Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale

Set on a gentle rise in the shadow of the 2,900-foot Pinnacle Peak, the clay-colored casitas of the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North blend in seamlessly with the Sonoran Desert landscape. Notably absent from view are roads, parking lots, and automobiles. When the more conspicuous sun makes its presence known, guests stay cool in the resort’s 6,000-square-foot free-form pool (divided into adults-only and family sections) or with a house-made sorbet from the poolside restaurant, Saguaro Blossom. Accommodations The 210 rooms and suites have gas fireplaces and either desert or pool views. The McDowell, Oasis, and Kiva suites feature private plunge pools. Recreation The Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish courses at the Troon North Golf Club are five minutes away. Dining Dinners indoors or out at Acacia, where new chef Meliton Mecinas prepares steaks and game. Worthy Diversion Browse the portraits of Native Americans at the resort’s gallery, which features original works by painters C.J. Wells and Kevin Red Star. Rates From $525 to $5,000 in the high season (winter); from $195 to $2,650 in the low season (summer).
