Loews Ventana Canyon Resort

From the moment you arrive at our luxury resort in Tucson, you are greeted with a magnificent view of the Catalina Mountains and indigenous saguaro cactus in every direction. With the distinct Sonoran desert smell filling the air around you, you get a sense that Loews Ventana Canyon is a luxury hotel unlike any other. Here, you’ll find amenities and services that make you feel like you’ve just checked into paradise. During your stay, we encourage you to enjoy the sunshine, the miles of hiking trails, the 80-foot waterfall, and all of our other relaxing, indulgent offerings.

At Loews Ventana Canyon, you can walk out the back doors and step into the natural beauty of the Sonoran desert. Inspired by nature and the surrounding saguaro cactus, architect John Hill constructed the resort to blend into the southwestern landscape. 

If you appreciate the serenity of the outdoors, you’ll love spending an afternoon exploring miles of hiking trails as far as the eye can see. Golf fan? You’ll want to play a round of golf on one of our two PGA, Tom Fazio-designed courses. Or perhaps a morning game of tennis is more your speed (open seasonally). Here, you can immerse yourself in the hotel’s history with a tour of the grounds. Afterward, enjoy a swim in our two heated pools or a trip to our award-winning Spa, then recline on our luxurious pool deck and take in the spectacular scenery all around you.


The Loews Ventana Canyon does still have room available for conference attendees, although discounted rooms are limited.  To make your reservations and receive the best available rate, please call the Loews Ventana Canyon directly at 1-800-234-5117 and mention you are with the National Association of Foreign-Trade Zones (NAFTZ) Spring Seminar and you will be offered the best available rate.
