The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain
Seamlessly woven into the Tortolita Mountain slopes just 30 minutes from Tucson, The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is a casually luxurious oasis set high in the Sonoran Desert. The 253 rooms, suites and casitas offer exceptional desert and mountain views, with interiors that take their cues from the scenery outside – think burnt orange hues and Native American patterns. The destination spa is wrapped by bouldered ravines, the inviting pool complex sits at the convergence of cactus-studded canyons, and guests have access to over 25 miles of breathtaking hiking trails. If that weren’t enough, there’s also a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course and no fewer than five restaurants, including CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar with its 2,800-bottle wine cellar.
