Under Canvas has opened the first location of ULUM, a new, safari-inspired, luxury outdoor resort brand.
ULUM Moab, situated steps from Looking Glass Arch, is located on 200 acres of desert landscape, the first destination of the ULUM brand, which launched in November, reflects nature inside and out—with architecture that embraces the contours of the land and seamlessly integrates into the landscape it inhabits, according to the company.
ULUM Moab’s contemporary lobby has floor-to-ceiling glass windows with views of Looking Glass Arch and Canyonlands National Park beyond. The light-filled lobby features organic materials like local stone, natural wood and polished concrete, and opens up onto an expansive terraced deck with dipping pools, firepits, a yoga deck and lounge spaces.
Each of the resort’s 360-sq.-ft. suite tents feature a bedroom with king-size bed, Parachute linens and robes, a lounge area with West Elm furnishings including a queen-size sofa-bed and lounge chairs and a private 70-sq.-ft. deck. A contemporary barn door reveals an ensuite bathroom with rain shower 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.
The outdoor resort offers all the amenities of a luxury hotel: upscale dining, dipping pools and complimentary wellness and lifestyle activities including yoga, stargazing, hiking, live music and evening s’mores. For one-of-a-kind excursions, ULUM’s Adventure Concierge can arrange world-class experiences including white water rafting, rock climbing, national park tours, favorite local hikes and more.
“ULUM Moab perfectly blends comfort, style, and outdoor exploration,” said Matt Gaghen, CEO, 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.”
Rooted in a commitment to sustainability, ULUM Moab offers Rivian Waypoints Level 2 chargers for guests with electric vehicles to adventure responsibly and enjoy the convenience of an overnight charge. 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.
