A luxurious retreat conveniently located just minutes from downtown Colorado Springs, The Broadmoor covers 3,000 acres with 700 rooms and suites; three golf courses including the legendary East Course; and three swimming pools including an infinity-edge pool at the north end of Cheyenne Lake, complete with waterslides built into Slide Mountain, a children’s wading pool, two 14-person hot tubs and 13 cabanas.

The BROADMOOR’s state-of-the-art fitness center provides personal training and a variety of classes including pilates, yoga and AquaFit.

Other activities available during a stay at The BROADMOOR are horseback riding, fly fishing, rock climbing, jeep tours, white water rafting and hot air ballooning.

TAG Galyean, master architect for some of the most exclusive resort spas in the world, has brought his particular magic to The Spa at The BROADMOOR by designing not only the interior space, but two signature hydrotherapy treatments and a showpiece couples’ massage room. The Spa offers signature personalized treatments for men and women in pampered elegance.

With 14 restaurants, cafés and lounges to choose from, The Broadmoor offers everything from fine dining to family, alfresco and bistro-style fare. Internationally renowned restaurant designer Adam D.

The first and only AAA Five-Diamond restaurant in Colorado, Penrose Room also features a specially designed Chef’s Table and Demonstration Kitchen, with a wrap-around balcony overlooking the golf course.
