CopperWynd Resort & Club
This small resort is located at the end of a quiet canyon road, its buildings set atop a ridge in the Sonoran Desert. Each of the 32 guest rooms is decorated in earth tones with custom-made furniture, a gas fireplace, and a private balcony with views of the surrounding desert and McDowell Mountains. The property also includes a spa, two outdoor heated pools, and a shuttle to the nearby SunRidge Canyon Golf Club, the resort's official golf partner. The on-site Alchemy Restaurant & Wine Bar serves regionally inspired American cuisine, such as the elk burger with blue cheese aioli.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
