Relaxation is a big part of what we look for in a summer vacation. Pool, spa, golf & dining seem to keep everyone in the family happy! Our perfect solution – the Four Seasons Scottsdale, where there is ample opportunity for pool & spa time, but also very close proximity to numerous world-class golf courses. Just north of Scottsdale, the Four Seasons backs up to Pinnacle Peak and the views are incredible from all over the resort.
While the guys spent their days golfing, we spent our days taking yogalates & enjoying spa treatments, brunching at Proof, hiking Pinnacle Peak & of course spending the majority of our time by the pool. There is a quiet adult-only pool, and also a family pool with water toys & games for the kids. So whether you’re traveling as a couple or as a family, the Four Seasons is a great option, and a bonus for families – the Kids Club is free!
After our visit, we can’t imagine who wouldn’t want to getaway to the Four Seasons Scottsdale?! We’re so excited to partner with the resort to offer a two night stay, dinner for two & two 50 minute massages! It truly is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend. Here are our “musts”, the things you don’t want to miss while at the resort:
- Bloody Mary at Proof restaurant
- Renting a luxury cabana at the pool, complete with hi-def TV, ceiling fans, & fully stocked fridge
- The Hydrofacial at the Spa

We loved the Southwestern elegance of the resort as soon as we walked through the lobby doors. The indoor and outdoor lobbies are decorated in great bright prints and combinations of colors and fabrics – Southwest with a fun twist – we swooned!
The grounds are beautiful, filled with bright pops of color from flowering cacti and cascading bougainvillea.
The resort consists of ‘casitas’ which allow for privacy & balconies with a view from every room. A great place to have a quiet moment and reflect on God’s creation.
The perfect welcome – sangria & prosecco!
We hiked Pinnacle Peak our first morning at the resort before hitting the pool! Thankfully the temperatures were cooler than normal, because we didn’t get the early start that is recommended during the summer months. It was a great hike – straight out of the lobby, to the trail head, and up the mountain!
Pool time! Cabanas, misters and a pool boy to clean your sunglasses – what more can you ask for?! We settled in with some of our Summer Reading List and a cold cocktail from poolside Saguaro Blossom. The AZ Mai Tai wins points for presentation alone & tastes even better than it looks!
We enjoyed the comlimentary wine tasting in the afternoon at Talavera. It’s a great break from all the relaxing at the pool!
We had a fantastic dinner in the beautiful wine room at Talavera! Chef Mel takes a whole new spin on “surf & turf” throughout the menu with a strong emphasis on local purveyors. Fabulous food, perfect wine pairings & an atmosphere to die for. We loved it.
Breakfast/brunch at Proof is great! With so many menu options, from the Huevos Rancheros to the Egg White Frittata, there were choices for everyone in our group. The brewed coffee from local Press Coffee Roasters was so delicious – not to mention the Grapefruit Mimosa & Proof Bloody Mary!
We loved having the luxury cabana for a day! We watched the Wimbledon’s Mens Final and, like every day, we were treated like royalty by the Four Seasons staff. The menu selections we had poolside lived up to the Four Seasons standards. Our favorites were the Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus & Grilled Mexican Prawns, but everything we tried was delicious!
It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t show you what our guys did a lot while we were in Scottsdale! The resort is affiliated with the Troon North Golf Club just up the street and it gets rave reviews from the golfers in our family.
The resort is stunning at night!
Our last poolside margarita! It was so hard to pull ourselves away from the pool to pack and leave. Thanks for having us Four Seasons Scottsdale – we can’t wait to come back!
