We loved discovering the "new" luxury of The Phoenician in Scottsdale Arizona, A Luxury Co


The recently renovated Phoenician located at 6000 East Camelback Road, in Scottsdale, Arizona is luxury resort that offers visitors three distinctive choices of accommodations. The Phoenician Resort is comprised of The Phoenician, a luxurious hotel, The Canyon Suites, a boutique suite hotel, and The Phoenician Residences, private residential villas.

In 1985, Charles Keating envisioned building a European inspired resort using only the finest materials and craftmanship on at the base of Camelback Mountain. The resulting resort used imported Italian Marble, 24 karat gold etched ceilings, a mother of pearl swimming pool and eleven rare Steinway Pianos situated on lushly landscaped grounds. Mr. Keating purchased 250 acres to preserve the surroundings of this unique desert resort.
