{GBF Travel + Style | Sanctuary Camelback Resort and Spa}

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Last month I snuck away to Scottsdale Arizona for a quiet desert getaway at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa where days blended into nights as I practiced the peaceful and artful indulgence of doing nothing. The sprawling resort was the perfect home away from home and the ideal surroundings to spend a few quiet summer days immersed in desert appeal.

A welcome departure from my typical vacation encircling sightseeing and "doing stuff", I spent my time chasing after lizards, admiring the eerily human cacti, pondering the feasibility of hiking the red rocks, and taking baths in the outdoor in the buff patio tub. The hotel was my only and final destination and it was my happy place.

I wore my Motel Clothing satin slip dress to dinner at Elements, the resort's award winning restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious meal sourced with fresh ingredients and locally grown produce and meats while watching a cast of shadows slowly follow the descent of the glowing sun over the rocky mountains. You know, the essential elements for a fabulous desert night.
