There are so many services, you may need to spend some time to get just what you really want. The food is great! The people are awesome, and the pool is the best on property. You can regenerate your soul here.

With eager anticipation and giddy excitement, my husband and I walked trough the doors to the Waldorf Astoria Spa. Without Ashley (Spa reservations agent) who not only took great care of us in suggesting the couples massage, we would not have had one of the best spa experiences ever. I thank you for being knowledgeable and anticipating our needs and... More

Three of us went hiking with Rico while we were staying at The Boulders. Rico was just great! He listened to us about the type of hike we wanted, and provided us with that and more. Rico is an excellent tour guide, and when we're back at The Boulders we'll be seeing him again!

Enjoyed a couples massage with a private hot tub and steam shower for our anniversary. The service was impeccable and the tranquil setting that the spa sits on is out of this world. I would recommend this spa for any occasion.

Overall, I was not impressed by the spa. I have been to many others and this was not as good as others in other countries, eg Thailand, Japan, Israel, Hungary. Food was lousy, as was waitress's attitude. I did like the free yoga class and instructor very much, however.

I live in Scottsdale so I've had many work occasions to go to The Boulders. I selected the spa for a girls weekend because of the book '1,000 places to see before you die.' It was nice but as I reflect back there wasn't anything memorable to separate it in my mind from when I wen to The Sanctuary, Four... More

My 3 friends and I go to a spa for both a great massage and the spa experience and we go often. The massages were fabulous, some of the best we ever had. However, the experience was not quite up to our expectations. The set up is a bit odd and confusing to navigate. One relaxation room only has 4... More

This is by far one of my favorite places to golf because of the views. I have had the privledge to play at some fantastic courses for work but this continues to be my favorite. Course is fun to play but the views of the boulders are breath taking.

Buy a lottery ticket or remortage the house and get yourself to the Boulders, it's amazing- and expensive. The spa pool is lovely, the setting and landscaping beautiful. Very helpful staff especially Jeff driving the carts. I had a casita the size of a small house and loved the log fire laid every day. I didn't have any additional treatments... More
