Phoenix’s 82-year-old Wigwam Golf Resort and Spa has just undergone a face-lift. A relic of the midcentury motor-inn days, the Litchfield Park property has long been a destination resort. But now under new management, a sparkling pool complex and an indoor-outdoor European-style plaza has been added, and the resort’s name has been simplified to just The Wigwam. In the main lodge, original historical features such as a circa-1918 fireplace add character galore, while the 331 guest casitas and suites capture the spirit of the Southwest, featuring traditional territorial adobe architecture and pottery made by local artisans. With the resort’s acres of lush gardens, 54 holes of golf and signature Red Door Spa, even honeymooners will be tempted to venture out. But don’t worry, the Wigwam hasn’t forgotten its roots. On weeknights, a resident Hopi tribe oral historian helps guests discover and explore the desert’s night sky and plant and animal life. From $189, (623) 935-3811, www.wigwamresort.com
