Perfect for golfing holidays in Arizona, ideal as a fun family getaway not far from the Sonora Desert, and full of adult-orientated experiences, cosy corners and exclusive moments for couples on a romantic USA trip; Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, Tucson, has something for everyone.
The property itself is relatively risk-free when it comes to décor and design, opting for clean lines, unoffensive artworks, colour schemes and overall architecture throughout – but take nothing away, as sometimes it’s good to know exactly what you’re getting. And that’s certainly the case here, as Loews Ventana Canyon Resort is still a fully modern affair, and supremely well-equipped one too.
Even the finest five-star Arizona resorts would struggle to compete with two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses onsite, for instance, though there’s more, as further outdoor sports come in the form of four floodlit tennis courts, multiple swimming pools, biking trails, a gym, yoga studio and various fitness classes on offer.
It’s certainly not all hard work however, as the daybeds and poolside cabanas at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort are primed for easy afternoons in the sun, being served by attentive staff, while you also can’t say no to the hotel’s spa and beauty salon, for the accompanying Catalina Mountain views alone.
There are then multiple kids clubs here at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, with activities and games for all ages plus plenty of day trips nearby to the museums and galleries of Tucson, Sonora Desert, Arizona National Parks and trails of the Sabino Canyon.
What’s more, having worked up an appetite either out and about or doing little more than luxuriating by the pool, you have a host of fine dining restaurants, live music bars and laidback al fresco eating areas to choose from at Loews Ventana Canyon, all before retiring to your balconied guestroom or spacious suite; top drawer.
All guestrooms and suites at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort are nicely modern, well-equipped, and while not breaking boundaries with their décor scheme, still feel like truly contemporary spaces, particularly the marble and glass-clad bathrooms that really look the part. You’ll find furnished patios or terraces throughout, that benefit from garden, golf course or mountain views as well as a rain shower and deep-soak tub within, coffee machines, a king-size bed, Wi-Fi and all necessary mod-cons from top-to-bottom.
The food at Flying V Bar & Grill is just as exciting as the restaurant’s name suggest. Here all-southern favourites come to town in the form of spiked scallops, T-bone steaks on the bone, tequila cocktails at the bar and yes, your very own tableside guacamole expert who’ll make, tailor and season it just for you, depending on what else is being ordered! When the weather’s right, be sure to enjoy the outdoor terrace overlooking the water, a lovely lunch spot.
It may seem indulgent, but you are on holiday after all – Bill’s Grill is the place for cold beers, gourmet burgers and southern fried wraps, just what everyone needs from a poolside bar.
Though there is a perfectly refined, changeable menu on offer at the Cascade Lounge and it does make for something a little different, in truth this is more a lounge bar environment in many ways, with its live music, long cocktail list and upbeat atmosphere.
Activities and Entertainment
In addition to the seemingly endless onsite activities, sports courts, clubs and games on offer while staying at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, the two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses and various kids clubs for all ages, plenty else can be found outside the resort too. You’re situated near to the Santa Cruz River, Sonoran Desert, Sabino Canyon and Catalina Mountains, for example, all of which are great for walking, biking or horse-riding tours. You could also enjoy the Arizona landscape in extra comfort with a 4x4 drive, though more tranquil moments come at the nearby Tucson Botanical Gardens, Museum of Art, Kartchner Caverns State Park or Mt. Lemmon Sky Centre Observatory, to name only a few local highlights.
The Loews Ventana Canyon Resort excels in every single department when it comes to onsite facilities and services, and thanks to the size of this luxury Arizona hotel – it always feels nicely spread out too. So, around the grounds you’ll find two swimming pools, Jacuzzis, expansive sun patios lined with loungers and private poolside waiter service; 4 floodlit tennis courts; a modern gym, yoga studio and fitness classes; a holistic spa with serenity pool, Jacuzzi and attached beauty salon with its own organic boutique; two championship golf courses; nature trails; telescopes for stargazing; babysitting and an action-packed kids club; a well-informed concierge team, dry-cleaning and more.
