More Room Types

Located on 1,300 acres of the Sonoran Desert, the Boulders Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton -- a AAA 4-Diamond and 5-Star resort -- is known as much for its stunning scenery with boulder formations and cacti as its top-notch facilities, which recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation.

Swanky rooms and suites are situated within charming adobe casitas and come with a wood-burning adobe-style fireplace, a private wooden patio or balcony and wood-beamed ceilings. Casitas were recently renovated to create a more modern look with calming neutral earth tones and Native American-inspired furnishings and decor. Bathrooms are just as luxurious, with fluffy robes and towels, as well as a separate soaking tub and a stand-alone shower. One-, two- and three-bedroom villas are also available.

Designed by famed course architect Jay Morrish, the two championship courses on site are surrounded by mountain views. Four pools and a tennis center with eight courts keep non-golfers busy, and the 33,000-square-foot spa is especially popular. The real highlights are the private outdoor Watsu water lounge (used by a therapist who guides you through the water with a massage and stretching), meditative labyrinth walking path and Southwest-inspired treatments, such as a warm turquoise clay wrap. Don’t miss the fitness classes (extra charge applies), which include yoga, cycling and Pilates as well as other activities such as personal training, boulder climbing and mountain biking.

No less than six dining venues are spread across the hotel, golf club, spa and the charming El Pedregal shopping complex nearby (free shuttle transfers are available). El Pedregal also has a number of boutiques to explore, and the shops and restaurants of Old Town Scottsdale are only a 35-minute drive.

A mandatory charge of $30 per night applies and will be added to the room rate. This covers basic guest internet access; fitness center access; fitness classes; gratuities for bell service, concierge and shuttle drivers; club storage; local and toll-free calls; and on-property shuttle. Charges will be added to your bill at the hotel.

From the press:
  • "One of the country's top resorts -- and one of the few with an all-organic approach -- hides amid hill-size, 12-million-year-old granite boulders and the lush Sonoran Desert" -- Fodor's
  • "Pathways wind through the 1,300-acre desert property in North Scottsdale, where you’ll find quail, jackrabbits, lizards, and javelina." -- Travel + Leisure
