Looking to beat the Texas heat with a trip to a resort to relax poolside or maybe go skiing?
The Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale in Arizona or the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole in Wyoming offer plenty of options for summer fun.
Situated on 40 acres of desert blooms in the high Sonoran Desert, Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale offers a Southwestern retreat with 210 adobe-style casita guest rooms and suites.
Health and wellness programming options include the new desert bathing experience. The experience begins with intention setting, along with a mindfulness and grounding exercise. Guests then embark on a meditative zen hike, where they are encouraged to stop, breathe, and take in the beauty of nature. The desert bathing experience concludes at the spa with cooling, aromatherapy-scented towels, and a brief re-centering exercise.
“The idea for Desert Bathing came about as a way to invite our guests to spend more time in our natural setting, connecting with the outdoors and experiencing a true sense of place,” said Senior Spa Director Jaana Roth.
Additionally, special programming includes the soul and sound yoga series. While on property, guests will enjoy the complimentary Kids For All Seasons program, open daily for ages 5-15; adjacent championship golf at Troon North Golf Club; a full-service Spa and Fitness Center, offering many desert-inspired treatments; the two-tier, saltwater pool complex, including a family and adult pool; plentiful dining with Talavera, Proof, and Onyx; and weekly programming including hiking, spirit and wine tasting, and more.
For those interested in skiing, the Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole boasts views of the Teton Mountain range, celebrated ski runs, and an array of wildlife in nearby Grand Teton National Park.
Guests can fuel up with breakfast at Westbank Grill before hitting the trails for skiing, hiking, or biking, and then coming back for a soothing massage in the spa or soak in the year-round, heated pool.
Casual dining options include Michael Mina’s The Handle Bar and light bites in Ascent Lounge.
New for summer 2022, Four Seasons Resort Jackson will debut a full-scale renovation of its 158 guest rooms, suites, and resort residences. Summer also brings other adventures, including wildlife safaris, hiking, mountain biking, and climbing the Via Ferrata.
