The Peaks Resort and Spa Telluride is situated in the heart of the stunning San Juan Mountains, offering an unparalleled retreat just steps away from Telluride's renowned slopes. Approximately one hour from Montrose Regional Airport and the hotel is conveniently located a quick ten-minute drive to downtown Telluride.
During the site tour of The Peaks Resort and Spa Telluride, I learned about the diverse range of accommodations, comprising 160 guest rooms, including 28 suites, along with 30 two, three, four, and five-bedroom condos and cabins, each offering breathtaking mountain vistas. The standard guest room, known as The Vista, is complemented by three distinct suite options – The Alpenglow, The Grand Alpine Vista, and the San Sophia – with The Grand and San Sophia providing an expansive 820 square feet of space. Every room features high-speed wireless internet, a mini fridge, a large TV and luxurious bathrooms with generous tubs, showers, plus plush robes and slippers, ensuring guests unwind in comfort after a day of skiing or snowboarding.
While the rooms offer a superb experience, it's worth noting that standard rooms do not include microwaves.
The resort's standout feature is its expansive 42,000-square-foot spa, the largest in Colorado, boasting 32 treatment rooms and an array of signature therapies. The spa experience extends beyond treatments, encompassing a full-service salon, a well-equipped fitness center with Pilates and yoga studios, a three-lane lap pool, an indoor climbing wall, gender-specific steam rooms, saunas, Roman tubs, hot tubs and an indoor/outdoor heated pool featuring Telluride's exclusive water slide.
During winter, the Ski Valet service adds a touch of luxury, allowing guests to ski directly to the building. The resort's Ski Valet team ensures skis are stored and boots kept warm and dry for a hassle-free departure onto "The Peaks," the hotel's private ski run.
For recreational fun, the 1,600-square-foot game room caters to guests of all ages, providing a state-of-the-art space to indulge in playful activities.
With a total of 9,000 square feet of indoor meeting space (plus an additional 10,000 square feet outdoors), The Peaks Resort is well-equipped to accommodate various meeting and banquet needs, making it an ideal venue for corporate events or dream weddings.
During the summer months, guests can enjoy outdoor activities, including an 18-hole par-70, 6,574-yard golf course and the newly introduced Telluride Racket Club featuring four red synthetic CaliClay tennis courts and four pickleball courts. The Peaks Resort and Spa Telluride truly offers a comprehensive and luxurious experience for every guest, spanning wellness, recreation, meetings and leisure.
Our exploration of the dining options at The Peaks Resort revealed two exceptional establishments catering to diverse tastes.
Nestled within The Peaks Resort, Altezza Restaurant offers guests a laid-back mountain dining experience featuring locally sourced ingredients and stunning panoramic views. The restaurant's outdoor deck, adjacent to the full-service Palmyra Bar, provides over 3,000 square feet of prime happy hour and après-ski vistas. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Altezza is a perfect culinary retreat. During winter, guests can savor the signature daily breakfast buffet before hitting the slopes or ski in later for a drink and bite while enjoying live music on the patio.
Silver Pick Coffee
For a delightful start to the day, Silver Pick Coffee, The Peaks' dedicated coffee shop located within the resort next to the spa, offers an array of specialty espresso drinks, smoothies, pastries, breakfast sandwiches and healthy grab-and-go snacks. Whether guests are seeking a caffeine fix or a quick and nourishing bite, Silver Pick Coffee ensures a convenient and satisfying start to the day.
Both dining options contribute to The Peaks Resort and Spa Telluride's commitment to providing a diverse and memorable culinary experience for guests during their stay.
