KEYAH GRANDE in Pagosa Springs, Colorado

With the onset of winter upon us, no one can blame you for being a little stressed out.  It happens to everyone, but don’t worry.  The answer to all of your problems is located roughly 2,000 miles west in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  Barely over a year old, Keyah Grande provides guests with an array of outdoor activities in a beautiful natural setting.

Set against the tranquil backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, Keyah Grande features a combination of luxury, service, and comfort that, when combined with the level of natural beauty that can be found throughout the property, makes for a uniquely peaceful and rejuvenating vacation experience.

The land of Keyah Grande affords many opportunities for recreation.  From fly fishing, nature walks, and skeetshooting to more taxing activities such as snowshoe hiking, horseback riding, snowmobiling, and ATV tours, Keyah Grande gives visitors a number of options to consider from the moment they arrive until the second they leave.  Aside from these on-site activities, Keyah Grande also provides transportation to nearby locales like Mesa Verde National Park, Durango Ski Resort, and Chimney Rock Archaelogical Site.  Nearby golf courses, hot air balloon rides, and white water rafting sites all welcome Keyah Grande visitors.

In keeping with the natural setting of Keyah Grande, the Spa gives visitors a choice of three types of treatments—forest, mountain, or water—each with their own unique, relaxing characteristics.  Between the satisfying massages, rejuvenating wraps, and refreshing aromatherapy treatments, guests will feel like they died and went to heaven.

Keyah Grande covers 4,000 acres of land, yet never houses more than 16 guests.  This allows for personalized service on every level.  The rooms of Keyah Grande are themed, with each one featuring a motif from a different part of the globe.  Guests may choose between the China, Japan, Santa Fe, France, America, England, Spain, and South Pacific suites, each bringing with it a distinctly different feel and ambience each time you visit.

The cuisine of Keyah Grande is something to savor.  Led by the husband and wife team of H. Alex Talbot and Aki Kamozawa, the menu of Keyah Grande (which changes daily) features the choicest ingredients, such as Diana St. Claire’s Vermont Animal Farm butter, which is used in only two other restaurants in the world.  The selection of dishes is both inventive and exciting, with entrees like Braised Giant Squid with smoked apple tortellini, toasted chestnuts, and grated Perigord truffle leading the way.  Factor in a selection of over 2,500 bottles of wine from France, Italy, Spain, Australia, and the Western hemisphere, and you can see why dining at Keyah Grande is such a treat.

The time is always right to visit Keyah Grande.  Whether you prefer the snowy winters with skiing galore, the toasty summer days that are perfect for Keyah Grande’s many outdoor activites, or the cool calmness of spring or autumn, Keyah Grande will be waiting for you.  For more information, or to book your trip, visit or call 970-731-1160.
