“Program Advising (PA) contacts all guests upon booking their reservations by asking them their goals during their stay,” explains Kammerer. “Based on each guest’s desires, goals and needs, the PA will design a customized itinerary.”
What might be one of the most interesting aspects of the Canyon Ranch concept is its approach to dining. “Canyon Ranch has award winning cuisine featuring the cleanest, freshest and most wholesome foods emphasizing organic, local and sustainable ingredients,” says Kammerer. And with such flavorful selections, it’s hard to believe all dishes are less than 500 calories—yes, all the nutrition facts are conveniently listed right under each dish. “The menu at Canyon Ranch Grill includes seasonal specialties, including Peruvian ceviche, rosemary roasted black cod and grass-fed beef tenderloin.” This editor particularly enjoyed the lobster macaroni and cheese on the restaurant’s lunch menu.
Other dining options include The Carillon Cafe, offering a variety of salads and sandwiches, as well as organic beer, wines, coffees, teas and juices; and The Cabana, featuring light fare, fresh fruit smoothies and organic mixed drinks.
