Nestled at the base of picturesque Camelback Mountain in the exclusive enclave of Paradise Valley, Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia is an intimate oasis, inspired by the exotic locale of Spain’s Andalusia region. Recently re-branded as an Omni property, this iconic Scottsdale resort boasts a primo position just outside of town with jaw-dropping views of craggy, imposing Camelback Mountain. Guest rooms and suites are lavish, with four poster beds, luxe marble bathrooms and an earthy palette designed to reflect the surrounding desert landscapes. Both starry-eyed couples on romantic getaways and families on vacation are well catered to, with plenty of room to stretch out thanks to three pools (two stay open until midnight), multiple restaurants, and the enormous, fully-immersive Joya Spa, with a style reminiscent of Spain’s Alhambra palace.
In the Area
Join a guided hike or strike out on your own to see some of the Sonoran Desert’s starkly beautiful landscapes up close. Picturesque Camelback Mountain is a convenient five minute walk from the resort with various types of trails. Pinnacle Peak is ideal for horse-riding and rock climbing, while Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve has over 120 miles of trails. See even more of the area’s indigenous flora on a visit to the Desert Botanical Garden, where you’ll encounter all manner of otherworldly plants and flowers. Then hustle back to Montelucia for free wine tastings at Prado restaurant– be sure to taste local drops, as Arizona now has its own well-regarded nascent wine scene.
How to Get There
We arrived late on Fri, 07/07 and was greeted by exceptional staff. We were provided with detailed information about the resort and received a golf cart ride from self-park to the room. Ordered room service and food was delivered promptly and was quite tasty.
The rooms are large with a well-appointed bathroom. The patio looked right into Camelback Mountain. Everything was clean and turndown service provided each evening.
We enjoyed a wonderful spa treatment the following day with friendly staff again. If I had to offer a suggestion for the spa, it would be to not have robes and shoes already in the lockers but have them stacked by sizes to accommodate the varying sizes of people.
We reserved a cabana for the day and received top notch service and enjoyed a full day of quiet.
The resort is beautiful and lots of activities for those seeking it. Again, if there is anything I could suggest, it would be to have staff who clean or attend to the outdoor furniture on a regular basis, but that was not a deterrent.
The concierge offered a plethora of places to visit and dine during our stay and we took advantage of some.
It was a wonderful experience, filled with some of the nicest staff I've encountered.
We arrived for my birthday to find out we would have to pay $22 for parking and a $29 resort fee. When I called prior to arrival I wasn’t told any of this. The grounds were beautiful. We felt rushed by the pool workers because they thought a storm might come. No storm came and so we were rushed out for nothing. Barely got to enjoy anything there. It was my birthday so I was very sad.
From the ice-cold beverage offered upon arrival, everyone we encountered was happy to be of service! This is a beautiful property all around. The beds are super comfortable and amenities beyond amazing!
The Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia has the best service. We thoroughly enjoyed all of their amenities and the local fan fare. We loved the Joya Spa experience - it was absolutely amazing. Definitely worth it!
So incredibly disappointed in my spa experience on 7.6.18. I’m not a posh, high maintenance woman with Botox and silicone. I am somebody who appreciates a good massage when I splurge for one. When I get one it is just that, a splurge. I work hard for my money and expect to get what I pay for.
When asked if I want special attention to a certain area and I say, no, please don’t waste all the time on my back. My limbs received less than a minute of attention. By that I mean 14 seconds, 16 seconds and 14 seconds for the front and back of my arms and legs. My feet and hands were 5-6 seconds each. Yes, I counted because my first arm felt very fast. I figured it would get better when I was supine. It did not. Now, I used to do massage so I know this isn’t correct. I’ve had them before and also know it’s not typical. This was the worst I ever had. When she pushed on trigger points (causing pain) she needed to tell me how to breathe through it. She did not. Again, I did not ask for that. I know my back is bad. Please listen to me. I opted for additional treatment on my feet, which wasn’t explained. I thought it was a massage. Nope. Paraffin treatment. I didn’t want that. $20 down the drain.
My husband and I try to do a couples massage once or twice a year and I was excited to try this spa as a new destination for us. Not sure this will be it. These services are too expensive to not get quality.
And the woman dealing with the lockers was so rude and less than helpful. We had to ask for a locker and she never explained how to actually lock/unlock it. She never smiled and it seemed like we were bothering her even though she was standing there staring us straight in the face. Very sad. I feel it went downhill after that experience.
