The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain
Ritz-Carlton delivers signature luxury in a majestic Southwestern setting.
Surrounded by Saguaro cacti and the colorful sunsets of the high Sonoran Desert, this retreat offers luxury in the classic Ritz-Carlton style. The 253 guest rooms make artful use of stone and mesquite wood to create a Southwest ambience indoors. All come with 42-inch LCD TVs, personalized voicemail, iPod docks, complimentary overnight shoeshine and 400-thread-count Frette linens. A small "village" of freestanding casitas provides an additional level of privacy.
The hotel is home to a 17,000-square-foot spa, specializing in touch therapy and water cure treatments. CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar serves regional and international cuisine, while Cayton’s Burger Bistro provides casual, family-friendly dining. Additional choices include a sushi bar and Latin grill. A highlight for golf enthusiasts is the adjoining signature golf course featuring 27 Jack Nicklaus-designed holes. The kids' club emphasizes activities focused on local culture. Three pools and a water park cater to all ages. Beyond the grounds in the surrounding wilderness, ancient Hohokam desert carvings wait to be explored.
