The Phoenician, A Luxury Collection Resort

A lush desert resort reborn

Located at the base of Camelback Mountain, The Phoenician, A Luxury Collection Resort is a cactus-dappled, sepia-toned retreat with sprawling green lawns, spouting statue fountains and a community of curvy pools cuddled together amid a collage of cabanas.

Businessman Charles Keating spared no expense in the resort’s construction, importing white marble from Italy for the lobby, covering the serenity pool with mother-of-pearl tiles and gilding the ceilings in gold.

The resort recently underwent the largest renovation project since its construction in 1988 — a three-year, multi-phase face lift that includes a new spa and fitness facility, a redesigned golf club, refurbished Canyon Suites and reconceived eateries and shops.

By the project’s completion at the end of 2018, there will be no part of the resort that hasn’t been touched and improved upon.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • As you approach the resort, you’ll see fields of green, proud palm trees and just a touch of the Sonoran Desert in the native plants, not to mention the pools and Necklace Lake. The Phoenician is, in all respects of the word, an oasis.

  • The high tea service at this luxurious Scottsdale hotel pulls out all the stops. The crème de la crème of the property is rolled out for this treat — including a pianist, the finest of china and a world-class view.
  • The three-tiered Phoenician pools feature the original hand-tiled mother-of-pearl swimming hole on the lower level, crowned by recreational pools on each side of the upper level. A recently opened children’s splash pad with a water slide and huge tree house round out the fun in the sun.
  • The Phoenician’s grounds span 250 total acres with immaculate landscaping of lush green lawn areas, desert botanical plants in sculpted rock gardens, colossal waterfalls and fountains.
  • The down-to-earth staff here pampers, smiles and just about anticipates your every need.
