Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, Scottsdale, Ariz.

The hike through cactus fields and balanced-rock formations to the top of Pinnacle Peak is a must for every guest at the adjacent Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. Equally essential is a round on the nearby Pinnacle Course, one of two Tom Weiskopf designs at Troon North Golf Club. Back at the resort itself, guests enjoy a full-service spa and salon, a children’s club, two tennis courts, and a series of swimming pools tucked into a sunny pocket between boulder-strewn hills. The property encompasses 188 guest rooms and 22 suites, including the 3,000-square-foot Pinnacle Suite, with three bedrooms, four fireplaces, and ample indoor-outdoor space for entertaining. Scottsdale’s many sites and seasonal events—from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West to the annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show (the largest show of its kind in the world)—offer a variety of cultural diversions. For more local flavor, try executive chef Mel Mecinas’s heirloom tomatoes and Arizona ranch–raised buffalo tenderloin at the Four Seasons’ Talavera restaurant. ($175–$5,900) www.fourseasons.com
