Scottsdale | Montelucia
Get your head in the clouds with a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Camelback Mountain in the aptly named Paradise Valley just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. The American Southwest has been an epicenter for wellness and spiritual retreats for generations with good reason; the Sonoran desert provides just as many opportunities for peaceful meditation and reflection as it does hiking and adventure.
It’s no wonder that baseball teams host spring training in locations sprinkled across the greater Phoenix area. Each year, fans of the Texas Rangers descend upon the area to watch them practice with other Cactus League teams including the Arizona D-backs, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals, LA Angels of Anaheim, LA Dodgers, Milwaukee Brewers, Oakland As, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants and Seattle Mariners.
To soothe the body after a day of adventure, there is no better place to indulge than Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia. Their signature massage utilizes essential oils from the rare native “Queen of the Night” cactus flower, and the private spa pool boasts un-obscured views of Camelback Mountain, setting the perfect ambiance for a sunrise yoga class or a moment of quiet personal meditation.
