A few weeks ago, we wandered to a place that makes us both feel most alive: the desert. During our time in Tucson, we had ourselves a peaceful getaway at the ‘Posada’ by The Joshua Tree House. The Posada is tucked away in the desert and is encompassed by the beauty of the Saguaro National Park. The five-suite inn was designed and built with intentionality by Sara and Rich Combs, best known for their stunning Joshua Tree House in California.
The Posada is designed in a way to allow guests to cultivate connection with one another, while allowing plenty of privacy and relaxation. We stayed in the beautiful Cholla room which had it’s own personal patio area overlooking a forest of Saguaro and Cholla cacti.
Each suite has access to the shared living spaces at the Posada, including the kitchen, pool, rooftop lounge area, yoga studio, fire pit, and living room that has a projector for shared movie nights.
The white-washed adobe architecture, natural wood beams, terra-cotta tile, Moroccan textiles… Let me just tell you, the entire place is a dream. The intentionality put into each of the different spaces around the Posada did not go unnoticed. The moment you walk into the Posada, each of your five senses are immediately tapped into and awakened. The smell of the natural incense burning, their New Moon Spotify Playlist that was carefully curated to capture the essence of the desert, their delicious homemade granola, the vibrant colors of Moroccan textiles and the bright desert sunshine dancing through each room.
One of my favorite parts of our stay was waking up to the rising sun stretching out across the desert. Once the sun peeked through the blinds in the morning, Louis and I jumped out of bed, made some coffee, and watched the sky explode with the most beautiful, vibrant colors.
I could sing praises of the Posada all day, but I definitely don’t want to forget to mention the amazing humans who keep it running. The staff are all so kind and really made sure to go the extra mile to make us guests feel comfortable and safe while following COVID guidelines.
Fellow wanderers- escape away to the Joshua Tree House and let your soul recharge in this incredible desert oasis. I promise, you won’t regret it!
