If you are looking for a health and wellbeing resort then look no further. This place is truly wonderful. It's ethos is one of integrative medicine - holistically looking at the whole person - physically, emotionally, spiritually and nutritionally.

Every lecture I attended and every class I participated in was first class. The level of expertise, kindness and support is extraordinary. You can fill every hour of every day if you want to - in fact it's tempting to over schedule and not take some time out to simply sit by the pool and relax.

The resort itself is in the Sonoran Desert so for me, coming from England, this extraordinary landscape was fascinating. The heat felt healing, never oppressive, and the wonderful storms that often lit up the afternoon sky were amazing. If you believe in healing energy from the environment then you will find it here.

The rooms are large and extremely comfortable. The food is delicious and plentiful with every calorie and gram of protein, fat and carbohydrate counted for you. It's all organic and so delicious - and best of all it's good for you!

I learned a great deal about health and fitness - attending lectures on everything from heart disease to improving sleep. I am really trying to use this information and keep up the good work I started now I'm home. If you want to read my blog of my stay go to maxinedorcas.com on Wordpress and you can find it.

I can't wait to return.

I just returned from a 4 day package at Canyon Ranch. The more I go (our family goes every year), the more I love the Ranch. We even looked into the membership, which makes sense if you go every year for a week.The resort and grounds are beautiful and serene, food delicious and healthy..breakfast burrito delicious and pizza for dinner. The outdoor restaurant Double U has added delicious new dishes to their menu and an espresso bar ! A wide variety of fitness activities are offered and the spa has a menu full of pampering treatments. Hot Stone Massage is a MUST ! And every year I go to a few lectures. This year Mel (the founder) talked about how he had the vision to build canyon ranch. I also attended lectures on heart disease and one on peak performance with medical doctors. Very informative. Overall, it is a 10 + !!! I like CR over Miravel, a lot more to chose from all around.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and similar. If I was solo I would ask to be near the spa, if in a group ge...

I can't say enough good things about CR in Tucson. The property is gorgeous, with attention to detail in design everywhere you look. Staff are attentive and friendly, great healthy gourmet food, incredible array of classes, services and outdoor experiences to choose from. Absolutely world class, and believe me, it can be life-changing. Wonderful weather, too.

Room Tip: Haven't been disappointed yet. Very quiet and peaceful everywhere.

I return here every year to recharge my batteries. It started about ten years ago to deal with some back trouble. This place seems to have an endless list of resources. They've treated my problem and given me tools to take back home and stay on track. This is the ultimate place for health, fun and relaxation. Lastly, the food is INCREDIBLE, and the most unbelievable thing about it is that it is all super healthy.

Canyon Ranch is a true life-changing experience. I've been to other "destination" resorts, but the staff here are somehow even able to overshadow the 5-star accommodations, the brilliant lectures, the nutritious and tasty food and a world-class spa. I would live here if I could afford it and send everyone I know here if I win the lottery.

Canyon Ranch Tucson is an amazing spa vacation. The rooms are spacious, elegant and peaceful. The staff is so attentive and professional. The morning walks are not to be missed- yes, you do have to get up at 7 am- however, you can sleep later in the day while poolside. The classes are exciting, different, challenging. The lectures are incredible- in one day I went to an Astrology class, a class on finance review class, a nutrition class for women over 40.
The rates are high-the experience is a five star sky reach. Treat yourself and you will be a happy camper.

Room Tip: The best rooms for me are closer to the spa and gym. Lots of CR veterans like the rooms located up t...

I went to canyon ranch for a ladies trip. It was my mother-in-laws friends' birthday. Our group consisted of 8 women, ages ranged from early 30's to 60. We spent 5 of the most spectacular days there. As a fitness trainer and an extremely regimented eater, I had concerns regarding the classes and food. Both blew me away. The variety of classes and activities kept my interest the entire time. We were able to find classes that we enjoyed as a group as well as classes I did on my own that were more intense. I even discovered a new passion for hiking, something i had never tried before. Now i'm hooked! There was a variety of food choices at every meal and I was able to custom order anything I wanted. The spa services were outstanding. My only regret is doing only 1 per day! The accommodations are also incredible. No matter where you stay it is easy to get around. The staff is more than friendly. They really embrace their jobs and provide a feeling of calmness and luxury. I can't wait to go back!
