Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain

Scottsdale, AZ

Built into the hillside overlooking Paradise Valley and Camelback Mountain, the 53-acre resort is that special type of Southwest hotel: cushy and super luxe on one hand but with a "spiritual, almost Zen-like" feel on the other. Not to get too hippie-dippie, but there's something magical about the red rock hills–and the hiking trails, pool, tennis courts, and outdoor patios are all designed to let you soak it in. $235/$520; 105 rooms & suites;
