Usually here at IAMGALLA we’re pretty on top of posting and timing but I will admit, for the Utah trip I took last July, I definitely fell short! So FINALLY without further adieu, my Utah summer getaway!
I was so fortunate to be able to escape from the humid city that was NY and find this haven, Deer Valley. Conveniently sitting beside Park City, Deer Valley is home to several celebrities especially when it comes time for the SunDance Film Festival. I know I certainly felt like a star for the fact that I was a guest to Montage, the jewel of Deer Valley.The hotel sits on one of the highest mountains in the region and is renown for it’s winter slopes and breathtaking views.
One of the things I personally admired about the hotel most was the staff and hotel services. Everyone was so incredibly accommodating. There was a night I needed to retrieve some money from the ATM which had closed inside the gift shop and they insisted on opening it just to meet my needs. Another scenario was lunch on the first day- I was being my picky self and asked for a burger that wasn’t on the menu to which they completely accommodated and made it from scratch. talk about kindness! From the moment you check in to the moment you check out, you can tell that it is their priority to make sure you are completely taken care of. Trust me when I say, I have visited many resorts but none quite like this.
Along with gourmet restaurants and stocked bars, Montage Deer Valley also offers fun amenities and summer recreation. Michael and I went Mountain biking for hours (And had battle wounds to prove it) followed by volleyball and hiking. I wish our trip was longer so we could’ve had a chance to participate in archery lessons, canoeing, river rafting, hot air-ballooning or even zip-lining! I’m telling you this place has it all and will keep you entertained for hours if you’re a nature guru.
I know we’re half way through fall and coming into the winter seasons but if you’re an early planner and insist on a getaway for next summer from your rural town then I would highly recommend Montage Deer Valley. I even feel like my pictures don’t do justice because it’s one thing to see it here and another to experience it. The skies are so clear, and blue and the air so clean and crisp, it’s the refreshing wake up call everyone needs.
