Signature Four Seasons luxury in a soothing desert setting.
One of upscale Scottsdale's most exclusive resorts, the Four Seasons takes it over the top with this luxury property. Adobe casitas, set amid a rugged landscape at the base of Pinnacle Peak, perfectly capture a southwestern mindset with hand-crafted décor, gas-burning fireplaces and private terraces. Views from the casitas include massive boulders poised on saguaro-studded hillsides and vistas of distant mountains. Private plunge pools or garden showers are available in the suites. Golfers rave about the two 18-hole courses at adjacent Troon North; rounding out the recreational offerings are a pair of pools and four tennis courts. Among the resort's dining venues is the upscale Talavera, specializing in steakhouse cuisine influenced by the regional flavors of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, and Proof, an American regional luxury “canteen.” For business travelers, extensive services include audio-visual equipment, fax machines, Japanese language/translation services and over 10,000 square feet of meeting space, featuring the 5,630-square-foot Ironwood Ballroom, two outdoor function lawns and three executive boardrooms. A full-service spa pampers with treatments such as Desert Nectar Facials and Moonlight Massage. On an artsy note, a partnership with The Trail of the Painted Ponies exhibition includes special events and one of the original pony sculptures on display at the resort.
