Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, 7000 N. Resort Drive, Tucson, 520.299.2020
Located in the stunning Catalina Mountains, this luxe resort (rooms from $249 per night) just underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation that concluded early last year. The revamped Lakeside Spa boasts tranquil views and desert-inspired spa services, like the Aloe Vera and Blue Corn Skin Healer ($140). This 50-minute treatment begins with a polish made from a blend of blue corn—used by Native Americans to polish and purify skin—and soothing aloe vera. Desert Dew moisturizer and serum infuse the skin with indigenous plant extracts meant to restore and protect skin from damage by the elements.
