About The Royal Palms Resort Wedding Venue

Royal Palms Resort and Spa is an incredible romantic retreat amid sweeping Arizona landscapes. While it originated as a 1920s winter home, today, it welcomes guests worldwide as a rejuvenated and secluded oasis amidst the mountains. Its architecture is a beautiful blend of Spanish Colonial style and Mediterranean influence. 

As a resort guest, you can stay in one of their 119 gorgeous hotel rooms. Enjoy indulgent amenities like their outdoor pool with private cabanas, or book a treatment at the sensational Alvadora Spa throughout your stay. Plus, with gourmet in-house dining, you’ll never even have to leave the resort (if you don’t want to!)

Details of the Grounds

Moreover, Royal Palms Resort is a truly tranquil respite amid the Arizona mountains. Begin your wedding day in a luxury bridal suite, surrounded by your favorite people, as you get hyped up and glammed up for your wedding day. 

Their indoor and outdoor spaces can be reimagined as gorgeous ceremony and reception spaces, depending on your guest count and vision. Imagine your ceremony in a beautiful stone-walled courtyard surrounded by flowering gardens and spacious lawns. Over the roofline of the resort, you’ll have views of towering desert mountains and palm trees that stretch into the sky. Stately outdoor fireplaces adorned with your signature florals and drapery make a beautiful backdrop for a romantic vow exchange. 

Those same outdoor spaces are incredible when transformed into a reception space. You and your guests can dine under the stars, surrounded by beautiful landscaping and romantic bistro lighting. With the resort’s implicit beauty, you won’t need much to dress up the space. It’s also a magnificent canvas for you to use as a foundation for your dream wedding. 

Royal Palms Resort also has two lovely indoor salons that are a lovely respite from the desert heat, particularly in summer. The Estrella Salon has beautiful wooden beams lining the ceiling and beautiful contemporary light fixtures that complement the room’s Mediterranean colors. A private patio and the Estrella Garden accompany the space. Their second indoor space is the Palmera salon, a warm and inviting room with an ornate fireplace and an adjoining comfortable lounge.

Whether you host your wedding indoors or outdoors, it will be a spectacular and memorable event!
