Resort Report: Omni Tucson National Resort

Lobby Omni Tucson 4

Built in the early 1970's, the Omni Tucson National Resort is a historic, iconic, and beautiful Tucson-area resort. The architecture is quaint and interesting, the rooms are spacious and classic, and the entire property is a lush & serene space. If you're looking for a quiet getaway with swaying palm trees, bountiful sun rays, a golf paradise, and great dining, think: Omni Tucson.

ROOMS

Choose an elegant guest room, suite, or oversized hacienda for your stay. The decor is simple and upscale with warm desert tones.

ON-SITE ACTIVITIES

Golf is the obvious occupation at Tucson Omni National Resort. As current host course for the Tucson Cologuard Classic and previous host of the PGA TOUR's Chrysler Classic and Southern Arizona Open, the Omni Tucson National Golf Course offers two different courses - ideal for amateurs or professionals. Private golf instruction is also available.

Swimming is another pasttime that can be enjoyed almost all year long due to Tucson's glorious sunny weather. Relax by one of two resort-style pools.

Tennis courts and a sand volleyball court are also on-property.

Be sure to talk with the concierge about booking other local activities - horseback riding, desert jeep rides, group cattle drives, hot air ballooning, shopping trips, more.

KID-FRIENDLY

Omni Tucson National Resort doesn't offer a ton for young children. No waterslides, splash pads, game rooms, or kids centers can be found.

That being said, the Omni Kids Crew does coo over the resort's youngest guests. Upon check-in, kids receive a backpack filled with fun items designed specifically for them. Kids also receive milk and cookies delivered to their guest room on the first night.

Property restaurants offer the Omni Kids Crew menu - with crayons and an Omni Kids Crew cup.

Backpack contents:

  • Activity book with stickers
  • Crayons
  • E-book
  • Binoculars
  • Small tabletop game
