Conference at The Sanctuary
Reviewed 3 days ago

Incredible accomodations and service. Every employee at the Sanctuary said and executed an "anything-you-need" attitude. The Sanctuary isn't the cheapest, but, you do not come her for that anyway. One the best places to stay anywhere in the world.

Can I Actually Say "Perfect"?
Reviewed 1 week ago

Well, it's easy to find something to complain about -- even in a 5-star resort and spa. I've tried and tried, but cannot come up with a thing. The Sanctuary was perfect. We stayed for a week in March 2019 and it was truly difficult to leave. The physical beauty, the service, and the food -- thanks Beau MacMillan -- and the weather (which I realize that The Sanctuary had nothing to do with, but still ... ). We will be back -- still one signature dish on the menu at Elements we've yet to experience.

Luxury spa getaway in the desert
Reviewed 1 week ago

Superb service, beautiful location. Very pricey but perfect for a relaxing, short getaway. Wouldn’t recommend a long stay due to the price and a limited selection of eating venues & activities on-site. Lots of golf and shopping nearby, great location a short Lyft/Uber ride to the Old Town/downtown Scottsdale.

Wonderful and relaxing get away!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Everything was absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived until the time we left we had the most relaxing and amazing time. The service was phenomenal!!! We loved our room which was well appointed and the view of Camelback Mountain was gorgeous. The bed and pillows were so comfortable as well. We loved the location of the hotel as it was close to Old Town, the Stadium and everything!! We will most definitely return.

Nice pleasant surrounding good attention to detail
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is a nice location with high level of service and attention to detail. The gym was reasonably well equipped and there were places to walk and exercise
Food was good and the turn down service had some special touches so make sure you enjoy this
Can be very hilly to get to your room walking but they do provide transportation in golf carts
