Where do I start with describing the fabulous time my friends and I had at the Sanctuary? The property was beautiful and beyond our expectations. We stayed in Casa 204. Plenty of room for four girls and all of our luggage! The staff was professional, courtesy and funny. Ingrid especially ! What a lovely person !! She made each morning... More

Just had a meeting here for a group of about 60' and the property was great. Beautiful outdoor spaces, good food, very accommodating! Rooms are very well appointed, views are amazing, and everything is close, not so spread out like some properties. Meeting spaces had nice patio spaces to allow guests to enjoy the outdoors, even with all day meetings.

Stayed at the Sanctuary many times, but never experienced their private homes. Stayed in Casa 17 and it is amazing. Has both a private pool and a tennis court. Just doesn't get much better and the service is always first rate!

When we arrived we were told conflicting information on being able to use the main pool. The main pool is the only place where you can order food and drinks. Turns... More

The Sanctuary Camelback Mountain is simply magical. The rooms are well appointed with stunning views of the valley and lush grounds with beautiful Arizona desert folliage. Peaceful and private yet full of life and energy the Sanctuary offers something for everyone! I look forward to returing soon!

Clearly, serious investment has been made in order to render this place as comfortable as it can get in a most picturesque location near Camelback Mountain. Very tranquil and super organised, small buggies will whisk you around to your room if you wish; lovely restaurant area offering great valley views and overlooking the excellently maintained pool/spa area.
