Leaving Arizona for the summer can be a nice escape, but let’s be honest – who really enjoys long, uncomfortable plane rides or those tedious, never-ending road trips? There’s no downside to relaxing and having a stay-cation in your own state’s backyard; it’s the perfect getaway to reenergize and revamp your spirits, not to mention, it’s way more budget friendly.
Between May 26 and August 31, the Royal Palms Resort and Spa is offering room rates 57-percent off normal pricing. The destination hotel is located at the foot of Camelback Mountain, but its decor embraces the sophistication of a Mediterranean villa and provides intimacy and privacy of a secluded retreat.
Interested readers should check out the “Luxe Lounging” package starting at $149. It includes a complimentary room upgrade, two Alvadora spa credits, two welcome cocktails from The Mix Up Bar, and a $25 credit to the resort restaurant, T. Cook’s.
The healthy and Northern-Mediterranean inspired restaurant offers a seasonal, three-course menu for $44 per person. T. Cook’s most popular dishes include their Roasted Beet Salad, Wester Ross Organic Salad, a Chocolate Praline Torte and more.
Perhaps most exciting is the resort’s Live on the Lawn Music Series. The series, every Friday before Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day, is an opportunity for guests to unwind with sips and sliders and listen to local bands on the resort’s gorgeous Vernadero Lawn.
The Royal Palms will continue the holiday celebrations on Saturday with a live DJ at the pool and Sunday with game night at The Mix Up Bar.
Guests looking for a slightly more relaxed experience can look into the resort’s Lotus Wei Summer Spa Experience. The package starts at $179 and includes a class massage or facial, 50-minute Lotus Wei massage or facial, and a 25-minute add-on of an express facial, back, neck or shoulder massage, or a 45-minute Mediterranean pedicure
The activity options are endless at this dreamy desert paradise, so next time you’re ready to board a plane for a sweet escape, consider a staycation at the Royals Palms Resort and Spa instead.
