Great location near Camelback and the facility itself is pretty well laid out and easy to navigate - once you figure out where to go the first time. It is a resort that caters towards folks without kids, or folks who don't travel with them - at least on weekends. We were there with a large family group(16), Easter weekend...

My husband and I went to dinner at elements for my birthday. We started at the bar and visited with the most wonderful bartender, Hurley. He treated us like we were kings and queens. Explained the drinks to us, gave us the rundown of the restaurant, and was just a doll to hang out with. Unfortunately, I cannot say the...

My daughter and I went to Sanctuary Camelback for a pre-baby mother-daughter spa trip. It was fabulous.

Great place to stay. A bit pricy, but worth the experience. Attention to detail was a little disappointing, but overall it's a stay. Elements is a restaurant you have to try. The wait staff is very attentive and personable. The food is outstanding and worth the price.

I was on assignment for a client, so I was working most 0f the time. BUT the staff was outstanding, the environment relaxing and the food was fantastic. Would not hesitate to come back here for R&R. If you are looking to have a corporate event at a beautiful resort, do not overlook this venue.
