A 126-year-old wellness resort hidden within saguaro-lined mountains an hour northwest of Phoenix has again been named the best hotel in Arizona.

Castle Hot Springs was named the No. 1 resort hotel in Arizona in Travel + Leisure’s 2022 World’s Best Awards.

This is the second consecutive year Castle Hot Springs received this honor. The top resorts were selected based on feedback from readers of Travel + Leisure, America’s largest travel media brand.

Castle Hot Springs was also recognized earlier this year in the magazine’s annual T+L 500 list, a ranking of the 500 best hotels worldwide.

The history of Castle Hot Springs

Guest can choose to gather or enjoy their privacy at Castle Hot Springs resort north of Phoenix.

First opened in 1896, Castle Hot Springs is an exclusive 1,100-acre wellness retreat that edges along the Bradshaw Mountains.

In its early days, it was a retreat for wealthy families like the Cabots, Vanderbilts, Wrigleys, Roosevelts and Astors. John F. Kennedy stayed there in the 1940s before he became president, during the time when the resort treated veterans wounded in World War II.
