“Worth the Splurge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I recently spent a long weekend at Canyon Ranch with friends - celebrating turning 40 and 35 years of being friends. I must say that before we went I worried about the price - its a lot of $$ to not leave the continental US and to not be at a beach. It was worth every every penny. It is hard to put into words how relaxing, challenging, refreshing and beautiful the weekend was. We did workouts - we were here to sweat and all the physical activities were great. Challenging enough for 3 half-marathoners and tri-athletes looking to sweat, lounge by the pool, sweat again and hit the spa. The food is delicious. Be prepared for the no soda (but delicious organic coffee) and alcohol but truly you will be grateful for how refreshed you feel each morning. And, be prepared for quiet, nothing to do after dark (but the spa) which is amazing. As 3 very busy professionals with small kids the cell-phone free atmosphere was a great way to be forced to unplug, enjoy the moment and stay off work devices.

I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for an active, healthy weekend away to reconnect with friends, a spouse or just yourself.

I highly recommend anyone looking to reset their lifestyle, whether it be kicking bad habits, learning more about proper nutrition, learning more about what physical activities best suit their lives, how to cook healthy and eat better, needing to destress, want to learn more about your purpose in life or wanting to lose weight - this is a vacation that you can not afford not to take.

The food was amazing and nutritious.
The classes were fun!
The staff was incredibly gracious, kind and amenable.
The Tuscon grounds were gorgeous.
The hike and bike rides were breath taking.
The one-on-one appointments were productive, energizing and well worth it.
The massages were out of this world.

I would recommend coming for at least a week. I know some come for 4 days, but it's well worth the extra time and you'll thank yourself later because there is so much to do here. Also, consider joining the Life Enhancement Center (LEC) program. They typically run a week at a time, so just be sure to ask when booking what the theme is for the week.

Last week, I went to Canyon Ranch for a spa day and every detail was perfection. The massage was the best I have ever had. The body scrub was the best I have ever had. The dance class could not have been more fun - it was delightful. The lunch was satisfying, tasty, fun. The yoga class was inspiring. The spa facilities were also top notch with friendly attendants. This place is a gem.

We were quite impressed with the service, facilities, fitness classes and good at Canyon Ranch. We went as a couple as a chance to regroup from a very busy year. There are no shortage of activities... Our pool time was minimal... but even with busy scheduled we left energized and refreshed (if a bit sore). The food portions were good and we felt healthy at each meal. We would definitely recommend this to individuals and couples looking to get back in balance in mind, body and spirit.

I have been here 4 times now and each time is as great as the one before. The accommodations are wonderful - situated on beautifully manicured grounds. I love just sitting outside our place and listening to nature and taking in the desert air. The food at this place - A++++. All of it! I recommend expanding your culinary horizons here because everything they have to offer is very good. They cater to many dietary restrictions as well which is a major bonus for me. The spa services have been great; much better than your typical spa. Everybody's preferences are different so I won't go into telling you what I think you should get but I can tell you I've tried 3/4 of everything they offer and have loved them all with the exception of the 3rd time I got a Thai Massage it was with a different person, it was a different routine, and it just wasn't up to par for me. I gave constructive feedback when offered a survey and Canyon Ranch offered a gift certificate for the price of the service and offered the name of another practitioner with whom they thought I would better appreciate the service. Wow! (for the record, I am not one to complain about anything...only if it's exceptionally bad, and even then I might not say anything) Also, if you are into the Metaphysical/Spiritual services I highly recommend a tarot card reading and a Soul Journey. (my faves). The staff are very friendly, super accommodating, and seem to really love their jobs. (who wouldn't love working here?!!) I really love this place and dream of my next visit.
