The Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia

Our History

The jagged profile of Camelback mountain stands above the rugged desert landscape of Paradise Valley. During the day, sunlight casts stark shadows across its craggy visage. As the sun sets, the lights of the city illuminate the dark sky around it, wreathing it with an ethereal glow.

This is Montelucia - the Spanish work for "mountain of light". A lyrical description of the prized property upon which you now stand.

Years ago, this was simply a quaint destination for warm-weather weddings and vacations. But in 2004, ownership changed hands. And that's when a startling transformation began. The new owner, accompanied by his architect and visual consultant, traveled to Spain and morocco. There, they soaked up the sights, the texture, the aromas, the old-word history and unique culture of those timeless lands. And then they brought it all back with them. And spent the next four years infusing it into every authentic, hand-crated detail you'll find here at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia.

As you take in these exquisite mountain views, we invite you to relax and unwind. Take a stroll around the manicured grounds. Feast upon our authentically delicious cuisine. Then take your repose in our award-winning Joya Spa. Once you settle in, your senses will begin to absorb the light, the color, the unique sense of place that evokes the heart and soul of Southern Spain. No Passport Required.
