Arizona's Best

Joya Spa

An exotic journey through the Moroccan desert

No question, Scottsdale is a spectacular spa oasis, and Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia gets bragging rights as the most exotic. Setting foot on the pristine resort property, populated by fountains and flowers, sets the tone; the grandiose staircase leading up to the Moroccan-inspired spa seals the deal. Then you reach the Joy of Intention, where you chose one of five “intention” stones, whether it be “clarity” or “energy,” followed by the Joy of Purification, quartz crystal to absorb any stress or negativity. All that before you’ve even bundled into your luxe spa robe. The 32,000-square-foot spa is as impressive as your arrival, with every detail adding to your relaxation, from the dimly light relaxation lounges with individual beds draped for privacy to the outdoor rooftop pool overlooking Camelback Mountain. Services cover the spectrum from holistic treatments, like cupping, acupuncture and IV therapies performed by an on-site naturopathic physician, to organic facials and decadent body polishes. We love the Restorative Sleep Ritual, a stress-relieving full-body reflexology addressing pressure points in the hands, feet and scalp, combined with an aromatherapy massage and hot towel foot treatment created to calm the body and mind for better sleep. In the Moroccan spirit, the Hammam Experience can be added to any treatment, a bathing ritual that takes you from hot to cold to increase circulation and flush toxins (and it feels oh-so good). Of course, steam rooms, whirlpools and saunas are at your blissful disposal, not to mention a rooftop restaurant, juice bar and state-of-the-art fitness center
