Looking for a wellness retreat? Try the Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa for a little rest and relaxation, with the majestic Camelback Mountain as the backdrop for the 23-acre property. While there, try a treatment that uses botanical ingredients at the new Palo Verde Spa & Apothecary. Pull up a chair and watch a chef prepare your meal at the resort’s Weft & Warp Art Bar and Kitchen right after a hike to Pinnacle Peak.

For a girlfriend getaway, reserve a suite at the Joya Spa at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa for a day of private treatments, or lounge at one of the three pools.
