Located on more than 150 acres in the iconic Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona, Canyon Ranch was once the heart of a large, working cattle ranch, and, then from the ‘30s through the ‘70s, a rustic guest ranch. Sunny weather year-round, clear desert air and immediate access to nearby canyons and to the towering Santa Catalina Mountains – plus incredible facilities – make it a classic spa vacation setting, where hiking, biking, outdoor dining and lounging by the pool are possible year-round.
While strolling around the stunning grounds, you might get a glimpse of a charming quail family or the roadrunners with which we share this magnificent natural environment. You’ll be fascinated by the cultural and historical richness of this much filmed and photographed corner of the world, and the lofty cactus and vast desert skies cannot fail to inspire you.
When you arrive at Canyon Ranch in Tucson, you’ll enter the welcoming Clubhouse at the center of the resort. Here, you can kick back next to the original stone fireplace of the old guest ranch, get a healthy drink and snack at the beverage bar outside the Main Dining Room, and join us for delicious mock cocktails before dinner in the Wicker Lounge and for live entertainment in the evenings.
Check your email, browse the Library or watch a movie in the Media Center – or just read or play a board game and watch your fellow guests go by. Sit by the Flagstone Pool with a glass of iced tea at the lovely Double U Café, indoors or outside, just a few yards from the Clubhouse.
Guests in the Life Enhancement Program® gather, enjoy meals and work out at the home-like Life Enhancement Center®, “the heart of Canyon Ranch.”
