Sanctuary Resort

Your Sanctuary awaits.

Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa has always provided a welcome hideaway for travelers seeking an escape from the everyday, and the wellbeing of those who stay with us is our priority. We’ve initiated new best practices to ensure our guests can safely enjoy the serenity of our Sonoran retreat. Learn more here.

The renowned Sanctuary experience remains the same: 53 expansive desert acres that invite exploration, sweeping Paradise Valley views from our signature infinity-edge pool, and spacious casitas and villas that are situated and designed for privacy.

Per the Emergency Order issued by Maricopa County on Friday, June 19 the wearing of masks in all areas of public accommodation is now mandated. This goes into effect at midnight on Saturday, June 20 and will remain in effect until rescinded by the County. For further information click here.

We look forward to extending you our warmest Sanctuary welcome.

Enhanced safety protocols and adjusted operations

The wellbeing of guests and staff remains our priority. While Sanctuary is the same beautiful resort that you love, there will be new protocols in place to ensure everyone’s safety. The adjustments we’re making are informed by recommendations from leading global, national and state authorities. Some changes will be in plain sight, while others are organized behind the scenes. All are designed to safeguard our guests and associates, and we hope to offer peace of mind so that you can enjoy your time in this beautiful slice of paradise.
