At our stunning location, nestled along lava flows, desert plants and ancient dunes, Mother Nature’s gifts are always on full display. While spending Thanksgiving with us, take the opportunity to appreciate the world around you – not just this day, but every day.
The beauty of a southern Utah sunrise is well worth arising a bit early. The east-facing patio of our new Welcome Pavilion provides tranquility and the perfect viewpoint as the first rays of dawn peek over the cliffs. The red sandstone comes alight, bathed in a warm glow. This is the ideal time to take a quiet walk on Inspiration Trail or through the Labyrinth.

- A Sound Bath of Love, Gratitude and Relaxation – 8 pm
There is much to be grateful for. Join us for an evening of deep breathing, sound vibration and meditation as you allow yourself to become absorbed in the present moment and cultivate gratitude for all that you have attracted into your life at this time. Allow the sounds to carry your awareness to your breath and feel gratitude for this very breath that sustains you.
With so many activities to choose from on our daily schedule, trying to experience everything can become overwhelming. Whether you’re traveling solo, with a significant other or a group of friends, take some time alone to reflect.
Our Traveler’s Notebook is designed for journaling: collect written thoughts, pinches of red sand or sprigs of sage. Do you hear the quail and canyon wren calling? Smell the rich earth? Feel the energy coursing through the air? There’s plenty to be thankful for indeed.
