Scottsdale is home to several award-winning luxury resorts, all carefully designed to sooth frayed nerves and tempt the senses with extravagantly beautiful desert surroundings.
Sanctuary on Camelback, famous for its views and A-list clientele, is one of the city's most coveted boutique luxury resorts. Sip on a cocktail at the Jade Bar and drink in the mountainside views, or relax at the resort’s peaceful, Asian-inspired spa, which features a Watsu pool, reflecting pond and meditation garden.
Grand architecture, floral walkways and rows of palm trees delight the senses at Montelucia Resort and Spa, inspired by the white-washed beauty of Southern Spain.
Or take a break from the hectic pace of modern life at JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort and Spa, which celebrates Arizona history and native culture, while exuding Southwestern warmth and hospitality with unique desert-inspired architecture and design.
If your way to relax includes a great round of golf, book an adobe casita at The Boulders Resort, where two Jay Morrish designed golf courses offer breath-taking views of the surrounding Sonoran Desert, including some of the region's most fascinating displays of prehistoric boulders.
Finally, if you want to stay in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, book a room at the FireSky Resort and Spa, a stylish boutique resort with a gorgeous open-air courtyard, lagoon and fire pits. The hotel is within walking distance to Old Town Scottsdale restaurants and shopping.
