Pool and mountain view at the Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain

Almost every view at the Sanctuary at Camelback looks out on the mountain

The Basics

With the Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa’s views of the mountain and of Paradise Valley, you’d think you were out in the Arizona desert somewhere, and had it all to yourselves. But this seemingly isolated mountainside resort, with its 150 rooms and six private homes, is actually only a few minutes from the heart of Scottsdale’s restaurants, entertainment, and shopping.  All of which makes it popular with publicity-shy celebs, and ideal if you want an intimate setting (no more than one wedding a day is scheduled) while still offering your guests plenty to do.

Wedding Details

Groups of up to 150 are comfortably catered to at the Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain, with all their venues taking advantage of the outstanding views. Make a dramatic entrance down the stairs at the top of the Sunset Garden, or, for the ultimate in intimacy, take over the four-bedroom, brick-lined Casa Montana, a private home with its own pool, patio, and billiards room, and three wood-burning fireplaces.

Keep in Mind

The Sanctuary Spa has special packages for the bride and the groom, and the restaurant, Elements, is overseen by Food Network celebrity chef Beau MacMillan.
