The Gold Canyon Golf Resort t is located in the desert Arizona landscape in the mountains of Gold Canyon with amazing views of the Superstition Mountains. I’ll be honest I am an Arizona Native and I visited Gold Canyon for the first time, THIS YEAR. Typically when I think of going on an in town stay cation, I immediately think of Scottsdale. However, if youre looking for a resort that’s secluded and quiet, and basically a gem in the mountains, this is it!
The drive into the resort is even impressive. They have unique small roads up the mountain that lead to indidivutal casitasT. I love the personalized feel this resort has. There is no one big building, seven stories high. Each room is individualized and gives you a sense of space and seclusion. Almost a romantic feel.
The resort pool is centrally located within the resort and has a fantastic view of the golf course, the mountains and the resort. I could spend all day sitting by the pool.
However, if you get tired of being out in public, some of the rooms come with their own private outdoor spa.
The resort also has golf (and who doesn’t love golf). The resort fee includes unlimited access to range balls as well! Gold Canyon Golf Resort offers two 18-hole Championship golf courses, Dinosaur Mountain and Sidewinder. Dinosaur Mountain is rate one of the top course in Arizona.
The resort is an all in one stop. They have an on site Kokopelli Resturant that is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is centrally located within the resort. They have a view of the Superstition Mountains that is breath taking.
Highly recommended: Sunday Brunch (8am – 1 pm) with a Chef Attended Omelet Station

The resort sits right on the mountains, and as you walk outside your room, within a minute you can be to a hiking trailhead. The trails were amazing (some more challenging than others) and each one had some amazing views of the city and the resort. I would highly recommend trying out the hiking trails!! (Bring water!!)
