  • Luxurious Retreat
  • Fodor's Choice


  • Inner-city getaway with mountain seclusion

Fodor's Review

This luxurious boutique hotel is the only resort on the north slope of Camelback Mountain; secluded mountain casitas are painted in desert hues and feature breathtaking views of Paradise Valley. Bathrooms are finished in modern details with elegant sinks and roomy tubs. For those who enjoy going eau and even au naturel, some suites have outdoor tubs. An infinity-edge pool, Zen meditation garden, and Asian-inspired Sanctuary Spa make this a haven for relaxation.

The hotel's restaurant, elements, is a local hot spot for cocktails at sunset and award-winning cuisine.
