Top 10 Phoenix Luxury Hotels and Resorts : The Boulders Resort
Our final Top 10 pick comes with another, equally-distinguished name. As part of the world-renowned Waldorf Astoria collection, The Boulders Resort had us expecting great things. And with its intriguing combination of untamed desert terrain and stylish luxury, this is one Phoenix resort that didn’t disappoint!
Adobe villas and luxury homes all but hidden, each tucked into ancient boulders and sprawled across 1,300 untouched acres of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert. Natural wood beams, overstuffed leather furnishings and Mexican tiles lend these Phoenix area vacation rentals just a hint of Southwestern flair, while The Boulders’ one- to three-bedroom Pueblo Villas – complete with full kitchens and Spanish-style fireplaces – offer luxury on par with the city’s most prized million-dollar homes. Select homes offer views of the spectacular desert landscape, while others overlook the resort’s own Jay Morrish-designed golf courses!
With its ultra-indulgent day spa packages, the Golden Door Spa promises to counteract desert dryness and leave your skin softer than the surrounding Sonoran Desert sands. The Ultimate Golden Door Spa Day package includes this Phoenix area’s spas most sought-after treatments, including an avocado citrus scrub and the Golden Door’s signature massage, facial, manicure and pedicure.
