This is the first spa resort I have ever experienced so I have nothing to compare it to but my impressions of it were, for the most part, very positive. While Canyon Ranch offers the traditional spa amenities such as massage (in various forms), water "cures," beauty treatments of all kinds, etc. it also boasts a full range of activities ranging from the purely physical - exercise classes, organized hikes, bike rides, climbing wall, ropes course, swimming, tennis, wally ball, etc, etc. to arts and crafts, lectures, cooking lessons and so forth. There's an expansive gym with every conceivable machine, pilates studio, squash and racquet ball court, etc. Check out their website for a full listing.
The accommodations are spacious and quite luxurious, the grounds beautiful and well-maintained and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. There are two restaurants on the compound, one formal and one informal which serve very healthy food but NO alcohol of any kind. The food, while well-presented, sometimes lacks in flavor but is not in short supply. The food was the only thing that fell short of my expectations and there are no other options within Canyon Ranch. There are, however, other restaurants in Tucson and the surrounding area if you need a fix of more flavorful, less healthy cuisine but since the cost of your meals was included in our overall fee, it was hard to bypass eating there. The smoothies in the Double U Cafe are a treat, especially with added protein powder.
