Having travelled to Arizona a number of times in the past, I have to say Sanctuary exceeded all expectations. This is a luxury property through and through.

This was a short honeymoon for us and the Sanctuary couldn't have been better. Our first night we ate at elements who treated us to a complimentary glass of wine. The room was fantastic and clean. Throughout the stay every staff member we encountered was pleasant, courteous, and helpful. I am a picky traveler and struggle to find even the... More

I was in town for my girlfriend's weekend baby shower. Stayed overnight at Sanctuary, had the Casita. This is a beautiful resort, a great place to stay away from the city, yet you still within the comfort of Scottsdale and Phoenix. The room is spacious, especially for a solo traveller. Bed is very comfortable. Pillows soft. The bathroom at the... More

I loved this room, the décor was amazing! The patio space was so large and spacious and had a comfy round bed with awning. The outdoor tub was also very romantic. The room was very large and multi-level. I felt like I was in a one-bedroom apartment. It was absolutely perfect!!

Love this resort. My only regret is that I only had two nights here and am hankering for more. They arranged easy transport from the airport. Were very gracious about cutting my three night stay to two due to funeral services I had to attend. No charges, no attitude just let me make the last-minute change. They were seamless at... More
