Marana, AZ (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, located on 850 acres in the high Sonoran Desert between Tucson and Phoenix, has introduced two new overnight packages, one of which pays homage to the area’s rich Native American heritage.
The golf, spa and adventure resort’s Discover With You package offers not only accommodations and a $100 resort spending credit, but also a guided cultural walk among some of the Southwest’s most remarkable archeological artifacts, providing close-up guest access to a walkable collection of ancient Native American petroglyphs. The historic Hohokam Indian petroglyphs adjoining the resort are a stunning array of red-rock art overlooking the property spa and dating back to an ancient people who once inhabited this lush section of Arizona desert. The Hohokam farmed and irrigated the high Sonoran Desert between 300 B.C. and 1500 A.D. and then seemingly vanished from the archeological record. The desert homeland of the lost Hohokam is now home to a majestic forest of towering Saguaro cactus, some of which are more than 200 years old and visible only in the picturesque canyons and foothills directly surrounding The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain.
For vacationers preferring to indulge at the resort’s 17,000 square foot destination spa, infinity pool and tanning island, the Rejuvenate You package at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain offers access to the spa’s award-winning treatment options and to a stunningly-visual Southwestern sense of place highlighted by the design utilization of desert gems and minerals including turquoise, copper and vibrantly-hued geodes. Like the resort itself, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Dove Mountain is inspired by the spirituality of the ancient Hohokam and by the balancing elements of air, fire, earth and water seen in the historic lifestyles of the Sonoran Desert.
