APEX Commercial Real Estate | KW South Valley Keller Williams is pleased to present the sale of the Desert Rose Resort, an independent resort destination located on Highway US-191 in the historic Bluff, Utah. This location originally began operations in 1997 and has since featured a substantial amount of additions throughout the years attempting to keep up with demand.
The Property originally opened in 1997 with the development of 6 cottages. Due to the high demand and growing popularity of the surrounding attractions like Monument Valley and Valley of the Gods, the development of the main lodge containing 30 rooms was completed in 1999. Demand continued to soar, leading to the addition of an Executive Cottage Suite in 2000. With over a decade of great success, growth, and demand the owner reinvested into the business to expand with the development of 16 Luxury Courtyard Suites in 2014, along with the addition of Duke’s Restaurant in 2015.
Jump forward to today and the market is still demanding expansion to the operations of the resort. Currently, the owner has obtained a building permit for the addition of a workshop and 14 more cottages, in which 7 of these are already underway with concrete pads and underground utilities already in place. Another option is to build additional courtyard suites, 66 rooms, and/or other facilities.
Keep in mind, the existing leach field has enough capacity to add 66 rooms without expanding the leach field. The courtyard septic tank currently has enough capacity for 14 additional rooms, however additional tanks would need to be added if more than 14 rooms are constructed. The leach field can also be expanded to add more than 66 rooms if desired.
