Construction of Luxury Villas Included in $52 Million Renovation


PHOENIX, Ariz. (May, 2008) - Unique ownership opportunities are available at Arizona Grand Resort, which just announced the construction of 52 new one- and two-bedroom luxury Arizona Grand Villas.  Plans for the Villas are part of the $52 million renovation which encompasses everything from the guest suites to the golf course.

The Arizona Grand Villas will be situated in the heart of the 164-acre resort.  Each spacious unit offers golf, city or mountain views.  In addition, all Villas are fully furnished and feature large walk-in closets; custom cabinets; designer countertops; premium appliances, including washer and dryer; breakfast bar; flat screen TV's; wireless Internet; private balconies; and even dishes, utensils and glassware.

"These Villas add yet another exceptional dimension to what we consider our unprecedented revitalization, which will broaden our appeal to leisure and business travelers, as well as local residents," said Arizona Grand Resort Managing Director Richard Behr. "The chance for ownership within the resort, as we take it to its highest level of excellence to date, is something few will want to pass up."

The Villas will be available as guest suites or for purchase as a second home. Owners will enjoy the benefits of a Villa Platinum Club Membership which provides full use of the resort facilities and amenities, including the award-winning Oasis Water Park, as well as discounts on golf, spa and dining.  Also,  the Villas' "backyard" happens to be the spectacular South Mountain Preserve, the largest city park in the world, comprising nearly 17,000 acres and approximately 60 miles of desert hiking and horseback riding trails.

The resort's three-phase renovation process began in 2007 with exterior and landscaping enhancements, a new property lighting concept as well as guest suite enhancements.  Total renovations, scheduled for completion in 2009, will include all 640 guest suites, restaurants, spa, a redesigned golf course and a brand new resort lobby complete with specialty restaurant and bar.
