Get away from it all at the Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort, an historic hilltop ranch set within lush gardens and enjoying striking mountain panoramas.
From 1920s girls’ finishing school to 1950s luxury bolthole for the stars, the Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort certainly boasts a colourful history!
Today, this luxury Arizona property offers sumptuous modern facilities yes, but with the same southwestern elegance that once attracted the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, making Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort the real deal.
And it’s easy to see why, as on top of the service, style, décor and design of this top Arizona bolthole, you also have those captivating desert and city views at every turn.
Set on a hill with the Santa Catalina foothills to one side and the city of Tucson to the other, Hacienda Del Sol really does boast a spectacular outlook from every direction, and they know how to take advantage of it. From the large windows and terraces of the award-winning restaurant to the infinity-edge pool and private patios, the views of the surrounding landscape are breath-taking. Gardens full of cacti and desert blooms only add to the beauty and tranquillity of the setting.
With both the rough wilderness of the Sonoran Desert and the sights of Tucson on the doorstep, there is so much to see and do here. Whether you want to kick back and relax, get active in the great outdoors or live it up in the city, it’s all possible at Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort.

Whatever the time of day, from breakfast as the first rays of sunshine hit the mountain tops through to dinner against the twinkling backdrop of Tucson City below, the extraordinary desert and city views from The Grill restaurant will never fail to impress. Nor will the contemporary American cuisine, which uses local Tucson produce including vegetables and herbs from the resort’s own garden, accompanied by a seemingly endless wine list! And as if the atmosphere wasn’t romantic enough, local musicians perform on the patio in the evenings from Tuesday through to Sunday.
Activities and Entertainment
There’s really no need to step beyond the stunning surroundings of Hacienda Del Sol once here. The first-rate restaurants, beautiful pools, sun-kissed patios and lush botanical gardens filled with fascinating pieces of artwork will entrance you – yet the views are a constant call to explore. Those lured by the mountain vistas can head out on horseback into the unknown; saddle up at the hacienda’s stables, which offer guided horse treks as well as group and private lessons. If you prefer to stay on your own two feet then choose from easy walks around the hacienda’s 34 acres or more challenging trails beyond, into the Santa Catalina foothills. Or, it might be the bright lights of Tucson that beckon. If so, upscale shopping malls, fine art galleries and fascinating museums abound, all just a short drive away, or take advantage of the hacienda’s bike rental that includes a map, rucksack, helmet and bottle of water.
Relax into your stay with a spa treatment, which can be enjoyed either in your own room or private patio. Swedish, hot stone and deep-tissue massages ease muscles while almost edible pear and apple or chocolate truffle body wraps nourish the skin. Take the time to really absorb the views from either one of the two sun-drenched pools. Both feature a jacuzzi while the Catalina pool near Terraza has an infinity edge and firepit, to take the chill off those desert evenings as you enjoy a spot of stargazing. When all the lazing around gets a little too much however, you can still continue to admire the views from the 24-hour gym and before heading home – don’t forget to take a peek inside the gift shop, selling all manner of locally made trinkets and treasures.
