Tango Diva : Travel Stories for Women, by Women

by Sheila Gaspers

The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa, a tranquil desert retreat nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains is the perfect home base for a relaxing and memorable escape. The resort’s location offers easy access to the downtown city center and to the area’s most magnificent desert and mountain scenic vista points.

Close to all the Action and Attractions…yet Far from Ordinary!

The Westin La Paloma’s setting, services and amenities are reason enough to make you never want to venture beyond the resort limits. This lush property features five pools, four spas, a signature golf course, a world-class Spa facility, ten tennis courts, an indoor racquetball court and a fitness center. And, should you considered the notion of “boredom” or need a bit of retail therapy, the staff will happily shuttle you to La Encantada, an upscale shopping complex nearby.

In terms of nourishment…no worries, The Westin La Paloma’s dining options are plentiful and palate pleasers. AZUL is a comfortably chic restaurant with a mediterranean-inspired menu. The tasty and tantalizing dishes are only rivaled by the sweeping pool and mountain views. And, those in search of fine dining will find Arizona’s very best just a few steps away. JANOS, is the Westin La Paloma’s shining star! This Four-Star, Four-Diamond award-winning restaurant is internationally renowned and a favorite celebrity haunt. Owner and Chef Janos Wilder, a James Beard Award recipient, adds his creative touch and a southwestern kick to french”nouvelle” classics to deliver mouth-watering masterpieces. Step next door to J BAR for hearty grilled meals served family-style. Mexican, Central American and Caribbean flavors dominate each dish. Chef Jason’s Chili Rajas, Frijoles de la Olla, Chili Cilantro Slaw, Spicy Salsas, and hand-stretched Flour Tortillas are among the house specialties that keep foodies coming back for more.

The time is right to recharge your batteries in the warm desert sun.

The Westin La Paloma’s team will show you how…even if only for a day or two.
