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....

Liz S "Total surprise"
We did not know what to expect in this remote area. Spectacular views and a very nice family-run inn. Very clean, exceptionally friendly staff. The pool is special - looks out onto never-ending landscape. Comfortable rooms. If we're ever in this part of the country again, we would definitely seek this place out. Also had dinner at the hotel restaurant and were very happy. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We travel frequently and our recent visit to Bluff, Utah was a pleasant surprise for both of us. We LOVED the Desert Rose! We stayed in Executive Cabin #3 and felt like we were on our own private island. The cabin was very comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and having our nightly adult beverage purchased from the K&C store down the street. We had seen a Navajo Basket collection on display at the St. George museum back in December from the Twin Rocks Trading Post and have been wanting to visit that area for a couple of months and finally made the time to go. We got several treasures from the Trading Post and also toured Bluff Fort. You could tell how much effort is put into preserving the past and we were very touched by the story of the Pioneers who settled Bluff City. The presentation is a bit long, but definitely worth the time! And make sure to get a Prairie Diamond Ring for your sweetie! ;) The Sand Island Petroglyphs about 5 miles down the road were interesting and there is also a great place to launch rafts and Kayaks onto the San Juan River from there. And I can't even properly explain how incredible Monument Valley was! We couldn't believe how much history there is in this area and how much there was to do in and around this charming town. The next morning after meeting Cindy, the proprietor, at the front desk we toured Desert Rose's newly built Lodge with Swimming Pool, Exercise Room and Courtyard Suites and outdoor patios and will definitely try staying in that section of the hotel next time--and there WILL be a next time! It is obvious that this resort was a labor of love for the owners and the attention to detail at this facility is World Class! We can't wait to share our experience with many of our friends who travel frequently--we know they will love the area as much as we did!
