Due to its abundance of jobs, year-round sunny weather, and array of high-end amenities, Phoenix, Arizona, has become one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. In the past few years, people have been flocking to this desert region because it boasts all of the hottest attractions of a major metropolis—endless entertainment options, spacious homes and proximity to breathtaking nature.

Centering wellness and an atmosphere of rejuvenation, this ambitious project is the brainchild of acclaimed restauranteur Sam Fox, whose talent for creating world-class dining experiences has wowed patrons everywhere.
