The main lodge is nestled at the foot of a pile of 12 million-year-old boulders, from which the resort takes its name.

Most people come of Arizona during the winter months to escape harsher climates. The Boulders Resort offers plenty of outdoor activities in a mild winter climate to enjoy the outdoors again. Tee up at one or both of the 18-hole Jay Moorish designed championship golf courses. Thanks to these challenging and enjoyable courses, the Boulders received the Platinum Medal Award as one of the best golf resorts as ranked by Golf Magazine in 2008. Ranked by TENNIS Magazine as one of the Top 50 Tennis Resorts in America, the Boulders Resort features first class service and facilities, with captivating scenery and 350 days of sun each year. Other outdoor activities on or near the resort include hot air balloon rides, desert photo tours, a city slicker cattle drive, an air tour of the Grand Canyon, rock climbing clinics, and horseback rides in the beauty of the desert southwest.

If you just want to take it easy and relax, there’s no better place than one of the four crystal-clear pools on the property. If you need a little help relaxing, The Golden Door Spa was rated one of the Top 10 spas in the World by Spa Finder.
