It’s not often that a place takes your breath away. Travel + Leisure has named Colorado's Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa the top resort in the West. Five canyons and two creeks surround this exceptional place in Colorado; with nothing but nature, rock palisades and blue sky in the middle of " nowhere."
Create your own stay packages with room options and experiences. Tops are the western-style casitas with private patios and outdoor whirlpool tubs. Dining is divine and fresh.
For your discovery, John Hendricks the owner (You may know the Discovery Channel? It's his baby) provides lots of options. You can drive luxury cars, drive UTV's, hike, skeet shoot, take a heli-tour of the area, ride a horse at the ranch or ride the track with a pro-Baja driver, visit his exceptional car museum, hunt dinosaur tracks with an archaeologist, visit the spa or simply relax. Imagine a night under the stars with a view of the same red-rock palisade topography the dinosaurs might have wandered?
