Years in the making, construction of the Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley has finally been approved by the Paradise Valley Town Council. At a cost of nearly $2 billion, the property will feature 200 luxurious guest suites and bungalows, and 94 resort villas.
The resort will employ simple elegant forms to create relaxed comfortable spaces. Designed to evoke the feeling of a small village, rooms and suites will be connected by courtyard gardens and shaded walkways. Large windows with deep overhangs will promote the resort’s indoor – outdoor living ethos and provide unobstructed views of spectacular Camelback Mountain and the star-studded Arizona night skies. The restaurants, ballrooms and meeting rooms will flow onto adjacent outdoor spaces to take advantage of Arizona’s climate. The resort will feature the country’s longest pool, at 400 feet, and a spectacular 20,000 square feet spa.
The property, under the management of Scottsdale's Five Star Development, is set to break ground in later this spring and be finished by 2018.
The Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley will bring the Ritz brand back to the Valley after the recent closure and transformation of the Phoenix Ritz to The Camby Hotel.
