Expert Review

Scottsdale and neighboring Phoenix are all about relaxation and, consequently, upscale resort spas. This elegant resort wraps its guests in desert beauty, making it an alternative to the more urban Phoenician. Situated on 53 acres on Camelback Mountain, 105 quaint casitas provide swanky, spacious quarters designed to blend with their desert environment. There's also a mountain-side infinity-edge pool and an exceptional, Asian-inspired spa that comes complete with Zen meditation garden and indoor and outdoor treatment rooms – even if you don't spend the night at the resort, don't leave Phoenix without trying the popular Watsu water massage. 2008 Smart Luxury Award winner
