As you bask on a chaise lounge under the desert sun, marveling at the Mediterranean-inspired architecture setting the backdrop for your picturesque afternoon, you may wonder how you arrived in Southern Spain. Take another look, while the stunning Montelucia Resort & Spa may look and sound like it belongs in a trendy European metropolis, travel no further than Scottsdale, Arizona to delight in a true resort destination that offers everything from first class shopping to five-star accommodations.
Situated in the Sonoran Desert, and nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain, every view of the surrounding space is breathtaking. Whether you choose a spacious guestroom or palatial suite, you will begin your day swaddled in comfort and elegance. Once you leave your plush accommodations activities range from relaxing and rejuvenating to exhilarating and unique. Hike up Camelback Mountain, push the pedal to the metal at Grand Prix Racing School, or shake it up during a cocktail mixology class at Mbar, the hotel's trendy tapas and tequila bar. Indulge yourself in some "me" time during a sunrise yoga session, or meditate poolside at the peaceful Oasis pool. Or, take leisure to the next level at Joya Spa, a full-service spa inspired by the Moroccan desert, complete with a detoxifying hammam circuit and gem and flower essence infused treatments. Your time at Joya will transcend more than the physical, your experience will encompass a complete transformation, enhancing both your state of body and state of mind. Care to shop? Dulcinea, a boutique within the resort offers high-end fashion for the discerning shopper, and even Joya Spa offers everything from apparel to home décor. Dining at Montelucia is an experience just as distinctive and refreshing as the array of activities available. Dine alfresco in the balmy desert air while enjoying international cuisine at award-winning Prado restaurant, or if you happen upon one of the (very rare) cooler desert days, cuddle up by the outdoor fireplace at Crave Café. No matter what your mood, there is a plate to please your palate at Montelucia. But, if you are too exhausted from the day's activities to enjoy dinner out, retreat to your room and savor dinner in, with 24-hour in-room dining. Welcome to Montelucia Resort & Spa, truly an oasis in the desert.
