The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain

15000 N. Secret Springs Dr., Marana, Arizona, 85658, USA

The most elegant and exclusive of Tucson's golf and tennis resorts is the ever-posh Ritz-Carlton, set in the rolling hills of Marana, about 20 miles northwest of central Tucson. The hotel has modern Southwestern-style rooms and casitas with featherbeds and Jacuzzi tubs, a fabulous spa, and an indoor-outdoor restaurant, CORE, with spectacular desert views. Guests have privileges at Dove Mountain's two Jack Nicklaus–designed golf courses—site of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Tournament in February. The resort highlights the indigenous people of the region, with Native American art, a library filled with books on the area's cultural and natural history, and a sunset celebration each evening outdoors in which notes played by a Native American flutist float into the petroglyph-studded hillsides.
