Good news on the tourism front (and for those in search of some pampering)… According to the Phoenix Business Journal, 10 resorts landed on Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s new 2012 list of the Top 100 resort spas in the U.S. mainland.

Check it out:

Two of those top-ranked Arizona resorts landed in the top ten of the magazine’s list — The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain located in Marana just outside of Tucson landed in third place. The Mii Amo resort, in the popular Northern Arizona tourist hub of Sedona, tied for seventh with the Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont.

The third Arizona pick on the list was the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa in Paradise Valley, which came in at No. 26.

Reader feedback put three resorts in Scottsdale and two others in Tuscon on the magazine’s list.

Scottsdale’s JW Marriott Camelback Inn landed No. 72 while the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess and Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix tied for No. 77 along with Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Florida. The Phoenician in Scottsdale tied with three other resorts outside Arizona for the No. 80 spot.

In Tucson, the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa ranked 30th on the list, while Miraval Resort & Spa came in at No. 73.

Arizona also capped off the magazine’s list with the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa at No. 100.

Condé Nast Traveler compiled this year’s spa rankings from its Readers’ Choice Survey, in which nearly 29,000 respondents rated spas nationwide based on their facilities, treatments and staff.

  1. That’s wonderful news. It’s no wonder several Arizona resorts made the list. I have only heard wonderful things about the resorts from people who have stayed there. Thanks for sharing this article!
