Within its setting high in the cooling foothills of the Sonoran Desert, the resort boasts stirring views of saguaro cacti and impressive rock formations by day; vermillion sunsets and star-filled skies by night. Twenty five south-western style, taupe-hued casitas blend seamlessly with the surrounding desert, the generous guest quarters featuring oversized bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs and private terraces offering desert or mountain views. Three distinct dining experiences await – poolside Saguaro Blossom for lunchtime snacks, Proof for casual food classics and Talavera, the resort’s signature contemporary American restaurant. Outstanding recreational amenities include tennis courts, a lagoon-style pool and children’s pool, a full-service spa and fitness centre and a complimentary Kids For All Seasons Camp. The celebrated 36-hole golf complex has been described as the ‘best desert course ever built’.
