Canyon Ranch in Tucson

Tucson, Arizona, United States of America

Located in the lush Sonoran Desert, the resort is nestled in the foothills northeast of Tucson, which basks in 360 days of sunshine each year. Southwestern-style one-story rooms and suites are spread throughout the grounds and built in harmony with the desert terrain. The premiere Casa Grande is a freestanding home that can house up to six people. The award-winning cuisine at Canyon Ranch is prepared by renowned chefs, who work with top nutritionists to create delicious, healthy dishes. The resort features a clubhouse, health-and-healing facilities, a life-enhancement center, an aquatic center, and a golf-performance center, in addition to a spa complex. The 80,000-square-foot spa features state-of-the-art equipment and high-quality services, including many geared specifically to men. Guests may select a program focused on executive health, peak athletic performance, or golf, or seek wellness advice from an integrated team of health specialists, including board-certified physicians, acupuncturists, healing touch practitioners, and podiatrists.
