Do you have a place you love to travel to over and over again? Arizona is one of my favorite states to visit. They have National Parks, picturesque mountain views, delicious foods, historic resorts, cool cacti, exciting nightlife and much more. With so many resort and hotel choices in Arizona, especially within the Phoenix area, it can be overwhelming to choose. I want to help you narrow it down by sharing 7 reasons Hyatt Regency Scottsdale is where you want to stay.
7 Reasons Hyatt Regency Scottsdale is Where You Want to Stay
1. Picturesque Property Plus Stunning Mountain Views
The Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa is a 27-acre family friendly resort surrounded by the Sonoran Desert. The McDowell Mountains (which can be seen in the picture above) act as the perfect backdrop to frame this property.
Despite its size the resort gives off an intimate feeling thanks to many cozy seating and lounge areas.
Make sure to spend some time exploring the grounds, which are filled with palm trees, cacti, interesting works of art, unique architecture, waterways and pools.
2. Relax, Refresh and Feel Rejuvenated at Spa Avania
Spa Avania is a luxurious oasis located right at the resort. They offer personalized treatments, a mineral pool, relaxing lotus pond, full service salon, and a variety of delicious food options. The spa even has a deluxe fitness center where you can join in on one of the many exercise classes they offer.
I indulged in a Hydrafacial during my stay, which left my skin feeling clean, soft and instantly looking younger.
A favorite part of my spa experience here was hanging by the mineral pool, sipping a glass of wine and relaxing with my good friend.
3. Wine Me, Dine Me Culinary Experience at SWB
With 8 dining options to choose from plus room service at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa, there is a variety of food for every palate.
At SWB’s Wine Me, Dine Me, the chef will prepare a custom menu and serve a 4-course custom meal along with tequila and wine pairings. This is a delicious and unique culinary experience you won’t want your tastebuds to miss out on.
Even better was that our street corn was served in the cutest petite stoneware casserole dish.
4. Water Playground
The Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa doesn’t just have a pool or two, instead they have 10 swimming pools, 20 fountains, 45 waterfalls, and a 3-story high-speed waterslide to enjoy during your stay.
With so many areas to swim, play, and cool off from the Arizona heat, you could easily spend your vacation exploring a new pool each day.
5. Gondola Boat Rides
Want to see the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa in a different way?
How about in a handcrafted Italian Gondola while you are being serenaded by a classically trained singer?
Out of the 7 reasons Hyatt Regency Scottsdale is where you want to stay, I think this may top my list. You don’t need to go all the way to Italy, instead visit Phoenix so you can cruise the romantic waterways around the resort’s 7 acre lake.
I have already informed my husband that a Gondola ride here is how I would like to celebrate my next birthday.
We are a family who often likes to travel with our two labradoodles, so I appreciate that the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale has a luxury pet friendly program.
7. Regency Club® rooms
Book a Regency Club® room, which is what I stayed in, and you will get to enjoy extra perks at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale.
Stop in for complimentary breakfast, snacks, drinks and evening hors d’oeuvres. I enjoyed a delicious breakfast here one morning along with a beautiful view of the peaceful lagoon area.
The Regency Club® is such a great option, especially if you are traveling with kids, so you can always have snacks and drinks available.
