Bluff Dwellings Resort (Bluff, Utah)

Bluff Dwellings Resort is an exceptional value at current prices. It's brand new, designed and built by geniuses or by space aliens from nearby Monument Valley. You will not find a finer resort in the region.

The only other hotel in the area you should even consider is the hard to get View Hotel on the ridgeline in Monument Valley (northeast Arizona). Spending hours day and night on your balcony there is a mystical experience. If only we could merge the interior and amenities of Bluff Dwellings with the balconies of the View Hotel. Until that happens, you will be delighted with Bluff Dwellings.

You can't book this with hotel points, but the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal gave me 10% off using Sapphire Reserve points at 1.5 cents each.

Check In

On arrival, you will see a gravel driveway and a building in the late stages of construction. Don't be alarmed: The resort is open for business. The completed buildings are out of view in back.

Room

We have been to Park Hyatts and other 5-star hotels all over the world. Bluff Dwellings Resort knocked our socks off the moment we opened the door to our room. The designer should get an award. You feel pampered yet still connected to the desert landscape outside. This is elegance that warms your heart rather than the cold elegance of expensive materials. Although I will say the mattress was outstanding.

If you are carrying heavy bags, ask for a room on the ground floor: There are no elevators. From the second floor we saw a spectacular crescent Moon set over the bluff. The outdoor fire pit and fireplace are romantic.

 

Dining

Breakfast provisions in the room were more than ample and extremely convenient.

Service

The staff are perfect.

Location

Monument Valley is a 70-minute drive away, but the cliffs surrounding this resort are impressive in their own right..

Pool

The pool and hot tub were perfect, with the unique backdrop of nearby cliffs. The bathrooms at the pool are more elegant that those in most 5-star hotel rooms.

Incredible value for the finest small resort within hundreds of miles

Please identify the location. Bluff Dwellings isn't familiar and I suspect that there's more than one Monument Valley in the world.

Also, does this place belong to any chains or participate in programs like FHR, Virtuosoi, LHW, etc.?

Edited to correct. No chain that I know of. Location is southeastern Utah.

I appreciate you bringing this hotel to our attention. I've now booked it thru the Chase portal. I was able to book a suite using UR points. The View Hotel is closed indefinitely due to COVID.
