The perfect honeymoon should include two things: romance and adventure. It’s the opportunity to break out of the mundane, start building your life as newlyweds and create memories that will last a lifetime. For the outdoor-loving couple, southern Utah is just the place. World-class hiking, awe-inspiring views and a laid-back attitude make this the vacation you’ll tell your kids about someday. If hiking in Utah is on your bucket list, honeymooning at Red Mountain Resort in St. George, Utah offers the best of both worlds. See all the property has to offer below!
For the couple who loves to hike, we have you covered. Our expert guides lead daily hikes to some of the area’s hidden gems, inviting guests to feel like they’re in on the secret. Discover the vibrant oranges and reds of Candy Cliffs, the rolling lava flows of Snow Canyon State Park and the lush forests of Dixie National Forest that most visitors miss. For thrill-seekers, excursions like Sunset Rappelling pairs a picturesque, romantic backdrop with a heart-pounding experience.
We also offer full-day excursions to the area’s best national parks, leading hikes through Bryce Canyon’s hoodoos and along Zion’s famous river walk, the Narrows, to name a few. This is the best way to experience the beauty of the parks without waiting in line for shuttles and gear or guessing which trails to take. Let us do the planning so you can focus on each other.
After a morning on the trail, an afternoon at the award-winning Sagestone Spa and Salon can be just the thing to recover and get you back on your feet. For the athletic couple, the Red Rock Hiker’s massage is a must as the marine mud pack improves circulation and draws out toxins, replenishing the legs for another day of adventure. The spa also offers couples massage, perfect for lovebirds.
For a laid-back afternoon focused on quality time with one another, lounging by the indoor or outdoor pools, or snuggling in a hammock, offers a perfectly relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors.
Casual Gormet Dining
The starry sky makes outdoor dining a magical experience here at the resort, or, cozy up next to the double-sided fireplace on chilly nights. Whether you dine in the restaurant or enjoy room service, our chef has designed a diverse menu for any diet and preference. Pair a juicy steak, fresh seafood, grilled free-range chicken, or a selection from our extensive vegetarian/vegan menu with a bottle of wine for a heavenly evening.
What makes this trip truly over-the-top, are our all-inclusive retreat packages. Honeymooners can take full advantage of the resort’s offerings on the Ultimate Essential Retreat.

This all-inclusive package is also perfect for the couple looking to elope. The resort offers expert staff who are ready to help make the big day special and can help the newlyweds save on travel costs, as they can honeymoon right here at the resort.
