My husband and I recently spent a wonderful weekend at this resort. It is beautifully--and sensitively--situated in the desert about 30 minutes from Tucson. The rather simple exterior blends into the surroundings and fails to hint at the tasteful and luxurious interior. We were upgraded to a deluxe room, which was just lovely, with an easy chair and ottomon, table with chairs and a balcony overlooking the desert and pool. The bathroom was spacious, with one of the deepest bathtubs I have experienced outside of Japan. We appreciated being able to get coffee and a light breakfast from the "to go" cafe so we could sit on our balcony and watch the sun rise over the mountains, casting a beautiful light over the grounds. The common areas are very tastefully and comfortably furnished, with deep sofas and armchairs, and the small library area contains a nice collection of books about the Southwest and an exhibit of Native American artifacts. We especially enjoyed having a drink at sunset at the Ignite outdoor lounge. A word about the staff--outstanding. Everyone was helpful and friendly, without being intrusive. The concierge provided great advice (and a map/field guide and water) for hiking; and we appreciated the valet bringing us chilled bottled water for our hikes in Saguaro National Park, about 30 minutes away. Our only regret is that we didn't allocate a day of our vacation to relaxing at the Ritz and enjoying all of the many amenities offered to guests, from fitness classes and hikes to mountain biking and a world class spa. I can't wait to return to the Tucson area so I can spend some extended time at this resort.
