Loews Ventana Canyon Resort $$$
7000 N. Resort Dr., Tucson
COST: Over $250 per night
One of the best things about the Loews Ventana resort is its view—anywhere you stand on the grounds you get a long, clear look beyond the sweeping golf course off to the valley below. With a fabulous restaurant, a top-notch spa, tennis courts, hiking trails, and one of the most scenic golf courses in the Southwest, it’s no wonder this world-renowned hotel and spa ($345–495 d depending on the season) was rated number 31 of the top 100 golf resorts in the nation by Condé Nast Traveler.
The resort also has a popular star-gazing program and a desert setting you won’t soon forget.
