Under Canvas Grand Canyon is set upon 160 acres of secluded piñon and juniper forest, just 25 minutes from the South Rim Entrance to Grand Canyon National Park. This unique glamping destination has been named one of the “500 Best Hotels Across the Globe” by Travel + Leisure and one of the “Top 15 Resorts in the U.S. – Southwest” by Conde Nast Traveler.  

The camp’s 90 upscale, safari-inspired tents balance adventure, comfort, and luxury, and offer the perfect way to experience this exceptional bucket-list destination. Tent amenities include king-size beds, comfy linens, wood-burning stoves, and private decks; most tents also include an ensuite bathroom. 

Like all Under Canvas properties, Under Canvas Grand Canyon is committed to protecting and preserving the night sky for present and future generations. The lighting at Under Canvas Grand Canyon has been purposefully selected and installed to minimize impact on the surrounding environment while, at the same time, enhancing the guest experience. Guests interested in experiencing the magic of the night sky can sleep in Stargazer Tents (featuring sky-viewing windows perfect for constellation spotting), join guided astronomy hikes and talks, look for shooting stars through the camp’s telescope, or simply enjoy the jaw-dropping beauty of the sky from the comfort of their private deck.
