Sanctuary: Unplug. Unwind. Reconnect.

Reconnect with the people you enjoy most during the best time of year to relax on the elements dining deck. Offering spectacular views of the mountains and the infinity pool, this is the perfect place to watch the sunset while savoring Chef Beau MacMillan’s award-winning cuisine. Seating is limited to just 30 people, which keeps the atmosphere intimate, so be sure to request the dining deck when making reservations.

In the mood for something new? The menu is constantly changing to reflect the best of each season, so you’ll always find exciting innovations. Prefer something classic? You’ll find traditional favorites as well, always with Chef Beau’s impeccable attention to locally sourced organic produce. Choose specialties including spa cuisine, gluten-free and vegetarian options, sustainable seafood and hormone-free meats…as well as selections from the impressive wine list.

There’s no better season than spring to marvel at the breathtaking sight of Sanctuary’s desert wildflowers blossoming throughout the 53-acre resort. Take time for the kind of thoughtful, relaxing conversation you rarely get to enjoy during everyday life, and rediscover each other in a setting that takes you away from the ordinary world.

While you’re at Scottsdale’s mountainside resort, drop by jade bar for elevated mixology daily, and live music every Wednesday through Saturday night during March. Or have fun at Mixology 101, an interactive cocktail experience held on Saturday afternoons for up to 20 people with reservations. (See for details on music and mixology.)

Spring is also the time to think about getting your feet ready for sandals. Sanctuary Spa’s seasonal pedicure, available only during March and April, is called “Step Into Spring.” Take a moment for yourself and enjoy a relaxing foot soak while sipping a Tropical Spring Breeze cocktail (also available with no alcohol). An exotic pineapple-coconut scrub will soften and exfoliate your feet, then a refreshing cool spearmint mask and warm towel wrap will revive your senses and stimulate circulation. Along with cuticle clean-up and polish, indulge in a leg and foot massage with the spa’s hydrating botanical cream. The 60-minute treatment is just $95, but it’s available only through April 30 so reserve your treatment early.

For reservations to enjoy the spa, dining at elements — especially on the new dining deck — an overnight stay or any special package at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain, 5700 E. McDonald Drive in Scottsdale, call 866.826.6581 or visit
