    Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa
    Paradise Valley, AZ

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2037 reviewsTripAdvisor (2037)

    Its name describes this resort perfectly: Sanctuary. And its location, lodged on the side of Camelback Mountain, is rife with opportunities for both rejuvenation and physical activity. No wonder this hotel has seen its fare share of Hollywood heavyweights passing through its doors. Guest rooms are bright and beautiful, with exposed, whitewashed brick walls, deep soaking tubs and panoramic views. But for most travelers, Sanctuary's highlights are located outside the rooms. Guests lounge in (or by) the infinity pool and watch their worries drop off the edge of the world. And for an extra dose of pampering, travelers head straight to the resort spa, which boasts a bevy of Asian-inspired treatments. Visitors can also sip a variety of cocktails made from premium liquor and local ingredients at Jade Bar before enjoying a meal at Elements, the hotel's restaurant run by chef Beau MacMillan. And although Sanctuary does charge a $30 resort fee per night (to cover parking and internet access, among other amenities) on top of the general room rate, many guests weren't fazed by the extra cost.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain

    Hugged by the hills of Marana, Arizona – 27 miles northwest of downtown Tucson – this Ritz opts for trendy over tradition, with contemporary art and sleek furnishings dominating the decor. And though The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain might not deliver authentic hacienda living, recent guests don't seem to mind the lack of traditional Southwestern style. (Besides, if you're craving a true taste of the region, you can simply make dinner reservations at CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar.) The spa and pool area make a great setting for some R&R, while golfers give high praise to the 27-hole, Jack Nicklaus-designed course (guests gain access to these amenities after paying a daily resort fee of $50). Travelers also appreciated the low-key elegance of the guest rooms, where plush fabrics feel homey while high-end features (like deep-soaking tubs and private balconies) feel deluxe. Yet despite all of its positive aspects, guests say it's the staff's friendliness that truly makes their stays memorable. Marriott Bonvoy members can also use and earn points by staying here.

    Situated at the base of Camelback Mountain, this offshoot of The Phoenician, A Luxury Collection Resort, Scottsdale, offers spectacular views at every turn. Recent guests say they arrived expecting a high caliber of service and that the exceptional staff delivered. The Canyon Suites all feature beds with Frette Italian linens, private terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows that flaunt views of the desert scene or golf course. Speaking of the golf greens, visitors say the 18-hole championship golf course is not to be missed. In addition to a golf course, there are a plethora of other on-site facilities, including tennis courts, a full-service spa and an infinity pool with Camelback vistas (a particular guest favorite). When you need to refuel after a full day of activity, you'll have your choice between eight fine and casual dining options as well as an ice cream parlor. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    The Phoenician, A Luxury Collection Resort, Scottsdale has long set the standard for luxury in the Valley of the Sun. It's not hard to see why. For one thing, the setting is unbelievable – when reserving your room, ask for accommodations with views of Camelback Mountain. Even if those are all booked, recent visitors say that you won't be too disappointed, as all rooms feature elegant furnishings, Italian marble bathrooms and private balconies or patios. And if you're looking for a little more space, opt to stay in one of the elegant Canyon Suites. This 250-acre Luxury Collection property also boasts an 18-hole championship golf course, a tennis complex, a full-service spa and plenty of restaurants, lounges and snack bars. And did we mention the massive art collection on-site? Should you think that all of this is out of your price range (resort and parking fees are expensive as well), you can cut costs by using the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program.

    Although it's about 9 miles northwest of central Sedona, the Enchantment Resort is a hit with recent guests thanks to the peace and quiet afforded by the property's secluded location. The Enchantment's accommodations combine traditional Southwestern decor with contemporary amenities like flat-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access. Some even include fireplaces, kitchens and outdoor dining areas. Recent guests appreciated the resort's attention to detail and outstanding customer service, praising the extra efforts made  like having cold orange juice delivered every morning  to ensure a comfortable stay. When you're not hiking through nearby Boynton Canyon or exploring the surrounding Vortexes, take advantage of the resort's pools, tennis courts and golf course. For a complete spa getaway (and some serious relaxation), the adjoining Mii amo Spa offers several rooms of its own, as well as a long list of treatments. And when you need to refuel, the resort features five on-site eateries as well as a wine bar. Plus, members of the iPrefer rewards program can earn or redeem points for choosing to stay here.

    Travelers willingly travel to the sprawling desert landscape of Pinnacle Peak (in the far reaches of North Scottsdale) for the signature service and luxurious accommodations that only a Four Seasons can provide, not to mention the property's two championship golf courses. It's exactly the type of seclusion that previous guests had been seeking. The accommodations garner high praise for their comfortable furnishings and high-class amenities, which include a private patio with an adobe-style gas fireplace. And though the resort feels remote, travelers say that you'll find plenty to do here: Spend your days lounging by the pool, working up a sweat on the tennis courts or being pampered at the spa. Meanwhile, recent visitors describe the fare at the four on-site restaurants as delicious.

