TUCSON-The Lodge at Ventana Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains walks away as Conde Nast’s pick for the leading resort in North America. The resort’s sister property, the Boulders in Carefree, AZ, takes third place in the ranking.

“To be included in Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards is a profound honor,” Fred J. Kleisner, chairman and CEO of Dallas-based Wyndham International, says in a prepared statement. “To have the No. 1 and No. 3 North American resorts in our portfolio is truly exceptional.”

The 50-suite Lodge at Ventana Canyon boasts two championship Tom Fazio-designed courses. The resort is bordered by the Coronado National Forest, which includes a 600-acre nature preserve. The resort also offers tennis, hot-air ballooning, desert Jeep tours and biking.

The Boulders is situated on 1,300 acres in the Sonoran Desert, just north of Scottsdale. Last month, Wyndham opened a 33,000-sf Golden Door Spa, offering the same amenities as one at the hotelier’s Anatole in Dallas. The Boulders features dual Jay Morrish-designed championship golf courses as well as rock climbing and the same guest amenities as the Lodge at Ventana Canyon.
