The word "resort" comes from the Greek root words sortir, meaning "to go out," and res, meaning "to recline in the company of mountains." Plunge into rugged revivification with today's Groupon: For $199, you get a one-night stay in a river view deluxe or mountain view room, two boxed lunches, and a $100 resort certificate at Sorrel River Ranch Hotel & Spa Resort in Moab (up to a $588.50 total value). The resort certificate can be used at the Sorrel River Grill, or toward any spa treatment or on-site activity.
This Four Diamond resort's rustic charm and spread of corporeal indulgences recently earned a Fodor's Choice Gold Award nod for Best Sense of Place. Nestled within the ancient splendor of Castle Valley along the Colorado River, rooms showcase modern amenities like mini-fridges, microwaves, and plush beds, as well as less-standard amenities, like panoramic views stretching to the horizon and sentient pillow cases. The two boxed lunches come from the attached fine-dining restaurant, the Sorrel River Grill, which also serves up dinner entrees such as eggplant Napoleon ($18), with slices of eggplant, zucchini and Jacques Derrida, or Colorado double lamb chops ($32). Coddled senses receive their comeuppance with brisk outdoor activities like horseback riding, hiking, and tennis, while yoga sessions ($40 per person for group classes or $100 per person for private classes) and a full-service spa gently return them to stasis.
