Limited Collection of Ascent at The Phoenician® Golf Villas Available Now
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA – October 30, 2020 – Replay Destinations (‘Replay’) announced today that it has
acquired real estate development parcels at The Phoenician®, a Luxury Collection Resort in Scottsdale,
Arizona. The planned private residential community will sit at the foot of Camelback Mountain, overlooking the
Phoenician® Golf Club. Known as Ascent at The Phoenician®, the project will become a true legacy property
in one of Arizona’s most celebrated locations. Replay has acquired the development parcels from affiliates of
Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (‘Host’), owner of The Phoenician®, a Luxury Collection Resort, which is
consistently recognized as one of the world’s finest luxury resort destinations.
“Designed as a luxurious desert sanctuary in the heart of Scottsdale, Ascent at The Phoenician® will offer
buyers the rare opportunity to live at one of the region’s most prestigious addresses. At this time when home is
more important than ever, we have incorporated contemporary design, spacious indoor/outdoor living spaces,
and private entrances in a world-class location to enjoy the beautiful desert,” said Gary Raymond, Managing
Director, Replay Destinations.
Ascent at The Phoenician® will consist of approximately 195 properties, including condominiums at the base of
Camelback Mountain and Ascent Golf Villas along the first fairway of the Phoenician® Golf Club. A planned
private pool and fitness amenity tucked up against Camelback Mountain will be an intimate gathering place for
wellness, socializing and relaxation. With views overlooking the new Phoenician® Golf Club and Camelback
Mountain along with the city lights of Scottsdale, home designs will feature contemporary architecture
integrating warm, natural materials, expansive windows and large outdoor living areas. Residents will also have
a limited opportunity to join a Phoenician® Amenity Access Program that provides Ascent real estate owners
with access to resort amenities, including the pools and fitness facility, as well as preferred pricing for golf, spa,
food and beverage, and other services.
Reservations are now being accepted for the first release of luxury homes within the Ascent community – a
limited collection of 30 golf villa homes situated on the first fairway of the new Phoenician® Golf Club and
adjacent to the golf clubhouse and new Phoenician® Tavern Restaurant. Ranging from two bedrooms to three
bedroom and den/office plans, the homes will offer spacious indoor living transitioning to generous outdoor
living. Priced from $1,785,000, the Ascent Golf Villas offer private two-car garages with additional storage.
Generous outdoor living areas include spectacular upper level patio decks opening to views of the golf course
and Camelback Mountain. Priority reservations are being accepted via a formal Reservation Agreement along
with a $5,000 refundable deposit. Reservation holders will have the ability to select a home at pre-construction
pricing with final purchase contracts being written later this fall.

at The Phoenician®, a Luxury Collection Resort for this legacy project,” said Linda Laniado, Vice President of
