Royal Palms Resort & Spa

4.5* out of 5 stars

A Manor of Taste, Royal Palms provides an engaging and unforgettable journey for all senses. Set at the foot of Camelback Mountain, the Royal Palms Resort and Spa is an elegant Spanish Colonial-style hotel. Once a former 1920’s home and wellness retreat built by Delos Cooke - so his wife could enjoy the healing properties of the Arizonian desert - its Alvadora Spa, luxury historic rooms and suites and farm-to-table fresh dining now offers a tranquil, romantic retreat.

Accommodation at the Royal Palms Resort & Spa

Designed with elegant European furnishings, rooms at the Royal Palms are spacious with views of the mountains or the pretty courtyard gardens and finished with historic touches. Plush bedding, luxurious amenities, and cosy seating areas offer a homely feel, and ground floor rooms come with pretty, private terraces that lead onto the lush gardens. Larger individual bungalow style Villas offer additional privacy along with crackling fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, and deep bathtubs.
