FireSky Resort and Spa, a Kimpton Hotel, in Arizona

A short distance from Sky Harbor Airport with an easy transfer, one immediately relaxes walking into this resort located at 4925 N. Scottsdale Road. This resort is accessible to boutique shops in Old Town Scottsdale, the new Fashion Square shopping, hiking, golfing, hot culinary scene, and art galleries.

FireSky Resort & Spa is a favorite with its mixed atmosphere of modern, special magnetic charm, friendliness, and luxury to re-energize at this oasis.

A story is revealed of the organic architecture and earth elements similar to what Frank Lloyd Wright believed. The Kimpton Hotel philosophy blends with FireSky Resort & Spa appealing to all ages, kids to retirees, enjoying vacation and business trips.

An essential item is the enthusiastic people working throughout the property with friendly, upbeat hospitality. Whether guests are making reservations for dinner or cars, asking directions, using the complimentary hotel shuttle to go into Old Town Scottsdale to see art galleries, or tour attractions like Wright’s Taliesin West, FireSky employees simply ensure guests are at ease.

The employees help create the guest’s positive mood. No wonder the FireSky Resort & Spa was voted one of five Valley companies as the ‘Best Place to Work’ based on surveys from the Phoenix Business Journal’s 2008 competition. If an amenity is not already included at FireSky Resort, it soon will be.

FireSky Resort & Spa Story

A quote from Frank Lloyd Wright, “Organic buildings are the strength and lightness of the spiders’ spinning, buildings qualified by light, bred by native character to environment, married to the ground.”

Guests do use all five senses for affects of five earth elements at FireSky Resort & Spa which are continually in use throughout this resort producing their official mission:

“The story of FireSky Hotel & Spa is The Elements. In a brilliant fusion of fire, air, water & earth, FireSky Hotel & Spa offers guests a chance to experience a magical and dynamic play between the classical elements. From majestic fire columns, transparent curtains flowing in the breeze, inviting pools and waterfalls, and verdant landscaped grounds, a stay at the resort is one of ‘elemental’ elegance.”

FireSky Resort & Spa Living Room

Beginning with a hearty greeting from Guest Services, visitors walk into the spacous “living room,” where they check in and may even be greeted by the Director of Pet Relations, Bosco, a gracious chocolate colored cocker spaniel, hired to promote pet friendly relations. When Bosco is not at reception, he is often seen on frequent walks throughout the resort.

This is a perfect place for the Kimpton Hotel “hosted evening wine receptions.” FireSky Hosts invite guests for complimentary glasses of wine to their living room around the stone fireplace with lighted fires every evening.

The up to date Wright style furniture is comfortable to sit in and to have engaging fun conversations with other people. This room has a mix of warm orange and yellow colors with light wood and stone for a calming mood setting.

Walking through this room, guests see the Concierge Desk and Gift Shop, where they may reserve fun things to do. Banquet/meeting rooms are also found in this area. Guests will see the Taggia Bar, which is an open gathering area, and Taggia Restaurant entrance. The bar area spills out onto a patio where people may relax and nibble on tasty appetizers. The center attraction is the tropical oasis of pools and gardens with the 196 guest rooms and 8 suites surrounding this oasis.

There are two large heated pools; one is a sandy beach lagoon, a hot tub, and several cabanas for lounging with an Aqua Bar, and even a lawn area for Yoga classes, weddings, and group dinners. Guests may sit back and relax; and even enjoy roasting marshmallows in secluded areas with fire pits during evenings.

FireSky Resort Guest Rooms

The spacious rooms with large screen televisions, very comfortable beds, and private patios or balconies, have personal touches which immediately put guests at ease like pet goldfish and adding outlets in the base of lamps on the bedside table so one does not have to search to plug in electronic chargers. Of course, an eight hundred square foot Presidential Suite with luxurious furnishings adds to this experience. After a day of spa treatments and poolside relaxing, instant sleep comes listening to the soothing jazz music left by the personal room consultant.

Guests may request The Kimpton Hotel “tall” rooms if they need to. FireSky Resort is eco-friendly throughout the resort with items like cleaning supplies, organic snacks in the honor bar, and towels/linens service. A fully equipped exercise room is available on the property.

Taggia Culinary Dining and Jurlique Spa

Taggia Restaurant is a fun open-aired coastal Italian cuisine restaurant with a sunny (and moon lit) patio. A delicious breakfast and lunch is also available all day beginning at 6 a.m. daily along with room service.

Of course, the Jurlique Spa is conveniently located on site and has in-room services available with a selection of heavenly massages, facials, and water therapy treatments using certified organic and biodynamic herbs from their own herb farms.

FireSky Resort & Spa is one of the best choices of resort hotels conveniently located in the center of upscale Scottsdale, AZ for luxury vacations.
