Ascent at The Phoenician has announced winners of its Phoenician Memories social media contest sharing everything from annual traditions to favorite experiences while staying at the venue.

Hiking Camelback Mountain, celebrating wedding anniversaries at the resort, enjoying afternoon tea with friends are among memories made at Ascent at The Phoenician at the base of Camelback Mountain, overlooking The Phoenician Golf Course adjacent to The Phoenician, a Luxury Collection Resort in Scottsdale, according to a press release.

“The Phoenician Memories Contest has been a fun way for followers of our social channels to reminisce about their favorite experiences at the iconic, AAA Five Diamond resort located next to our private, gated community of Ascent, which has quickly become one of Arizona’s most coveted new luxury real estate offerings,” said Todd Patrick, Replay Destinations’ vice president of sales and marketing, in a prepared statement.

Participants from all over the country submitted their favorite memories. The contest was open in June and the winners were recently announced on social media, the release said.

Phoenician Memories social media contest winners:

First Place – Kaitlin Ruscello of Pennsylvania; also an Ascent Golf Villa buyer; Grand Prize: One-night stay at The Phoenician with dinner for two at the resort restaurant, Mowry & Cotton

Kaitlin Ruscello’s memories:
“This last time we stayed at The Phoenician we brought our two children, 3 and 5. We introduced our 5-year-old to our favorite mountain, Camelback, where he climbed Echo in 43 minutes with no assistance! My husband is obsessed with challenging himself with a personal best time of 22 minutes and my personal best at 31! My daughter, age 3, absolutely loved the arts and crafts and games The Phoenician offered."

Second Place – Sonnie and Greg Carpenter of New Jersey
Prize: $250 gift card to The Phoenician

Sonnie and Greg Carpenter’s memories:
“It all started in 2005. We absolutely loved everything about The Phoenician. Our travel agent must have mentioned it was our anniversary because we were welcomed with anniversary greetings and a beautiful bottle of Champagne. We had a terrific time and we started falling in love with Arizona. Our 10th anniversary was extra special at The Phoenician.”

Third Place – Carlye Klick of Arizona
Prize: $250 gift card to The Phoenician

Carlye Klick’s memories:
“Several years ago, me and three of my girlfriends went to tea for the first time and absolutely fell in love with The Phoenician! This lovely tea experience is unlike anything I had ever done before and we just loved the attention to detail, incredible staff, and delicious food and beverage, not to mention the great views! Since then, this has become our favorite tradition. We love getting dressed up for the occasion. I also want to give a shout-out to Wanda and Sabrina at the Afternoon Tea who have always taken such good care of us!”
