Under Canvas, the leader in upscale, outdoor hospitality announced the introduction of ULUM™; a new, outdoor resort brand that will welcome guests for stays beginning March 2023. The first location is just south of Moab, Utah, one of the desert southwest’s preeminent outdoor destinations.
ULUM exemplifies and elevated the Under Canvas brand for the refined outdoor adventurer. Featuring elevated design, warm hospitality, and refined comfort in nature. A stunning lobby lounge building features bi-fold floor-to-ceiling glass windows that blur the line between indoors and out with an unprecedented design illuminated by the landscape it inhabits.
ULUM takes root in nature – while providing sophisticated comforts – to offer guests a fresh perspective on outdoor exploration.
At this point, you may be wondering what sets ULUM apart from Under Canvas. ULUM sets out to provide an elevated experience with luxury amenities. We believe that enjoying the outdoors doesn’t have to be at the expense of warm hospitality, fresh and sustainable culinary options, luxury amenities, or thoughtful design.
ULUM’s temperature-controlled, contemporary lobby lounge and restaurant features thoughtful design elements. From local stone and natural wood to a custom crafted chandelier made entirely of ancient rock fragments from the site. Comfortable yet stylish custom furnishings provide a range of social seating while cascading outdoor lounge areas, hot and cool dipping pools, fire pits, yoga deck and intimate and communal gathering areas showcase the adjacent Looking Glass Arch and desert vista beyond.
Resort programming will include complimentary yoga, stargazing, onsite hiking, live, and acoustic music, and evening s’mores! For one-of-a-kind excursions, ULUM’s Adventure Concierge will connect guests with trusted local outfitters for world-class white-water rafting, rock-climbing at adjacent Looking Glass Arch, guided national park tours and favorite local hikes.
Guests will wake to the energizing scent of burning white copal – a natural resin used in Mayan ceremonies – from the communal area, where there will be a daily ritual of greeting the morning sun, clearing stagnant energy and creating space for spiritual awakening.
Embracing the natural contours of the land, ULUM Moab’s spacious Suite Tents are integrated into the natural landscape for uninhibited views. They feature a bedroom with a king size bed and plush Parachute linens, custom branded robes, bedside tables topped with lanterns, plus a lounge area with West Elm furnishings including a queen size sofa-bed and lounge chairs.
Guest tents will be equipped with evaporative cooling and a wood burning stove, for the perfect sleeping environment from spring to fall. A contemporary barn door slides open to reveal an ensuite bathroom with a rain shower, polished concrete sink, and plant-based, Aesop bath products. Natural wood, woven rugs, and a Pendleton wool blanket highlight the use of organic materials throughout.
Approachable, quality, and seasonal cuisine with southwest inspired flavors and elevated service are pillars of the ULUM experience. Full-service, al fresco dining complemented by cappuccinos and aperitifs at indoor and outdoor lounges, together with artisan chocolates and marshmallows for nightly s’mores—the culinary experience at ULUM is one to be savored.
You can expect to find Aesop bath amenities in your rainfall shower, custom parachute robes and bed linens. Evaporative cooling and a wood burning fire to keep the temperature perfect and a Pendleton blanket to snuggle up with! We’ll also have amazing retail partners available for purchase so don’t forget that credit card! Sun Bum, S’well, Friends of Friends and ULUM branded merch will all be on-site. Once again bringing you the comfort of a luxury hotel to the outside!
ULUM Moab will be open March 30-October 23, 2023. Reservations are now open. Discover more at UlumMoab.com
