Family fun and ultimate relaxation
Back in December of 1999, while some people were preparing their bunkers for Y2K, the Four Seasons was busy putting the final touches on its magnificent resort in the Pinnacle Peak area of the Valley of the Sun. The goal of the resort was to provide guests with top-notch service and luxury amenities.
“As with every Four Seasons property, the cornerstone of the brand is providing seamless, intuitive service,” says Kim Cole, director of public relations. “Guests can expect a relaxed environment, but with all the special touches that make an experience truly memorable. Summer is the perfect time to slow down, relax with your family and friends and enjoy the comfort and ease of a staycation.”
This level of quality has continued through the years. And though the temperatures soar through the summer season, the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North is still at it providing exceptional experiences to its guests. Whether it is during a couple’s romantic getaway or a fun-filled weekend with the family.
“Summer is the time of making memories and sharing stories that will last a lifetime,” says General Manager and Regional Vice President Vince Parrotta.
Recently, the resort started off its summer with a healthy bang by celebrating Global Wellness Day. The annual wellness day focused on the importance of staying healthy and maintaining wellness.
“Living well is all about balance,” says Lia Rowland, spa director. “Global Wellness Day provides a great reminder to recharge, reconnect and take time to instill and support those overall wellness efforts.”
The weekend started June 10 with guests indulging in healthy foods like superfood salads and heart-healthy power bowls. Guests were greeted with farmer’s market themed welcome amenities and health-conscious poolside treats, like kale peanut butter smoothies and fresh sliced watermelon. The weekend included two outdoor yoga classes and spa treatments. The Four Seasons restaurant Talavera paired with Kale & Clover to offer a four-course menu with optional organic wine pairings.
It’s a Family Affair
Summertime means the kids are out of school and ready to play. The resort’s complimentary “Kids For All Seasons” program, open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, features a variety of programming for the entire family. These activity-filled days include complimentary cabanas, smoothie samples, and fruit kebabs. Other activities include dive-in movies, which run every Saturday night at the pool and include a themed buffet available at an additional cost. Take in the resort’s scenic views of the Valley and complimentary astronomer-led stargazing every Thursday night.
Tending to the Barre
The resort also has many fitness options for those who like to move. A Day at the Barre is a specialty barre class in the Movement Studio, which includes a 25-minute spa service, as well as access to the pool for the day and a complimentary specialty cocktail. The day begins at 1 p.m. with a revitalizing barre fitness class and is followed by a choice of a 25-minute spa service, like the Willow Herbal Wrap, Scalp Express, or Sole Satisfaction. The Day at the Barre is offered on July 16 and August 20 for $129. If total relaxation is the name of your game, take a load off at The Spa. Spa Happy Hour is available from 3 to 7 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday and offers specially-priced treatments. Choose two 25-minute treatments for $139 or three treatments for $179.
All this talk of activity probably has your stomach grumbling. Four Seasons has many options to fill your belly and quench your thirst. Talavera offers their steakhouse cuisine Thursday through Sunday from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. and features guest chefs from local restaurants during its Monthly Mashup series.
During “Ice Cream Days of Summer,” everyone can enjoy an old-fashioned ice cream social at Proof, an American canteen. The social includes a 50 percent savings on all frozen treats at the soda jerk station. Proof also hosts the popular Backyard Barbecue series every Friday night, which features specialty bourbon and barrel-aged cocktails.
Friday and Saturday evenings, adults can take in the spectacular views while enjoying live music and happy hour at Onyx Bar & Lounge. Also available for the 21 and over crowd are beer and wine tastings, and margarita demonstrations.
