Nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain, Delos Cooke’s hidden “El Vernadero” mansion has been the destination for travelers seeking tranquility and solitude since 1948. A charmingly intimate resort, this exclusive Spanish-Mediterranean estate encompasses a bygone era of elegance, refinement, and style. Aged wrought-iron and handsomely worn woodwork, along with a breathtaking collection of European antiques and Spanish tiles, line the stone-paved walkways throughout the Royal Palms Resort and Spa. Set amid lush courtyards and vibrant gardens, 119 guestrooms, suites, and villas reflect the ambiance, residential style, romance, and charm of early Spanish Colonial mansions.
