Travel to the Desert

A desert oasis awaits at Royal Palms Resort and Spa

The pool at Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona


Just one hour and 15 minutes in the air (and 7 miles on the ground from Sky Harbor), and you could be on your way to Scottsdale’s Royal Palms Resort and Spa, a Mediterranean-style oasis with 30 newly renovated Valencia Casitas and views of Camelback Mountain. The $1.2 million makeover has outfitted the villas with wrought-iron four-poster beds, private patios, and in some rooms, fireplaces—the perfect respite after an early morning hike in the hills and dip in the pool. Your desert tan will complement Royal Palms’ cactus cooler manicure and pedicure, which comes with a frosty prickly pear margarita. The hotel offers a “Romantication” package, in case you’re looking to turn up the romance. But we think that mountain does the job just fine. royalpalmshotel.com
