you and your friends. There’s a great room with a fantastic couch, two full bathrooms and a bedroom. If it’s just you travelling and you don’t want all that space, they do offer smaller rooms.
On-site dining is incredible and healthy, serving three meals a day. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style unless you prefer to get your eggs made a different way. Dinner offers a three-course menu with soup and salad bar. Enjoy what’s offered — like halibut curry or salmon and greens — but the staff are amazingly accommodating if you need to switch something out on the menu. They want to make sure you get what you need, enjoy the flavors, and replenish your energy for all your activities while keeping your wellness goals in mind.
The resort offers packages that include adventures and meals so you won’t have to worry about paying extra for anything you don’t want to. But of course there are plenty of extras, like the canyon-view yoga —- a must at Red Mountain. This is a place to not only be revitalized but also to be inspired. At Red Mountain they truly want you to leave better than when you came — so much so that they have many repeat guests. And it’s not just the guests that stick around, the staff also love this place and it shows. Red Mountain Resort is the place to enjoy nature and nurture for your mind, body and spirit year after year.
