Arizona’s Sonoran Desert has long been a haven for rejuvenation. But, the MONTELUCIA RESORT & SPA elevates taking- it-down- a notch to an art form. President Obama and Kanye have visited this Gorgeous Resort. Perched at the basin of the desert and Camelback Mountains, the property is a Moorish style decompression chamber with a view. The Mediterranean vibe—antique wooden doors, wrought iron chandeliers, Moroccan tiles, and arched Romanesque courtyards, -imbue the property with breezy Marbella gentility. Napping in custom feather beds or sunning at one of the five pools is relaxing. But the real renewal takes place at the spa. Treatments -“Berber Cereal Peeling, Tu Na Chi Massage (acupressure, cupping, guasha), and a restorative sleep ritual -are modern interpretations of old world “cures” designed to promote internal and external balance. “Beyonce and Jay Z favor the “Diamond Facial Experience”. “For 110 minutes experience the latest in luxurious skin care technology, combined with three targeted massages to send your senses on a splendid journey. Our ultimate facial will provide your skin with an immediate and genuine cosmetic lift.” All for only $315. For more long term relief, Lifestyle coaches analyze guests’ behavior and compose “prescriptions” to alleviate chronic issues like insomnia, stress and fatigue. Indulgence reappears at the spa’s rooftop pool where a burger and champagne infused “gem elixir” (designed by the spa’s in house alchemist) add a gastro fab element to a cactus studded sunset.
