The project currently under development at the SEC corner of the Loop 101 & Cardinals Way recently changed ownership & changes have been made to the size of the hotel. Vai Resort will now feature over 1,200 ‘luxury suites and hotel rooms’ making it the largest resort in all of Arizona.

“As most Arizona residents head out of state in the hot summer months, VAI Resort will bring the beach and refreshing water to their backyard,” said Grant Fisher, President of VAI Resort. “There will be no need to go anywhere else!”

Along with that, officials added that VAI Resort will also be the home of the first Mattel Adventures Park.

The resort project was previously announced as Crystal Lagoons before changing ownership and officials said the hotel is expected to bring 1,800 jobs to the city of Glendale.

Original completion dates were for late 2022, but these changes have pushed back an opening date into 2023.
