The offers are not combinable with other promotions, are valid for new bookings, and need to be booked via XO.
Nestled deep in the Colorado Rockies, Dunton Hot Springs features individual cabins and natural hot springs, in a perfectly-restored romantic old mining town. The town of Dunton was a thriving homestead, established in 1885 and settled by miners digging for gold and silver until it was deserted and became an abandoned ghost town in 1918. Dunton Destinations has lovingly restored and repurposed the old homes and businesses of miners as guest accommodations and common areas.
Ranging in size from 1 bedroom to 5 bedrooms, the property’s 13 hand-hewn log cabins provide options for all types of travelers. Featuring modern, luxury amenities, and tastefully decorated with unique artifacts and furnishings, each cabin possesses a distinct character. With cabins built in a circle around the authentic Dunton Saloon and Dance Hall, every window affords magnificent views of the mountains and the surrounding meadows.
Beyond spa treatments, Dunton offers five ways to take to the restoring waters of its natural hot springs, which range in temperature from 85°F to 106°F: inside the restored 19th century bathhouse, under the stars at the source, in the pool outside the bathhouse, in the pool behind the Dunton Store cabin, and inside the Well House cabin. During the summer season, guests can enjoy fly-fishing in the trout-rich waters of the Dolores River and explore breathtaking nearby trails using mountain bikes, by foot, or on horseback. During the winter, guests can explore the serene San Juan Mountains cross-country skiing, back-country alpine skiing, snowshoeing, and on horse-drawn sleigh rides.
Nightly rates include all meals and beverages (non-alcoholic and alcoholic), use of common area amenities, and use of activity equipment, and each stay is fully customized to guests’ needs.
Set in a lush meadow ringed by Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, Dunton River Camp is a luxury tented camp, available on an exclusive-use basis for up to 16 guests. A former 500-acre cattle ranch from the late 1800s, the frontier-style base is the perfect destination to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of regular life and explore the wilds of Colorado.
Dunton Destinations’ summer-only camp features eight luxurious prospector / safari style tents, each sitting on a 640 square foot wooden platform anchored to bedrock. Each tent features the amenities of a luxury hotel, including king-size beds, gas stoves, and ensuite bathrooms with marble sinks and 6-foot soaker bathtubs.
With the camp located just 20 feet from the West Fork of the Dolores River, guests don’t need to look far for fly-fishing in its trout-rich waters. Guests can also explore breathtaking nearby trails using complimentary mountain bikes, by foot, or on horseback. After a day spent getting “dirty” in nature, guests can return to the camp to “cleanse” their bodies in the spa tent, relax in a riverfront sauna, enjoy a dinner of local, organic cuisine at the farmhouse, and sip Single Malt Whiskey and bourbon cocktails at “Barbara’s Bar” ‒ all before gravitating to the outdoor fire pit for s’mores and hot chocolate. Nightly rates include all meals and beverages (non-alcoholic and alcoholic), use of common area amenities, and use of activity equipment, and each stay is fully customized to guests’ needs.
Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort, is an iconic hotel ensconced in the heart of the California Central Coast, perched at the edge of the continent overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean. Nothing can change the special feeling that rises within you at Ventana Big Sur. With 59 secluded suites featuring expansive balconies, 160 magnificent acres of natural splendor on the rugged coast, and amenities and activities both private and purposeful, Ventana embodies the notion that space is luxury.
This is a place where everyone can find what they seek, from romance and emotional connection to perspective and solitary reflection. And with so much change in the air, so much in Big Sur remains as it has always been – and as it is meant to be. The towering redwood forests. The crashing sea down below. The supportive, nurturing environment that fosters meaning, strengthens relationships and encourages you to define your own unique path. Ventana Big Sur’s new inclusive offering seamlessly blends all of this into a carefree experience that now includes meals, signature activities, and much more. It’s a completely new approach, a more rewarding way to explore.
