Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch
This 27-acre desert oasis overlooking the McDowell Mountains is a water world. There's a lake with gondola rides manned by authentic serenading gondoliers, scores of fountains and waterfalls, and a 2.5-acre water park with ten swimming pools and a three-story waterslide that zips swimmers down at 25 miles per hour. The resort also includes 27 holes of golf, a brand new 28-foot rock climbing wall, and a Native American learning center with regular hoop-dancing performances. Dining options include Italian, Southwestern, and Japanese eateries. The on-site Spa Avania offers desert-inspired treatments and a French-Celtic mineral pool.
