Resort Report: Summer Kickstart

We are recapping the best stays of the week, beginning with a spa special at Camelback Inn. If you’re itching for a little summer R&R without abandoning your daily schedule before the weather heats up, soothe your sore muscles and relax in the confines of our Valley’s own Spa at Camelback Inn.

Conveniently set in one of the Valley’s most luxurious resorts at the foot of the massive Camelback Mountain, the uniquely Southwestern 32,000 sq. ft. award-winning spa offers 32 treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness center, heated outdoor lap pool, and breathtaking views of the nearby scenery. And because the best things in life come in pairs, the spa is pairing two refreshing 30-minute treatments designed to awaken the senses and cool you down this month.


The first treatment is an infused Papaya Mango Tango treatment, which first quenches the skin with an aloe wrap and then seals in the moisture with Papaya Mango oil, delivering essential antioxidants.

Next, a papaya enzyme peel works to brighten the face, followed by a cooling Mandarin Moisture masque, which combats the signs of premature aging from sun exposure.  The cooling off doesn’t end there – after the treatment, enjoy a refreshing spa sorbet from Sprouts (1 hour $99.)


Next, enjoy a decadent fare this summer at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson. the resort welcoming their chefs this summer for a special series of educational cooking experiences featuring unique ingredients from their desert.

Each class will include an interactive educational experience and a hands-on culinary experience with our chefs in their kitchen!

Beginning this month and on specified days through August, guests can indulge in a 2-3 hour class completely focused on the culinary arts that make the dining options at Loews Ventana Canyon so exquisite.


Here is a preview of what to expect each month:
