I spent five days at Red Mountain at the recommendation of a dear friend who was a convert to this desert oasis. It's easy to see why she made this an annual pilgrimage from Toronto every year.
From the moment I stepped out of the shuttle and breathed in the dry, cleansing desert air, I felt like I was home. It was my first time to the desert, outside of Vegas that is, and the colours are phenomenal.
The daily activities are plentiful, varied, and cater to all levels. I enjoyed first rate hiking at an advanced pace but also did an amazing meditation hike with Bud. Yoga, Cycling, aquafit, it's all yours to fit it...or you can spend some time in the spa or by the pool.
RMR is a not only has amazing staff and facilities, the food and accommodation are also great. Incredibly wide selection of food, all incredibly healthy and delicious...even by a foodie's standard.
I went as a solo traveller, but it's very easy to meet up with others at the communal table, or on hikes--or not-- it's up to you. I would go back in a heartbeat.
