As temperatures in the valley are finally under triple-digits, I know many of you are looking for a relaxing place to spend your weekends. And I have the perfect spot for you! Last weekend I visited the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa which is located on Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley, conveniently located 8 miles north of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. This award-winning resort is a hidden gem in the area. As soon as you step onto the property you can immediately feel the zen vibes through the lush, green landscaping and the private atmosphere.
We started the day with lunch at the Elements restaurant where you can indulge in the farm-fresh American Cuisine and impeccable service. No matter where you sit in the restaurant, you will have a beautiful view of the resort which overlooks the mountainous terrain. The restaurant is stunning and the food is outstanding! Our server Cassandra was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided great recommendations. We started with the old bay poached shrimp and roasted eggplant hummus. As you can see, the shrimp were huge and delicious!
Then for lunch, I had the turkey burger with a side salad. The turkey burger came on a warm pretzel bun. All the food was delicious and so fresh. Even with all these food, we had to get dessert especially after our server Casandra told us about he pb bombe! The pb bombe is very rich chocolate and creamy peanut butter. I suggest sharing this dish with others as it is very rich in flavor. If you are not much of a chocolate person I would go with the key lime tart. The key lime tart has a flaky crust, topped with coconut sorbet. This dessert is a light refreshing option.
After lunch, we enjoyed the afternoon by the pool. A pool day was so needed after all my traveling this month. The resort pool is breathtaking. You get to enjoy the gorgeous views of the mountains over the crystal blue infinity pool. One thing I love about this whole resort is that it’s so quiet! You can truly relax and enjoy the moment.
