VAI Resort, a $1 billion, 60-acre property in Phoenix, Arizona, is set to open in 2024.

The new-build resort will include four towers with more than 1,100 rooms, the VAI music and entertainment venue featuring a $40 million state-of-the-art stage, 12 signature restaurants, 10 exclusive bars and lounges, Konos Island and Beach Oasis, a luxury spa, a nightclub venue, rides, curated retail, art installations and more. The development of the resort is being led by 27-year-old hospitality entrepreneur Grant Fisher and the VAI Global Development team.

“Travelling has always been a passion of mine, and it’s what inspired me to dream big. VAI Resort was born from my experiences exploring different parts of the world and wanting to bring this global perspective to my backyard,” said Fisher, who is an Arizona native.

Currently under construction, the resort is located in Glendale, part of Metro Phoenix. It is just south of State Farm Stadium, home of the National Football League’s Arizona Cardinals.

Expected to be the largest resort in the state when complete, it will offer several unique experiences. For example, the 160 guestrooms in its “Muse” Tower  will have private balconies overlooking the resort’s multi-level, multi-functional live music and concert venue, giving the tower’s guests some of the best seats in the house for live events.

At 52,000 square feet, Konos Island will be the largest man-made party island in the United States. Amenities on the island will include a restaurant, private cabanas, DJ booth, and a 16-person aerial bar that will allow guests to sip cocktails and enjoy panoramic views from 130 feet in the sky. The island will be surrounded by a five-acre swimming oasis and temperature-controlled white sand beaches.

VAI Resort will also be home to the world’s first Mattel Adventure Park™.

“Our mission is to redefine the luxury hospitality experience while incorporating the thrill of live entertainment,” explained Fisher. “VAI is a one-of-a-kind destination set to exceed all expectation and leave a lasting impression on our guests.”
