In Tuscon, spa days offer what is arguably the perfect retreat from the often oppressive heat. Some of the area’s loveliest spas are located within Tucson hotels.
For example, at the award-winning Canyon Ranch, Tuscon guests head out of the Sonoran Desert and into the 80,000-square-foot complex for facials, shiatsu massage, and nail services. If you sometimes feel more like a cold-blooded desert dweller, though, many spas have the treatments to get your temperature rising. Saunas and steam rooms help those who can’t get enough of the heat sweat it out, while sun worshippers enjoy tanning beds.
