“Hooray for Canyon Ranch!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

What an amazing and transforming experience!

Canyon Ranch provides the ideal facility to allow its guests to experience a new and healthy lifestyle. The classes and workshops, spa treatments, exercise classes, food and personal relationships you make during your visit are inspirational and motivational. Everyone can find the self improvement they want at Canyon Ranch. Even the most fit people or the least fit people will find activities to meet their needs.

I loved it and so will you.

Info for the obese:
The locker rooms have larger towels and 5XL robes.
When they said a level 3 is advance, do not get discouraged. They only mean that you can make modifications without assistance.
Order as much as you want! No guilt allowed!
Good:
The classes are awesome. There is 1 'teacher' and 1 'helper' (except in some of the water classes I went to). If you needed help, they were there.
The exercise physiology department was great. I did the target heart rate appointment and really felt like they cared and wanted to help me.
The locker rooms were great. The only problem was that there was no wifi in the "quiet room" and the nude sunbathing was closed.
Bad:
The food was just not good. One morning the pancakes were even raw!
The food was foofoo, ie the chicken sausage was filled of spices to make it test better with less fat. Heart burn city.
Low fat/high carb diet focused. No steak here.
They just have sugary drinks (juice), water and iced tea. Don’t expect diet pop.
They have butter, ketchup and salt but you have to ask!
Mosquitos! Eaten alive! Bring your bug spray.

Room Tip: in the 100s!

We appreciate your candid review. Our staff pride themselves on personalized attention and providing a vacation that can change your life. I am disappointed to hear that our culinary offerings did not meet your expectation. Our renowned chefs work with our highly qualified on-staff nutritionists to create indulgently healthy cuisine featuring carb-rich vegetables, fruits, legumes and moderate portions of whole grains and lean meats. I invite you to visit our website for a sampling of our recipes. Thank you for including some photographs taken during your stay.
We hope you consider a return visit very soon.

This was my first experience at a health retreat, and it was fantastic. Canyon Ranch has everything you could possibly want, including the freedom to do as much or as little as you want.

I had the idea that a health spa was intensely focused on making sure visitors only ate or did things that were strictly healthy, and while everything about Canyon Ranch is about health and well being, you are free to choose what that means for you. The pace may involve heavy gym sessions, hikes, biking adventures, and deep tissue massages. Or, it might be a stretching class, yoga, craniosacral therapy, and a full body scrub (which was amazing...!).

There are so many places you can go to eat, swim, and just 'be'. Canyon Ranch is all about you, the guest, and each staff member is incredibly friendly, helpful, and loves working there.

The food is something else altogether - beautiful, clean food, and so much of it! Everything is portion controlled and you get all the nutritional information, but if you really want 2 desserts, then you can have them!

This place caters for everyone, and the location is perfect - serene and relaxing.

I live in Australia, and would still like to make this part of my annual self-care routine.

Want a guilt-free vacation? With healthy food (whole food) and portion control sizes you have more energy than if you ate junk food. Want a burger and fries? - you get a grass fed burger and frites at the Double U Cafe. There's also a buffet at the Pavillion and 3 course dining at the main lodge. You're not hungry and it's included in the price.
Want a Spa but your husband wants golf/hiking/mountain bike riding - you can have it all here! Plus tennis courts and a full aquatic centre.
Did I mention the treadmills in the L Pool for those in your family who need exercise without stress on their joints?
And if you want a medical slant to your program they have those options for a fee as well.
Definitely the best value for your dollars. I was there when they were doing renos on their main dining lodge and never went hungry.
You need to try their patented Canyon Ranch Sports Drink for after the work out - refreshing!

Room Tip: Get in the 100s and you're closer to the Spa and main lodge.

Our guests love the abundant and diverse dining choices. A burger and frites by the pool outdoors is a great reward to a fitness filled morning of hikes and classes. The facilities team is always hard at work improving our many venues on property. They work in a way that makes the progress unobtrusive to our relaxing stress free environment but leaving us excited to see their next wonderful creation. I want to thank you for adding your beautiful photos to your review. The shot of the mountains and the summer monsoon rainbow is my favorite. We hope to see you back again very soon.

I have just returned from my 5th visit to Canyon Ranch. My annual visits are definitely one of the highlights of the year. Canyon Ranch is truly where one can come to rejuvenate, re-energize and relax. The combition of the vast array of daily classes and activities which address physical, mental, spiritual, creative aspects of life is fantastic. The beautiful setting of the Tucson property and the luxurious accomodations are a real treat. Canyon Ranch has also really perfected the art of making its guests feel comfortable and the attention to detail (I love the free laundry facilities complete with free detergent) is amazing. Above all, the staff at Canyon Ranch are what really make the experience especial. Each is a highly skilled professional in their area of expertise and all have a wonderful attitude. I love my annual treat to myself.

This is the best thing I do for myself every year, and after 5 years of going to Canyon Ranch, it has helped me live each day to it's fullest. Great exercise options for all fitness levels, amazing spa services to meet your specific needs, food options are endless (the organic ingredients and cooking demos reignite my inner chef each year), the staff absolutely are there to make your stay everything it can be. They have thought of everything and when I arrive each year I know I will be leaving with a renewed soul and purpose - ready to face the year ahead.

I just completed my sixth visit to Canyon Ranch-Tuscon and my objectives have been different each year. They've all been met and I always leave relunctantly and look forward to coming back the next year. It never gets boring because the Ranch does a great job of ensuring variety in the food, the lectures offered and the exercise sessions. Can't wait 'til 2013!
