Camelback Mountain is a force to be reckoned with in Arizona. First off, if you haven’t climbed it, it’s like you haven’t become a member of our state’s in-crowd, and secondly, when you cross over from Phoenix to Scottsdale, there’s no way you can miss it! Beyond the impressive formation and the amazing hiking, though, it hosts some of the greatest resorts and homes in the entire state, one of the very best being Camelback Inn.
The resort is tucked back and away on Camelback Mountain, and just received a $50 million renovation that covered just about every single area of the property. They opened two amazing new restaurants, the most popular being the first and only Laurent Tourondel’s BLT Steak in Arizona, added organic herb gardens, outdoor fire pits, a new bar that offers nightlife and fantastic specialty drinks, and a completely redone main lobby. Not to be left out, every single one of the 453 guest rooms have been pampered, showcasing features that are completely unique to the Camelback Inn, such as visible wood beams, vintage adobe brick, and a warmth that is only created from designing with an eye for the highest level of comfort. Boasting unmatchable food and a spa as famous as the name Camelback, this resort has done its homework on serving their guests the very best, and only the very best.
As you walk the amazingly peaceful grounds of the Camelback Inn you are gently serenaded by traditional Native American pipe music, and you simply feel yourself being transported away from the busy city below. While all resorts are created to promote relaxation, one thing you really feel on this property is the innate tranquil atmosphere being created by the sheer quiet nature of the grounds. There is no intruding noise, no busy activity, and nothing that ruins the soothing ambience exuding off the property. Camelback Inn has nailed the one thing everyone is looking for when traveling away from home: the application of calm. It’s not something you can bottle, it’s not something we all feel very often, but as you stroll up the hill to your room at the Camelback Inn and find yourself smiling, you know full well that this is what they’ve magically captured, just for you.
