Whether indulging in a two-night stay or month-long getaway, guests of The Villas at Sanctuary enjoy all the resort’s concierge and in-room services, with a personal butler and private luxury vehicle available upon request. During their stay, Sanctuary’s world-class facilities are at guests’ disposal, including the award-winning Sanctuary Spa, fitness center, championship tennis courts, and Arizona’s most magnificent infinity-edge pool.

A unique setting for fine living, each villa occupies over an acre of land. Varying villa amenities are designed to suit any traveler, including:

Villa del Sol: This unique guest enclave is dedicated to complete wellness, with distinct spa-centric amenities and a strong emphasis on the whole mind, whole body focus of the world-class Sanctuary Spa. The 3,500-square-foot four-bedroom villa accommodates up to eight guests and features a treatment room for massages (spacious enough for couples) and a movement studio for private classes and personal training. The private lawn invites guests to linger with fire bowls, and the private pool and wraparound patio extend the outdoor draws. For larger groups, four additional Terrace Casitas are available for rent adjacent to the villa.
