8600 E. Rockcliff Rd., Tucson
COST: Over $250 per night
Perhaps the valley’s most famous resort, Canyon Ranch is representative of what the other top resorts offer. Here you can not only pamper yourself silly with spa treatments (an activity sure to lead to optimum, albeit temporary, good health), but then it’s off to appointments with a staff nutritionist, chiropractor, acupuncturist, and internist.
A personal trainer will work with you on keeping in shape long-term, while a meditation class will help you get in tune with your spirituality. After one of your three gourmet (but healthy) meals a day, you can attend lectures and classes on various topics in healthful living.
For an experience so meaningful, it’s not surprising that you’re going to have to spend accordingly. A minimum three-night stay at Canyon Ranch is going to set you back $2,600–5,020 per person depending on accommodations. That’s all-inclusive, however: For that price you get three gourmet meals a day, spa treatments galore, consultations with all the medical professionals on staff, and unlimited activities.
The high season at Canyon Ranch is September 23–June 7, after which, as it is with all Tucson ’s resorts, prices drop rather dramatically.
