Moab Springs Ranch Covid Update, July 1, 2021. 

YES! Our pool and spa are open to adult vaccinated guests and their immediate family. Maximum number is limited to 30 people on a first come basis, and we ask all guests to respect Covid guidelines for distancing between guest parties. We will monitor the pool attendance hourly.

Pool and Spa Schedule and Conditions: 

The opening will be conditional and provisional. We will be observing the pool area to see if users are respecting Covid guidelines for distancing and safety. If not we may close the pool and spa immediately. 

The pool will be open to adult guests and Owners who have been vaccinated for Covid 19 and their immediate families. The pool and spa area will be restricted to 30 persons maximum on a first come, first served basis. We understand children younger than 12 cannot yet be vaccinated, and for that reason we will continue to enforce distancing between unrelated groups and families and will limit the total number of persons within the pol-spa enclosure. We are relying on an honor system for vaccination status. We will be observing user numbers and distancing on approximately an hourly basis. 

For 16 months Moab Springs Ranch has been committed to meeting and exceeding all recommended safety measures to protect our visitors and staff from infection with Covid 19. Our commitment has created a safe experience for our guests. That commitment continues.

Moab Springs Ranch is a small, perfectly located, one-of-a-kind resort crafted to enhance its natural setting within Moab’s first ranch. For millennia this site has been a desert oasis with flowing springs and majestic cottonwood trees. We are not a national chain hotel.

For the convenience of our guests, we've designed the resort with parking next to each unit. We have limited parking beyond the dedicated parking spots.

Extra Parking Spaces
Additional parking (3rd and 4th spaces) is limited, on a first-come basis, is pre-assigned, requires a permit from our office and may be subject to an additional fee of $20 per space per night. If all spots are taken, or if you do not approve of the fee, our office will assist you with finding off-site parking options.

Trailers under 20 feet are permitted if they can fit completely in your unit’s dedicated parking spaces. If bringing your trailer requires the need for a 3rd or 4th parking space, you will need to obtain a permit for $20 per night per space. If your trailer is longer than 20 feet, we will do our best to help you find off-site parking.
