Casa de San Pedro

Casa de San Pedro An ideal naturalist hideaway on the San Pedro River, the territorial-style San Pedro inn is built around a courtyard and fountain. It is exquisitely decorated and furnished with hand-carved furniture from Mexico. The inn is committed to providing exceptional service while conserving energy and resources. Located on ten acres, and adjacent to the San Pedro River and Riparian National Conservation Area, Casa de San Pedro boasts a beautiful setting for its butterfly garden, landscaping that supports Southwest natives (including bat houses), and tankless hot water. Enjoy wonderful views of the surrounding mountains as you walk peacefully through each cycle of its seven-cycle labyrinth.

Hacienda del Sol

Hacienda del Sol Spanish Colonial in style, Hacienda del Sol was inspired by the Moorish architecture of the 18th and 19th centuries. Through the gated mission-style entrance, you are greeted by tranquil gardens, a backdrop of unspoiled desert landscape and a dramatic view of the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains. In 1999, restoration and renovation of all 30 rooms and suites was completed. No two rooms are alike, and each is adorned with eccentric surprises, from hand-forged iron and copper headboards to original artwork and custom-designed furniture. The Inn’s courtyard and porches offer a quiet place to relax. With large terraces for al fresco dining, its restaurant, “The Grill,” is one of Tucson’s best. Legendary patrons such as Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, John Wayne, and Howard Hughes enjoyed the comforts here. The magical setting has been, and remains, the very cornerstone of Hacienda del Sol.

Tubac Golf Resort & Spa

Tubac Golf Resort & Spa Tubac Golf Resort and Spa dates to 1789, when it was originally a cattle ranch on the first Spanish land grant in the Southwest. The 500-acre property spans the ages in every way. Its 200-year-old Otero House and ranch buildings were updated as part of the property’s recent $40 million renovation of haciendas. And a charming replica of a 17th-century mission-style wedding chapel adorns the property. During free time, you may enjoy the restaurants, shops and galleries. For golfers, nine new holes have been added to the existing 18, all serviced by an extensively appointed golf shop. The newest addition is a 3,000-square-foot hacienda-themed spa. Haciendas are the new generation of guest suites for the resort. Each 650-square-foot suite features a gas fireplace, patio with garden, flat-screen television, jet tub and separate sitting area. Each suite is also equipped with wireless high-speed Internet access, robes, irons and ironing boards, hairdryers, refrigerators and coffee makers.
