Arizona in general, and Paradise Valley in particular, happens to be home to some of the world’s most spectacular spas and Resorts, with multiple resorts ranking at the top of the Conde Nast annual lists. Due to the lack of commercial development, Paradise is an Oasis between Phoenix and Scottsdale, and perfectly situated to harbor these expansive retreats. Notable examples are many, and include the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort, Omni-Montelucia, JW Marriot Camelback Inn, and the new Mountain Shadows Resort. Prime locations for shopping, dining, and relaxation, residents benefit from membership to some of the world’s most luxurious resorts.
