With pools and posh rooms, this Arizona escape is actually a welcomed summer trip.
When you think of summer vacations, the desert is probably last on your list. But the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia is about to change your mind. But with two pools and private cabanas, and grand Moorish architecture designed to evoke cool Andalusian nights, it’s really not all that surprising that you’ll find yourself curious about a summer break in the shadows of Camelback Mountain. And if that’s not enough to entice you, consider this: the resort’s luxe 30,000 square-foot Joya Spa is offering daily deals throughout the summer. (A 50-minute massage for $120 on a Friday afternoon? Count us in, please.)
And be sure to come hungry. There’s a variety of places to indulge in deliciousness. Make time for fresh sangria at the M Bar, where there’s live music from Wednesday through Saturday, and exquisite tapas-style dishes at Prado. On Sundays, the hotel hosts a $39 Spanish-influenced Champagne Brunch, which includes the option to add on bottomless bubbly for $12.
If you book a stay between now and September 29, you can stay at this little slice of paradise starting at $129/night, which is up to 75% off peak-season rates. Parking is complimentary. To book, click here and use the code SUMFUN1.
