Canyon Ranch Tucson
What it is
The legendary resort opened in 1979 and jump-started a health and fitness revolution, which led to athleisure and farm-to-table cuisine.
What it isn't
Ordinary in any way. Expect to be surprised by the miles-long list of things you can do, from on-trend fitness classes and Botox to guided soul journeys and cooking classes with top pros.
What we think
You won’t find any alcoholic drinks on the menus at Canyon Ranch—and you won’t miss it. The resort has perfected clean living, from its pamper-me rooms (note the pillow menu with 20 options) to the on-site, expert-lead wellness programs (want to develop a nutrition program for life that you’ll actually stick to? This is the spot to do it). We love that the brand’s Tucson location is set in the tranquil Santa Catalina Mountains, with an 80,000-square-foot spa complex, 12,000-square-foot aquatic center complete with a Watsu® pool (you’ve got to try Watsu!) and an L Pool with underwater HydroWorx treadmills. Plus, this is a no-hassle, all-inclusive getaway that provides all your meals—healthy cuisine you’ll want to whip up at home—and a service allowance each day toward irresistible spa treatments, sports lessons and wellness consultations. This may be the only divine vacation you’ll ever take where you return home lighter and more glowing than when you left.
You're here because
You always reach higher. You're a master of the spa, an aspiring triathlete, on a spiritual quest, putting your health first or just aiming to be the greatest you. Put yourself in the hands of the inspiring Canyon Ranch team, including elite athletes, trailblazing physicians and the best pamperers.
You thought this would be a spa retreat like any other, and you couldn’t have been more wrong. On the agenda today: a tarot card reading and a guided soul journey that sets you on a path you’ve been wondering about. When it comes time to hit the spa and get refreshed with a hydrating desert ritual massage and mud cocoon, you decide to call the front desk and extend your stay. What’s another week at the Ranch? At any price, it’s #WorthIt.
