Over thirty years ago (1979), owners Mel and Enid Zukerman founded Canyon Ranch and developed their concept of a health resort dedicated to life enhancement. Set in the foothills of Tucson’s Santa Catalina Mountains in Arizona’s lush Sonoran Desert, it has long since become a world-renowned center for wellness. They have indeed created a unique haven for relaxation, recreation and optimal health.
Canyon Ranch is an amazing place that almost defies description. I first went there almost 10 years ago thinking I knew what to expect. Of course, I was aware of its reputation for being an award-winning spa. I had read that it was a luxurious, ultra-all-inclusive, popular with celebrities (including Oprah!). In fact, it has received the Best Destination Spa Award from Conde Nast Traveler magazine 11 times. But I was about to learn that there is a lot more to their immersion resort experience. I would come away delightfully surprized and completely overwhelmed and continue to go back for more.
