We know by now you've likely had it with winter, and to think- a whole other bleak, mundane February chill to get through. Groundhog Day predictions or not, you need some sun so we say head west to the Arizona desert and immerse yourself in a blanket of warmth under the Scottsdale skies.

The InterContinental Montelucia Resort & Spa is new, luxurious, and has its arms completely outstretched, waiting to pamper you, how can you say no? Putting the nearly-eternally-perfect weather aside, it's got Prado which just happens to be on Esquire's Top 20 New Restaurants Of The Year List. It's got smashing views of Camelback Mountain. It's got oversized rooms and a litany of activities that will keep you as busy as you want to be all day long. And, ahh....yes, it's got the award-winning Joya Spa. A Moroccan-styled palace of bliss with a list of innovative treatments so long you'll have to extend your stay just to try them all out. Consider trying the Grand Palace Suite when booking a treatment...complete with its own king bed, So-Sound treatment tables that vibrate to the beat of your choice of music, a fireplace & flat screen TV.

It's 30 acres of heaven in the middle of the desert- now that's what we call an OASIS.
