Luxury Without Pretense

Black Desert Resort is the decades-long culmination of many plans orbiting one, core dream:
to bring an approachable luxury resort experience to Southern Utah, a breathtaking environment lacking
immersive resort offerings. Our resort was founded on “luxury without pretense”—a famous, internal
quote from one of our visionary founders.
That means:

  • A championship, one-of-a-kind golf course that even beginners can enjoy
  • Delicious, affordable dining with menu varieties that satisfy any palate
  • Modern, luxurious rooms that won’t liquidate your life savings
  • A shopping center that entices the whole family
  • Striking architecture that bends and blends with the landscape, not against it

As Black Desert Resort becomes a fully-realized property over the next few years, we invite you to explore, discover and relish the beauty of this one-of-a-kind St. George resort.

Poolside Perfection

Situated just inside the resort center sits our expansive resort pools featuring scenic lakeside views with chaise lounges, cabanas and swim-up bar. Lounge by the water as you soak in Southern Utah’s outdoor beauty and savor your unique view of Black Desert Golf Course action. Experience the pinnacle of pools in Utah, only at Black Desert Resort.
