People often think of hotels and resorts as something for vacationers, but in Arizona, luxury resorts are part of the fabric of our local culture.
The Valley of the Sun is a tourist mecca, so the sheer number of resorts is heady, and the area has the highest per capita number of resort spas in the country. Phoenicians flock to our resorts because we know that some of the best wellness, culinary and entertainment are found within their walls. During the 110 plus degrees of summer, you’re sure to find locals splashing alongside you in the pool taking advantage of great rates. Staycations are a staple of our summer fun.
I’ve lived in the area for two decades and have had the chance to stay and play at every top resort in town. These are my standouts.
