Under Canvas Grand Canyon

Why we love it: a glamping resort on 160 acres of piñon and juniper forest, close to the Grand Canyon’s south rim entrance

- a Zen garden
- an adventure concierge
- a pet-friendly property

The review: Open from early April to mid-November, this resort pitches luxurious safari-style tents on the striking pink and scarlet desert. Each has a woodstove, private deck, and an en-suite bathroom. Couples or close companions can opt for the Stargazer class, which has a king-sized bed under an arched viewing window! Suites sleep add leather couches with queen-sized foldouts; upgrade to one with a “hive” (teepee-style tent) sheltering two twin beds. Camp cots can accommodate additional kids.

This resort goes light on the brick and mortar, but delivers plenty of rustic charm and modern conveniences. Expect daily housekeeping, organic bath products, and USB battery packs.

Amenities include complimentary camp activities and s’mores for the fire pit. An adventure concierge can arrange hikes, mountain biking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, and canyon helicopter tours. They also book jeep safaris into the Kaibab National Forest, exploring a landscape populated by elk, turkey, Native petroglyphs, old stagecoach trails, and of course the area’s spectacular geology.

Breakfast swings from a bacon egg sandwich to a kale-soyrizo breakfast burrito with scrambled tofu, while boxed lunch options include a charcuterie bento. Under Canvas comes into its culinary own at dinner, serving dishes like pan-roasted trout, bruschetta grilled chicken, and a superfood quinoa salad.
