The Refurbished Royal Palms

April 9, 2007 By: Debbie Strong Travel Agent

Arizona property unveils the new Alvadora Spa Suites

The Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, AZ recently completed a dramatic makeover—$12 million worth of expansions and enhancements.  The new Montavista Terrace Room

Most strikingly, the renovation created an all-new enclave
of 70 rooms that surround an intimate Montavista, a romantic
Mediterranean-style courtyard with a tiered garden, reflecting pools and

Also new are the two-bedroom Alvadora Spa Villa and six
Alvadora Spa Suites. Suggest these spacious suites to clients who want to enjoy
fitness amenities and spa treatments in the privacy of their own quarters.
Several in-room spa services are available only to guests of the Alvadora Spa
Villa and Suites, including pampering Foot Rituals and the Savasana body

Design-wise, the new spa suites feature a color palette of
neutrals punctuated by splashes of lavender and sage. Mosaic tiles, dark wood
floors, leather furnishings, fountains, fresh flowers, fireplaces and
color-therapy lamps complete the look. Other in-suite amenities include a
soaking tub and steam shower, as well as a built-in therapy table.

Natural Healing

Alvadora's concept is based around the ancient energy
philosophy of chakras, and that theme is reflected in the new suites. Each
morning, guests are given a daily intention card, stone of the day, and a
suggested yoga pose to balance the energy connected with the day's chakra. At
night, guests enjoy an evening ritual that includes a 15-minute in-room chair
massage followed by an aromatherapy steam shower or candlelit drawn bath
color-coordinated with the chakra of the day, and a cup of tea.

The two-level open air Alvadora Spa, which was built in
2002, has 10 treatment areas with private gardens, an Acqua Dolce Villa with
two heated stone tables under custom overhead showers, a Watsu pool with an eight-foot
grotto waterfall shower, a full-service salon and a 24-hour fitness center.

The most requested treatment is the Renaissance Massage with
Footbath, according to spa manager Michelle Kinney. Contact her at
