Under Canvas Launches New Luxury Outdoor Resort Brand, ULUM

Under Canvas has launched ULUM, a new, safari-inspired, outdoor resort brand that will welcome guests for stays beginning March 2023. Steps from the Southwest’s Looking Glass Arch in Moab, UT, the brand’s first location ULUM Moab, will provide refined comfort in nature.

Carefully integrated into 200 acres of desert landscape, the resort is surrounded by 100-foot cliffs on three sides and opens to expansive views of Canyonlands National Park. The new resort brand experience will offer all-suite, safari-inspired tents with the amenities of a luxury hotel.

ULUM will have a low profile, temperature-controlled contemporary lobby, lounge and restaurant. The entry reveals a custom-crafted chandelier made entirely of ancient rock fragments from the site. Comfortable custom furnishings provide a range of social seating while outdoor lounge areas, hot and cool dipping pools, fire pits, yoga deck and intimate, communal gathering areas showcase the adjacent Looking Glass Arch and desert vista beyond.

Resort programming will include complimentary yoga, stargazing, onsite hiking, live, acoustic music and evening s’mores. ULUM Moab provides easy access to Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park. For one-of-a-kind excursions, ULUM’s Adventure Concierge will connect guests with local outfitters for white water rafting, rock-climbing, guided national park tours and hikes. Guests will wake to the scent of burning white copal—a natural resin used in Mayan ceremonies—from the communal area, where there will be a daily ritual of greeting the morning sun, clearing stagnant energy and creating space for spiritual awakening.

Each of ULUM Moab’s 360-square-foot Suite Tents have a private 70-square-foot deck. The tents have a bedroom with king size bed and plush linens, robes, tables topped with lanterns, plus a lounge area with a queen size sofa-bed and lounge chairs. The tents will be equipped with evaporative cooling fans and wood stoves. A contemporary barn door slides open to reveal an en-suite bathroom with rain shower, polished concrete sink and plant-based bath products. 


Guests can enjoy full service, al fresco dining with a fresh, seasonal menu highlighting southwest inspired flavors and sustainable ingredients, paired with craft cocktails inspired by local flora such as sage, juniper and prickly pear. Besides a full breakfast and dinner menu in the restaurant, an onsite café will bring coffee culture to the outdoors with hot and cold espresso beverages, juice, smoothies, and grab-and-go lunches. Artisan chocolates and marshmallows will be offered for nightly s’mores.

Partnerships with like-minded brands further enhance the ULUM guest experience with products available for onsite purchase. Partners have been carefully curated based on a shared ethos around sustainable practice and well-being. Furthering a commitment to sustainable initiatives and in partnership with Rivian, ULUM Moab will offer Rivian Waypoints Level 2 chargers to allow for guests with electric vehicles to adventure responsibly and enjoy the convenience of an overnight charge.

The company’s mindful approach extends to construction materials and even tent and lobby furnishings, including use of thermally modified lumber, recycled paper board walls, and shower basins and sinks that employ carbon sequestration to minimize carbon footprint. Additionally, the resort utilizes International Dark Sky standards recognizing thoughtful development practices that mitigate light pollution and maximize the night’s sky. Under Canvas and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) have partnered to help fund conservation and raise awareness through education, volunteer efforts and donation programs. Guests of ULUM are invited to join the company with a donation of their choosing to support important research and actions to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

The inaugural season for ULUM Moab is March 30-October 23, 2023.
