Secluded yet convenient, just 12 miles from the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (PHX) and 4 miles from Old Town Scottsdale with its world renowned dining and galleries. Nestled at the foot of Camelback Mountain and drenched in sunshine an astonishing 300 days a year, our resort features beautifully manicured grounds, two swimming pools/spas, and lodging is spread out in single story "casitas" where each unit has an individual front deck and rear porch. Participants need to be aware that because of the resorts large footprint, they may be required to walk up to 1/4 mile a day going from their room to the conference center and restaurant.
