Sanctuary on Camelback hosts Easter festivities

The Sanctuary experience is full of unexpected surprises, from catching sight of a hummingbird while dining on elements’ deck to finding a transformative moment in the meditation garden of the Sanctuary Spa. This Easter Sunday, April 5, hidden treasures will be plentiful at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain, thanks to its annual Egg Hunt and delectable Easter feast by Executive Chef Beau MacMillan.
The resort’s Sunset Lawn Garden will become an early morning playground for resort guests, with a hunt for hidden eggs and treats commencing at 8:30 a.m. Thereafter guests and locals are invited to a four course prix-fixe Easter Brunch at elements restaurant or an Easter Brunch Buffet in The Views Ballroom, both affording sweeping views of Paradise Valley and the resort’s namesake Camelback Mountain.
