Set between Moab’s majestic red stone rocks and the calm waters of the Colorado River, Sorrel River Ranch boasts cinema worthy scenery. Offering up a slice of luxury in the midst of Utah’s dramatic desert landscapes, we could happily while away our time in this intimate 55 suite boutique retreat. Spend your days cycling your stunning surroundings and sampling as many of the ultra-indulgent spa treatments as possible, before heading off for sundowners served up alongside awe-inspiring views.

Location

Occupying a particularly impressive stretch of land in western Utah, Moab certainly lives up to its biblical name. From the vivid red rock formations of Arches National Park, to the colourful landscapes of Canyonlands, there’s a whole lot of terrain to explore around Sorrel River’s 160 acre perimeter of green pastures.

Your Room

Check into a River View Spa Suite and soak up the serenity of your surroundings from your sprawling outdoor terrace set overlooking the Colorado River. Curl up in front of the fire in your spacious wood-beamed living room or slip into a sumptuous bubble bath before retreating to the comfort of your giant king-size bed. The ideal retreat after a busy day out and about exploring, you’re guaranteed a good night’s sleep here.

Why we like it

To be utterly honest, we were sold on Sorrel River at first sight. But if you are in search of a few extra incentives you’ll certainly find them in the farm-to-plate food. Enjoy tapas and candlelit cocktails at the relaxed River Deck Restaurant, or head for the River Grill Restaurant for classic American dishes prepared with fresh produce grown on-site and served alongside an extensive wine menu.
