From the minds behind Under Canvas, ULUM offers elevated design, luxury, and adventure in nature

DENVER, Colo. (April 10, 2023) – Under Canvas, the leader in upscale, outdoor hospitality, announced today the opening of ULUM™, a new, safari-inspired, luxury outdoor resort brand with its first location near Moab, UT. ULUM Moab, ideally situated steps from awe-inspiring Looking Glass Arch, is now open, inviting guests to experience elevated design, exceptional hospitality and refined comfort in nature.

Located on 200 acres of stunning desert landscape, the first destination of the ULUM brand reflects nature inside and out – with architecture that embraces the contours of the land and seamlessly integrates into the landscape it inhabits, and an innovative design that embraces the natural elements of its surroundings.

ULUM Moab’s contemporary lobby has floor-to-ceiling glass windows with unparalleled views of nearby Looking Glass Arch and Canyonlands National Park beyond. The light-filled lobby features organic materials like local stone, natural wood, and polished concrete at every turn, and opens up onto an expansive terraced deck with dipping pools, firepits, a yoga deck, and comfortable lounge spaces, perfect for enjoying the resort’s exceptional views.

Each of the resort’s spacious, 360-square-foot Suite Tents feature a bedroom with king-size bed, plush Parachute linens and robes, a lounge area with West Elm furnishings including a queen size sofa-bed and lounge chairs, and a private 70-square-foot deck. A contemporary barn door slides open to reveal an ensuite bathroom with rain shower, polished concrete sink, and plant-based, Aesop bath products. Natural woods, woven rugs, and a Pendleton wool blanket highlight the use of organic materials throughout, and an evaporative cooling fan and wood-burning stove for the perfect sleeping environment from spring to fall.

Designed to provide an elevated outdoor hospitality experience, ULUM Moab offers all the amenities of a luxury hotel: upscale dining, dipping pools, and complimentary wellness and lifestyle activities such as guided yoga, stargazing, onsite hiking, live acoustic music and evening s’mores. For one-of-a-kind excursions, ULUM’s Adventure Concierge connects guests with trusted local outfitters for world-class experiences including white water rafting, rock-climbing at adjacent Looking Glass Arch, guided national park tours, favorite local hikes, and more.

“ULUM Moab perfectly blends comfort, style, and outdoor exploration,” said Matt Gaghen, chief executive officer of Under Canvas. “Our exceptional location featuring Looking Glass Arch and spectacular views across Canyonlands is inspiring. We look forward to welcoming guests to this unique, new resort experience, where they can relax, recharge, and discover nature in a whole new way.“

Approachable, high-quality, expertly crafted meals are pillars of the ULUM experience. Craft cocktails reflecting local flora such as sage, juniper, and prickly pear complement a seasonal, Southwest-inspired menu featuring distinctive flavors and fresh ingredients, all enjoyed al fresco surrounded by the enchanting desert landscape. In addition to a full breakfast and dinner menu in the restaurant, an onsite espresso and smoothie bar brings coffee culture to the outdoors with premium hot and cold espresso beverages, specialty smoothies, and grab ‘n go snacks.


Rooted in a commitment to sustainable initiatives, ULUM Moab offers Rivian Waypoints Level 2 chargers to allow for guests with electric vehicles to adventure responsibly and enjoy the convenience of an overnight charge while they re-energize for a day’s adventure. The resort follows International Dark Sky principles, recognizing thoughtful development practices that mitigate light pollution and maximize the night’s sky. Additionally, Under Canvas has joined forces with the global environmental nonprofit The Nature Conservancy (TNC) to help fund conservation and raise awareness through education, volunteer efforts, and donation programs—and invites guests of ULUM to join the company with a donation of their choosing to support important research and actions to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
