Desert Color Resort in St. George is one of the best family-friendly vacation rental communities in all of Southern Utah. Why? Because of its prime location, unbeatable amenities, 2.5-acre lagoon, and luxurious vacation rentals from 1 to 14 bedrooms! Take a look at what makes this resort so special:

1. Ideal location in St. George, Utah

Located next to Big Shots Golf, Desert Color is central to the best St. George attractions, restaurants, shopping, and hiking trails. You’re minutes from downtown and just a short drive from Southern Utah’s state and national parks, including Zion National Park, Sand Hollow State Park and Reservoir, and Snow Canyon State Park. You can even take a day trip to Las Vegas from the St. George area- your options for an exciting family vacation are truly endless!

2. Large private resort beach and lagoon


The standout feature of this St. George resort is the gorgeous sandy beaches and sparkling, filtered lagoon. It’s one of the best places to swim in St. George! You can also paddleboard, kayak, ride a pedal boat, or just float on a tube. The lagoon is 9 feet at its deepest in the middle and shallow around the edges. There are lots of first-come first-serve lounge chairs and areas to sit back and relax, as well as comfortable cabanas that can be rented at the resort! Your family will never be bored and are guaranteed to make lasting memories here.

3. Awesome amenities and activities for families

Besides the incredible lagoon and beach, Desert Color Resort offers guests a huge community pool, pickleball courts, and sand volleyball, just to name a few. Several of the buildings also feature rooftop decks. These community Sky Deck amenities include a hot tub, outdoor fireplace, BBQ, and plenty of seating. Additionally, you can enjoy a roof-top yoga class, take the kids to arts and crafts events and other special activities, experience “dive-in” movies from the pool or the lagoon, try delicious food during the resort’s food truck nights, and so much more!

4. Vacation rentals designed with families in mind
