This Arizona Resort Is Surrounded By Natural Beauty And It’s The Perfect Escape
by Katie Lawrence
One of the best parts about Arizona living is being surrounded by nature wherever we go. A prime example of this is the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, located in Tucson. Nestled at the base of the Catalina Mountains, this luxury hotel offers a perfect blend of outdoor activities and high-end modern amenities. From an on-site nature trail with an 80-foot waterfall to two resort-style pools overlooking the vast Sonoran Desert, this peaceful getaway makes the perfect staycation. You don’t always have to leave the city to escape the stress of your day-to-day.
Nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Catalina Mountains, the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort sits on 100 acres of Sonoran Desert landscape. The hotel is also a mere 20 minutes from the University of Arizona, making it convenient for travel throughout the city. Despite being within Tucson city limits, the resort is completely surrounded by and immersed in natural beauty. With the mountains towering in the background and Saguaros standing guard in all four directions, it's the ultimate weekend escape. An on-site koi pond invites you to transcend the chaos of everyday life as you listen to the rhythmic splashing of the fish swimming to and fro. The pond is accompanied by an 80-foot natural waterfall whose powerful roar washes away any racing thoughts in your mind. Guests can also enjoy the Window Walk Nature Trail, an easy, half-mile stroll that meanders around the property. Like something from a fairytale, the trail features babbling brooks, stone bridges, and even an enchanting butterfly garden. There are also 200 signs identifying the plants and wildlife you'll see along the way.
When you aren't exploring the grounds, pamper yourself with a dip in one of the resort's two swimming pools. One is open to all ages, while the lap pool is for adults only. Both offer unforgettable views of the surroundings.
After a full day of being out and about, crawling into bed for a good night's rest is the only thing that makes sense. With rooms and suites available, the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort is sure to become your home away from home. Luxury amenities include plush sheets and bath towels, gourmet coffee, a flat-screen TV, and a spacious sitting area that leads out to a private balcony. The rooms also boast oversized bathtubs for a spa-like experience that will leave you feeling fully rejuvenated at the end of your stay.
Four on-site restaurants offer everything from light bites to authentic Southwestern fare to fine steaks and seafood. Several of the restaurants have outdoor seating, so you can take in the gorgeous scenery while you eat.
