The red rocks of Camelback Mountain loom over architecture inspired by Spain’s fabled Alhambra at the Montelucia, one of the newer Valley getaways. There are splashing fountains, a restaurant serving excellent Mediterranean cuisine, and a spa inspired by the hammams (public baths) of Morocco, all just a mile or two north of the Camelback Corridor. Guest rooms, which continue the Spanish/Moroccan themes, are divided into five different “villages.” If you like peace and quiet, ask for a room in the Bocce Garden Village (and have a bocce court right outside your door). The social-minded should opt for a room in the Kasbah Village, close to an open-air lounge and the main pool. Throughout the property you’ll see fascinating Spanish antiquities, including two giant amphorae in the entry courtyard and huge wooden doors that lead to the resort’s ballroom.
