Located 14 miles up the Colorado River on scenic Hwy 128 from downtown Moab, the hotel is situated beside the river’s best white water rapids, at the foot of dramatic Red rock cliffs. It’s a classic, rugged Western landscape worthy of Hollywood, and was in fact the site of numerous films, including Rio Grande with John Wayne. National Geographic Logo National Geographic Traveler - Red Cliffs Lodge of Moab, Utah has been has been selected by the editors of National Geographic Traveler magazine to be included in the second annual “Stay List”, featuring “129 Hotels We Love.”
While the West is best known for its rugged landscape and hardy adventures, staying at the Red Cliffs Lodge is anything but primitive. Every room at Red Cliffs Lodge has a soothing view of either the Colorado River (just 100 feet away) or Castle Creek, which runs through the property. The scenery is both spectacular and private. In addition, each suite is designed to capture the hardy frontier spirit of the West, with solid log furniture, knotty pine accents and muted stucco palates. But because even the most adventurous traveler craves a little civilization, every suite at the Lodge is stocked with plenty of genteel pleasures. Every suite features a separate kitchenette, coffee pot, refrigerator, microwave, air-conditioning and separate dining area.
After a full day of adventure and exploration, nothing soothes the soul like a hearty meal in an intimate setting. The terraced dining room ensures every guest has a magnificent view of the Colorado River, the Fisher Towers, and the towering red rock cliffs surrounding the Lodge. Shaded patios and decks offer cool dining in a natural setting any time of year. The menu captures traditional Western favorites like Ranch Fried Steak, Barbequed Pork Ribs and Wild Alaskan Keta Salmon.
