The Best Spas in Arizona

Canyon Ranch Tucson offers complete health makeovers and life enhancement programs in a beautiful natural setting

As the home to some of the best spas in America, Arizona is the answer to the spa-lover's dream.  Whether you want to experience the beauty of the Sonora Desert at a destination spa, pamper yourself at a resort spa, or merely take a day for relaxation, Arizona has the place for you. Arizona's top spas offer more than the average massage or wrap; rather, they are holistic, healthy living centers, many of which are located on beautiful ranches away from the hustle and bustle of the city. As well as serving your physical needs, Arizona spas nurture your intellect and cultural sensibilities, such as with multi-million dollar art collections or by making grande pianos available for guests to use.  Even more impressive is the fact that many of these internationally acclaimed facilities find their homes conveniently located in the popular cities of Tucson, Phoenix and Scottsdale, making your time spent traveling that much more relaxing.
