Top 10 Phoenix Luxury Hotels and Resorts : Royal Palms Resort and Spa
Butter yellow walls topped off with red stucco roofs are complemented by palm trees that stretch up to the clouds and throw small patches of shade across the worn flagstone driveway. While it can certainly be mistaken for a Mexican hacienda, it’s actually our No. 6 Phoenix resort!
Embracing its Southwest location and Latin American influences, Royal Palms Resort and Spa brings a lush, tropical world to life out of the arid desert terrain. A colorfully tiled fountain with a mythical figurine gracing its center, brilliantly scarlet flowers and cushioned chairs make the Mansion Courtyard an oasis of tranquility. Meanwhile, the Royal Palms’ aquamarine pool beckoned our more playful side and the pillared cabana served as a welcome resting spot.
Through the archways and gardens full of cacti, citrus trees and shrubbery, Royal Palms’ casitas, villas and guestrooms mirror their verdant exterior. With a decidedly Spanish elegance, ruby red pillows with bronze embroidery and clawfoot tubs are just some of the luxury touches that await you! And if you’ve come to Royal Palms to spark some flames, just consult the onsite Romance Planner to execute that perfect proposal or weekend away!
