The JW Marriott Tucson offers incredible on-site experiences for your well-being and relaxation:

Authentic Trail Adventures
From the Resort's main lobby, facing west into the mountains, Tucson Mountain Park awaits you. Each morning a complimentary professional guide is here to help you experience this hike. You can also partner with your own professional guide to facilitate a custom outing (fees apply). Please check with the concierge for times and availability.

Mitakuye Oyasin Morning Ritual – All My Relations
Gather each morning at 7:00 AM on the Salud Terrace to participate in a traditional Native American ceremony and unique Sonoran Desert experience. Begin each day by reflecting on the connection we all have with nature and each other, finding focus and creating lasting memories.

Legend of Arriba Abajo – Nightly Tequila Toast
Every evening at sunset we welcome you to gather on the Salud Terrace to watch the sunset and experience our nightly tradition – a complimentary Tequila toast. Our tequila toast brings resort guests together to partake in the "Legend of Arriba Abajo” and celebrate with old friends and new.

Hashani Spa
Indulge in treatments that combine the latest beauty and health technology with the ancient healing techniques and traditions inspired by the indigenous people of the region, using the healing properties of the revered Saguaro cactus, also known as Hashani. Appointments required. SHFM attendees receive 10% off spa services (packages not included).

Water & Golf Collection
Lazily drift along the Starr Canyon River, brave the Monsoon Falls Water Slide, lounge by the Reflection Pools or play in the Dancing Springs. Or, play a round on all three of our Tucson resort's nine-hole golf courses, designed by legendary Arnold Palmer.


The soul of the Sonoran Desert. The flavor of the Southwest.

Tucson means Wide Open Spaces and offers plenty of room to explore. In the heart of the Sonoran Desert, Tucson offers a modern perspective of the old west and some of the most unique flora and fauna in the world.
