Talk about decompressing. This is the place just has a calm aroma and vibe about it. The rooms are Zen-ful modern with wonderful beds and linens. The spa is a must visit and don't stop at just one treatment either. My favorite is the massage / stretch combination that is 2 hours. The restaurant offers unique dishes that are smaller...

Absolutely LOVED our stay here. Hubby was here for business - very impressed with meeting rooms and food served. I was here for pleasure - tagged along. We were lucky and had a casita near the spa. I enjoyed a massage and pedicure - wonderful service and "feel" in the spa. We have been looking for a new place to...

Very nice bedrooms, excellent service, beautiful views and great atmosphere. I stayed only 2 days for business and would love to back for some holidays in the future. I did not have the opportunity to use the Spa and pool area, but I received good feedback from my colleagues.

The last of our four city/hotel stays... was fantastic. The team welcomed us, helped us to our Casita and then showed us how to relax. The site was amazing. The room was beautiful and the gym was perfect. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

The Sanctuary is an absolutely gorgeous property on Camelback Mountain. The views from the "casitas" are beautiful and the rooms are nicely appointed but a little bit worn. Upkeep at the resort is a bit slack with peeling varnish on railings and housekeeping staff that does not report minor deficiencies such as bulbs that are burnt out. The concierge, bell/valet...

This was Superdoc and my first visit to the Sanctuary and we were bowled over.

Firm favourites were the farm stand hash for breakfast and the thai chicken for lunch. Lazing...
