MOAB, Utah—Recently awarded 2007’s “Most Excellent Ranch” by the most trusted name in travel publishing, Condé Nast Johansens, Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa in Moab, Utah adds yet another honor to its growing list of prestigious recognitions.
Selected by the Condé Nast Johansens’ team of inspectors, readers, and hotel guests from the 310 properties featured in the 2007 Recommended Hotels, Inns, Resorts & Spas – The Americas, Atlantic, Caribbean, Pacific, Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa is one of the mere eight percent of properties presented with the international luxury guide’s Award of Excellence. According to Condé Nast Johansens, Sorrel River’s recognition as the “Most Excellent Ranch” is based on excellence, unique style, cuisine, diverse character, and exceptional location.
Situated alongside the beautiful Colorado River and surrounded by Moab’s stunning red rocks, it’s not hard to understand why Sorrel River Ranch & Spa offers such appeal to discerning guests in search of both luxury and adventure.
In a class of its own, Sorrel River Ranch is southern Utah’s finest resort, and has reigned as the Rocky Mountain region’s World Travel Award winner since 2004. As the Utah’s only member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and as the only AAA Four-Diamond resort in Southeastern Utah, Sorrel River is the choice destination for travelers looking for exquisite accommodations while touring the national parks of the southwest.
Sorrel River Ranch’s remote location among vast desert landscapes and beneath starry skies exemplifies Condé Nast Johansens’ “exceptional location” requirements, while the resort’s “unique style” is evident at first glance, exuding a true western ambience with riverfront and mountain-view accommodations that offer amenities such as jetted hydrotherapy bathtubs, kitchenettes, private decks, and large picture windows overlooking the Professor Valley.
The seamless blend of adventurous thrill and relaxation available to guests defines Sorrel River’s “diverse character.” Whether hiking Moab’s canyon country or horseback riding the famous Slickrock Trail, Sorrel River Ranch offers a setting that is every bit as idyllic as the nearby Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. After a day of exploration, weary travelers find rejuvenation at the Spa at Sorrel River, which offers a warm and intimate ambiance complementing the variety of massages and body treatments available.
Rounding out the ranch’s perfect proportions is the Sorrel River Grill, whose notably scrumptious gourmet “cuisine” is a highlight of any guest’s stay. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner overlooking the red rock buttes and Colorado River, guests can choose to savor their special dining experience in the elegant dining room or outside in the fresh desert air.
Just a four and a half hour drive or an easy forty-five minute flight from Salt Lake City, Sorrel River Ranch is an off-the-beaten-path escape perfect for those who wish to leave the urban jungle behind them. Twenty scenic miles from the center of Moab, Sorrel River provides an oasis in the desert where guests can indulge in a luxurious week at the resort or revive their spirits with even a short getaway.
