Being named for a geographic entity is not unusual; in the case of The Boulders, its name comes from the giant, 12-million-year-old granite formations dotting the landscape. Set at 2,500 feet, in 1,300 acres of the Sonoran Desert north of Scottsdale, this expansive retreat effortlessly matches its s...

Physically and psychologically set apart from the cluster of five-star resorts around Scottsdale's Camelback Mountain, the Boulders, 25 minutes north, seems to organically grow out of the surrounding rocks. In fact, everything about this resort seems organic: The adobe buildings are the color of the...

Look closely at the 12-million-year-old rock outcroppings of the Sonoran desert outside Scottsdale, Arizona, and you will find a resort that seems to have grown out of the rocks themselves, with natural terrain and plant life virtually unaltered by the private hideaway. The Boulders offers many ways...

Seldom have nature and high tech come together so flawlessly. Camouflaged amidst jaw dropping 12 million year old rock configurations silhouetted against the Arizona desert sky, Boulders is a hippie camp gone super luxe. It's for those with a burning desire to commune with the desert and spirits of ...

Happier than happy - user review
If you can't be happy here, you're in for a long sad life. We've stayed at 5 star hotels all over the world as well as Motel 6's (when there wasn't a choice ..; ) The Boulders and their staff couldn't do enough for us. The grounds are beautiful, the wildlife abundant...This is NOT a place for a fami...

Great Location; Inconsistent Service - user review
This location is like none other...you feel like you're on a different planet. Go here to relax, enjoy the spa (which will become VERY costly) and experience a one of a kind location.

Lovely grounds, but rooms are outdated, with small old showers that had prominent old scum, coffee maker filthy, coffee and toiletries provided were cheap and low end, all in room glassware was dirty with lip marks etc, ice bucket dirty, otherwise nice place. Staff was very gracious about my concern...

The hotel's layout is one of seclusion and privacy. You are not coming and going out of a main lobby which makes you feel more like a resident than a guest, but pampered nonetheless. At the same time, the exclusiveness of this hotel makes you feel like a ...
