|About these ratings|
If hiking and golf aren't really your cup of tea, consider a day spent wrapped in seaweed or soaking in mud. Alongside its luscious green golf courses, Phoenix is also known for its outstanding day and resort spas. When winter strikes or everyday life becomes too overbearing, many weary travelers head to the Valley of the Sun for hot rock massages and salt scrubs.
When it comes to lying in the lap of luxury, many agree that there's no better place than the Golden Door Spa, located inside the Boulders Resort. In addition to spa services, you can also enjoy the resort's golf courses, hiking trails and yes, facials and mud wraps. As one of the most well-known spas in the Valley, this massive relaxation hotspot offers clients a long list of treatments worth bragging about, including the signature turquoise wrap. However, the prices may stress you out: Most individual treatments cost close to $150, while package deals range from around $300 to $700. The Boulders Resort and its Golden Door Spa is nestled in Carefree along the edge of Tonto National Forest. For a full list of spa treatments and prices, check out the hotel's website.
Other favorite pampering places include the Spa at Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, the Arizona Biltmore Spa, and Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, which travel writers say is worth visiting simply for a dip in the rooftop pool.
