Fireworks, Families And Fun: Splish Splash Into Summer At The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A summer day at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess starts with a cool ride down a waterslide and ends with spectacular fireworks in the evening. Named "2012 Best Staycation for Families" by the Arizona Republic, this is a playground for kids and adults alike, splashed with sensational savings.
Pools are lined by shady cabanas with all the luxuries, with "Dive In" movies and the new Techno Waterslides taking center stage weekend nights. Youngsters also love an adventure at Bobcat Billy's Clubhouse, while kids of any age shoot hoops on the sport court, cast a reel for bluegill at the lagoons or roast marshmallows at the camp fire. Nature walks, Willow Stream Spa, golf at the TPC Scottsdale, tennis and award-winning cuisine round out a picture-postcard day.
As the sun sets at the Princess, fireworks light up the sky every Saturday night, Memorial Day - Labor Day. The celebration crescendos during Fairmont's Fourth of July Freedom Fest, June 30 – July 3, with all-American picnics, concerts, Uncle Sam and salutes to the military. Labor Day ends summer with a "Dreamcation" weekend, with concerts and festivities, August 31-September 3. Every week in between, the resort has activities for the entire family.
Sonoran Splash, the resort's 6,000 square-foot water oasis, is perfect for families, with two twisting waterslides, pop-jets and games such as giant bubble making, wooden turtle races, volleyball and underwater bingo, while pool butlers bring guests chilled towels and frozen grapes.
The resort's mascot "Bobcat Billy" invites little "cubs" to pan for real gold, go on photo safaris, learn to solar cook, swim and even meet a reptilian friend or two, discovering something new about Arizona each day.
Grown-ups have fun of their own with the Fairmont Scottsdale's "Passion Project," a collection of enriching experiences including tequila tastings at La Hacienda, Kobe beef tastings at Bourbon Steak, succulent cactus garden making classes, cardio tennis, create-your-own fragrance at the spa and art classes.
The resort's "Playcation Family Package," starts at $179 per night and includes two kid's resort dining passes, two full-day passes for Bobcat Billy's Clubhouse for kids (ages 5-12), court time at the Tennis Center, access for two adults to Willow Stream Spa, complimentary self-parking and a guaranteed adjacent room at 50 percent off (without the added benefits).
