JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa

I did a Staycation at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa and absolutely loved it!

This is a Getaway Beyond Imagination in Arizona and was only 15 minutes from my home. Yet, I felt “away from it all”. I was immediately immersed in the vibrant serenity of the Sonoran Desert, its awe-inspiring vistas, the resort’s bespoke service, state-of-the-art facilities and extraordinary amenities. This is truly a grand destination! Whether visiting for an unforgettable family vacation, a productivity-boosting business meeting, a romantic getaway or special event, or simply exceptional moments worth remembering.

Starting the weekend off right, I had dinner at one of their fabulous onsite restaurants, Tía Carmen which is not only delicious, but has the coolest vibe. Renowned chef, Angelo Sosa opened Tía Carmen, paying homage to his Aunt (Tía) Carmen which celebrates the local landscape, farmers and community of the Southwest reflecting a mix of tradition and modernity. Tia Carmen showcases flavors imbued from a wood-fired grill and American Indian and heirloom food products.

I LOVED the oysters and the presentation. Everything was SO good! Just see for yourself…

During dinner I kept noticing these fun topsy turvey saucers from my table, so….I thought I would give them (literally!) a spin, LOL

The next morning we had an amazing cabana by the pool and it definitely wasn’t a typical cabana.

It was a Veuve Clicquot Cabana! OH MY!

Not only was it stocked with Veuve Clicquot champagne, but also a fun Veuve Clicquot floaty, pillows, chocolate, seafood platter, fruit plate and more! We put it all to good use.

Suit (another bargain!) $13 for top & bottoms total

We slipped away from the cabana and enjoyed the lazy river in one of the other pools as well. So fun!
