The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain Introduces Holiday Returns and Holiday Breaks Packages, With a Resort Credit to Help Guests Customize Their Next Escape

Fall/Winter Visitors to Experience New Arizona Resort Activities, Including Swim-Up Hot Cocoa Butler and Ritz-Carlton Food Truck Tailgate Parties

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain has unveiled two new Arizona vacation packages for November and December, with both offering a resort credit valid for property dining, spa treatments, shopping and recreational activities. Both resort packages are timed to take advantage of Tucson's temperate, sunny fall weather, and they are complemented by the introduction of several new dining and entertainment offerings at the 850-acre Arizona resort.

New for fall is the recent return of the luxury Tucson hotel's seasonal Sunday Market Brunch, Thursday mixology classes and weekend hand-crafted sushi in the lobby. Also added for the winter season, the resort's Swim-Up Hot Cocoa Butler will ply the waters of the lobby-adjacent Turquesa Pool, which will also be served by a new Tequila Cart, a mobile action station offering personalized chair-side cocktail service.

The new Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain Roadrunner Food Truck will be a further autumn sight at the property, serving gourmet bites as the truck parks alongside lobby patio tailgating parties during Sunday TV football viewings. The truck will also serve outdoor guests with ice cream truck and holiday-themed stops, especially as the resort comes alive in late November with twinkling lights, Arizona holiday décor and a life-size gingerbread teepee.

Further activity news from The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain includes the recent introduction of a new sake sommelier, in-room luxury camping ("glamping") for younger guests and the introduction of the Cayton's Restaurant Thursday "Astronomer for an Evening" experience, complete with stargazing cocktails and an astronomer-led tour of Tucson's famously starry night skies.
