Truly at Sanctuary

I am a Virtuoso Travel Agent who has the honor in staying in outstanding hotels all over the world. The Sanctuary is indeed just this. Quiet, peaceful, private, luxury without being over the top, relaxed, amazing views, amazing food and spa!

Great staycation
Reviewed 1 week ago

We live close by and always wanted to do a staycation here. This place is expensive during the peak season so we stayed here during the offseason (read summer). We had a great time and ordered room service. Was a great place for an escape from the kids.

Girls getaway

Amazing service in a serene setting. Spa treatments were top notch and food was high quality and beautifully served. Lots of great options to choose from in Scottsdale but this is really one of the best.

We spent 4 nights at Sanctuary in one of their Spa Suites in the beginning of January. Our experience at Sanctuary was perfect from check in to check out. The room was beautiful, warm, great design touches and so so clean. The bathroom was perfect and the outside tub is exactly as pictured on their website and big enough for two. The spa is wonderful with long hours, soft robes, and clean facilities. We each had two massages that we thoroughly enjoyed on the property. The entire facility is immaculately well maintained and the service from all property employees we encountered was amazing. I couldn't recommend this property more highly.

Perfect for Our Honeymoon
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Sanctuary is indeed a special place absolutely worth visiting while you are in Arizona! We are already planning a trip back for an anniversary. My husband and I were blown away by the friendly, prompt service and attention to detail by the staff. We stayed for four nights for our honeymoon and received so many congratulations along the way. We booked two services at the spa (romance package and scalp massages) and I would highly recommend doing so when you stay! Our room was amazing (we had a Spa Suite) and clean. We enjoyed the little treats for turn-down service at night and our dinner at elements was incredibly memorable. We can't wait to go back!
