A new Andaz resort will begin welcoming guests on Nov. 1 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa is on 23 acres at the base of Camelback Mountain, less than two miles north of Old Town Scottsdale, and will offer 201 bungalow-style guest rooms that are organized into clusters of four to six units.

Highlights will include the Guest House, a social gathering place for guests and locals with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, a signature restaurant with a glass-box exhibition kitchen, and a large outdoor patio; the Turquoise Pool, with more than 150 chaise lounges and beds, 13 private cabanas and a pool bar; and the 12,000-square-foot Palo Verde Spa & Apothecary, which will have four indoor and three outdoor treatment rooms, outdoor hydrotherapy pools, a salon, a eucalyptus steam rooms, and a private pool.

For groups, the resort will feature 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space and more than 36,000 square feet of outdoor event space. The Retreat, a secluded cluster of 23 guest rooms surrounding a pool, also will offer event and outdoor dining areas.

"We are absolutely thrilled to prepare for the opening of this hotel and to introduce the Andaz brand to our Scottsdale community," said Scott Mason, the property's general manager. "This brand is all about connecting guests with the very best of local culture and immersing them in experiences that provide them with new perspective. From our thoughtful design to our food-and-beverage offerings, to our immersive guest experiences made possible with local partners, we know that guests who arrive a visitor will depart a local."
