HONOLULU– May 21, 2019 —Aqua-Aston Hospitality, a leading hotel and resort management group and an operating business of Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: VAC), is pleased to welcome CopperWynd Resort & Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, to its portfolio of nearly 40 properties. CopperWynd is the company’s first managed resort in Arizona.

The property is currently undergoing an extensive $60-million renovation and expansion, and following the development’s anticipated completion in 2020, CopperWynd will join the ranks of Autograph Collection Hotels. Marriott International’s Autograph Collection celebrates individuality and independence by curating one-of-a-kind travel experiences at luxury lifestyle hotels in the world’s most desirable destinations. Each hotel is hand-selected for its memorable guest experience, bold originality, rich character, and uncommon details.

“When CopperWynd completes its transformation from a once-renowned tennis resort to an Autograph Collection Hotel, we expect to set a new signature standard for resorts in the Scottsdale area,” said Denis Ebrill, managing director, Aqua-Aston Hospitality. “We look forward to offering our expertise by creating an experience that connects guests to the environment, local community, and culture, while also delivering extensive hospitality management services.”

Located on a mountaintop outside the bustle of downtown Scottsdale, CopperWynd is about a 30-minute drive from the Phoenix airport. The resort offers breathtaking views of Fountain Hills and the Four Peaks Wilderness Area, easy access to several championship golf courses and incredible nature trails, and a convivial food scene. The on-site restaurant, Flourish, serves healthy meals made with locally-sourced ingredients and is the recipient of the OpenTable Diners’ Choice awards for “Best Ambience, Most Romantic” and “Best Scenic View.”

With a focus on health and wellness, the resort also offers an attractive set of upscale facilities, from a 26,000-square-foot lobby and restaurant, to a full-service spa, and an extensive fitness center that has yoga and spinning studios, two swimming pools and a lighted tennis court. Each of the 32 guest rooms features 450-square-feet of space, including a private terrace, plush bedding, a warm gas fireplace, a HD TV, and a spacious bathroom with an oversized bathtub and separate shower.

Minimal disruption is expected as part of the renovation process, and the resort remains open for guests to enjoy all of its amenities.
