Resort-Style Living at Summit Vista

February 15, 2023

Resort-style living is becoming an increasingly popular living option for older adults with an active lifestyle. As people are adopting better, healthier habits, they’re searching for a community that offers convenient ways to spend time on wellness, physical fitness, nutrition … and just plain enjoy the spoils of retirement.


So if you’re searching for the ticket to an exceptional retirement, check out nine ways resort-style living at a community like Summit Vista can put you on the right path to the lifestyle you’ve always wanted.


1. Maintenance-free lifestyle


Never needing to mow your lawn, shovel snow, or worry about home repair and maintenance costs is one  way resort-style living gives you more time to enjoy your retirement. You also don’t need to worry about other hassles of homeownership like property taxes, insurance or HOA fees.


We take things a step further at our resort-style retirement community in Salt Lake City, UT, by featuring maintenance-free floor plans that include electricity, basic cable TV, landline telephone, internet, trash, water, sewer service, and routine appliance and apartment maintenance.


2. Desirable location


Resort-style retirement communities allow you to feel you’re on vacation, while also giving convenient access to the surrounding area or the ability to live close to your loved ones. You can reap the rewards of resort-style living, without having to put your life on pause.


Summit Vista is just minutes away from several grocery stores, pharmacies, parks, movie theaters, and shopping malls, including Valley Fair and The Crossroads of Taylorsville.


3. Amenities for your lifestyle


Resort-style living offers amenities that match your active lifestyle right outside your doorstep. At Summit Vista, instead of traveling across town to go to the gym, use a public pool or attend a yoga class, you can simply walk to our fitness center that features group classes, a sparkling pool, hot tub and more.


You can also schedule time with a personal trainer, attend wellness-focused activities, join resident-driven activities, attend worship services, and enroll in lifelong learning courses. No matter your interests, our community offers a variety of amenities to enrich your mind, body and soul.


4. Amenities for fun


Though amenities to enrich your daily life are essential to a fulfilling retirement, amenities for sheer enjoyment, recreation and social engagement are also important.


At Summit Vista, not only do we offer plenty of amenities to match your lifestyle, but we also have resort-style amenities that are fun! For instance, you can spend time soaking up sunshine in our outdoor garden areas, working on your golf swing on our private putting green, creating a masterpiece in our arts and crafts studio, or making friends at one of our many vibrant social events.


5. Timesaving services


Resort-style amenities are best enjoyed uninterrupted by chores and errands. Communities like Summit Vista offer timesaving services and amenities, so you can pack your day with things you actually like to do.


Our senior living community offers services like scheduled and private transportation and housekeeping, and amenities that add even more convenience to your retirement like an on-site bank, hair and nail salon, and marketplace.


6. Spacious and stylish floor plans


Floor plans in resort-style senior living communities are beautifully appointed. From open-floor layouts and extra rooms to gorgeous mountain views and capacious balconies, you’ll find a home that suits your lifestyle.


Each beautiful apartment home at Summit Vista is designed to be spacious, stylish and comfortable. With dozens of floor plans to choose from and a variety of customizable finishes, creating the perfect home to fit your needs is all part of resort-style living in our community.


7. Top-notch security


Traveling is a big part of retirement for many older adults, and it’s stressful to leave a large private home behind when you’re away. Resort-style senior living communities are the perfect place for a lock-and-leave lifestyle, because they often feature top-notch security to protect your apartment home from intruders, natural disasters and emergency maintenance issues.


Summit Vista provides round-the-clock security by trained first responders, 24/7 guarded entrance and an emergency alert system in each home. We also provide front desk concierge and package services, so you never have to worry about deliveries remaining on your doorstep while you’re on vacation.


8. Delicious dining options


Shopping for nutritious ingredients, cooking a nutritious meal and cleaning up afterward can be one of the most exhausting parts of anyone’s daily routine. Resort-style living features dining options that take the work out of eating a good meal.


Though your apartment home at Summit Vista is equipped with a full kitchen, our three restaurants offer relief from your daily cooking duties. You can choose from a variety of menus that feature decadent gourmet cuisine, healthy options, comfort foods and accommodations for special diets.


9. Resort-style living plus a continuum of care


Moving into independent living at a Life Plan Community allows you to take full advantage of everything they offer, with peace of mind knowing  a continuum of care is available if you ever need it.  Higher levels of care like assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing can ensure you receive the care you need while remaining in the same community you’ve come to know and love.


At Summit Vista,  Utah’s first Life Plan Community, we’re dedicated to raising senior living standards. That’s why we make it our mission to provide a continuum of coordinated and comprehensive health and wellness services, all easily within reach with two sensible pricing options to meet your financial needs.
