Hotel or Resort? What’s the Difference?

Deciding where to stay for your next vacation in Southern Utah can be overwhelming. With so many choices, it can be hard to determine the best option. One important question is whether a resort or a hotel is right for you and your family. Sand Hollow Resort is here to help you understand the benefits of staying at a resort versus a hotel.

What is a Resort?

A resort provides all of your travel needs in one place. At Sand Hollow Resort, guests can enjoy an on-site restaurant, The Grille; an award-winning golf course, The Championship Course; a pro shop; and beautiful venues for hosting events! Sand Hollow Resort also offers several recreational facilities including swimming pools, hot tubs, and a fitness room.

What are the Main Differences Between a Hotel and a Resort?

  1. Location

Hotels are usually located near main roads and airports for easy access to those who are looking for ease and convenience for a short stay. Resorts, like Sand Hollow Resort, tend to be located in the midst of picturesque surroundings, providing privacy and isolated luxury for resort guests who typically plan to stay several days.

  1. Services and Amenities

Hotels primarily serve short-stay guests who only require basic necessities, like a bed and a bathroom. Resorts provide extra comfort and amenities so guests can truly unwind and escape reality for a few days. Sand Hollow Resort provides vacation rentals with multiple rooms, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen and living space, providing everything a vacationer would need for a relaxing stay.

  1. Accommodations

If you are traveling with a large group, booking several hotel rooms to accommodate everyone can get expensive. When you stay at a resort, like Sand Hollow Resort, everyone is able to stay in the same vacation rental for practically the same cost of one hotel room! 

Why Sand Hollow Resort is the Best Option

Sand Hollow Resort is dedicated to providing the best comforts and features for our guests, including:

  • Furnishings

All of our vacation rentals come fully-furnished with everything you’ll need to enjoy an unforgettable vacation. The vacation rentals include full kitchens, plush beds, oversize soaking tubs, large outdoor patios, and spacious living rooms among other amenities.

  • Privacy and Space

The average hotel room is only 350 square feet, which doesn’t provide a lot of space for relaxing, not to mention privacy.  Our vacation rentals range in size from 600 to 3,000 sq. ft. so you and your guests will have plenty of room to enjoy downtime, privacy, and the ability to recharge and relax for the next day’s adventure.

  • Resort Activities

At Sand Hollow Resort, you can easily kick boredom to the curb with all of the on-site activities. From weekly events like Paint Night and Taco Tuesday to golf on the Championship Course and soaking up sun at the swimming pool, you’ll never run out of things to do at the resort.
