Boulders Resort and Spa is the perfect place to recoup, rejuvenate

No matter the season or reason, the Boulders Resort and Spa offers a sweet retreat to recoup, rejuvenate, and explore. And I mean, there is plenty of space to investigate! Spread across 1,300 acres of the Sonoran Desert foothills, Boulders’ 33,000-square-foot domain invites golfers, staycationers, vacationers and day-trippers to two 18-hole championship golf courses, three pools, and three restaurants (as well as a spa cafe and lounge). Then there’s the spa — which we’ll circle back to shortly. Plus, you get to enjoy all this getaway has to offer amidst a natural backdrop of age-old boulders and hidden treasures just about everywhere you look. 

In addition to the many activities and beauty Boulders’ embodies, it’s also nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet simultaneously manages to be conveniently placed near major transportation hubs. The property is a mere 40 minutes north of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and 20 minutes from the Deer Valley and Scottsdale airports. It’s both easily accessible while still feeling welcomingly off-the-grid once you’re there.

And, it’s not simply the oasis-like feel or even the main features that guests look forward to enjoying at the Boulders. It’s the nuances of the property that accentuate the feeling of autonomy, relaxation and escape from the “outside world.” For example, there’s a wonderfully serene and carved-out private labyrinth designated for contemplative quiet time and meditation. Nearby, an authentic Tipi and organic garden, and reflection pond beckon more peace and serenity. 

Even simply walking the expansive grounds invites calmness, with plenty of pathways to explore—or guided desert golf cart tours to admire the native flora and fauna. The resort also has several packages available through Black Mountain Adventures including boulder climbing, desert mountain biking and guided hiking options.

After a day full of exploring, golfing, adventuring or relaxing by the pool, guests can further entreat themselves with a host of spa experiences. From massage and ayurvedic treatments to organic skincare and body enhancement services, there is no shortage of pampering opportunities. Travelers in need of rehydration can revel in the results of a replenishing “Hydrafacial,’ “a dramatic resurfacing treatment includes a Vortex-infusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid.” 

Whether you’re considering an overnight, week’s vacation or day trip to Boulders, be sure to check out their calendar of special events. Coming soon in March, the property is hosting:
