To Rebrand as the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia

January 07, 2014 - DALLAS - Omni Hotels & Resorts and KSL Capital Partners, LLC, a leading private equity firm, today announced the closing of the purchase and sale of the Montelucia Resort & Spa. The resort will be reflagged under the Omni brand as the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia, extending the Omni’s Resort Collection in the Western United States. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

The Montelucia Resort & Spa is a top-rated luxury Scottsdale hotel that features 253 luxuriously appointed guestrooms, 38 suites and two presidential suites. The property’s distinctive architecture is inspired by the rich history, white-washed villages and sun-drenched hills of Spain’s Andalusia region. The enchanting destination also includes the award-winning Moroccan inspired Joya Spa, three resort pools and five tempting dining options including the critically acclaimed restaurant, Prado. Nestled at the foot of the picturesque Camelback Mountain in the exclusive enclave of Paradise Valley, and adjacent to the cities of Phoenix and Scottsdale, this extraordinary resort’s premier location offers easy access to golf, recreation, nightlife and entertainment. 

“The Montelucia is an exquisite addition to our already impressive collection of high-end resort properties,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “The property is a top attraction for guests seeking a blend of gracious hospitality, personalized service and innovative cuisine. We are proud to add this incredible resort to our expanding Resort Collection.” 

The resort is the sixth property Omni has acquired from KSL Capital Partners, LLC. Last July, Omni acquired five iconic resorts from KSL Capital Partners, LLC, including the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas; Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, Calif.; Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif.; The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C.; and The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Va.
