This is a wonderful desert getaway with the maximum in comfort and service. It is right at the foot of Camelback, beautiful landscaped and scenic. Their service is impeccable and it was a warm and inviting atmosphere.

We loved our one-week stay at the Sanctuary in April. We stayed in the Camelback Suite which was renovated to be very contemporary and minimalistic - exactly what we love. Stunning views from our suite. We dined a number of times at the Elements restaurant and Jade bar - food was great, consistent. We had some friends visit with us...

My boyfriend booked us spa treatments, dinner and overnight stay as my Christmas gift. As Phoenix local I have been the Jade Bar on several occasions and it's a favorite. The rest of the hotel, spa and Elements restaurant followed suit. They have great service without feeling overly formal or stuffy. The spa is super expensive, but on par with...

I have now stayed at Sanctuary for 7 straight years for a business conference. Each time the stay has been enjoyable with or without family. The accommodations are excellent, the staff knowledge and helpful, and the location great, and the views phenomenal. I look forward to Sanctuary each year and hope to come back more often soon!

It's their people that really makes the difference and really makes this a great resort. In addition, the Sanctuary offers a fantastic chef/dining experience, beautiful setting with views, location, excellent spa and fitness, pools, tennis with views, and easy access to hiking, shopping, and restaurants. Rooms are nice, comfortable, contemporary/Spartan almost, not posh, but very comfortable and quiet with nice...

We had an amazing experience at the Sanctuary Spa. The Facials we got were rejuvenating - catered to each of our unique skin's need. Ambiance was very relaxing and welcoming. We definitely recommend and are looking forward to visiting again.

This is by far the nicest resort I have attended. Each person greets you with a friendly smile, and most try and do it by name. Of course the food and cleanliness were very good (as is expected from a high-end location) but the resort experience went much further than that. From the advance email notification to personally touch bases...

My daughter and I stayed in a 'mountain view' suite. The room was absolutely beautiful. A luxury living room with a wood burning fireplace and more. The bathroom had a free-standing tub (with a cup full of epsom salt) which came in very handy after hiking a few hours on Camelback Mountain.
