    The perfect honeymoon stay

    My wife and I stayed here for four days following our wedding in the Scottsdale area for our "mini-moon" to kick off married life with some relaxation and alone time. We stayed in one of the spa villas. We couldn't be happier with our experience. First, the service was phenomenal, to the point where all the staff new us by Mr/Mrs even on our first day. Everyone was available and willing to make our experience better, from food, to drinks by the pool, to the spa, to room service, to bell desk. Second, the property and surrounding areas are beautiful. Third, the spa was a great experience--as part of our stay package, we got a significant amount of credit that gave us about a massage per day during our stay, and the folks at the spa were very good. Fourth, our villa was fantastic, including a great bed, tons of space, and a very nice outdoor bath that had candles lit by it as part of turndown service. We would highly recommend this resort anytime you are looking to have the best of comfort and service. We are already planning out return.

    Best venue we could’ve hoped for

    We love love loved this venue for our wedding! It provided the most spectacular views for our photos and the sunset there during cocktail hour was unreal. The team is also a joy to work with. Everyone from Robin in sales to the valet guys were so nice. We worked closely with Jessica, and she patiently and kindly answered all of our questions, was super helpful, and very responsive. Thank you Sanctuary, for making our wedding day magical!
