You’ve officially made the transition from Ms. to Mrs. and are looking for the perfect, most romantic honeymoon destination. What’s more ooh-la-la than five-star treatment, luxe spa services and dreamy Sonoran Desert vistas? Not much! Plan your honeymoon in Scottsdale with this guide to romance.
Think about it as your passport to romance. The Royal Palms Resort & Spa’s gifted Romance Team is your personal concierge to all things romantic, from dream proposals to lavish honeymoons. The resort’s signature Romantication experience provides an intimate couples getaway that can include decadent couple’s spa treatments, rose-petal turndowns and private dining in an intimate Via Cappello, candlelit “lover’s corners” tucked away throughout the grounds.
The vows have been made and the guests have gone home, but the fun is just beginning! Honeymoon in style at The Phoenician, where an array of activities like fine dining, championship golf and relaxing spa treatments will keep you just busy enough. Relax into your new life together with a couple’s massage at the spa at The Phoenician or reserve a private poolside cabana for a full day of lounging. After a romantic dinner at J&G Steakhouse, toast to new beginnings with chilled champagne in your room.
Do you and your husband or wife love the spa scene? Book the Made in Arizona Spa Package at JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa for some homegrown pampering. Included are your accommodations in a casita guest room, daily breakfast for two in Rita’s Kitchen or Sprouts, and one 60-minute massage or body treatment per person/per day at The Spa at Camelback Inn. Choose from a variety of treatments that make good use of locally-sourced ingredients, like the Desert Nectar Honey Wrap that features Arizona Honey or the Adobe Clay Purification Treatment with local red adobe clay.
If it’s good enough for Beyonce and Jay-Z (they honeymooned here!), it’s good enough for all of us, right? Commemorate your first days as husband and wife with Romance in Paradise, a special that includes a one night’s stay in your choice of a mountain casita or suite, or spa casita or suite. You’ll both indulge in plush robes and a goose-down feather bed, plus chocolate-covered strawberries, champagne, and rose-petal turndown. Make your celebrity-worthy honeymoon complete with dinner at elements (included!), a restaurant headed by Chef Beau MacMillan who’s a star in his own right with several appearances on The Food Network under his belt.
Experience authentic Southwestern amour with the Hideaway Package at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. You’ll be greeted with a Love Potion welcome cocktail, couples’ bath amenities, and love sonnets and stories to enjoy together. You’ll also enjoy a 1:00 p.m. late check-out. A fantastic add-on to your stay is the Celestial Picnic, a gourmet meal for two set on a secluded resort lawn. The resort chef pairs all the traditional picnic accoutrements with a bottle of champagne or wine and packs it in a deluxe basket. A complimentary constellation chart guides you through the night sky, or you can arrange for a private stargazing session with a professional astronomer.
