Royal Palms Resort & Spa
The Royal Palms Resort & Spa is considered a true hidden gem in Scottsdale, Arizona. This intimate resort is nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain near Downtown Scottsdale – and though it is central to all of the best shopping and restaurants, the resorts nine acre property makes you feel a world away.
– The Grounds –
What differentiates the Royal Palms from any other resort in the Scottsdale area is the breathtaking grounds. This historic resort resembles a Spanish revival architecture featuring beautiful dark wood, lush green gardens with private romantic nooks. Also take note of the colorful mission style tiles ascending the charming stairwells.
Labyrinthine walkways lead you through the gorgeous grounds of the Royal Palms Resort offering sweet surprises along the way; follow one path and you’re lead to a lavish lawn with yard games. Follow another pathway and you’re taken to a hidden cove with the sounds of a beautiful flowing fountain – make a wish!
With every turn of the properties greenery and archways, you will find yourself being cast away into another world outside of Arizona.
– The Rooms –
The grounds are not the only takeaway from the Royal Palms Resort experience – choose from a traditional Estate Room, spacious Villa, or an elegant room for two in their romantic Estate Suite.
– The Pool –
The Royal Palms Resort pool is quaint and calming with first-come, first-serve lounge chairs and exquisitely designed Cabanas. Upon reserving your private poolside cabana, enjoy laying out under the shaded canopy on your plush day bed while sipping on one of the Cabana Cafe’s creamy Oreo milkshakes or refreshing fruit daiquiris.
The lunch menu is perfect for a relaxing pool day while offering simple dishes and sides such as their signature fresh guacamole or crispy french fries served along side a Turkey BLT sandwich – you can even turn that sandwich into a lettuce wrap like I did to keep looking slim at the pool.
Along with everything else, the clear view of Camelback Mountain in the background is what truly make this pool an excellent getaway for the afternoon.
With a property unlike any other in Scottsdale, prepare yourself for a truly romantic escape from reality when staying at the Royal Palms Resort & Spa.
