This Safari-Style Hotel Offers Rain Showers and Private Plunge Pools (Plus, Stunning Views of Moab)
Under Canvas launched a new brand called ULUM and it’s their most extravagant adventure offering yet.
Under Canvas, known for their stunning safari-style accommodations located near national parklands, announced the arrival of a new high-design resort called ULUM, located just steps from Looking Glass Arch in Moab, Utah. Set to open in March of 2023, the property is situated on 200 acres of ochre desert landscape surrounded by 100-foot cliffs on three sides and boasts panoramic views of Canyonlands National Park.
The resort will be made of up of all-suite, safari-inspired accommodation tents that mimic a luxury hotel experience including hot and cold dipping pools, upscale all-day dining, fire pits, and a yoga deck.
“ULUM introduces a higher level of comfort in nature, taking the very best of Under Canvas and adding refinements,” said Matt Gaghen, chief executive officer of Under Canvas. “With more than a decade of experience providing exceptional hospitality in remote environments paired with heightened demand to explore amazing destinations like Moab made it the perfect time for us to introduce a new concept that will inspire both existing and new guests alike.”
The design of the property plays off the natural beauty of the area, known for its world class world-class hiking and biking trails, white-water rafting, and canyoneering. Nature-inspired, organic materials throughout the hotel include local stone and natural wood, with the entry revealing a custom crafted chandelier made entirely of ancient rock fragments from the site. There are some unique sustainability points in place, too. Walls were made with recycled paper board, and shower basins and sinks employ carbon sequestration to minimize carbon footprint. The resort also utilizes International Dark Sky standards throughout their development process to mitigate light pollution and maximize Moab’s gorgeous night sky.
Resort programming will include complimentary yoga, stargazing, onsite hiking, live music, and gourmet s’mores over the firepit once the sun goes down. They’ll also have an on-staff Adventure Concierge tasked with connecting guests with trusted local outfitters in the area for their outdoors activities.
Keeping with the theme of luxury, the suites boast modern amenities like plush Parachute linens and robes, and a lounge area with West Elm furnishings, rain showers, polished concrete sinks, and Aesop bath products. Another point of differentiation from the other Under Canvas properties is the elevated all-day dining option. Their restaurant will serve a seasonal menu of Southwest inspired flavors. Plus, there are Rivian Waypoints Level 2 chargers on site for juicing up e-vehicles.
Rates start from $549 per night and are available to book now on their site.
