Diamonds in the dunes? We'll prove that they exist with this week's Escape to the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort, a jewel in Arizona's Sonoran Desert, just outside of Scottsdale. For $104, you'll enjoy one night for two in a Deluxe Room, brilliantly appointed with Native American décor.

Your gem of a stay includes two steak and egg breakfasts at Fort McDowell Casino; $30 in Radisson Bucks for use at the on-site restaurant, bar, and spa; and a waived resort fee.

Once you arrive at this shimmering oasis, you'll never want to leave—and you won't have to. The property boasts a wealth of on-site amenities for a unique Southwestern getaway. Take a dip in the turquoise waters of the heated pool or treat yourself to a massage at the Amethyst Spa.

Golf lovers can tee off on one of the emerald greens at the resort's We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, home of two championship courses, a deluxe practice facility, and a full-service clubhouse.

Win precious treasure of your own at the adjacent Fort McDowell Casino, playing the slot machines, Keno, bingo, cards, and blackjack. The adventurous also can hit the dusty trails on the Yavapai Experience tour, or go kayaking on the Verde River beneath sapphire skies.

At dinnertime, the Native American cuisine at Ahnala Restaurant & Lounge restaurant surely will spice up your evening with dishes like strawberry-pistachio salad, or buffalo tenderloin served with lobster-chorizo hash.

The Escape is no mirage—it only sounds too good to be true. At this desert paradise, all that glitters really is gold.

  • "I like the resort best for its creative Native American styling and its great desert and mountain views. For families, there's a children's water-play area and horseback riding."

    -- Frommer's