    The Waste Management Phoenix Open, a popular PGA tournament, puts the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in the spotlight once a year and takes over the resort's two golf courses. Yet guests believe this palatial resort deserves the fanfare year-round. They rave about the spacious guest rooms, which are adorned in earthy hues and equipped with soaking bath tubs, wet bars and private patios or balconies overlooking the desert landscape. This expansive property in Scottsdale also boasts six pools, some of which include waterslides, along with a full-service spa. Meanwhile, the Fairmont's multiple restaurants cater to a wide variety of tastes. Carnivores can get their fix at BOURBON STEAK, while spicier palates can indulge in some of Arizona's best Mexican fare at La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval.

    Free WiFi

    The Royal Palms Resort and Spa has drawn many a VIP – including President George W. Bush back in 2004 – because of its intimate, luxurious atmosphere. Guest rooms here look as if they belong in an elite Southwestern estate, boasting vibrant, jewel-toned decor and deep-soaking tubs. Depending on when you visit, the property's pool area can feel a bit crowded (and snagging a lounge chair can be difficult), but it provides much-needed respite from the blazing Arizona heat. The open-air Alvadora Spa is also nice, offering wellness classes as well as a long list of treatments. Meanwhile, the outdoor dining area at T. Cook's provides a nice ambiance for the restaurant's bold flavors. Located in the Camelback Corridor, this resort is just a short drive from Old Town Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix. Royal Palms Resort and Spa is also a member of the Hyatt family, so Hyatt rewards club members can redeem or use points by choosing to stay here.

    Sitting in central Sedona, Arizona, less than a mile north of the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, the L'Auberge de Sedona Resort & Spa offers guests a peaceful getaway without sacrificing an in-town location. Recent visitors praised the resort's relaxed setting along the banks of Oak Creek and describe the lodge's guest rooms  complete with contemporary furnishings and high-tech amenities  as cozy. The resort also contains individual cabins with private porches or patios, as well as fireplaces for those who need a little extra room. No matter which type of accommodation you choose, you'll be treated to luxurious Italian linens, Illy coffee makers, complimentary high-speed internet access and L'OCCITANE bath products. Travelers also give kudos to L'Auberge's customer service, saying that everyone  from the spa therapists to the waiters at the Cress on Oak Creek restaurant  was extremely friendly. Don't miss the opportunity to experience the property's indoor/outdoor wine bar either. Just beware that everything here, from the parking fee to the service charge, is quite expensive.

    The guest rooms, or casitas, at the Boulders Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton in Scottsdale, Arizona (roughly 32 miles north of downtown Phoenix) look out over miles of cacti and rugged mountains. When you're not admiring the views from your private patio or balcony, order room service and curl up in front of your wood-burning fireplace. You can also play golf on one of two courses, lounge by one of four pools or grab a bite to eat at one of five restaurants. However, according to recent visitors, you'd be remiss if you stayed here and didn't indulge in a treatment at the massive on-site spa. And because of the resort's ties to Hilton Hotels, members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program can use points to pay for rooms – that means additional cash to invest in massages and facials.

    Mixing Spanish influences with the surrounding Sonoran Desert, the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia offers luxury befitting of any continent. Nestled in the heart of Paradise Valley, this 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 in-room 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 Spanish fare served at the resort's award-winning restaurant, Prado.

    Perhaps the most historical hotel in Phoenix, the Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort has been welcoming Valley of the Sun visitors (including such notable names as Irving Berlin and Marilyn Monroe) since 1929. And though competing resorts keep springing up around it, this landmark property continues to shine. Rising above the Camelback Corridor, this Waldorf Astoria property keeps guests busy with two exceptional golf courses, an award-winning spa, six tennis courts and eight swimming pools. On the inside, the Biltmore maintains its Gilded Age feel, with the lobby encompassing hardwood floors and low lighting and guest rooms sporting cozy furnishings and contemporary design elements. In addition to the beautiful grounds, the food served at the hotel's four eateries receives a thumbs-up from previous visitors, who especially love the contemporary American cuisine dished up at Frank & Albert's. All of these lavish amenities and accommodations, though, come at a high price point; however, Hilton Honors members may be able to earn and redeem benefits by choosing to stay here.

    This all-inclusive health resort and spa provides more than just a vacation, but a retreat. And guests say if you're looking for large helping of rejuvenation with a pinch of transformation, Canyon Ranch is the place to go. The 150-acre property offers a plethora of fitness classes, health programs and wellness consultations on top of various other amenities in-room and out. Much like the mantra of the ranch, rooms help travelers relax with feather beds, Italian linens, pillow menus and sound machines, not to mention impressive views of the mountain and desert from oversized windows. According to some recent guests, however, the most standout aspect is located outdoors. Visitors can hike around the surrounding Sonoran Desert, bike on rural country trails, traverse a high ropes course or play a round of golf. And still, other guests say the 80,000-square-foot spa — equipped with a salon, private sunbathing decks and a footwear analysis center — is the real treat. Either way, the on-site sustenance options are included in the room rate and instead of prices on the menu, nutritional values are listed. You can find Canyon Ranch 12 miles northeast of downtown Tucson.

