We spent the second half of our road trip to California at the breathtaking Montelucia resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was the best 36 hour vacation we could have imagined and had an amazing time relaxing at the spa (best ever!), laying by the pool, and indulging in delicious food. While we definitely splurged, we knew that we won't be taking any sort of "real"vacation any time soon so we made the most of the quick stay. Everything about this place is over-the-top-beautiful and man, did they ever spoil us (cupcakes & champagne in the room! champagne at the spa! two desserts at dinner!) all weekend and everyone on staff knew our names! And all because I took my own advice and simply mentioned that we were celebrating our belated birthdays and our cross-region move back to California while making our reservations over the phone! We love you, Montelucia, thanks for being all sorts of special.
We totally felt like royalty, even if it was only for only a few hours... and even if we are only about 1/800th as rich... or famous.
