DALLAS—Omni Hotels and Resorts and KSL Capital Partners, a leading private equity firm, announced the closing of the purchase and sale of the Montelucia Resort and Spa. The resort will be reflagged under the Omni brand as the Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia, extending the Omni’s Resort Collection in the Western United States. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
The Montelucia Resort and Spa is a luxury Scottsdale hotel that features 253 guestrooms, 38 suites, and two presidential suites. The property’s architecture is inspired by the rich history, white-washed villages, and sun-drenched hills of Spain’s Andalusia region. The destination also includes the award-winning Moroccan inspired Joya Spa, three resort pools, and five dining options including the critically acclaimed restaurant, Prado.
“The Montelucia is an exquisite addition to our collection of high-end resort properties,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels and Resorts. “The property is a top attraction for guests seeking a blend of gracious hospitality, personalized service and innovative cuisine. We are proud to add this incredible resort to our expanding Resort Collection.”
The resort is the sixth property Omni has acquired from KSL Capital Partners. Last July, Omni acquired five resorts from the firm, including the Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa in Austin, Texas; Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif.; Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif.; The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C.; and The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Va.
