Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa – Gateway, Colorado
From £295 or $377 per night (November 2020, Booking.com)
The Gateway is in the most breathtaking setting – Colorado’s Red Rock Canyons. The resort sits in Unaweep Canyon, an area that is relatively untouched by humans. Here, you can have a uniquely all-American experience, with activities including hiking, shooting, and horseback riding at the Palisade Ranch.
Guests can stay in their own Casita (meaning ‘small house’) which comes fully equipped with a private fire pit and stone tiled outdoor shower. They come in sizes to suit any size group, and are ideal for a trip with the whole family. After your day of adventures, there are plenty of on-site restaurants to choose from. The Entrada restaurant is in a serene location on the outdoor patio while the Paradox Grille is great for a fun lunch with the family.
If you’re looking for something a little more intimate, the resort offers the chance to have a private dining experience under the stars. This is certainly a cinematic experience for guests, who can choose to dine by a gorgeous pond or at the resorts scenic amphitheater. All of this while experiencing the beauty of the National Parks, with a landscape that will make you feel like you’re on Mars.
