Discovery Channel Founder Debuts Colorado’s Latest Mountain-Luxe Resort

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Gateway, Colorado – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

You might expect a luxury resort in Colorado created by the founder of the Discovery Channel to be all about the rugged mountain lifestyle. And John Hendricks’s Gateway Canyons Resort in the Unaweep Canyon wraps up all the red rock beauty, authentic cowboy and mountain sports activities, geological marvels (including dinosaur tracks) and Native American vibe of its location into a decidedly elite, educational experience. Hendricks, as it turns out, is also one of the world’s top collectors of vintage American autos, so while you might not expect a terrific car museum, don’t miss it. You also might not expect accommodations as superb as the new 650-square-foot Kayenta Signature Suites, with oversize patios, hot spring spas and private fire pits (from $1,500 nightly). But after a day of horseback riding, ATV trail riding and heli-touring, you’ll be delighted by the pampering perks.
