Red Cliffs Lodge Awards & Recognition
Red Cliffs Lodge Included in National Geographic Traveler Stay List
National Geographic Traveler tapped into the collected experiences of veteran journalists, inveterate road warriors, and local experts, and based their nominations for this list on key criteria: Is the hotel engaged with the local community? Does it subscribe to sustainable practices respecting the region? Does it truly capture the spirit of its setting? Further research and detailed questionnaires winnowed hundreds of submissions down to their sweet list of 129 hotels.
Top Adventure Destination Moab, Utah
Nestled in a green valley surrounded by red rock scenery, Moab isn’t a destination for what’s inside the city limits — rather, what’s just outside is the big attraction. Not only is it on the doorstep of a pair of national parks — Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park — it’s also home to dozens of outfitters who will guide your rafting, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, or four-wheeling tour.
Red Cliffs Lodge Wins Utah Best of State Award
Colin Fryer, owner of Red Cliffs Lodge, was presented with the award for “Best Hotel in the State of Utah” at the 2009 Best of State Awards gala in the Grand Ballroom of the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City on Saturday, May 30. The new list debuts in the April 2009 issue of National Geographic Traveler and includes 129 properties in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
Best of State recognizes and rewards businesses, organizations, and individuals for “Excelling and Surpassing All Else,” in the quality of their products, services, operations, and accomplishments. It also encourages creativity in how businesses, organizations, and individuals differentiate themselves from their competition.
Best of State nominees are judged on their “superior accomplishments,” and special consideration is given to those whose actions, deeds, works and charitable contributions are making the world a better place, according to a news release from Red Cliffs Lodge.
Red Cliffs Lodge opened in 2002 and draws visitors from across the U.S. and the world. Since opening, the lodge has been named the “best weekend getaway,” and has received recommendations from a variety of national travel magazines including being listed in the Perfect 10 list in Outside Traveler, and inclusion in National Geographic Traveler magazine’s top destinations in the world.
“We rented a cabin along the river, what a restful and peaceful place to stay. The staff was SUPER! There is a restaurant on site with reasonable prices and great food. You can sit outside on the deck and watch the sunset with colors on the red rocks that are indescribable. There is an abundance of activities you can take part in at this ranch so don’t let the 13 miles or so from Moab detour you. If you’re looking for a great restful place to get away but not be completely secluded, this is the place.”
