Inspired by the splendor of the Sonoran Desert, the Palo Verde Spa & Apothecary wellness program is based on the natural healing powers of the earth’s most sacred resources. Personalized treatments blend desert elements in a range of locally-sourced botanicals and natural aromatics.
“The tranquil spirit of the desert is woven into the Palo Verde spa experience from the moment you step through the doors,” Miller said. Featuring an extensive array of massage, skincare, nail care and salon services, the spa experience includes meditation lounge, private spa pool with spacious lawn, and state-of-the-art fitness center feature panoramic views of Camelback Mountain.
“What really sets our spa experience apart is the unique hideaway feel,” Miller said. “Guests love to spend the day being pampered before relaxing by the private spa pool where they can enjoy lunch or cocktails served poolside while soaking up a few rays and taking in the sweeping view,” he said. “It’s truly a departure from the everyday, a luxury everyone deserves,” Miller said.
