Why Stay At Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia
Inspired by southern Spain's Andalusia region, the 253-room Montelucia is set at the foot of Camelback Mountain and surrounds a happening pool scene.
With its graceful plazas and arcaded walkways, this 35-acre retreat located at the foot of Camelback Mountain so resembles an Andalusian pueblo blanco that you'll forget you're in Arizona. The 253-room property is filled with unexpected amenities (a fleet of bicycles; an old-fashioned ice cream parlor), which helps to lures a younger crowd to the fountain-filled courtyards and cabanas around the Kasbah pool. You won't find Arizona's golf set here. Instead, stylish sybarites divide their time between the whimsical 31,000-square-foot Joya Spa, where a three-foot crystal is set beneath a ceiling painted to resemble the Moroccan night sky, and Prado restaurant, for live flamenco music on weekend evenings.
Wake up before the sunrise to hike Camelback Mountain. This challenging trail starts a few miles from the hotel, and a walk to the starting point avoids the crowded parking scene.
New chef Michael Cairns is known for serving regional ingredients at Prado restaurant. The signature dish? The chef's tagliatelle—house-made pasta with pork sausage, local greens, legumes, charred tomatoes, and chili.
Arrive at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) which is approximately 13 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.4949 East Lincoln Drive, Scottsdale, Arizona, United States
