When we are visiting Phoenix and want to have a special dinner, we often go to Elements. It is a beautiful restaurant with a very modern, zen design and feel. The food and service are superb. Elements sits on the side of Camelback Mountain and the views, particularly at sunset, are exceptional and memorable.

Wonderful Way To Spend The Day

A friend suggested a girl's day at the spa/pool for her birthday at the Sanctuary. She received a spa gift certificate and had heard wonderful things about the Sanctuary.

Two of us purchased a fitness pass in which we used the fitness facilities, took an excellent yoga class while our other two friends were getting facials and massages at the spa. We all spent the remainder of the day relaxing in the comfortable padded lounge chairs, cooling off in the sparkling pool, enjoying the beautiful views of the resort , and ordering lunch/drinks by the pool.

The pool waiters and waitresses were friendly, very tentative and continued providing ice cold pictures of water, checking to see if we needed any additional beverages/food items and brought us chilled towels to wipe our faces with. The food and drinks that we ordered were excellent.

No complaints here. Looking forward to another day at the Sanctuary and putting this on my gift ""wish list"". Highly recommended for a day of R&R or mini day vacation for yourself, you and your significant other or with some friends.

HardDriv Review is Nonsense Sanctuary is Great

I have eaten at Sanctuary at least ten times and the food and service are always impeccable. If HardDriv is the guy I think he is, he not only lit up the cigar in the middle of dinner, but when asked to extinguish it, he snuffed it out on the table! He was so bombed his date had left him and he did not realize it for at least 30 minutes!

I for one was glad that the restaurant manager asked him to to put his cigar out. Elements is a fantastic place to is not the snack bar at the track.

Phenomenal views, excellent food

First, the guy who is upset because he got busted for lighting up a cigar in this place must have an interesting view of the world. This restaurant is open air and is connected to the hotel lobby, the bar, etc. Smoking a cigar here would immediately polute them all. I'm a cigar smoker, but I would ask first always, especially in this type of enviornment. The food was excellent, the panoramic view is as advertised. Phenomenal wine list including many wines by the glass (Cakebread Cellars Chardonay) that you don't generally see served by the glass. The huge surprise for us was how kid friendly this place was. I noted that we needed a high chair in our reservation and it was ready along with crayons and an ""activty book"" when we arrived. Not at all what I was expecting given the venue.

Great Dinner Ruined By Rude Manager!

We let ""Iron Chef"" Beau MacMillan cook whatever he liked for us yesterday evening and he created magic on a plate. From the Beef Tartare & Cassava Chip Napolean to the Asian inspired Escargot, it was one amazing plate after another. The dining room is well appointed and our table was perfect. Unfortunately a very rude manager ruined the evening for us by losing his cool and letting his position go to his head. We had a simple misunderstanding regarding the restaraunt's cigar policy. The cigar was immediately extinguised at the manager's request (it was not even fully lit yet), but evidently that was not enough. After spending $400 on dinner for two, I would have expected to be treated with a little more maturity from this egomaniac. I am very dissapointed that one person was able to so thoroughly destroy what was an otherwise a very pleasant evening.

Great Experience

We loved our weekend at Sanctuary. The property is beautiful, the staff is great and leaves little to complain about. Although I thought it was good, I suggest that Elements is a bit overrated. There is better food off of the property. Of course, who wants to leave the property!

My wife and I stayed at The Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain and it was PERFECT! The spa casitas are amazing with the outdoor bathtubs and we even toured some of the private homes they offer, AMAZING! The cuisine in 'elements' was superb and not as expensive as one would think. The Sanctuary Spa was a peace of heaven in the well named area, Paradise Valley. We will return again, soon.

A great place to stay and relax!

I stayed here for two night in a mountain casita with my girlfriend and we enjoyed it very much. Wonderful little touches like tealight candles, bath salts, slippers. The infinity pool was great and dining at Elements was fabulous! I highly recommend a stay here - if you want a little more romance, book a spa suite.

I have now visited Elements three times and I have to say that is the most spectacular dining ever! The views are beautiful, the food remarkable, and the service impeccable. I highly suggest getting one of the spa suites which face Mummy Mountain inviting a few intimate friends over for wine, watching the sunset from your private balcony and then taking the short walk through the zen like grounds through the Jade bar to a perfect dinner.
