From engaging and exciting outdoor adventures to inspiring creative experiences, activities at Andaz Scottsdale empower you to explore, chase, and discover. 

Take a mountain-biking tour through the desert, and then cool off with a quick kayak around Saguaro Lake. Learn to craft your own signature cocktails before a private dinner in our exhibition kitchen. Play golf at world-renowned courses, then relive your day with friends around the fire pits at sunset.

It’s all here, either on our 23 acres or just a short drive away. See each category below for more details, and be sure to check out our Event Calendars for a convenient listing of activities and experiences to discover at Andaz.
