Owner description: The Kayenta Community, in southern Utah's red rock country, is a tranquil enclave surrounded by protected lands.A 2,000 acre master planned community of fine homes, custom building sites and community amenities, is located 7 miles west of St. George, Utah. Kayenta is a unique departure from the norm, focused on moderate land use, moderate-sustainable growth, and an appreciation for our magnificent natural setting. Nearby, residents find adventure in the southwest's abundance of places to explore. Zion National Park, Snow Canyon and Bryce Canyon National Park are within view. While just beyond the horizon, adventure seekers will discover places like the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Las Vegas.

Every time we go into southern Utah we have to stop at this small but lovely Art Colony. The Artists and small shop owners have always been friendly even when we did not buy anything. We would wander in and out of the shops and they were willing to talk about the art and the artists. The people who live in this community are interested in art and some are the artists who sell their art work in these small shops. The artists produce top quality pieces. There are oil painting, water color painting, sculptures, outdoor art, handmade jewelry and pottery, photographs of the area; a real feast for the eyes. If you appreciate original art, you will enjoy this charming village, they even have a cafe to stop in for something light. The houses in this area have to conform to a certain architecture. These house's look like adobe homes, they can be different in their structure but they have to be the same color (more like the landscape) and they all have to use the same materials so it looks like one real community. It is a wonderful and charming stop for a couple of hours.

Well, if you're into expensive Southwestern art then you'll probably like Kayenta. It's a very small area, so it'll only take you 15 min to walk it (unless you actually go into the shops).

The art shops were interesting with a good variety of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, etc, but they were very expensive. Fun to look at, but not worth buying. Some are the same artists that are featured at other exclusive art shops in the western US like Doug Adams' bell sculptures. We were already in the St George area, so it was worth a short drive. I certainly wouldn't travel far for it.

They have a shop to showcase and sell the real estate in the area, based on eco-friendly desert living, low profile, no night lighting. Not something I care for at all.

If you like over priced art and over priced food, and a bunch of stuck up nature lovers then this is your place. They are rude and opinion aided, there is nothing to see except the red rocks and Utah has plenty of those in a lot better locations. I would never waist my time here.

There is only one restaurant, but it was good! It was nice to walk around the little artist community to enjoy (& I found some goodies to buy) the area.
Nearby is Snow Canyon State Park, which is good to see on the same day. Enjoy more of nature's magic drving through or walking the trails.
