Sanctuary On Camelback Celebrates 10 Years

I’m a big fan of birthdays and anniversaries. I believe that major milestones should be celebrated in major ways. Just check out the 2011 issues of American Spa, where we toasted our 15th anniversary all year long as an example. So when I heard about the Sanctuary On Camelback’s plans for celebrating 10 years, I had to share.

Throughout 2012, award-winning Scottsdale resort is celebrating its 10thanniversary by awarding 10 valuable prizes at random times throughout the year, a couple of which are spa related. Among the  planned surprises:

1.      Upgrade to a Mountainside Estate, one of a selection of exclusive homes set high on Camelback Mountain for spectacular views

2.      Hot air balloon ride

3.      Half day in Sanctum, a private outdoor spa suite, with a couples spa treatment and champagne and strawberries

4.      Voucher for a complimentary two-night return stay

5.      Surprise dinner in XII, the ultimate private dining room with a view to the resort’s show kitchen

6.      Private one-hour cocktail party under the stars at edge, Sanctuary’s outdoor bar deck, with up to 20 friends for a local patron (to be planned for a later date)

7.      Private mixology 101 class on guest's casita patio

8.      One-year Sanctuary Spa membership for a local patron

9.      Private cooking class

10.  Dessert surprise for all dinner guests one evening at Sanctuary’s award-winning restaurant, elements

“The past 10 years have been extremely rewarding for all of us at Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain. In one decade, we have seen the resort grow to become one of the finest and most recognized boutique properties in the nation,” says Mike Surguine, Sanctuary’s vice president and general manager. “We want to share those rewards with our loyal guests and the Scottsdale community that welcomed us so warmly 10 years ago and has grown to be such an important part of our family.”
