Soaking in the cool waters of The Phoenician’s pristine pool while watching the sun beat down on the toffee-colored Camelback Mountains one thing was clear to me: I was right where I belonged.

Arizona’s eclectic vibe is unlike any other. The pride that’s shown for the rich history and practices of the natives seems to shine throughout every detail – art, food, wellness, entertainment!

Scenes Around The Phoenician
While visiting The Phoenician, you’ll notice the nearly neon flowers popping up throughout the landscaping and a seamless combination of modern + vintage with stucco architecture and contemporary design elements that make this resort incredibly photogenic. Tan cabanas flank the Mother-of-Pearl pool that’s ready and waiting for a dip!
I love the look of the warm, tan elements in the evening time – glowing yellow lights dance off the stone structures creating such a cozy feeling! It’s almost as if the sun has never quite set in certain spots.
The staff at The Phoenician are warm, welcoming, and ready to serve. As a luxury resort, The Phoenician has done an impeccable job creating an environment that’s brimming with convenience yet feels spacious and relaxed.
My Favorite Spa Finds at The Phoenician
The Phoenician Spa coordinators have created an assortment of themed journeys designed to truly aid in your healthy transformation. These journeys include featured elements, essential oils, and the use of sound therapy to enhance your healing. I especially appreciated the offering of craniosacral therapy and lymphatic massage to assist in whole body alignment and the removal of toxins. Beyond the specialized journeys, there are countless wraps, facials, massages, and treatments designed to treat, heal, and pamper virtually every inch of your body. Most treatments are available in fifty or eighty minute intervals with the recommendation of adequate rest afterwards.
Between the transformative treatments at The Phoenician Spa you can lounge in and around the stunning rooftop pool. Don’t worry – if your day at the pool has taken a toll on your hair, The Dry Bar does a blowout that will have you ready to book a flight to Arizona before your next big event!
Fitness Finds at The Phoenician
