Hotel Information

A Luxury Arizona Hotel with a Spirit of Adventure

Time stands still at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, a scenic Tucson, Arizona resort that blends majestically into its Sonoran Desert and Tortolita Mountain setting. Surrounded by a lush Saguaro forest, the luxury mountain resort sits on land once inhabited by the indigenous Hohokam people, who honored its natural beauty with a spirit that still endures today. It is said that when the hotel’s foundation was ready to be poured, its entire footprint had to be relocated by a few feet so as to protect Saguaro cacti. Arizona hotel guests can hear the beauty in the ancient melodies of the flutist welcoming each evening’s sunset. They can sense it by immersing themselves in the spectacular mountain terrain – on a hike, a mountain bike, or on horseback, or simply by taking in a star-filled velvet sky alongside the warmth of a terrace fire pit. Guests can also enjoy a vast array of luxurious amenities, including guest rooms and suites that offer views of nearby mountain ranges, our Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course, four restaurants and a destination spa, plus the added convenience of the city of Tucson less than 30 minutes away. At The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, let us open your eyes to a luxury resort that will touch both your soul and adventurous spirit.
