After debuting 183 guest rooms last April, Mountain Shadows officially completed its $100 million project with the opening of a luxury wing that adds 41 fully furnished resort condominiums to the mix.
The property originally opened in 1959 and was rebuilt from the ground up to escalate the luxury offerings available in Paradise Valley, Ariz., situated at the foot of Camelback and Mummy mountains. While the condos located in the new three-story building are for sale, meeting planners can also arrange for high-end stays in one of the four penthouses or choose from the condos’ studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts.
Attendees in search of relaxation can retreat to The Citizens Club, a 4,000-sf high-tech wellness center, complete with two pools, cabanas and fitness programming such as Pilates and various types of yoga. Art is also highly regarded throughout the property, with geometric lighting and vintage artwork used in the guest rooms. The on-property Gallery space also features artist talks and rotating exhibitions every two months.
For meetings, the property features 37,500 sf of indoor and outdoor event space. That includes private dining at Hearth ’61, which serves seasonal American fare from—you may have guessed—the hearth, including dishes such as Moroccan spiced rack of lamb and Niman Ranch beef tenderloin. Lastly, golfers will be able to practice at The Short Course, Arizona’s only 18-hole, Par 3 golf course. Groups can even participate in putting challenges, a Nighttime Glow Putting Contest or a Closest-to-the-Pin Cocktail Reception on the first hole.
