Nestled among 12-million-year-old boulders in the scenic desert foothills near Scottsdale, AZ, The Boulders Resort and Golden Door® Spa has been named America's Top Resort for 14 consecutive years.
Imagine awakening in an adobe casita that offers an enchanting desert view of towering saguaro cacti, ancient boulders, coyote, deer and jackrabbits. Sip your morning coffee in a pampered comfort and enjoy thoughtful touches such as overstuffed leather chairs, fine Native American art, hand-hewn wood beams and an aromatic wood-burning fireplace.
The Boulders is a nature lover’s dream and outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Just a few of the many activities to enjoy include tennis, swimming, hiking and horseback riding — as well as exceptional golfing on the 36-hole, Jay Morrish championship course. The resort also features its own festival market, with galleries, cafés and Native American art museum. Celebrate a spectacular Sonoran sunset with a romantic dinner at the elegant Latilla restaurant, or explore the desert nightlife with a special tour featuring night vision gear.
The Golden Door Spa at The Boulders brings to the Sonoran Desert the rejuvenating philosophy of America's premier destination spa - the original Golden Door in Escondido, California. Here, guests of this celebrated Five-Diamond hideaway find restoration, pampering and renewed energy in a new 33,000 square foot sanctuary. Wrapped around the 12 million-year-old boulders that give the resort its name, Golden Door Spa at The Boulders blends the Zen-like ambiance of the original Golden Door with the healing serenity of the desert where the water brought by early Hohokam tribes let the native people flourish.
