Utah is a dream vacation destination. Home to world-renowned resorts with diverse landscapes and luxurious amenities, millions of tourists flock to Utah in search of serenity. The following hotels and resorts are especially perfect for couples who are looking for a well-deserved, relaxing and romantic getaway.
A smaller resort connected to a stunning red-rock golf course, the Inn at Entrada is a desert paradise. Located next to Snow Canyon State Park and near Zion National Park, the resort offers quick access to stunning feats of nature, as well as to romantic isolation and personal peace. In many ways, you could say this resort is an epic juxtaposition of complete luxury in the face of one of the world’s harshest climates.
One of the famed Aman Resorts, Amangiri managed to keep itself a secret for a few years. That is, until people became way too curious. Amangiri is not exactly suited for families, but for couples or individuals who seek restorative seclusion. Near a series of the American west’s most famous national parks, the resort is nevertheless well-hidden and completely otherworldly. By all standards, Amangiri is definitive of elite luxury.
Waldorf Astoria is a household name in luxury resorts, and for good reason. The Park City Waldorf Astoria is (not surprisingly) no exception. There is no question you and your partner will be pampered here as you are simultaneously allowed easy access the entire city and its famed ski resorts.
Sorrel River Ranch & Spa is a favorite amongst couples, mostly because of its premier Moab location, but also because of its unique vibes. You can find all of the serenity in the world here, but the resort also allows both you and your partner to get out of your comfort zones. With acres of open land, farm-to-table meals, and rejuvenating spa services, at Sorrel, it’s hard to say no to adventure.
Capitol Reef Resort oozes of one-of-a-kind adventure. After all, where else can you go hiking with llamas, sleep in Conestoga wagons, or hot tub as you star-gaze into the desert’s dark skies? And if none of that interests you, the resort is also on the doorstep of one of America’s most stunning geological gems: Capitol Reef National Park.
A large boutique hotel, Newpark Resort is less interested in log cabins and more interested in “contemporary luxury.” More affordable and less flashy than other Park City resorts, Newpark is great for couples who want a Park City getaway without too hefty of a price-tag.
A small boutique hotel in downtown Park City, the Washington School House Hotel is something from an issue of Architectural Digest. Built as a school in 1889, the building was only recently transformed into a hotel where “old school is the new cool.” The perfect place for couples to feel cozy and oddly intellectual, the hotel is unlike anything in the state.
With a more intimate atmosphere than any of the resorts in Park City, Sundance Mountain Resort—located about 40 minutes from Park City— is surrounded by equally beautiful scenery. In fact, many find the area prettier than its northern counterpart. With a zip-line, summer theater, ski lift rides, horseback riding, yoga, art studio classes, fine dining and more, the resort is about as luxurious as you can get with double the charm of larger resorts.
A lovely couples retreat, Westgate in Park City offers a variety of overnight accommodations. Their luxury suite, though, stands above the rest. The 360-square-foot room can sleep up to four guests, offers an exceptionally comfortable king-sized bed, kitchenette with granite counter tops, and living area.
