Sprawling Southwestern Resort on Desert Hillside
Three massive regions meet near St. George, Utah—the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin Desert, and the Mojave Desert—creating a strikingly diverse terrain. Here you’ll find red-rock cliffs, pine-forested mountains, and desert flora. The terrain also reflects millions of years of geological upheaval, as many of the city's canyons and caves were forged by flowing lava. Coral Springs Resort is situated in the heart of St. George's breathtaking, eons-old landscape, with rugged boulders and succulent plants dotting the property. Although the resort offers luxurious amenities for relaxing, visitors often use the property as a jumping-off point to the area’s natural attractions, especially Zion National Park about 45 miles east.
The resort’s posh interiors incorporate a southwestern Utah aesthetic with flagstone fireplaces and a sandy color palette that reflects the surrounding geography. Two- or three-bedroom suites sleep up to 10 or 12 and are equipped with gourmet kitchens, marble bathrooms, and jetted tubs. You can kick back on the suede couches and watch movies with the room's Google TV or head outside by the fireplace for sweeping mountain views. The resort also boasts a year-round, heated pool and tennis and basketball courts.
St. George, Utah: Old West Town near Zion National Park
St. George is located within southwest Utah’s Dixie region, named for a scheme to grow cotton here in response to a post-Civil War crop shortage. The soil yielded little cotton, but St. George is still known for its landscape, characterized by ruddy soil and sandstone bluffs. Thanks to its varied terrain, St. George is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, who rappel down the Virgin River Gorge and mountain bike along the Santa Clara River Preserve.
Downtown St. George features unique relics from the city's past as a pioneer town. In the summer, costumed performers entertain tourists at the former winter home of Brigham Young. Notorious Old West outlaws are said to have done time at the old town jail, just steps away at the center of Ancestor Square. Despite its historical buildings, the downtown area is home to plenty of contemporary attractions, including Main Street’s art galleries and pottery studios.
Located about an hour east, Zion National Park draws about around 2.6 million visitors annually to its dramatic canyons and limestone cliffs. Kolob Arch, one of the world’s longest natural arches, is located near the Kolob Canyons at the northern end of the park. Those hiking around the park may see peregrine falcons, mexican spotted owls, desert bighorn sheep, and desert tortoises.
