Trish Hayes

Managing Spa Director

Trish brings more than 30 years of diverse experience within the luxury resort and spa management industry. Beginning her journey in 1992 in Ireland, she explored various roles throughout the years and moved to different hotels before realizing her love for spas in the beautiful Sonoran Desert.

In 2010, she became the Operations Manager for Well & Being Spa at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess before deciding to give the hotel side another chance as she transitioned to Director of Hotel Operations MGM Resorts International in Las Vegas for a few years.

Yearning for the chance to go back to spa life, she made the switch back in Nevada before making her way back to Arizona. It is with great pleasure to have Trish join us once again as the Director of Well & Being Spa here at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess.
