Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa

By Connect Staff, February 6, 2014

Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa sits on 53 acres of desert on the northern slope of its namesake mountain. The Scottsdale, Ariz., resort overlooks Paradise Valley, a setting ideal for pre- and post-event activities, including hiking and biking escapes or desert Jeep tours.

The property has more than 20,000 square feet of meeting space. The largest is a 3,204-sq.-ft. ballroom, which can be divided into five breakout rooms and has a business center, built-in outdoor bars and an indoor-outdoor fireplace. A wraparound terrace holds up to 150 for receptions and has floor-to-ceiling windows with mountain views. Meetings can move outdoors on the two-level Paradise Views Patio or the lower lawn, each overlooking Mummy Mountain and the McDowell range and accommodating up to 200 for receptions, or attendees can socialize around the infinity pool.

There are 105 guest rooms and six expansive mountainside estates, which have game rooms, secluded pools and private patios. An on-site restaurant offers vegetarian and gluten-free options, in-house smoked meats and a raw bar for iced shellfish and sashimi. A secluded patio bar serves small plates and signature cocktails, and an outdoor bar overlooking the infinity pool seats 30.

On-site activities include a spa with a movement studio and fitness center, infinity pool, two mountainside pools, a lap pool, tennis, hiking, rock climbing and bicycle tours. Teambuilding opportunities include a teaching kitchen with the resort’s culinary team; stargazing dinners or receptions hosted by local astronomers from the Challenger Space Science Center; mixology lessons; guided hikes; and organized motivational team experiences.
