Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa is the product of John Hendricks’ vision – that is to create a resort that does not only make for a great relaxation getaway, but also make for a place where people can experience adventure, education and leisure altogether.
John Hendricks, the same founder of the Discovery Channel, immediately got captivated upon stepping foot on Gateway, Colorado in 1995. Though it took him some time before he finally saw the beautiful red rock country his father used to tell him in his childhood, he knew then and there that that is the place where he would settle down.
Wanting to share the same Discovery philosophy to other people, he established a resort that would not only serve as place to relax but also a place where people can explore their curiosity.
