With designer meeting rooms, breathtaking outdoor spaces surrounded by abundant gardens and orange groves and seasonal banquet menus and packages throughout the year, Royal Palms Resort and Spa, A Destination Hotel, is anything but traditional when it comes to meetings and conferences.

Located at the foot of Camelback Mountain, Royal Palms combines the graciousness and sophistication of a Mediterranean villa with the intimacy and privacy of a secluded retreat. Royal Palms indoor meeting venues provide space for up to 200 attendees and are just as exceptional and personalized as the resort itself. Wall tapestries, antique furniture, stately stone fireplaces in each meeting space, natural lighting from the numerous arched windows and doorways leading to outdoor patios and stunning views of the tranquil gardens and mountainside come together to create an inviting atmosphere ideal for cultivating creativity. Individual interior designers were brought in to create a distinctive look for each of the four meeting rooms, ensuring that the 9,083 square-feet of meeting space is completely distinct and far from the traditional meeting venue.  

The lush grounds of the resort are a welcome oasis in the heart of the desert. Orange groves, colorful gardens with exotic plants, imported stone walkways and over 11,370 square-feet of outdoor gathering areas create a tranquil space for year-round meetings and activities. Groups are invited to take the meeting outside to enjoy the weather at any of the six locations including the orange groves, a one-of-a-kind experience not offered anywhere else in Arizona.  

Royal Palms is among the only resorts in the country to offer seasonal banquet menus in addition to the unique meeting venues. The renowned T. Cook’s restaurant, which has received both local and national acclaim, offers a thoughtful and ingredient-driven seasonal banquet menu unparalleled by other resorts. The northern Mediterranean inspired menus are created using fresh, local and in-season ingredients and can be completely customized for each meeting party. Conference and meeting groups have an opportunity to dine at any of the indoor and outdoor meeting venues, which includes under the trees of the orange groves with Camelback Mountain in the background.

With a long history of hosting exceptional meetings and events in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area, Royal Palms is fully versed in the logistics of creating memorable events. Seasonal meeting packages at Royal Palms include:
