Arizona is set to welcome its largest hotel to date this year in Glendale – VAI Resort.

Considered a desert oasis and situated on a man-made island, VAI offers 1,100 rooms across four hotel towers, a six-acre swimming pool, private cabanas, white sand beaches, 10 bars, 13 deluxe restaurants and a shopping corridor. It’s also associated with Mattel Adventure Park, opening this year in Glendale as the first-ever Mattel-branded theme park. Here, guests of all ages can join Barbie at the Barbie Beach House, go go-karting at the Hot Wheels track and ride the Hot Wheels Boneshaker rollercoaster.

And opening in late 2024 following a US$110 renovation will be the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch, which will be rebranded as the Grand Hyatt Scottsdale Resort & Spa, making it the first Grand Hyatt property in Arizona.
