 The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection, the luxury private ranch retreat surrounded by panoramic views and pristine wilderness outside of Park City, was recognized on Travel + Leisure’s 2022 World’s Best Awards list as the “No. 1 Best Resort Hotel in Utah,” “No. 93 Best Hotel in The World,” and “No. 10 Best Resort in The Continental U.S.,” as voted by the industry’s most discerning travelers. The property was presented with the same “Best Resort Hotel in Utah” award last year, which was the first time the magazine had ever introduced the best in Utah category.

“What an honor to be awarded ‘Best in Utah’ for the second year in a row by this prestigious publication and its readers,” said Joe Ogdie, general manager, The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Utah is home to many incredible properties, so this is a reflection of the remarkable team we have here at Blue Sky. Their dedication, passion and hospitality is unwavering.”

The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection is among the West’s greatest destinations just 35 minutes from Salt Lake City Airport. Set on 3,500 private acres surrounded by dramatic soaring peaks of the Wasatch Mountain Range, high alpine fields, lush hillsides and a spring-fed creek, the 46-room resort invites guests to reconnect with the natural environment in understated elegance, with organic architecture that showcases the majesty of the land. Amenities include a collection of immersive family outdoor adventures, including a kid’s camp, hiking, fly fishing, clay shooting, horseback riding and heli-skiing in the winter or heli-mountain biking, yoga or meditation in the summer. The restaurant, YUTA, is helmed by James Beard award winning chef Galen Zamarra, who serves cuisine sourced by onsite farms and gardens led by an all-female farm team, which practices regenerative methods by hand using zero machinery. For the parents, deeply restorative treatments at Edge Spa complement Blue Sky’s active outdoor adventures.
