Fodor's Expert Review Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa

Hwy. 128, Moab, Utah, 84532, USA Fodor's Choice

One of the premier luxury resorts in the Southwest, this swanky wellness retreat on the banks of the Colorado River is the place to be when you need to escape the modern world—so long as money is no object. It's 17 miles from Moab, and that remote setting is a big part of the draw. People come for the stunning landscape studded with towering red cliffs, buttes, and spires. The connected cabins have tall ceilings and are furnished with hefty log beds, tables, and chairs, along with western art and rugs. Some even have bathtubs with sweeping views of the beauty just out your door. In addition to a full slate of spa services, optional activities include river rafting, mountain biking, and even taking a UTV out for a spin. Kids can shadow the ranch's wranglers and watch as they feed the many animals that call the ranch home. The Sorrel River Grill offers upscale meals with seasonal ingredients, which you can eat on a pleasant porch overlooking the river. For a real treat, reserve one of the Homestake Dinners, multicourse meals made with ingredients sourced from the ranch and local farms, served family-style to small groups alfresco in the summer and early fall.
