I recently had the pleasure of staying at The Wigwam Resort, located near Phoenix Arizona. The Wigwam was exactly what I needed to escape the cold and wind in San Francisco. With a quick 2 hour flight, it’s the perfect getaway to a desert oasis. It is conveniently located near the Phoenix airport and is perfect for a family getaway or staycation.
I was lucky enough to visit during their 100-year anniversary of this long-standing Arizona Historic Landmark. My first impression of the resort was to say WOW. The resort is huge but manages to provide an intimate and charming feel. The Wigwam is a true gem.
With so many activities on the 40 acre property and happy faces in the resort, you won’t want to leave. Here are some of the highlight and favorite activities during my stay.
The Oasis pool
Perfect for a morning swim, sunbathing or taking some time to simply relax. During the summer months, it becomes an adult-only pool with a bar and DJ included. My room overlooked the Oasis pool and I loved having my morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the Oasis pool.
The Tower Pool
The tower pool is a family friendly pool with a kids fun zone and two waterslides. You can also book private cabanas, where you will have fruit, drinks and other delicious food options. We enjoyed the cabanas and feasted on piña coladas, fresh fruit, and margaritas. Christine was a fabulous cabana host and we could tell how much she was loved by the locals visiting the pool.
This was my favorite pool, it was small and intimate and perfect for a post or pre-massage swim and relaxation. It’s an adult only pool which I appreciated.
If you’re looking to feel relaxed and pampered make sure to book a treatment at the beautiful Spa at the Wigwam. I was treated to a fantastic facial which made my skin feel new again. I think I fell asleep in the VERY comfortable spa bed (I’ve been raving about this bed). When visiting the spa you get full use of the amenities, including, the steam room, relaxation room, the private clothing optional jacuzzi and the adult only pool. You can also enjoy lunch by the pool at the spa. I could spend all day here!
The golf course at The Wigwam is Arizona’s only 54 hole championship golf course. It has state of the art golf club rental. The course itself is beautiful, with a lot of trees for shade and glistening ponds. This golf course also offers FOOT GOLF.
I am not a golfer but I am so happy that I discovered foot gold at the Wigwam, it’s SO MUCH FUN. You can rent all the gear at the golf shop. I would go back just to play it.
As you may know I am a big foodie so naturally, I am very discerning when it comes to food. We dined at multiple restaurants within the Wigwam and everything I had was delicious. These are some of the dining options at the Wigwam.
Red’s Bar and Grill
Red’s is a casual family-friendly restaurant with a nice patio that overlooks the golf course. They have an ingenious kid’s room to keep the kids happy and entertained.
The wigwam bar is centrally located near the lobby and is where I had my coffee and delicious breakfast ( the avocado bake is a must-try). The European vibes on the patio are perfect for enjoying live music and enjoying a glass of wine.
Where to begin, this was my favorite restaurant and enjoyed the most delicious farm:table dinner here. Litchfield’s pays a tribute to the local farming community by sourcing only the best and freshest ingredients. It was a treat to see the chefs cook over an open fire. I wanted everything on the menu but ordered the seabass and lamb chops, which were the best lamb chops I’ve had. The drinks are also outstanding. This is the perfect place for a special occasion.
From the palm trees to the cacti gardens, if you are a nature lover you will fall in love with this place. I couldn’t go from one place to another at the Wigwam without stopping and smelling the roses (literally). The gardens are beautifully maintained and there are a lot see. I took an afternoon and did a self-guided tour of the property’s wonderful plant life.
I had an amazing getaway at the Wigwam and made many memories that I will cherish forever. If you want to visit during the Centennial Celebration click here to get some amazing discounts and packages.
