Food was exceptional! Every person you encounter has a smile and couldn't have been friendlier- they must've been trained, it was remarkable. Concierge excellent! Our accommodation was lovely, a suite w/ separate bedroom (2beds). A fold-out sofa was in the entry room for our 3rd person. Hiking, shopping, dining will definitely consider this one again.

The Sanctuary on Camelback makes Paradise Valley a true Paradise

By: Triptek


Reviewed on: 31 Mar 2017

The Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain has become one of our favorite resorts after our recent stay. When we first saw our beautiful Suite, we asked if we could stay forever. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was very functional as well as sleek and modern. The deck had beautiful views of the valley. Our first night, we planned to go out, but chose to stay in and order room service from Elements - The excellent on site restaurant. The restaurant overlooks the infinity edge pool that has a great staff who take care of your every need. The Spa is peaceful and offers great massages and the fitness classes are great. Every staff member went above and beyond to make the guests happy. We can't wait to return.
