US$60m Zion Canyon Hot Springs project breaks ground in Southern Utah

12 Apr 2024
A brand new desert hot springs oasis, called Zion Canyon Hot Springs, is set to open in Southern Utah in Q3 of 2025.

Situated 30 minutes from the majestic Zion National Park, the US$60 million (€55.9 million, £47.9 million) destination broke ground in March and is located in the scenic landscapes of La Verkin.

Zion Canyon will be home to 53 bodies of water split between an adults-only area and a family-friendly section, alongside an array of amenities.

The offering will include 32 natural hot spring pools, three barrel saunas, three plunge pools, a large freshwater pool and whirlpool and six WorldSprings pools inspired by renowned hot springs from around the world.

The property will become the second in the WorldSprings group, which already includes Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs, CO.

A third WorldSprings property – called WorldSprings Grandscape – is also due to open imminently in Dallas, called WorldSprings Grandscape.

“We’re thrilled to announce Zion Canyon, it will welcome Southern Utah’s worldwide visitors and those of us who call it home,” said Christian Henny, president of Zion Canyon.

“We look forward to creating what will become one of the top destinations for relaxation and overall wellness in the greater Zion area.”

Once the property is completed by general contractor ARCO/Murray, guests will be greeted in the main building where they can check in and peruse a selection of retail products.

Access to the lower level locker rooms, equipped with 1,150 secure lockers, will be reachable via stairs or elevator.

Plans also include a building dedicated to food and beverage that will serve as a focal point.

Both sections of the property will offer VIP cabanas for rent, allowing guests to elevate their experience with exclusive amenities and personalised service.

Additionally, the family section will feature a recreational beer-only licence, while the adult section will boast a full bar liquor licence, offering a comprehensive selection of beer, wine and spirits.
