In the midst of a vacation drought, it's easy to mistake a mirage for the real deal. Discover a true Sonoran Desert oasis with an Escape to Loews Ventana Canyon resort, a AAA Four Diamond Award-winner for 26 consecutive years, located on the outskirts of Tucson.
You and a fellow tumbleweed will blow into town for a one-night stay in a deluxe room, from November 16 to January 31 ($149). You'll receive parking and fitness center access at the resort, which was picked as one of the World's Best Hotels by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler in 2007.
Your deluxe room—complete with one king or two double beds and an extended sitting area—is decorated in desert tones and Southwestern-inspired fabrics. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony offer views of the serene desert.
A hike along the property's Window Walk Nature Trail will challenge your preconceived notions about arid locales. Wind through a half-mile of beautiful desert scenery before reaching a massive, 80-foot waterfall.
Despite the dry climate, the resort boasts two emerald green golf courses, both designed by Tom Fazio. Later, purchase two relaxing massages with your 50-percent discount at the acclaimed Lakeside Spa, named one of the Top 100 Resort Spas in the US by readers of Condé Nast Traveler.
Get a taste of delicious desert living with your $20 food-and-beverage credit at The Flying V Bar & Grill, where expert chefs prepare signature guacamole at your table. The restaurant also offers picturesque views of the valley from its balcony.
When you're thirsting for a luxury vacation, wet your whistle with an Escape to the Sonoran Desert before it runs dry.
