So much I want to say... I entered the property and immediately felt at home. The grounds are well maintained - scenery in neighboring Snow Canyon State Park is beautiful beyond words. I stayed in a Villa - it was described as more luxury than a standard room. For only a few dollars more - the room was beautiful, and privacy was perfect - loved that fireplace, huge bathroom with jetted tub and especially the private balcony. I was travelling alone and felt very comfortable and safe... You can be as active or in as "relax mode" as you want. Daily guided hikes and walks are not to be missed. There was an amazing variety of activities. A few of my favorites - The St. George Art Tour, Yoga in Snow Canyon, Juggling for your brain (very enjoyable - Marc had the personality and energy that made me feel like I could do anything), and the Sound Bath with Jen was a very relaxing meditation Sagestone Spa was amazing - Rachel as spa host was always welcoming and friendly. Spa treatments to try - Red Mountain Revitalizer, Hiker's Massage & Sleep Tonic Massage. Dining was good - breakfast and lunch were mostly buffet style (good variety -calories are listed and you can make some great choices), dinner at the community table was a pleasant experience - there was a wide variety to chose from including a separate vegetarian menu if you ask for it - best advice for dinner - HAVE DESSERT.... 1. "Journey with the ancestors" should be listed as a meditation, it was a good experience but not what I had been expecting and yes, I would go again. 2. enjoying my balcony and the view - there was a family with 2 young children in the hot tub - doing what kids do, yelling, screaming, and running which was terribly disruptive to the overall serenity of the Villas. at other hot tubs - the family would not have disturbed as many people. I know kids have rights too, but this was supposed to be adults only- and while I may be the only one complaining - I am not the only one annoyed. 3. On my last morning, I was enjoying a solitary breakfast (mesquite flour pancakes - delicious) when the server WITHOUT ASKING ME - seated a guest who I had been avoiding for a couple of days. Note to servers - please, please, please ask the person seated BEFORE you seat someone at their table, If given the chance, I would have said "no thanks, I prefer to dine alone this morning" Minor annoyances - they happen. The staff - including the charming groundskeeper who always greeted me - make this a very special place indeed. I've been to some very nice resorts (one in Arizona and one on a lake very close to my home). I have spent a WHOLE LOT more money at the other places, and not been as happy with the overall experience and without being as excited at the prospect of planning a return visit - I am already planning my next visit. There are reasons the majority of the guests are return visitors...…
My girlfriend & I came down for a few days of R & R. This is a perfect place to either exercise, hike, and bike or relax with stretching classes, yoga, hammocks in the sun or pool and spa. There is something for everyone, here!
Red Mountain Resort is a good value for the price point - the food is sufficient (very generous breakfast), a variety of options for hikes and other activities, and I found my king room to be spacious and comfortable. I thought all of the guides were very good. I agree with some of the reviews about the lackluster spa experience, yes there could be improvement for sure. My massage was just okay, and the space itself is not great. That said it's not fair to compare Red Mountain to Canyon Ranch or Miraval. If you want that experience then you have to pay for it. This is a good place for a solo travel, but especially for a group of friends who might have varying budgets and interests including different fitness levels.
I come here for fitness motivation and i always leave inspired. The guests are lovely and friendly so its very easy to arrive as a solo. No matter your fitness level high or low there is never any shaming. Your age and weight never matter the welcome mat is out. Every day that i am here I cant wait to see what wonderful healthy food has been made for me. Sweet, kind, caring staff. How do i live here permanently?
