Spread across 23 acres in Arizona’s Paradise Valley, the Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa—Andaz’s first hotel in Scottsdale and 14th property worldwide—has made its debut. Established as a serene desert oasis, the location is framed by 50-foot-tall pine trees, cacti, and desert wildflowers.

San Diego-based firm Delawie Architects has infused the resort’s Guest House with an inviting, midcentury modern design. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls highlight the signature eatery—Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen—and lounge spaces, while the exterior features a large patio. The social gathering space offers a relaxing atmosphere during the day and evolves into a convivial cocktail venue in the evening.

Crafted by, Novato, California-based studio EDG Interior Architecture + Design, 201 bungalow-style guestrooms are adorned with vibrant color, folk art, and cultural patterns inspired by architect Alexander Girard and other mid-20th-century designers and artists. Ranging in size from 350 to 500 square feet, guestrooms and suites are clustered into four- to six-unit enclaves, most of which are equipped with private outdoor patios and lounge furniture. Individual guestrooms feature a front terrace with Spanish-style banco seating and contemporary picnic tables. Midcentury-inspired bathrooms offer grand showers and abundant natural light. Hidden among the accommodations is the Retreat, which includes 22 guestrooms and suites surrounding a pool and outdoor dining spaces.

More than 150 chaise lounges and beds and 13 private cabanas are installed across the centrally located Turquoise Pool’s expansive sundeck. The 12,000-square-foot Palo Verde Spa & Apothecary houses four indoor and three outdoor treatment rooms, outdoor hydrotherapy pools, a nail and hair salon, eucalyptus steam rooms, outdoor relaxation spaces, and a private pool.

The resort also includes 10,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor meeting and function space, such as the 3,900-square-foot Foundry ballroom, the 3,800-square-foot Easel and Mural Studios, and four working studios as large as 1,500 square feet. More than 36,000 square feet of outdoor event and function space is available.
