Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa’s cuisine is masterminded by Food Network star Beau MacMillan, whose passion for local and seasonal produce shines through at Elements, the resort's signature restaurant. Meanwhile, mixologists at Jade Bar conjure up unique flavors from herbs and fresh fruit, in a dynamic atmosphere enhanced by live music, bartender battles, and early evening happy hours.
Elements – Beau MacMillan's concept restaurant is open all day, so you can start your morning with rich, gourmet dishes such as foie gras benedict. Lunch and dinner menus showcase MacMillan's Asian-influenced American cuisine, using organic and farm-sourced produce. Start with a vibrant heirloom tomato salad, then choose from indulgent entrees like miso-glazed salmon or Wagyu beef from Idaho-based Snake River Farms. The scenic deck area is ideal for a romantic evening under the stars.
Jade Bar – The namesake of the resort’s popular bar stems from the lounge’s back-lit jade onyx drink rail. Here, mixologists craft innovative cocktails such as the tantalizing Blueberry Tarragon Sour and the Sugar Snap Southside, a unique concoction flavored with lemon, mint, and sweet peas. Take a seat by the patio's fire pit and find yourself in awe of the beautiful Arizona sunset.
Private Dining – Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa’s private dining options include XII, an intimate space with a glass-walled show kitchen; Praying Monk, with a wine wall and stunning views of rock formations; Paradise View Patio, an outdoor terrace with views of Mummy Mountain and the McDowell Mountains; Sunset Garden, a charming outdoor space with capacity for up to 40 guests; Sunset Space, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and an adjoining patio; and Views Terrace, a secluded patio with breathtaking valley and mountain vistas.
Book a rejuvenating body therapy at the Asian-inspired Sanctuary Resort Spa. Try the signature Luk Pra Kope, a blend of Thai massage and medicinal herbs. Meditate in the zen garden or at the reflection pond, or get your pulse racing with a workout at the fitness center or a session in the lap pool. Improve your tennis game with a lesson from the resort's pro coaches, join a paddle board yoga class in the pool, or take a guided hike on Camelback Mountain's trails, many of which can be joined directly from the resort grounds.
