Westward Look Voted “Tucson’s Best” in Four Categories
Tucson, AZ (05/11/11) – Westward Look Resort is once again enjoying the limelight as one of Tucson’s premier vacation (and staycation) destinations. After two months of web voting, Arizona Foothills Magazine readers have named Westward Look Resort “Tucson’s Best” in four areas: Best Place to Stay in Tucson; Best Spa – The Sonoran Spa; Best Resort Pool; and Best Lobby Bar.
“We feel very honored that such a discerning audience has voted us Tucson’s Best in multiple categories,” said Craig Waterman, Westward Look Resort General Manager. “We consider ourselves the ‘soul of the Southwest,’ a warm and inviting blend of historic charm and modern luxury. It’s nice to know Arizona Foothills readers consider us a favorite Tucson place to stay and play.”
Located in the Tucson foothills at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Westward Look Resort’s 80-acre property features 244 suite- sized rooms, two restaurants serving up Southwest-inspired fare, stunning mountain and city views and the desert-influenced Sonoran Spa. The resort boasts three refreshing pools located throughout the property: the center pool right outside the lobby, an Olympic-sized pool near the Sonoran Spa, and the lower pool near the on-site Chef’s Garden. Three additional specialty gardens, horseback riding, eight tennis courts and hiking and biking trails add to the on-site outdoor recreational activities.
The Sonoran Spa, which won Best Spa, pampers visitors with aromatic herbs, cleansing muds and warm stones in its signature spa treatments. Sage, jojoba, aloe, and other regional plants used at the spa are grown in the on-site Wellness Garden. The spa offers distinctive seasonal specials monthly, and this summer the spa is once again offering a Spa Tapas menu. The Spa Tapas menu serves up small, intensive treatments – from a refresher manicure to a brow design – that can be paired with “main course” massages or facials. The result is a tranquil, refreshing, desert-inspired experience guests are sure to find befitting of Tucson’s “Best Spa” and “Best Place to Stay in Tucson.”
The casual Lookout Bar & Grille, which earned the “Best Lobby Bar,” serves up an easygoing atmosphere, stunning views and delicious drink and dining specials. Happy hour specials, offered Monday through Friday from 4 to 6pm, include $2 domestic bottles, $3 glasses of wine, $4 featured martinis and margaritas, and select 1?2-price appetizers. The Lookout’s newest weekend offering is Cowboy Chic Saturday Nights, featuring a house DJ and drink specials like $5 Jager Bombs and Around-the-Worlds, plus $1.50 Brown Bag Beer specials. Cowboy Chic Saturday Nights start at 9:45pm. The Lookout Bar & Grille also offers contemporary comfort food and nightly dining specials, detailed online at www.westwardlook.com/restaurant/lookout-bar-a-grill.
Arizona Foothills Magazine defines itself as showcasing the latest and greatest in Arizona luxury, featuring the finest resorts and travel destinations, plus shopping, beauty and dining venues. The “Tucson’s Best” web and magazine promotion gave readers two months to determine their favorites in more than 100 categories, like Best Place to Stay in Tucson, Best Annual Event, Most Glamorous Place to Party and Best Custom Home Builder. Participants voted online, and the results can be found at www.azfoothills.com.
The four Arizona Foothills Magazine accolades for Westward Look follow closely on the heels of two more awards designating the resort a top travel destination. Westward Look and GOLD, its fine dining establishment, were also recently named AAA Four Diamond Award® recipients for the third year in a row.
