Why we choose The Phoenician Canyon Suites

If you’ve never been to a desert resort, the Phoenician may have you wondering why you waited so long.

  • Watch the sunset from the furnished private balconies in every room
  • Spoiler alert: seven dining spots and nine pools for 60 rooms
  • A Master Sommelier hosts each afternoon’s wine tasting

Lots of high-end places have nonstop amenities. Lots of high-end places have phenomenal service. But when a hotel can put them together, you’ve got something special.

You might request the Therapeutic Turndown service - including a hot bath with soothing sea salts - each evening of your stay.

What you need to know about the hotel

It’s the best of both worlds here: a boutique environment with lavish resort amenities.

  • Get your swing on with 27 holes of championship golf—three nines named for their landscapes: desert, canyon and oasis
  • Take an audio tour of the resort’s art collection, whose pieces range from French tapestries to Native American sculptures
  • The Phoenician’s award-winning Tennis Garden offers 11 courts, four playing surfaces and private lessons to amp up your game

There are only 60 rooms and suites at this resort, but with the crazy number of facilities and amenities, you’d think it was more like 500. Just a few examples: three golf courses, 11 tennis courts, nine pools, a huge spa and fitness center, basketball, activity center with a mini-theatre and a million restaurants (give or take). No wonder so many celebs have visited. The resort isn’t naming names—privacy is taken seriously at the Phoenician—but they do admit to hosting President Obama.

As for the accommodations, they’re top-notch as well. We love the exclusivity the canyon suites enjoy, and you can’t go wrong with the 2,400-square-foot Presidential Suite. The Scottsdale area is very pretty, but we’re not sure there’s a good enough reason to leave the grounds.

As a guest, you have preference for tee times at the famed golf courses.

Where is it and what's nearby

The Sonoran desert makes a surprisingly scenic backdrop for the Phoenician’s oasis-like atmosphere.

  • Tour Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West, a 600-acre compound that includes a dwelling constructed entirely of native sand and stone
  • Forget the treadmill. Hike Camelback Mountain–a favorite workout for locals—and enjoy 360-degree views at the top
  • The Desert Botanical Garden is your introduction to local flora, with 145 acres of outdoor desert plant exhibits

Canyon Suites at The Phoenician is less than a mile from downtown Scottsdale, a vibrant city unto itself that’s close to even bigger Phoenix. Despite this proximity, the resort’s 300 acres of grounds (dotted with far more vegetation than sand) and Camelback Mountain views truly give you the feeling of being away from it all. 

Not surprisingly, almost everything in the Scottsdale area is somehow related to the desert—from museums to art to architecture. We recommend checking out the outstanding items (like Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece), but there are only so many cacti you can see before you want to return to the pools and golf courses of the resort.

How to enjoy Phoenix & Scottsdale

Phoenix may be the sixth largest city in the USA, but there is something glamorously rugged and untamed that makes it feel like you have just stepped into a cowboy movie. And the resorts of Scottsdale are legendary.

  • Charter a helicopter or airplane to explore the humbling majesty and stunning red strata of the Grand Canyon
  • Have dinner at the Biltmore. The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired restaurant is exquisite and the hotel’s guest book lists Marilyn Monroe and John F Kennedy among others
  • Pamper yourself with innovative spa and wellness treatments inspired by Sonoran Desert plants and local Native American traditions

With summer temperatures that rarely drop below 1000F, you could be forgiven for assuming Phoenix was born in fire, much like its mythical namesake. But of course, that’s the whole point. Phoenix is awash with sunshine year round and provides the perfect type of vacation weather: vitamin D guaranteed.

Its desert location provides the kind of jaw-dropping vistas that you’ll want to catch on camera. Sure, you’ll get some neat photos, definitely worthy of walls and frames. But the best bit of the view is the spine tingling sense you get. It may be the size of the sky. The immense blanket of stars. The crazy, yet familiar, silhouette of the Saguaro cacti. To feel it, though, you have to be there.
