Outdoor enthusiasts will love the property's abundant adventure activities and proximity to Arches National Park
Travelers say the resort's food and customer were not on par with the high room rates
Sitting on the banks of the Colorado River amid Moab, Utah's famous red buttes, the Sorrel River Ranch Resort and Spa offers guests easy access to natural attractions like Arches National Park. The resort also features a variety of adventurous activities, from horseback riding to hay rides to bocce ball. Or, if you prefer to do nothing at all, spend your days soaking up the sun by the pool or massaging your cares away at the spa. And at the end of the day, grab a bite to eat at the River Grill Restaurant, where you can enjoy great views alongside fresh farm-to-table cuisine. Though the location of this property isn't exactly convenient (about 250 miles southeast of Salt Lake City), guests do appreciate the seclusion, claiming that it makes quieter resort activities like hiking and yoga more enjoyable. However, some guests note that the customer service and the food at the restaurant do not match the 5-star price tag.
