Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia

Nestled at the base of breathtaking Camelback Mountain, this intimate desert oasis, inspired by the exotic locale of Spain’s Andalusia region is reminiscent of a picturesque Andalusian village, featuring arching entryways, tranquil fountains and floral walkways.

When you escape to this exclusive and romantic destination, you won’t have any reason to leave. Take a stroll down Alhambra walkway on your way to bask in one of three sparkling pools. Enjoy a soothing massage at award-winning, Moroccan-inspired Joya Spa or tempt your taste buds with culinary delights, influenced by the flavors of Spain and Mexico at Prado or Taqueria Centro. When you are ready to wind down for the evening, retreat to an elegantly appointed guest room with beautiful views of a velvet black sky, perfect for stargazing.
