If you and your bachelor party are looking for the uber chill, pamper-me-every-minute, cater-to-my-every-whim, it’s-good-to-be-the-1% then the Sanctuary on Camelback is your spot. It has to be included here because it is so nice, but if you’re looking to party you’re probably not staying in Paradise Valley (though it is only five miles from Old Town Scottsdale so don’t worry too much).

The spa is ridiculous, the views extraordinary, outdoor activities abound, and you’ll leave here as relaxed as a monk after his morning meditation. Just in time to send the Bachelor off to a life of couples brunches and afternoon trips to the Home Depot.

Venue Tip: 

The spa gets tons of accolades so make sure to really take advantage of its “Asian-inspired treatments.” Just don’t think that leads to the happy ending some of you may seek.

The Good: 
A bit baller, a little lavish, and some serious SW style. Awesome views, tennis, hikes, service, accommodations, and tranquil relaxation.
The Bad: 
You aren’t getting your bachelor “party” on in a spot like this, but you will leave his fiancée happy you’re staying here, a little jealous, and possibly questioning your manhood.
