Does the term “Luxury With Wild Abandonment” ignite a little spark in your soul? Well, it does for us, which is why even though The Lodge at Blue Sky is a little over a month from opening and in final stages of construction, we couldn’t wait to get up there for a tour.
Inspiration behind the resort
Owners and creators of Blue Sky Ranch, the Phillips family, observed today’s society becoming more and more disconnected from nature in the day-to-day hustle. They were inspired to create an environment where guests can slow down to reestablish a connection with the land.
Location and accommodations
The Lodge At Blue Sky is located on 3,500 acres of wilderness in Utah’s Wasatch Range and offers a variety of accommodations. Guests can choose from a variety of lodging types like contemporary one bedroom suites in the main structure, Sky Lodge, to free-standing structures (Creek Houses) that sit along the bank of Alexander Creek. The Creek Houses have patios facing the water, hammock swings and come with fishing rods to catch a Utah Trout out your front door.
Keeping with the theme of epic uniqueness connecting guests with nature, the resort offers an array of experiences like working cattle, championship-caliber shooting clays and heli-skiing during the winter months. The summer activity topping the list is mountain top yoga via helicopter, where staff can prepare tea and a picnic post work out to conclude the experience.
When guests are not out exploring the surrounding wilderness, the Edge Spa will provide 7,400 square feet of tranquil space to unwind. The spa features fitness training, aerial and vinyasa yoga, open-aired infinity pool and five luxurious treatment rooms built overlooking the creek.
Perhaps what excites us the most about our community’s newest gem, is The Lodge’s main restaurant: Yuta, which is the Ute Indian word for “people who live high in the mountains”. Lucky for non-guests, the restaurant will be open to the public. Yuta will be a 65-seater with inside and outside dining, serving cuisine reflecting the cultural melting pot of the railroad era; Chinese, Irish, Mexican and Spanish, to name a few. Ingredients will all be sustainably sourced, most of which will be locally grown on Blue Sky’s own farm. Guests will even have the option to pick crop at the farm and have it prepared in their meal at Yuta for the most authentic farm to table experience.
The Lodge at Blue Sky will be opening over Memorial Day Weekend and are offering a Local’s Rate that includes one night in a Sky Room paired with a three-course dinner at the restaurant for two guests. If interested in learning more about this offer, please contact the hotel at 866.296.8998
