Hotel Accommodations

All Retreat activities, with the exception of Friday afternoon’s activities, will be held at the Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa, which has extended discounted rates ($156 single/double occupancy and $166 for triple/quad occupancy plus tax & resort fee) until September 26, 2022 or once room block has filled. Reservations received after September 26, 2022, are subject to availability at the Resort’s prevailing rate.

To make a reservation, you can either do so online or call Westward Look Resort at (520) 297-1151, and be sure to let them know you are with the Sierra Tucson Annual Retreat. Westward Look has sold out in the past, so it is a good idea to reserve your room as soon as possible! When making reservations, ask about the cancellation policy so as not to be charged a night’s stay if you need to cancel.

A 10% discount is available on spa services at the Westward Look Sonoran Spa (520-917-2467). It is highly recommended that you book your spa services as soon as possible to ensure availability. Be sure to mention that you are with the Sierra Tucson Annual Retreat to receive the discounted rate.

Please note that there will NOT be shuttle/bus service between other hotels and Westward Look; you will need to provide your own transportation.
