The Boulders Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton
The Boulders Resort has recently been ranked as the number one resort in Arizona, and the two 18-hole Jay Morrish-designed golf courses were added to Golf Digest’s Editors’ Choice list in 2019. Such recognition is a testament to the fantastic facilities, stellar services, and carefully curated atmosphere that has been created at the resort.
At the Boulders Resort, dramatic Spanish-influenced adobe-style architecture blends effortlessly with the Arizona desert outside. This is apparent throughout the resort which exudes the look and feel of an exclusive Southwest-style lodge. Native American colour schemes and patterns create a rustic look and feel inside. The lobby is rugged yet refined, with an inviting fireplace, vibrant cacti, and hand-hewn wood-beamed ceiling. Such accents can be found throughout the resort. All accommodation options have stone floors, wood-beamed ceilings, stucco fireplaces, Navajo print rugs, natural stone showers and a mix of cowhide, and leather furniture.
There is a range of accommodation types at this resort, from rooms (casitas) and suites and villas and haciendas. The Southwest-style Sonoran casitas boast spectacular views of the Boulders golf course, boulder pile, and desert landscape. Whilst the Boulders casitas as standalone units offer extra privacy which could be perfect for couples. One-, two- and three-bedroom Villas and Haciendas are ideal for company groups and families. These luxury holiday homes feature private patios with grills, Isokern fireplaces, laundry rooms, bathrooms for every bedroom, and fully equipped designer kitchens.
Dining at Boulders is an all-encompassing experience. Multiple restaurants and bars boast dramatic views from patios and floor-to-ceiling windows, along with a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes. From healthy mains and refreshing beverages to hearty bistro fare and Southwestern-inspired cuisine, there is something for everyone. Two of the standout restaurants at the resort are Palo Verde and the Spotted Donkey Cantina. Palo Verde restaurant offers panoramic Sonoran Desert views overlooking the 6th fairway. The dining experience here is simple, sophisticated and comforting, with a contemporary Southwestern-inspired menu. The Spotted Donkey Cantina, on the other hand, is quickly earning a reputation as the go-to for Mexican cuisine in North Scottsdale. Having this restaurant quite literally on your doorstep is definitely a treat.
This luxury resort is ideal for lovers of luxury in need of relaxation. The menu of services at the full-service spa is truly remarkable. Based on the idea of a Zen desert lifestyle, expect personalised service from technicians using high-quality natural ingredients and Ayurvedic principles. Choose from the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Ayurvedic massage, meditation tipi, and treatments inspired by desert botanicals and Native American traditions.
The highlight, however, is undoubtedly the world-class golf. Experience challenging play on the sun-splashed terrain of the Boulders Club, where you’ll test your handicap on two award-winning, Jay Morrish-designed courses that stretch across an enchanting desert landscape and are listed among the finest in the United States. Hone your skills by taking a lesson taught by expert PGA- and LPGA-certified instructors. Join a small group, or schedule a private one-on-one consultation. At Rich Vein Travel, we can book your golf package, organise equipment hire, and arrange lessons prior to your arrival.
For those keen to stay active in other ways, the Boulders Resort also features four swimming pools, eight tennis courts and a state-of-the-art fitness centre with whirlpool tubs and saunas. Yoga classes and Pilates classes are also offered. The resort is near Blackrock Mountain Trail, which offers 14.9 miles of hiking trails.
