Dallas interior designer Paul Duesing imbues the indulgent modern spaces with a true sense of place. Paintings of saguaros and agaves adorn the walls in the bright, vibrant hues of a desert in full bloom. The lobby furniture is richly textured in sunset shades, exposed beams frame the ceiling, and touches of terra cotta add warmth.
Bed and Bath
Hand woven Huichol yarn art plays off creamy walls, furnishings upholstered in chic but rustic pattern mixes and, in some, soft adobe-style gas fireplaces. Small decks or patios face out into the desert, the perfect place to kick back with a sunset margarita. Bathrooms in soft terra cotta shades and stone tiles have deep tubs, separate showers and L’Occitane bath and body products.
Talavera, one of the best steakhouses in Scottsdale, turns out modern spins on classic beef and seafood pairings and has stunning patio views. Proof, an American canteen, serves comfort food like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and oyster po’boys, and chicken and waffles with bacon and bourbon syrup. The décor is all Wild West, with a railroad track running through the dining room. At poolside, Saguaro Blossom offers stunning views of Troon Mountain and Pinnacle Peak. Bliss out there or in the spa over a Sedona earth clay body mask or a golfers’ massage.
In the Area
The Four Seasons resort is adjacent to Pinnacle Peak Park and near the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. McDowell is ideal for outdoorsy types who want to mountain bike, hike and rock climb. Arizona Outback Adventures can help with planning. Greasewood Flat, a 130 year old quirky Wild West watering hole, is worth a visit. For shopping and dining, stroll through Scottsdale Quarter, and try health guru Dr. Andrew Weil’s True Food Kitchen. Fans of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work must visit Taliesin West. Old Town Scottsdale’s Thursday night ArtWalk sells local artists work – with free wine.
How to Get There
What sets this place apart is its apparent seamlessness into the astounding desert landscape. If I'm traveling across the country to be in the desert, I want to be among adobe walls, beautiful flowering cacti, wildlife, as well as an oasis, i.e., a beautiful pool-- as opposed to lawns and flashy architecture. We stayed in a large room with a patio view of Pinnacle Peak in the background and beautifully landscaped desert in the foreground; birds constantly flitting and chirping and occasionally saw a cottontail rabbit. To me this is what a luxury travel stay is--you're very pampered with a beautiful room, excellent staff, great food etc., but you definitely know where you are on the planet, and everywhere you look confirms it. You are elsewhere, and the view is glorious.
Equal to the beautiful surroundings was the caliber of the staff throughout. A special shout out to Koffi, who was such a gentleman whenever I asked for a golf cart to and from the kids' club.
Great activities to consider: Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesen West, horseback riding through the desert and tennis with the ever so consistent ball machine and ball-picker-upper! All the above is doable in August/105*+ if you stay super hydrated, as in, tennis is possible with a wet shirt on ;) For a day/night in, you can access your own Netflix account.
Four seasons service never disappoints, from room service to custom cocktails at the bar every employee we encountered were all inquiring what else they could do for us. The tranquility here was amazing, I wish I would have spent time at the pool but it was really hot out.
Stayed at this property several times for business and golf outings. My wife would never pass up a trip that includes a Four Seasons property. The food and service are all top drawer. The rooms are well appointed providing for a real treat in the Arizona desert. Then there's the golf course... second to none. Hope to be back soon!