    Sandwiched between Mummy and Camelback mountains, the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa is a great place to catch a glimpse of the Valley of the Sun at its finest. Downtown Phoenix is an easy 13-mile drive away from this JW Marriott, and downtown Scottsdale – full of shops, bars and art galleries – is 5 miles away. With numerous pools, two championship golf courses and tons of alfresco spaces, travelers feel the hotel provides plenty of opportunities to kick back and enjoy the surrounding desert view. Meanwhile, the Spa at Camelback Inn attracts relaxation-seekers with its soothing skin treatments, and the various on-site eateries are appreciated for their convenience. As for lodging, travelers loved the Southwestern-style decor as well as the private patios and balconies that came with them. What's more, Marriott Bonvoy members receive added perks like free Wi-Fi access during their stays here.

But guests don't recommend spending too much time in your room: Many praise the resort for its two sprawling pools (one for adults only), as well as its Lakeside Spa + Fitness center. And thanks to two 18-hole PGA golf courses, multiple tennis courts and a scenic walking trail, you can experience the property's stunning environment and burn calories at the same time (which means you can indulge in all of the flavorful Southwestern cuisine you want at the Flying V Bar & Grill without feeling guilty).

    Located in Gainey Ranch (a verdant part of Scottsdale known for its palm trees), the Hyatt Regency exudes a tropical-oasis-meets-Aztec-palace feel. Although guest rooms are spacious and chic  boasting flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and private patios or balconies  it's the 10 pools and man-made beach that garner the most praise from recent visitors. Numerous and varied, this Hyatt's swim spots cater to visitors of every age: Some have cascading waterfalls, others have fountains, but if you'd rather stay dry, opt for a gondola ride along the waterways. Though it may take some coaxing to lure yourself (or your travel buddies) away from the pool, guests also recommend playing a round of golf at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club, or indulging in a massage at Spa Avania. Then, cap off the day with dinner at one of several on-site eateries.

    Sure, this resort in Tucson, Arizona's Sonoran Foothills has the usual golf course (27 holes designed by PGA pro Jack Nicklaus), spa (a Red Door Salon & Spa) and gourmet dining (four restaurants, to be exact). But guests say that one of the best things about The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa is its family-friendly atmosphere. Younger visitors will find loads of toys at the Westin Family Kids Club, while certified staff members provide childcare and supervised kid-centric activities like outdoor games and arts and crafts. Guests also say that their children enjoyed this Westin outpost's pool area, which features a 177-foot waterslide. And with an exclusive adults-only pool, R&R-seekers can escape the noise. The only issue some travelers encountered at this property was in regards to the daily $29 resort fee, which is automatically attached to your bill whether or not you take advantage of the amenities covered by the charge. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    This mammoth resort in northern Phoenix is a major convention and family vacation hub. Though the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa can sometimes feel a little busy when it's hosting a special event, you should have no trouble finding a little peace and quiet. The sprawling property houses tennis courts, two 18-hole championship golf courses, multiple restaurants and several pools (not to mention a lazy river), so there's plenty of space to go around. Should you really require some alone time, you can always head to the Revive Spa or retreat to your guest room, where you'll find a soaking tub, a flat-screen TV and your own private balcony. Be warned that in-room Wi-Fi access costs extra. To help calm any financial worries, keep in mind that since this JW Marriott property honors Marriott Bonvoy points.

    Located just north of the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, the Kimpton Amara Resort & Spa features a more contemporary atmosphere than other Sedona resorts. Guest rooms are outfitted in stylish furniture and vibrant colors that mirror the nearby Red Rocks, and all accommodations are decked out in pillow-top mattresses, spa-quality bath amenities and patios or balconies. Visitors appreciate the resort's convenient location and the views of beloved landmarks like Snoopy Rock, and the hotel concierge can help arrange opportunities to explore the area by Jeep, on horseback or on foot. The Amara's facilities also earn high marks from visitors, who rave about the views from the outdoor infinity pool and the on-site restaurant. What's more, since this property is part of the Kimpton brand, IHG Rewards Club members can earn and redeem perks here. Just beware of the pricey daily resort fee when you book your stay at this resort.

    On the Gila River Indian Reservation just south of Phoenix, the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa is the premier spot to explore Native American culture. Because of its isolated location, rooms allow guests to see miles of desert from their windows (or from their private balconies). Still, "isolated" doesn't mean guests are bored. The resort saddles up to the championship Whirlwind Golf Club, while the in-house Aji Spa boasts a wide array of treatments. This Sheraton also offers easy access to the Wild Horse Pass Casino and the Rawhide Western Village. Meanwhile, the resort's marquis restaurant, Kai, is the only AAA Five Diamond restaurant in Arizona, offering an exquisite fusion of local indigenous ingredients and contemporary cuisine. And as the day draws to a close, hunker down in one of 500 rooms, equipped with plasma-screen TVs and the Sheraton brand's signature Sweet Sleeper beds. Because this resort is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
