Desert Rose Inn & Suites
Amer & Cindy Tumeh’s first dip into the hospitality industry started when they purchased the Historic Jens Nielson home and renovated it into a 5 bedroom Guest House. They loved the people and the process so much they decided they needed to expand. However, not wanting to destroy the historic integrity of the Jens Nielson home they decided to build outside the historic district. Landing them on the west end of Bluff they started with 5 Executive Cabins and an office cabin in 1997....

PhoeniX 186 "One of my best hotels ever" Without any doubt, this must have been one of the most beautiful hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. While not immediately noticeable from the outside, the interior is simply stunning. With an amazing eye for detail, the rooms were most likely decorated by an interior designer (see picture). Even in the bathroom, attention was obviously paid to the little details: only a faint light near the toilet (if you need to go during the night, the light isn't too bright for your dark adjusted eyes), but there's a brighter one near the sink. The switch for the ventilator was conveniently placed next to the toilet itself.
The pool in this hotel was beautiful too, and the staff was very friendly, even giving us the menus from the few restaurants down the road and checking the weather for us for the next day.
Are there then no negative points at all? Yes, there were, but only minor ones: a little refrigerator on the room would have been nice; the pool is slightly mysteriously prohibited to swim alone in as there are no life guards (I can swim perfectly fine and wouldn't mind doing so alone - not sure why this is not possible); and the location: it's (save the few venues in Bluff itself) pretty far from everything. If you want to go visit Mexican Hat Rock or Monument Valley as we did, you're in for an hour drive. That being said, I don't think any of these minor "issues" should diminish the score for the tremendous time we had at this hotel, and I would gladly come here again. Highly recommended.
yellowchat “The Gem in the middle of nowhere 13/5/2015” Well after a full day of magnificent sight seeing this hotel was a revelation , an ultra modern wooden hotel situated in a small town ,still being added to and we as a group were housed in the latest addition and what luxury it was(see photos) The hotel had no facilities for an evening meal (we later walked to a local steak house),as for breakfast ,we were initially going to town for that as none was available at the time of booking but 3 days before our arrival breakfast service was up and running and very nice it was. We had a late arrival so was not able to visit the Bluff Historic Fort but understand it is a little jewel so if you have time be sure to visit.
Located at the west entrance to historic Bluff, Utah, the Desert Rose Inn architecture is an all wood style building with massive timbers which excite the senses with their intimate charm.
