Exclusive services, a chauffeured Infiniti and a private pool are just a few mentions of what the luxe Canyon Suites at The Phoenician Resort have to offer. The true luxury desert oasis in Scottsdale, Arizona is a resort within a resort.

We recently stayed in a luxury one-bedroom suite, which featured 1,200 square feet, one and a half bathrooms, four-person dining table and floor-to-ceiling windows that lead to a private terrace overlooking the pool (available only to guests of the Canyon Suites).

A stay in the Canyon Suites includes daily complimentary French press coffee in the lobby or delivered directly to your room, which we enjoyed on our terrace. For all one-bedroom suite and presidential reservations, the stay also includes packing and unpacking services, the only way to truly unwind after arriving.

The Canyon Suites ambassadors continued to assist us during our stay with every little detail to make our stay more enjoyable. Just tell them when you would like to have dinner and where and they will make the arrangements for you. Before heading over for dinner, be sure to check out the “Hour of Joy” in the lobby of the Canyon Suites where each night resort sommeliers showcase a complimentary selection of wine from boutique vineyards along with a sampling of tasty hors d’oeuvres.

Steaks here are the name of the game so a visit would be remiss without sampling the 12-ounce bone-in ribeye or massive 24-ounce prime porterhouse. A nightcap (like a prickly pear margarita) should be had al fresco at the Thirsty Camel bar where the Sonoran desert sunsets here are simply breathtaking.
Photo Credit: The PhoenicianWe also enjoyed a therapeutic couple’s massage (one of the best we ever had) at the Centre for Well Being, the property’s on-site luxury spa. Be sure to arrive early to spend some time in the Meditation Atrium to fully unwind before a treatment. The massive 22,000 square foot spa has 24 private treatment rooms and offers everything here from hot stone rituals, wraps and facials to fitness classes, weight training and a full-service salon.
When it was time to say goodbye, our friendly ambassador, Kayla, offered continued personal assistance in booking airline reservations, transportation to the airport or arranging for our boarding passes to be printed. Our stay at the Canyon Suites offered us a true chance to escape, relax and unwind.
