At Home In Paradise
The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain
THE BUZZ Deep in Tucson’s cactus-speckled Sonoran Desert—the backdrop for famed wellness retreats like Miraval and Canyon Ranch—The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is adding an element of permanence to this glorious land of ephemeral escapism. Expanding beyond the current award-winning 250-room hotel, The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is an ambitious project poised to include a total of 126 two- to five-bedroom vacation homes, ranging from 1,668 square feet to 5,400 square feet, immersed in desert grandeur. Homeowners choose from eight flexible floor plans, while the desert-mod interiors subscribe to a handful of varying motifs like Contemporary Pueblo, with tiered stones and a level roof, or the clean-lined Modern Adobe, with artsy and edgy elements of oxidized metal. These stand-alone residences have full privileges to the amenities of the neighboring The Ritz-Carlton hotel, including a world-class 17,000-square-foot spa; tennis courts; a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course and adjacent 45,000-square-foot clubhouse complex (where the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship is held annually); and five delectable restaurants, including the locally famous Cayton’s Burger Bistro and fine-dining Core Kitchen & Wine Bar.
LOCATION, LOCATION The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain are located northwest of Tucson in the petite city of Marana, enveloped in southern Arizona’s ethereal world of pebble-stacked rocky promontories and cactus-sprouting mountains.
