Meeting Space Renovations 2023
Introducing a re-imagined collection of distinctive meeting and event space in fall 2023.
Curating the hand-crafted experience through service and design with a modern take on the Sonoran Desert, The Phoenician introduces Phase One of the re-imagined collection of distinctive function space for fall 2023.
Celebrating Sonoran culture and history through the use of authentic color palettes, original materials, patterns
and textures, its inspiration is found in the native peoples of the Southwest, as well as the region’s flora, fauna,
wildlife and topography. New, contemporary and indigenous aesthetics bring harmony to the area, complementing
the transformative nature of the iconic resort. Enveloped by the warm, abundant, natural light of its surroundings,
The Phoenician’s meeting and event offerings capture the essence of luxurious desert sophistication.
