U.S. News Review

Infusing the Moroccan desert with the Sonoran, the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia offers luxury befitting of any continent. Nestled in the heart of Paradise Valley, this new member of the Omni hotels family resides at the base of the scenic Camelback Mountain. A stay here is certainly a break from the daily grind — the property is a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of Phoenix and Scottsdale. However, many travelers say they had no problem with staying on-site; the resort boasts a wealth of activities, from yoga classes to happy hours to guided hikes. When you need to unwind, soak up the rays by one of the resort's three pools or book a treatment at the Joya Spa. For many visitors, the highlight of their accommodations was the private patio or balcony — If you can, request a room overlooking the mountain for the best views. And though you may be far from the culinary hot spots of downtown Phoenix and Old Town Scottsdale, you're sure to enjoy the contemporary Italian fare served at the resort's AAA Four Diamond restaurant, Prado.

Critic Reviews


“This luxury resort brings a touch of the Mediterranean to Paradise Valley with its exquisite dark furnishings and light stone work, its impeccable Joya Spa, its pool pavilion, and a Spanish-inspired wedding chapel.”


“Celebs such as President Obama and Toby Keith have stayed at the Montelucia, and it’s easy to see why: The grounds are lovely, the location is secluded, the 293 rooms feature sophisticated decor, and the Joya Spa, Prado Restaurant, and two heated pools are all top-notch”

Travel + Leisure

“With its graceful plazas and arcaded walkways, this 35-acre retreat located at the foot of Camelback Mountain so resembles an Andalusian pueblo blanco that you’ll forget you’re in Arizona.”
