Red Mountain Spa is situated in a beautiful spot, on the edge of a state park. The grounds were lovely, and the staff was eager to please.
St. George's unbridled urban sprawl is creeping towards the resort.
My greatest grievance is that the spa visually markets/suggests that the buildings they depict in their ads are the buildings you stay in. You can stay in those, but they are the Residences and cost more to rent. They're privately owned and unless you pay extra you will actually stay in a nice, but not spectacular, room. These rooms are located in much older buildings designed more like dorms. Outside each room is are old yellow lights that the resort turns on each night. You can't keep your shades open with these lights on, and if you can't keep your shades open you can't wake up to the lovely views. I unscrewed the lightbulbs.
The pillows were not good. Too spongey. Beds were comfy. Air conditioners WAY too noisy. Not Zen.
When you arrive you get a guided tour. The guide gives you raffle tickets and if she pulls your ticket you win a prize, like a free massage, etc. But not everyone wins. So you can end the tour feeling like a punished kid. Not a great way to start your stay!
Hiking program is great. Food is lovely---wine is extra. Hammocks are wonderful. And, as I said, the staff really tries hard. I loved seeing that country, and it was over all a good time.
