(copy for page 1)

What better time than now to restore and renew the mind, body, and soul for the year ahead?

Both at its 44,000-square-foot Well & Being Spa and across the AAA Five Diamond resort itself, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is a mecca for pampering and wellness at the grandest of levels.

The property boasts six sparkling pools, each catering to a different set of needs. Sonoran Landing, which is solely for guests 21 and over and features oversized daybeds as well two 25-meter lanes for lap swimmers and personal servers, is of note as is Sunset Beach and its 9,000 square feet of soft white sand, which feels like a beach escape the heart of the desert. The signature Princess Pool, remodeled in recent years, is similarly sublime, thanks in great part to its massive hot tub, outdoor café, and sweeping views of the famed TPC Scottsdale golf courses.

Speaking of the TPC Scottsdale, though best known as the home to the WM Phoenix Open, the picturesque, challenging courses are also a must for those looking to move their bodies and strengthen their minds in the most epic of settings. The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess has a golf concierge to help book tee times, organize private lessons, create personalized clinics, and even help players decide on the best course – Champions or Stadium – for their skill level.

And whether at the pool or spas, do not miss the exclusive Well & Being cuisine, which was developed in partnership with a registered dietitian and the resort’s executive chef to ensure it tickles the tastebuds while nourishing the body.
