    Amazing spa! Restaurant is phenomenal. They accommodate vegan requests. Try to get the table all the way to the front left to catch the most amazing view of the sunset ...

    Bartenders are the best!

    The spa gets tons of accolades so make sure to really take advantage of its “Asian-inspired treatments.” Just don’t think that leads to the happy ending some of you may seek. Read more

    Property is small, low key & great for relaxation. Good hiking nearby. Some of the rooms needs updating, but who cares when you have an OMG view of Camelback Mtn. The Spa is well worth the price :)

    One of my favorite destinations. Be sure to participate in the many classes offered at the gym. Can't beat sitting poolside sipping on a blood orange margarita.

    What used to be a tennis ranch (captured in Slim Aarons photographs from the 60s) is now a secluded, luxury resort with an amazing spa. Book a bamboo lemongrass scrub.

    You have to go to Jade Bar. By far, the best cocktails in town.

    When at Jade Bar order from the menu and leave your regular cocktail order for another place. These bartenders create some of the best cocktails in AZ period!
