What will you do next?

Arizona is bursting with natural wonders – and Phoenix is a desert city which might surprise you. From Wild West-themed districts and colourful urban street art to sublime spas, discover a capital of opportunities. Whether you want to explore the great outdoors, or shop at an array of stores, there is plenty of choice in Phoenix.

The capital of Arizona is a great place to start a classic road trip adventure, as you take on the Apache Trail; but there’s plenty to see and do before you cruise across country. Explore the arts scene downtown, soak up some culture at the unique Heard Museum and experience an action-packed baseball game at Chase Field. Grab your hiking shoes to trek the trails of Camelback Mountain and return to the city for spa relaxation. When you’re hungry, head to Heritage Square for tasty bites, or stop by a tantalising Mexican restaurant. It’s time to uncover Phoenix.

Spa serenity

The spas in Phoenix offer an oasis in the desert. When you retreat to sweet-scented treatment rooms, polished nail lounges, glistening pools, tranquil saunas and bubbling Jacuzzis – you’ll feel serenity flow through you. For a lavish experience, make your stay five-star, and savour every ounce of opulence in the spa at The Phoenician. Make the most of the rooftop pool sanctuary, with its private cabanas against a dazzling mountain-desert backdrop.


The great outdoors

The setting of Arizona’s capital is breathtaking, with red rock mountains and towering cacti sprinkled across the dry land; so it’s worth grabbing your hiking shoes. Begin by exploring the scenery in the heart of the city with a wander through Papago Park and the Desert Botanical Garden. When you’re ready to break a sweat, choose a trail that will take you up to the peak of the famous Camelback Mountain.
