The American Southwest is undeniably iconic, with its awe-inspiring natural beauty, enviable year-round weather, and (well-earned) Wild Wild West reputation. Perhaps it's each of those things combined, but there's definitely something about the Southwest that's absolutely perfect for glamping resorts.
Whether you prefer a luxury yurt or a rustic, as-close-to-nature-as-you-can-get-without-actually-camping experience, you'll find it in the Southwest. To help you plan your next getaway, we rounded up eight of the best glamping resorts in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah.
American Southwest glamping resorts
Maybe you're the type who genuinely enjoys "roughing it," or perhaps your idea of camping involves air-conditioning, running water, and luxury bedding. Whichever end of the spectrum you're on, one of these glamping resorts in the Southwest is the perfect fit.
1. Grand Canyon Eco Retreat, Kaibab National Forest
It's no wonder Outside magazine named this the best Hipcamp in Arizona — the 10-acre off-grid property has three eco-yurts and a tiny A-frame cabin, plus a shared bathroom and even a sauna. Better yet, it's just 45 minutes from the Grand Canyon and 10 minutes from the adorable historic town of Williams. The hosts also offer guided yoga, bike tours, and hikes.
2. Shash Diné Glamping Hotel, Page
This stunning glamping destination is situated on a working sheep ranch on the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona, just 12 miles from Page (the home of Lake Powell, Horseshoe Bend, and Antelope Canyon). Choose from well-appointed bell tents, covered sheep wagons, traditional Navajo hogans, or the Kyoob, an airy and modern tiny cabin.
