The Top 10 New Resorts for 2003: Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain, Paradise Valley, Arizona

<< Back to Robb Report, March 2003

Ancient people once gathered on Camelback Mountain to make offerings to their gods. Today, this peaceful setting continues to awe and inspire.

If you seek privacy and quiet coupled with luxury, you’ll find it at this secluded 53-acre resort. Its indoor/outdoor Asian-inspired spa offers a Zen meditation garden, reflecting pond, and Watsu immersion pool. The Sanctum—a private outdoor environment with a vitality pool, deluge shower, misting system, and fire pit—invites you to experience the elements of heat, air, and water.

The vast infinity pool (the largest in Arizona), shaded lap pool, two mountainside pools, new tennis compound and pro shop, and Elements, the resort’s signature restaurant, offer ample leisurely pursuits. Nearby, you will discover hiking trails, biking tours, rock climbing, riding stables, world-class shopping, cultural events, art galleries, and top-rated golf courses.

Sanctuary partners with some of Arizona’s premier physicians and medical centers, enabling guests to enjoy the growing trend of "procedure vacations," including vein removal or skin treatments, coupled with a spa and resort package.
