I stayed here the last 3 nights and it was superb. Yes, you stay in a tent but.....very good warm beds, solar lamps in the rooms, small fans that are powered by chargers. We had 3 ladies fit comfortably in our tent. We did use the bath house a few yards away. Plenty of clean towels and each bath room had a shower, toilet and sink. They had shampoo, conditioner, and bath gel. What i didn’t know is that each bathroom had a plug so you could bring a hair dryer and curling iron. I was a hat girl! The main tent had complimentary hot tea, hot coco, hot apple cider and coffee. The staff was super nice, helpful and courteous. Our group brought food and used a tent with new Weber gas grills to cook each night. Incredible views of the stars. Only down side was some traffic noise from the highway, but it was easily cancelled by my earplugs. I loved it!

Glamping in Moab
Spending just a few days in Moab and couldn’t miss chance to go glamping for at least a night. Amazing property and customer service was exemplary. Manage your expectations...this is NOT a hotel. I understood this well before I made my reservations. I absolutely love hotels so I stayed one night at this property for the glamping experience then stayed at a hotel for duration of my stay in Moab.

Even better than last year
Stayed under the canvas last year and had to stay again this year. Was a little concerned about how hot it would be in the tent since we were a month earlier than last year, but the misting cooled it right down. Super friendly staff (especially the guy from one of the Carolina’s don’t remember his name 😬) This is a bit pricier than a regular hotel in the area but so worth it for the experience - you’ll never forget it!

Heaven. Real life dream come true.
Under Canvas was a bucket list item and it exceeded all my exceptions. The tents are so dreamy. The staff gave great local advice. Live music at night by the fire with s’mores 😍 my new bucket list item is to stay at all of their locations. I stayed with a friend, but this would be so fun for couples!

Stars are the Highlight
To start, I am not a camping person. My friend saw this place advertised online and we thought it would be a good experience to try for a night, a good in-between for real camping and staying in a hotel. One night was the perfect amount of time for me, because while everything was very nice, clean, and well maintained, there just isn't a ton to do in the area. It is relatively close to the road, and you can sometimes hear traffic.
Our biggest issue was with the individual hired by Under Canvas to run the "hike" on the grounds. Some comments were inappropriate and uncalled for, and we brought this up before we left. The other staff members (the actual Under Canvas staff) were wonderful, however. They were very attentive, and when we asked about the temperature in the tent at night (my friend gets cold, even on the hottest days), we were offered extra blankets. When the woman delivered the blanket to our tent, she even pointed out a couple of visible planets!
The views of the sky are AMAZING. We saw the Milky Way very clearly, and with the backdrop of the mountains you can't beat the view. I was up until 2am taking pictures, and another kind staff member came out to point me to the best spot for photos, and let me know when the moon would be visible (and where). This is reason enough to try this place out for a night.
