Discover a magical retreat at The Boulders, A Waldorf Astoria Resort
Named for the 12 million-year old granite formations that define the landscape, the resort is nestled on 1,300 acres in the Sonoran Desertfoothills of Carefree, Arizona – just north of Scottsdale.
Relax within one of the 160 spacious casitas, 55 villas or six haciendas, all overlooking the mature sun-streaked desert landscape or bordering the resort’s championship golf courses. And for the most discerning traveler, we suggest the exclusive Villa Retreat – two side-by-side estate homes set on private grounds within the property, perfect for corporate retreats or VIP Meetings.
While you're here, sample innovative cuisine prepared from the freshest local ingredients (many from the resort’s own organic garden), rejuvenate and relax at the Waldorf Astoria® Spa at The Boulders, or partake in adventure with many daily activities.
