15 Perfect Utah Getaways!

There is plenty of opportunity for an unforgettable getaway in the Beehive State. From the romance of red rock to resorts with stunning mountain views, the following 15 Utah getaway ideas are sure to enchant even the pickiest of vacationers. 

Utah Shakespeare Festival, Cedar City, UT

Every year, the Utah Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City attracts hundreds for its exciting ambience and ample entertainment. If you’re a theater buff, this event is perfect for you. A host of hotels in Cedar City and plenty of nearby outdoor opportunity make this an ideal getaway. 

Sundance Mountain Resort, Provo Canyon, UT

Located just 20 minutes from Provo, Utah, Sundance Mountain Resort is an intimate resort nestled in the majesty of Mount Timpanogos. With skiing in the winter and mountain biking, hiking, and other outdoor activities in the summer, spring, and fall, this resort is overwhelmingly beautiful in its own efforts to be underwhelming. 

Sundance Film Festival, Park City, UT

Utah in winter is the top destination for film buffs, given the world-renowned Sundance Film Festival which takes place every year in Park City. Smack dab in the middle of ski season, the festival attracts thousands and the array of fantastic Park City hotels fit diverse needs. If you’re seeking excitement, entertainment, and cozy evenings next to a bustling fire, this festival warrants your well-earned vacation. 

The Waldorf Astoria, Park City, UT

A potential lodging option for the Sundance Film Festival, the Waldorf Astoria in Park City has become a staple in luxury Utah accommodation. Fluffy bathrobes and champagne included, a few days at the Waldorf and you’ll feel incredibly relaxed. 

Amangiri Resort, Canyon Point, UT

On the higher end of the monetary spectrum, the ever-mysterious Amangiri Resort at an unspecified location in Southern Utah is king in luxury. With beautiful architecture that appears a part of the harsh Southern Utah landscape, the hotel is, in and of itself, a masterpiece to behold and a sure-fire way to ensure a wonderful getaway. 

Sorrel River Ranch and Spa, Moab, UT

Interested in Moab’s famous tourist destinations but uninterested in camping? The Sorrel River Ranch and Spa gives the illusion of an outdoor, rustic experience with all the bells and whistles of a high-class hotel. 

The Homestead Resort, Midway, UT

Built adjacent to some natural hot springs, the Homestead Resort in Midway is practically a historic establishment. You can swim in the nearby crater (don’t worry, it’s warm!) and enjoy the down-home vibes of this lovely, all-American resort.  

Snowbird Resort, Little Cottonwood Canyon, UT

Ski vacations can be extremely pricey, but Snowbird Resort offers packages for a spectrum of budgets. Sure, the resort is more industrial than ostensibly fancy, but that doesn’t mean it skimps on luxury.  

BYU Aspen Grove, Provo Canyon, UT

Depending on the type of getaway you desire, BYU Aspen Grove is the perfect spot for a family retreat or even an organized family reunion. With on-site group activities, plenty of hiking, and an arrestingly beautiful setting, BYU Aspen Grove is all about adventure. 

The Grand America Hotel, Salt Lake City, UT

Urban getaways can also be welcome respite from the doldrums of life, and in Utah, Salt Lake City is about as urban as it gets. The Grand America Hotel is also Salt Lake’s most elaborate resort with Italian marble bathrooms, chandeliers aplenty, and a world-class European-style spa. 

Castle Creek Inn, Cottonwood Heights, UT

Another more urban retreat, Castle Creek Inn feels like it’s straight out of the French countryside. Never mind the fact that it’s also a mere half hour from a variety of world-class ski resorts. 

Skyridge Inn, Torrey, UT

If you don’t want to leave the comfort of a tasteful home but still want to enjoy the inherent splendor of Capitol Reef National Park, the Skyridge Inn was built just for you. It makes for the homiest of getaways in a natural environment so far from home. 

The Crescent Moon Inn, Kayenta, UT

Located in the desert community of Kayenta, Utah, the Crescent Moon Inn is a desert getaway without all the traditionally touristy Southern Utah attractions. Of course, you can venture out to see Utah’s famous national parks, but this hotel alone offers all you need for a peaceful Southern Utah getaway. 

Sunflower Hill Inn, Moab, UT

It’s a Cape Cod style home smack dab in the middle of red rock country. What could be stranger? And yet more appealing? Located near Arches National Park and a host of other spectacular sites, the Sunflower Hill Inn is a refreshing choice for a Southern Utah vacation. 

Westgate Park City Resort and Spa, Park City, UT

Another one of Park City’s top luxury resorts, the Westgate Park City Resort and Spa offers a traditional getaway in one of the West’s most beautiful and exciting locations. This resort screams world-class hospitality and practically guarantees a successful getaway.
