Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale is in the far northern part of Scottsdale, in the shadow of Pinnacle Peak. I love the desert there, with its rugged boulders and towering saguaros. The resort is a definite respite from the insane 24/7 world we live in today. The resort is a place of peace and tranquility.
The rooms at the Four Seasons Scottsdale are located in casitas scattered throughout the property. Each one is spacious and open, allowing the Arizona landscape to be a focal point for the room. My casita room looked out at Pinnacle Peak and the pool, with city lights in the distance. I could feel the desert when I was there — its warmth and the healing energy that drew me to Arizona in the first place.
Dinner at Talavera was a big part of my Four Seasons Scottsdale experience. Talavera is decorated to embrace the desert's color palette and the food gave me several “wow” moments. Even my husband, who prefers traditional, less adventurous meals, tried a few of the chef's more unique dishes and he's still talking about how great they were. He frequently suggests that we need to get back up to Talavera for dinner. That night's dinner was indeed magical. It was late spring and we sat on the patio. White night hawks flew under the lights around a flowering saguaro just off the patio. We were far enough from the city that a million stars brightened the sky overhead. It embodied all the reasons why I moved to the desert. Click here to read all about my dinner that night at Talavera.
My evening at Four Seasons Scottsdale was a night to remember. I enjoyed walking back from dinner along the dimly lit paths under the stars. My room, turned down and ready for me, was most welcoming. A lovely oasis in the Scottsdale desert.
