The staff at Arizonagenda.com and UrbanEventsAZ.com, in collaboration recently had the opportunity to visit The Phoenician as part of our series on Hotels and Resorts around the valley. Up first in our series is The Phoenician.
Upon arrival, we notice the lush, manicured grounds leading to the exquisite art collection as we arrived at the main entrance. We checked into The Phoenician around 2pm and immediately experienced warm greetings from the valet crew as well as the front desk attendants. We instantly felt welcomed! This was a new but welcoming experience for our staff.
Our Itinerary was as follows:
- 3:00pm Check-In
- 3:30pm 80-minute Harmonic Bowl Healing & Phoenix Rising Scrub & Massage
- 7:30pm Dinner for 2 at Mowry & Cotton
Upon entering our King guestroom on the 4th floor, we are taken by the tasteful décor and high-end finishes throughout. The Superior King room is 600ft and furniture, well laid out optimizing every square inch of the suite without compromising the space. The suit also boasts a walk-out patio with love seat and modest table with 2 chairs to enjoy the outside view, which by the way, overlooks the pool area and is surrounded by beautiful palms, more lush and perfectly manicured grounds with an up close view of Camelback mountain.
We took a few moments to take in the beauty of it all and quickly lost track of time. Realizing that we’re scheduled for spa treatments in less than 10 minutes, we quickly hurried back to the lobby. The Phoenician campus is expansive at the least, so we had to ask for directions to the spa. To our surprise, an attendant was there within seconds to escort us to the spa via golf cart as part of the many services that are offered. We’re thinking … “nice touch” collectively.
The Spa and Wellness Center is nothing short of amazing! It is recommended that you arrive at your scheduled spa treatment at least 30 minutes prior for the full spa experience. The preparatory hot and cold hydrotherapy can last up to 30 minutes.
