Hacienda Del Sol: A luxury and historic resort at the Catalina Foothills
Having as a background the scenic Catalina Foothills in Tucson, Arizona and only miles away from Tucson’s vibrant downtown scene, Hacienda Del Sol is not just a hotel but a guest ranch and resort. With a total of 59 guest rooms, two restaurants, heated swimming pools and hot tubs, botanical gardens and a business center, guests can have it all at their fingertips. After a relaxing breakfast, you can take a hiking tour around the hotel and learn about the Sonoran desert, then do a deep tissue massage at the spa and enjoy a late lunch at the Grill. During sunset, the adventurer will go for a horseback riding and the epicurean will lounge at the Terraza Garden Patio & Lounge with a glass of wine facing the breathtaking sunset. My Catalina guestroom was spacious with wood floors and handcrafted furniture, a work desk to catch up with work obligations and the most comfortable King bed I’ve ever experienced. The Spanish Colonial architectural style building was once a girls only school with Kellogg and Vanderbilt on the roaster; the original courtyard and the girl’s rooms have been preserved. But the most amazing of all are the following two: the wonderful staff that make your stay a breeze and the resort's stunning colors. All I want is to return back.
