We had just finished a weekend full of Super Bowl work and parties and decided to stay in AZ a few extra days to unwind. I'm so glad we chose Santuary. The pool area was where we spent most of our time and it didn't disappoint. From the morning hike up Camelback Mountain, followed by smoothies by the pool and...

We love this secluded resort. We both have personal ties to this property and we love staying here. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had the best room and special amenities like champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. We stayed here for our wedding night in February 2014 and had the resort to ourselves. Can't wait...

This property is a nice scale - feels very private and quiet even when its full. The staff is very friendly and pays attention. Rooms are interesting and vary by type, I would prefer a warmer, less modern decor, but the beds are very good and nicely appointed in both spa casita and king suite that I saw. Pack slippers...

My wife and I nervously chose Sanctuary over Four Seasons and The Boulders. I'm glad we did, because—for us—Sanctuary was more of a relaxing getaway than a bustling resort; all the luxury of the other first-class properties without the predictability or pretentiousness. We stayed in a Spa Suite (Jade X) which was more like a modern apartment than a hotel...
