Set amongst the most spectacular scenery near southern Utah’s famous arches and red rock mountains, Sorrel River Ranch Resort and Spa sits on 240 acres of wide open ranch land tucked away along the Colorado River. Experience a place that uses “luxurious” and “rustic” in the same sentence. Our ranch resort offers personalized service and wonderful accommodations. Here at our luxury hotel in Moab you’ll find the perfect blend of awe-inspiring western wilderness, highlighted by farm-to-table cuisine, decadent spa treatments, glorious bath amenities, in-room fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs.
Complimentary activities are available throughout the year, including assorted lawn games: ladder golf, horseshoes, bocce ball, cornhole toss. We also offer ball games such as outdoor tennis, table tennis, volleyball, and basketball. In addition, a seemingly endless variety of Moab adventures are available à la carte. We recommend viewing our calendar to see what is going on during your stay.

Kids of all ages are in for a special treat at Sorrel River Ranch. Our most popular attraction is the on-site petting zoo where kids can help our wranglers feed miniature horses, potbellied pigs, chickens, goats, and rabbits. We also offer pony rides for a nominal charge and complimentary for children under 3. Additionally, kids can partake in an array of lawn games, spend time riding bikes around the ranch or take a swim in the heated outdoor pool. For those that want more instruction, we offer several Wrangler camps.

Our reservations specialists can assist you with choosing the perfect accommodation based on the number of people in your group.
The weather in our “high desert” location is as varied as its landscape. During the summer, you can expect dry, hot days, with evenings and nights cooling down pleasantly. Winter months are usually in the 40s during the day and dip into the 20s at night. Spring flowers arrive early and sunset are spectacular all year round.
