1 | Vibe Check

While walking through the sun-drenched property, its classic Tucson atmosphere is unmistakable. Along with a relaxing desert ambiance and beautiful Southwest-chic decor, the Omni Tucson National Resort offers everything you could ever want from an Arizona escape, including tennis courts, multiple golf courses, a sparkling pool and a relaxing spa. 


2 | Poolside Paradise

Take the edge off a warm day and lounge at Omni Tucson National Resort’s Sweetwater Pool. The infinity edge design is quite impressive, and it’s an ideal spot to hang out all day. The resort also offers cabana rentals, complete with TVs, overhead fans, privacy curtains and service from the Sweetwater Cabana Bar.

3 | Time to Eat

Feeling peckish? Omni Tucson National Resort offers four menus to help you feel energized and fueled up throughout the day. Start your morning with The Morning Table menu in Bob’s Steak and Chop House for a wholesome breakfast, then grab a spot at the pool and order a fruity cocktail from the Sweetwater Cabana Bar. For a pick-me-up after an afternoon of golf, we recommend Legends Bar & Grill, then wine and dine the night away with succulent fare and an elegant atmosphere at Bob’s Steak and Chop House.


4 | Tee Up

Grab your clubs and head out to the renowned Tucson Golf Courses for a day out on the green. Play like a pro on the Catalina Course, designed by Robert Van Hagge and Bruce Devlin, with eight lakes, 80 bunkers and over 30 PGA Tour events under its belt. Another option is the Tom Lehman-designed Sonoran Course with 69 bunkers and traditional fairways amongst the mountains. Omni Tucson National Resort offers golf instruction for first-timers or for players who want to improve their swing, and there’s also Kids Unlimited Golf for young putters who can’t get enough of the course!
