Fodor's Expert Review Boulders Resort & Spa

34631 N. Tom Darlington Dr., Carefree, Arizona, 85377, USA Fodor's Choice

One of the country's top resorts hides amid hill-size, 12-million-year-old granite boulders and the picturesque Sonoran Desert. Casitas snuggled against the rocks have exposed log-beam ceilings and curved, pueblo-style half walls. Each has a patio with a view, a wood-burning fireplace, and a spacious bathroom with deep soaking tub. The two golf courses are destinations on their own, and the on-site spa is one of the finest in the state.
