More Room Types

In a state dotted with lavish desert resorts, only a few have received the prestigious AAA 5-Diamond award. The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is one of these winners, and likely the most unique, with a remote location amid a sea of giant cacti.

It's a 35-minute drive north of downtown Tucson by car (or 45 minutes from the Tucson airport). The property set-up is more like a modern mountain lodge compared to the Southwestern casita style that dominates much of the Arizona resort scene. While the design is sleek with clean lines, it blends well with the surrounding natural landscape. Rooms are high-end but comfortable -- each includes a deep soaking tub and private balcony.

Couples and those traveling as a family will be happy here. For adult peace and quiet, there's poolside cabanas, fire pits, 27 holes of manicured greens and treatment rooms within the No. 1 Spa in Arizona, according to the readers of Condé Nast Traveler. There's an on-site kids club, splash pad and 235-foot waterslide that shoots down the mountain through boulders and cacti.

Past guests rave about the impeccable service and friendly staff. In return for pricey rates and resort fees, guests can expect 5-star treatment. Resort fees are $50 plus tax per night and cover fitness classes, valet parking, Wi-Fi, use of mountain bikes, tennis courts, guided walks and more.

Guests should know that the resort's serene location means that the closest shopping and dining is at least 20 minutes away by car. The hotel offers a solid variety of excellent dining and drinking options, with five restaurants ranging from sushi to pub grub to Latin fare.

From the press:
  • "Yet despite all of its positive aspects, guests say it's the staff's friendliness that truly makes their stays memorable" -- U.S. News & World Report
  • "You'll feel like you've stepped into the wild, wild, west" -- Conde Nast Traveler
