The Kayenta Community, in southern Utah's red rock country, is a tranquil enclave surrounded by protected lands.A 2,000 acre master planned community of fine homes, custom building sites and community amenities, is located 7 miles west of St. George, Utah. Kayenta is a unique departure from the norm, focused on moderate land use, moderate-sustainable growth, and an appreciation for our magnificent natural setting. Nearby, residents find adventure in the southwest's abundance of places to explore. Zion National Park, Snow Canyon and Bryce Canyon National Park are within view. While just beyond the horizon, adventure seekers will discover places like the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Las Vegas.

Kayenta is a quiet intimate community with Red Mountain as its backdrop. It has an art village and a quaint restaurant called Xetava. You'll find a maze to walk and many trails, along with a reservoir to swim in. It's a beautiful place!

It's mainly a residential community but there's a small restaurant and a few shops and art galleries to enjoy and of course the view of the red mountains. Go there for lunch or dinner. Enjoy the view and the stars at night. Very quiet and peaceful:)

We have watched the growth of this little community over the years. It has created a balance between the natural beauty of the area and man-made architecture and art. Has a Santa Fe fee of to it

We stop here frequently when driving into St George. The artist community is interesting and the food at the restaurant is good. We enjoy the sidewalk art display every year.

If you enjoy art and beautiful scenery, take the time to drive out to Kayenta. The works displayed there are good pieces, and in particular there is an artist that makes 'kinetic wind sculptures'. They're not wind chimes, as they do not make any noise, but they are beautiful pieces to watch as the wind gently moves the sculptures. There... More

A small village of Southwest adobe style architecture. Expensive homes with natural desert type landscaping. Have friends that moved here several years ago. They also like the architecture but find the distance to stores and town to be a real pain. The only people they see in the village are tourists and a handful of locals. They are happy there...

Kayenta is a small residential community, mostly retired, that harbors the Kayenta Art Village. It´s tiny and you can walk it in 5 minutes. There are some desert style artwork shops and a restaurant. You can also find 3D chalk drawings on the sidewalks.

The Kayenta Community is a nice little town just outside of St. George. It has has a beautiful red rock backdrop and a distinctive Non-Utah feel. In the main town center, they have a small cafe and a few art galleries (most were closed when we visited). They also have a meditation labyrinth and a small sculpture garden.
