Opening Late Summer 2016

Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Spa is a place to inhabit, design, explore and create. Set within a 22.5-acre desert oasis with stunning views of Camelback Mountain, this sophisticated urban Paradise Valley resort offers 201 guestrooms and suites centrally located a short distance from the historic downtown.  Drawing inspiration from the colorful and blossoming art scene that took place in the 1950’s, the resort will pay homage to the mid-century modern art movement from notable artists like Alexander Girard, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Paolo Soleri, who used the desert as a creative landscape for expression. Guests will see this brought to life at our Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Spa through bright colors, folk art, and cultural patterns and further incorporated into the resort’s architecture and design.

Guestrooms at our Scottsdale resort are situated in unique bungalow clusters, providing guests with a new take on an intimate desert experience. These guestrooms feature two private terraces, including some rooms with an outdoor shower. Throughout the resort, the spectacular mountain views and desert landscape will provide guests the opportunity to connect to the environment and activate their senses.

The Scottsdale resort will also feature three pools, which enhance the serene and relaxing environment of the property. One of the pools is located within the luxurious spa, which offers unique services in four indoor and three outdoor treatment rooms. Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Spa also includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, a signature restaurant and chic bar and lounge, with a 4,000 square foot terrace overlooking the main pool. 

Intimate gathering and social areas incorporating cottonwood, pine trees and statuesque palm trees will be created on the property. Mid-century accents, jaunty graphics, and bright, bouncy colors are woven into the resort’s architecture and design, inviting guests to make their own serendipitous finds. In addition, our Andaz Scottsdale resort will include approximately 10,000 square feet of indoor and 10,000 square feet of outdoor event facilities, ideal for meetings, group events, and weddings.

This sophisticated urban resort is within walking distance of numerous restaurants and entertainment venues in the Paradise Valley area and two miles north of downtown Scottsdale and Fashion Square shopping mall. Guests of Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Spa will enjoy easy access to the area’s numerous world-class golf courses and outdoor activities.
