Under Canvas, the leader in upscale, outdoor hospitality, has opened the first location of its new, safari-inspired, outdoor resort brand, ULUM, that provides elevated design, exceptional hospitality and refined comfort in the outdoors.
Situated among 200 acres of stunning desert landscape near Moab, Utah, ULUM Moab immerses guests in the American Southwest through unique stays and experiences designed to bridge comfort with the restorative virtues of nature.
“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 & beverage offering all in an exceptionally beautiful location south of Moab”, says Matt Gaghen, CEO of Under Canvas, in a statement. “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.”
The new resort brand experience offers all-suite, safari-inspired accommodation tents along with luxury hotel amenities, such as dipping pools, upscale dining and complimentary, wellness-focused programming. The desert retreat also provides endless opportunities for adventure with easy access to Utah’s largest national park, Canyonlands National Park, and the awe-inspiring Arches National Park.
Each of ULUM Moab’s spacious, 360-square-foot Suite Tents feature a private deck, a luxurious bedroom with a king-size bed, an ensuite bathroom with rain shower, a lounge area with West Elm furnishings and a queen-size sofa-bed, cooling fans, wood stoves, organic materials and, most importantly, uninhibited views of the natural surroundings.
ULUM Moab’s exceptional culinary experience includes full service, al fresco dining with a fresh, seasonal menu highlighting Southwest-inspired flavors and sustainable ingredients; craft cocktails inspired by local flora; and an onsite cafe featuring premium hot and cold espresso beverages, fresh juice and smoothie options and grab ‘n go lunch offerings. The resort also offers artisan chocolates and marshmallows for nightly s’mores under the stars.
Resort programming includes complimentary yoga instruction; evening stargazing; onsite hiking; live, acoustic music; evening s’mores by the terraced firepits; and one-of-a-kind excursions with trusted, local outfitters for world-class white-water rafting, rock-climbing, guided national park tours and local hikes for self-discovery.
