About Us

Edging the Colorado/Utah border and cradled in the shadow of the Palisade rock formation, Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks introduces Gateway Canyons, the world';s first and only discovery resort, created to nourish guests'; curiosity through the art of discovery and adventure within a naturally intriguing environment.
Just steps away from one of the highest concentrations of dinosaur fossils on the planet, Gateway Canyons Resort is a place where the earth opens up to tell its story, inviting guests to explore the wonders of the natural world while delighting in luxury accommodations and once in a lifetime experiences.
With more than 6,000 acres of natural splendor to explore at its most primitive state - including one of the only locations in the world where Precambrian rock is still visble by the human eye, guests temporarily pause the mass mayhem of their lives, take a deep breath of fresh air and become inspired by a sense of wonderment - while posing their most simple questions and appreciating a quiet authenticity to make their own discoveries.
Whether spending an evening discovering the galaxies, nebulae and star clusters under one of the darkest night skies on the planet, or an afternoon taken a brand new Bentley Supersport through the scenic rural highways of the American West, the resort awaits travelers ready to awaken their adventurous spirit.
Accommodations Recently, Gateway Canyons Resort underwent a 20 million dollar renovation project. Each of our rooms has been refurbished and redecorated, reflecting our area’s Southwestern aesthetic.
Kiva Lodge - The Kiva Lodge, our Colorado luxury resort lodging, surrounds Gateway Canyons’ beautiful pool and clubhouse courtyard, and is close to both reception, the Kiva Cafe and the Adventure Center. These 38 luxury resort rooms offer casual elegance with space to relax, some with fireplaces, private patios, private hot tubs and more.
Kayenta Lodge - Gateway Canyons founder John Hendricks is a world traveler. He has seen and experienced the best resort lodging, dining and excursions around the globe. Now he brings the best to Gateway Canyons Resort.When he was designing the picturesque adobe lodges at Gateway Canyons, Mr. Hendricks knew a few things were a must. There must be generous rooms, comfortable beds, quality linens and details like deep tubs and spa-quality bath products. When you arrive at your room, we strive to help you feel relaxed and ready for the adventures that await you at the best resort lodging in Western Colorado.
Casitas- The Premium Casitas at Gateway Canyons Resort each offer over 800 square feet of luxurious living space, set apart in tranquil seclusion on the resort grounds.Each casita houses a separate bedroom, some which feature two fire places. The stargazer casitas come with a second tier, full view den, presenting unobstructed views of the star filled sky. Featuring outdoor showers, private decks with fire pits, and five fixture bathrooms with free standing tubs, a casita retreat is the ultimate indulgence.
Dine & Drink
Entrada Restaurant - For a taste of exceptional Colorado cuisine, Entrada Restaurant & Lounge, located in the state-of-the-art Palisade Event Center, serves delicious Colorado dishes and offers a discriminating wine selection to make your dining experience a culinary event.Besides the exceptional food, Entrada is known for dining al fresco – there isn’t a more serene location than Entrada’s outdoor patio. Bask in the warmth and glow of a canyon sunset at one of Colorado’s best restaurants while dining on perfectly prepared selections from the Entrada menu. And, if you are interested in a quick bite, we recommend the Entrada Lounge, where cocktails and appetizers are served in style.
Paradox Grille - Enjoy exceptional Colorado dining in a casual and fun atmosphere. For lunch, grab the West Creek Burger – a blackened angus patty served with green chile cheddar cheese onion straws and fries, or on the lighter side the Dolores River Ensalata, with fresh high plains greens, grilled chicken, pasilla chilies, avocado and a cilantro lime vinaigrette, or our famous smoked duck enchilada served with corn salsa, ranchero sauce and queso.After dinner, head upstairs where the Paradox Grille features an exciting gaming loft, with a pool table, shuffleboard and other games to keep you entertained well into the night.
Kiva Cafe - The bar and dining area are available year round for private functions – a welcoming place to host your next corporate party, family get-together, or other special event for up to 60 people.
Cantina - relax poolside at the new Palisade Pools and enjoy the delectable cuisine at the Cantina. Or taste one of our signature libations and watch the sun set on the Palisade.
Spa
The Spa only uses products packed with restorative natural ingredients; each of our treatment rooms is appointed with tiled showers and state-of-the-art technologies, and custom treatments, tailored to your body’s needs, are available upon request. Set among the vibrant high-desert landscape and ancient Colorado canyons, The Spa is an experience not to be missed at Gateway Canyons Resort, Colorado.

Best of the Best

Brainchild of Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks, Gateway Canyons Resort serves as your portal to a Southwestern escape beyond imagination. Set within Unaweep Canyon and surrounded by dramatic red rocks, this 72-room resort unleashes your curiosity as you explore dinosaur relics and Native American rock paintings, view antique cars in the on-site auto museum or take an air tour over Moab. Go rock climbing, ride horses through ponderosa pine forest or hike the local trail system. Relaxing spa treatments and locally sourced cuisine are waiting upon your return.

Advisor Tip

Rent the car of your dreams from the hotel’s private collection and visit nearby national parks. A private helicopter transfer from Grand Junction is gorgeous. –Trish Mercer Columbus, Georgia

Reviewed on: 30 Jun 2014

Gateway Canyons Resort is a truly spectacular place.  The canyons are magnificent and provide an aura of tranquility to the resort.  If activities are important, the resort has many unique activities, such as renting all terrain vehicles and sports cars to explore the canyons, helicopter rides, horseback riding and mountain climbing. The rooms are spacious and the private patios with fire pits allow guests to relax and enjoy the evening.  While I have stayed at many unique resorts, my husband and I rate Gateway Canyons at the top of our list!
