Set just 30 miles north of Tucson, this 253-room resort feels blissfully apart. It’s the kind of place where activities are encouraged—there are, for example, 20 miles of hiking trails and 27 holes of Jack Nicklaus–designed golf—but you’re never overscheduled. This is high Sonoran desert territory, and much of the joy comes from gazing out at the property’s 850 acres, dotted with cacti and boulders and rolling into the Tortolita Mountains. Snag a seat around a fire pit at Core Kitchen & Wine Bar, which has its own citrus grove (try the chili-encrusted steak with poblano coulis), or at the spa—it’s one of the best in the state, with eco-minded treatments like the Aloe Mint Hydrating massage.

Room to Book:

Canyon View rooms face the Saguaro Forest.  

Insider Tip:

Check out the ancient Hohokam tribe petroglyphs on the rock formations overlooking the spa.
