 “VHR has a sterling reputation as a leading hospitality owner and operator and an ideal partner for the historic redevelopment of an iconic Arizona resort property,” said Taylor Robinson, a Partner with Geneva Holdings. “As we expand our portfolio to include hotel and resort development, it was key to align with a partner with the kind of visionary insight and operations experience that will help shape our hospitality properties into one-of-a-kind destinations,” he said.

After building nearly 7,500 homes, from luxury master-planned developments to custom estates, Geneva Holdings has established a trusted reputation for those who embrace an elevated lifestyle. A visionary real estate developer and investment firm renowned for its landmark properties, which includes the master plan community of the Arizona Biltmore, Geneva Holdings has risen to be one of the most prominent names in real estate development in Arizona and across the southwest. For over 40 years, Geneva Holdings has built a diverse portfolio of luxury properties including master-planned communities, commercial properties, multi-use projects and retail developments.

Extensive experience allows the company to consistently produce and manage developments that contribute to long-term investment value and successful outcomes.

The collaboration between Geneva Holdings and VHR for hotel and resort development will deliver a new landmark property that celebrates the iconic legacy of the property’s historic past to deliver a new one-of-a-kind destination experience.

“We are thrilled to partner with Geneva Holdings to usher in a new class of luxury hospitality in Arizona,” said Jason Walton, Founder and President of Ventana Hotels and Resorts. “The boutique resort format of this property will celebrate the history and heritage of its geographic location with amenities designed for luxury visitors looking for an exceptional and unique boutique resort experience, he said.
