Everyone knows that the best part of vacation is the food! Experience the taste of Spain with Omni Scottsdale’s Spanish-inspired fare at Prado and Mbar. Should you want to indulge in dishes that reflect the agriculture of Arizona and Mexico, we recommend Taqueria Centro. Pick up a quick artisanal bite at Crave Cafe, enjoy a tropical cocktail while sunning yourself at the pool or nourish your body with a health-forward meal from Joya Terrace. And if you’re looking for a truly special way to highlight your trip, you can opt for private dining!


Jumping for Joya

Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale is truly an amazing experience for your mind, body and spirit. While the spa and salon offer standard treatments like massages, facials and hairstyling, there are truly luxurious items on the menu that you shouldn’t pass up. Highlights consist of the Hammam-inspired spa room, acupuncture, IV therapy and Healing Dreams. Spa visitors also have access to dining on Joya Terrace and enjoying the Joya Terrace pool. Check out the Summer of Spa specials available while you’re there, and indulge in a new desert repair treatment like the Paradise Peach Body Polish.

Trip Tip: Explore Old Town Scottsdale and experience the food scene like a local! Grab a Hangover Burger from Rehab Burger Therapy, satisfy your sweet tooth (and your Insta feed) with Sweet Dee’s Bakeshop, tap into a flight at Goldwater Brewing Company and dine al fresco at FnB.
