"One of the country's top resorts" -- Fodor's

Why We Love It

  • Guest rooms are adobe casitas, which were recently renovated, with wood-burning adobe-style fireplaces, beamed ceilings and private wood patios
  • Two championship golf courses, a 33,000-square-foot spa and star-gazing walks led by an astronomer
  • The stunning Sonoran Desert feels secluded, but Old Town Scottsdale is only a 35-minute drive away
  • Six different on-site dining options including Mexican fare and healthy spa grub


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. It was also named the "Best Hotel in Arizona" by Travel + Leisure in 2017.

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 (included in the resort fee), 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

Other Comments
We booked this spot because of the wood burning fireplace. When we checked in we asked for firewood and they said they would send some right over. We waited several hours and hadn't received any, so we asked again and they said they would send it to our room. Well we were there 2 nights and asked 4 times for firewood and never received any. So the entire reason we chose this resort became pointless and frustrating.
