Home to both Arches and Canyonlands National Park, Moab has always held an almost mythical quality to it. An adventure lovers paradise, the rugged landscapes and vast desert expanse found along this stretch of the American Southwest will be getting a serious accommodation upgrade with the opening of a brand new glamping resort called ULUM.
In an announcement made by luxury outdoor hospitality company Under Canvas today, ULUM will join as a new brand within the Under Canvas portfolio, and they’re now accepting reservations for stays starting March 30.
“ULUM introduces a higher level of comfort in nature, taking the very best of Under Canvas and adding refinements such as a contemporary view lobby, upscale residential design, dipping pools, and an expansive food and beverage offering all in an exceptionally beautiful location south of Moab” Chief Executive Officer of Under Canvas Matt Gaghen said in a statement.
Featuring 50 all-suite glamping tents and hot and cold dipping pools, surrounded by 200-acres of Moab’s striking desert landscapes, the resort is engulfed within 100-foot cliffs on three sides while allowing direct access and views over Canyonlands National Park and Moab’s iconic Looking Glass Arch.
On-site, ULUM’s Adventure Concierge will be on-hand to connect guests with local outfitters for activities ranging from white water rafting, rock-climbing, guided national park tours and local hikes.
Every morning, guests will awaken to the smell of burning white copal, a natural resin used in Mayan ceremonies coming from the camps communal area where a daily ritual of greeting the morning sun.
A full breakfast and dinner menu will be served al-fresco and include a seasonally inspired menu that incorporates flavors and ingredients found throughout the American southwest. Craft cocktails that incorporate sage, juniper and prickly pear will also be available, and an onsite cafe will offer a variety of hot and cold espresso beverages, fresh juices, smoothies and grab and go lunch.
Among some of the highlights here (in addition to the locale) are the included complimentary yoga and stargazing, as well as live acoustic music and evening s’mores by the terraced fire-pits.
“Our tenure and reputation as leaders in the outdoor resort space — 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,” Gaghen said.
ULUM will open in March 2023 with rates starting at $549 per night.
