Daily Staff Report

GATEWAY, Colo. – Guests are invited to slip away and take advantage of a limited time offer to experience the quiet intimacy of Gateway Canyons Resort, an adventure retreat fringing on the border of the Moab desert and located in the heart of the red rock canyons, with a rate starting at $199/night, available now through April 15, 2012.

The Gateway Canyons Resort is about a 3 1/2-hour drive from Vail.

Visitors stretch their vacation dollar in Western Colorado with a price that also includes a continental breakfast for two and a pair of tickets to visit the award-winning Gateway Colorado Auto Museum, which features a pristine collection of rare and classic American cars.

Comfortable and spacious accommodations are standard at the Kiva Lodge, boasting breathtaking views of the Palisade rock formation and the vast lands surrounding the resort. Guests wake up feeling refreshed, peering out the window as the sun illuminates shades of amber and sepia tones across the canyon floor, taking a moment to pause and contemplate their choice of adventure for the day. With a choice to travel by foot or horseback, explorers are inspired to discover the picturesque desert showcased throughout the heart of the Unaweep Canyon, while those in need of true relaxation are tempted to spend the afternoon at The Spa, indulging in the resort’s signature treatment, the Kokopelli Soother, which combines an all-natural body scrub, nourishing hydration wrap and customized body massage.

Edging the Colorado/Utah border and cradled in the shadow of the Palisade rock formation, Gateway Canyons Resort is an adventure retreat that invites guests to experience a transformation amongst the inspirational beauty of the red rock canyons. With comfortable accommodations that offer breathtaking views, visitors reconnect with loved ones by creating new memories with seasonal activities offered through the on-site Adventure Center, wellness-focused treatments at The Spa, access to more than 100 years of automotive history at the Gateway Colorado Auto Museum, as well as a visit to The Stables, a first-class equestrian center set in the heart of Unaweep Canyon.
