The Sanctuary was an amazing experience. The suite was specular with tremendous views of Camelback. You could almost reach out and touch the mountain! The staff was helpful, warm and professional. The food was delicious and accommodated dietary preferences. The spa was fantastic with a wide array of services to suit any need. I can't wait to return!

Just fabulous. Grounds are gorgeous. Elements restaurant is unbelievable. The spa is one of the best we've ever gone to - spa treatments and fitness classes were amazing. Staff is unbelievably attentive, but not at all obtrusive. Spot on food and drink recommendations for us. We've gone on many a girls trip, but this was the best by far. Don't... More

Just visited with my sister and had an incredible experience. We signed up to bike and hike and our guide, Steve, was terrific. We hiked Camelback mountain, lounged by the infinity pool, enjoyed spa services and workout classes. The food at Elements was amazing and I hope to return one day soon. The rooms are all private with plenty of... More

The rooms are spacious and beautiful, friendly staff, gorgeous setting. Wish I had had more time to lounge in the spa or soak in the generous in room tubs. Every detail was covered, from delicious hand-made candies at turn down to top notch hair dryers in the rooms.
