Travel Inspiration: FOUR SEASONS Scottsdale at Troon North

Equally spectacular in daylight.

If you have followed my lovely journey,

you may remember

I was a bit of a

spa-hopper this spring.

The maiden spa hopping voyage

of this HiGh aNXiety type

was truly an adventure in wellness!

My mission:

experience today’s best of the best spas

and assess their ability to deliver effective

and lingering rejuvenation.

Yes. I hit the road in my little waffle weave robe

 and slippers just for YOU (okay, and me).

And I discovered

the suprisingly unpretentious

and earth friendly Spa at

F O U R  S E A S O N S  R E S O R T

S C O T T S D A L E

to be a true oasis.


A treatment featuring radiant gold.

Four Seasons Resort
is light years

away from all hustle and bustle,
and I’m not sure what I expected,
but the architecture is as
divine as the natural beauty
surrounding the property.

High in the Sonoran Desert, the resort rests

in the cooling foothills of Pinnacle Peak.

 


A treatment room.

The resort’s Southwestern-style casitas,

vistas, and attention to detail provide

an ideal backdrop for relaxation and renewal.

Saguaro Blossom Restaurant

Before our treatments, we enjoyed

a delicious poolside lunch at

Saguaro Blossom.

Relaxation areas at the spa are decorated

casually with a Southwest motif.

While the decor is decidedly laid back,

from the moment my companion and I
were greeted by the concierge,
the treatment was royal.

My companion experienced a

FIRMING COLLAGEN

anti-ageing facial.

This 80-minute treatment combats
wrinkles and skin slackening and involves
Hungarian facial massage to stimulate circulation.

A botanical collagen mask left her

skin soft, supple, and healthier than ever. 

My Four Seasons ecstasy du jour
was the signature

HEALING HIKER’S

full body massage.

Shhhhhh.

On this trip I was a Fashion Square hiker,
not a Pinnacle Peak one.
As much as I adore becoming
‘one with nature’ it was necessary
to assist my companion with shoe shopping.

80 minutes of attentive therapy
incorporated mountain arnica and sage

(to ease inflammation and soreness).

Special attention is paid to legs

to help rejuvenate tired muscles.

Floated on air lately?

Experienced tension released from every muscle

to a degree you suspect voodoo?

Ah…then you understand perfectly how we departed

FOUR SEASONS RESORT SCOTTSDALE
at TROON NORTH.

I will definitely return to soak up
Four Seasons warmth and hospitality again
and encourage you to explore Scottsdale.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Michele… I'm jealous! LOL I'm joking! I'm actually happy you're taking care of yourself because you deserve it!

    I love seeing your posts about spas. So interesting!

    Have a Blessed Day!

    That's it! I am so going with you! My tired legs and wrinkly face (not to mention the turkey neck…) are in need of some attention. And the places you pick seem so good for the soul and the heart as well. What a setting, Michele! No wonder you always seem so content and relaxed!

    Warm hugs

    P.S I swear – every time I write about dear blog friends my readers go quiet on me. I obviously can't have any favorites! (:
