Unpretentious luxury captures the essence of a stunning Catalina Foothills setting.
The only Foothills resort that actually borders the Catalina Mountains, this resort is just five minutes by foot from trails leading into the untouched wilderness of Ventana Canyon. The mountains feel as if they’ve risen directly out of the swimming pool, casting their cool shadows over streams, waterfalls and natural pools surrounded by colorful bougainvillea and a desert landscaping of mesquite, ironwood, palo verde, and saguaro cactus. This resort offers almost everything a traveler could want---a full-service spa, two 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed desert golf courses, two swimming pools, eight tennis courts and numerous restaurants, including the Flying V-Bar, with its nighttime views of the city lights. Architecturally reminiscent of the celebrated Arizona Biltmore, this unpretentious lodge seems to be built from stones from the surrounding mountains, with a natural motif that continues with numerous large amethyst geodes scattered about the lobby. This is by far the most authentic and natural feeling of the Tucson foothill resorts.
