Located in the spectacular red rock canyons of western Colorado, Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks unveils Gateway Canyons Resort, a luxurious, world-class destination in the heart of the American West, dedicated to nurturing guests’ curiosity through intellectual stimulation and adventure within a naturally intriguing environment. Recent completion of the $100 million expansion fulfills Hendricks' original vision for the resort, which was founded out of a passion to create a gathering place for the incredibly curious.
Guests of Gateway Canyons are invited to pose their most intriguing questions and be inspired by a sense of wonderment brought forward from a variety of distinctive programs and activities. Visitors driven by a passion for learning play in the company of experts with Curiosity Adventures, a series of daily, hands-on workshops and discussions led by resident curiosity experts, on subjects such as stargazing, geology, dinosaurs and Native American history.
Catering to the most discerning traveler, guests choose from a collection of once in a lifetime experiences, with privileged access to more than 100 years of automotive history at the Gateway Colorado Auto Museum, scenic air tours aboard luxury aircraft throughout the majestic red rocks of Colorado and Utah, as well as personalized, guided excursions through the onsite Adventure Center. Enlightened travelers are also entertained by daily showings of “The Founders Series” at the Discovery Theater – an ongoing selection of Discovery Channel’s most compelling award winning films hand-picked by John Hendricks himself, from more than 40,000 hours of video in the Discovery Library.
Enveloped in the tall cottonwood trees and irrigated green fields, adobe-style accommodations feature a total of 58 guest rooms with the newly completed Kayenta Lodge and freshly renovated Kiva Lodge, offering a variety of significant additions and luxurious touches, such as pass through fireplaces and custom-crafted Peruvian furniture, over-sized patios equipped with hot spring spas, gas fireplaces and breathtaking views of the iconic Palisade rock formation.
