We are so excited to announce we are expanding our beautiful oasis in the desert this year. Construction began in mid-February 2020 and is expected to be completed in early 2021.
Five years ago in 2015, we completed our first expansion project adding thirty-two new guestrooms, an infinity edge pool and a brand new event space. This year, we will be adding forty new rooms modeled after the Catalina Rooms added in 2015. The new Rincon Ridge Rooms will include fifteen rooms with the luxurious and private outdoor showers guests have come to associate with the signature Catalina Rooms.
“We are optimistic about the growing exposure of Tucson as a world class destination for travel and are excited to be expanding our boutique hotel in order to service the growth we’ve seen over the last few years.” Tom Firth, Managing Partner, said. “Our thirty-two room expansion in 2015 was well-received by our guests and we’re building the additional forty Rincon Ridge Rooms to be very similar in style and comfort.”
The Catalina Rooms added in 2015 feature mountain views, hand-crafted furniture and some have private, outdoor showers
Like other new and updated guestrooms at the resort, we will take great care to weave in elements of the resort’s unique history throughout the new guestrooms and other areas. The history of Hacienda Del Sol is so important to us and we take great pride in preserving it.
“We see the expansion as a great opportunity to expand the ways we can tell Hacienda Del Sol’s unique story.” Tom Firth, Managing Partner, said.
In addition to the elegant new guestrooms, we will also be adding a brand-new pool area with a forty-foot lap pool, an infinity edge wading pool, spa and a large sun deck. The new Rincon Pool area will also feature two fire pits, views of the Santa Catalina and Rincon Mountains and areas for entertainment.
The area will also feature a 420 square-foot fitness facility with large roll up doors to take advantage of Tucson’s months of mild temperatures and unforgettable mountain views. The new fitness facility will feature all the equipment guests will need throughout their stay; elliptical, treadmill, bicycle, stepmill, rowing machine and free weights.

“We’re proud to be using all local contractors and suppliers for this exciting project.” Tom Firth, who will be overseeing the project, said.
Some of the local contractors working on the expansion include:
- Chestnut Construction
- CDG Architects
- Great Western Bank
- MAS Real Estate Development
- Rene Tinsley Associates
- Martin Rock Works
- Borderland Construction
- design planning & consultants
- VVC Design
- Cimarron Circle Construction
The expansion will also open up more space for displaying local art and sculpture allowing us to continue passionately supporting artists throughout the community. We currently have over 100 unique pieces of artwork throughout the resort with the intention of gathering more pieces for guests to enjoy.
Artwork is sprinkled throughout the entire Hacienda Del Sol grounds
The expansion project will be taking place on the southeastern area of the resort. Don't worry, we will still be hosting our signature events throughout the year as well. Stop by and see the progress for yourself or stay in one of our Catalina Rooms and take a dip in our infinity edge pool for a taste of what’s to come in 2021.
See you soon.
