What started off as the private residence of cowboy artist Lon Megargee in the 1930s is today the hub of the intimate and luxurious Hermosa Inn. Explore the six acres of scenic desert landscape, including an outdoor pool, which comes in handy during sunny days in Arizona. The inn is was chosen by Conde Nast Traveler readers as a Top 25 Southwest Resort (2013).

It's located in the beautiful Paradise Valley, a 20-minute drive from the centre of Phoenix and 15 minutes from the shops and restaurants of Scottsdale.

Each morning, head to the Last Drop at the Hermosa to order breakfast from an a la carte menu. Selections include items like a build-your-own omelette and short rib hash. Stop back in the afternoon to grab a bite of lunch and sip a hand-crafted cocktail. For dinner and dessert options, visit Lon’s restaurant, rated “extraordinary to perfection” by Zagat in the categories of food, décor and service. Since it implements a garden-to-plate philosophy, there is a half-acre of land near the kitchen used to source ingredients for the dishes.

In the evenings, relax in a hacienda-style casita. Casitas measure 400 square feet or more and provide Southwest décor and patios. All casitas feature walk-in showers and fireplaces, and some have vaulted ceilings with skylights.

Venture through the Valley of the Sun with packages from top golf courses, Travel + Leisure-praised spas and swanky dining experiences.
