Cougar Ridge is a unique, upscale resort that offers a luxurious oasis in the heart of the red rock desert. But our Torrey Utah resort is so much more than your standard hotel. From our beautiful Grand Lodge to our stunning luxury Villas, and our wide range of unique on-site amenities, there are plenty of things that help our resort shine.

The Ability to Accommodate Groups

One thing that helps Cougar Ridge stand out as one of the best places to stay in Torrey Utah is our ability to accommodate groups. If you are corporate retreat planning or trying to book a special getaway with your extended family, most hotels and motels offer limited options. Each couple, individual, or small family will likely need to have their own hotel room. When it comes to spending time together, you’ll be very limited. Some hotels might have a conference room or two that you can use. But if you want to relax, enjoy a meal together or have some fun, you’ll likely need to leave your hotel to do so.

The Grand Lodge, the crowning jewel of Cougar Ridge, is the ultimate destination for group travel. This three-story sandstone masterpiece is packed with five-star amenities. It features four master lodge suites, as well as an additional bunk room on the third floor. Each of the master suites is unique, with its own special amenities, like a private hot tub, deck access, or a clawfoot tub.

Elsewhere in the Lodge, guests enjoy access to multiple full-service kitchens, including one designed for catering for large groups, dining areas, and living rooms. While the Lodge features stunning stone and woodwork throughout and elevated, luxurious touches, it’s the special amenities located throughout the Lodge that make it one of the best places to stay in Torrey Utah. Guests of the Lodge enjoy access to a game room with a unique Mesquite bar, a well-equipped exercise room, a spa with a steam room, sauna, and massage table, a wine cellar and tasting room, a simulator room with golfing, driving, and a shooting gallery, a bowling alley, a woodworking shop, and a theater room.

Stunning Luxury Villas

The Grand Lodge is a special destination for groups of all kinds. But when it comes to places to stay in Torrey Utah, most travelers are looking for accommodations for a couples or family getaway. You’ll find that at Cougar Ridge, too.

Our stunning luxury Villas are a great option for shorter stays for couples, small families, solo travelers, and friends. We offer nine luxury villas, including both two-bedroom and three-bedroom villas, and the option to reserve a single suite. The villas feature the same quality craftsmanship found in the Grand Lodge, but with a cozy feeling. 

Each Villa features a separate living room and bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. In the living room, you’ll find a well-equipped kitchenette and a lounge space, complete with a fireplace. The Villas also each offer a private deck with a Trager grill and incredible views.

On-Site Amenities

In addition to the amenities located inside the Grand Lodge and available to Lodge guests, all guests have access to a variety of other on-site amenities

Take a walk around the property and meet our resident ranch animals. Join in a Night Sky Party, available weekly. Relax around a campfire and roast some s’mores.

For an additional fee, guests can rent e-bikes to ride, have a private sand volleyball court set up, or even host a private rodeo! If you’re corporate retreat planning or hosting a group, you can even host a class on woodworking, beer and winemaking, horse care and training, painting, and more.

While there’s plenty to fill your time at Cougar Ridge, our staff can also help you book a variety of off-site activities in nearby Torrey Utah, Capitol Reef National Park, and beyond. Enjoy a fly fishing charter, hit the dirt in an off-road vehicle, try canyoneering, and more.
