“It’s today, all of yesterday dropped away,” reads the fist line from one of the poems in the Love Sonnet book in your room at the Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon. And when you reserve one of the “Seasons of Love” packages at the five-star resort, you’ll feel all your cares melt away and your romance renewed.
From now until the end of the month, the Four Seasons Troon is taking its key from the Scottsdale heat and helping guests put the sizzle back into their love life.
The “Pillow Talk”package includes a standard casita in a new adults-only building. The oversized room features a sitting area, private balcony or patio, gas-burning fireplace and large soaking tub. Upon arrival the mood will be set with Aphrodite’s Love Potion. Mix together the pre-measured ingredients to concoct a tasty libation that will have your sweetie swooning.
The rest of the evening is up to you Casanova, but the Four Seasons is there to act as your wing man. Romance always happens under the stars so try the Celestial Picnic for an al fresco dinner. Grab your girl and trek up the adjacent Pinnacle Peak trail, and at the top enjoy a customizable picnic basket prepared by Executive Chef Mel Mecinas. A blanket and constellation chart are included for your star gazing pleasure. The experience can be further enhanced with a musician, personal butler or professional astronomer.
If food is the way to your paramour’s heart, then Talavera is the perfect recipe. The fine-dining experience features a wide array of meat, game and seafood dishes prepared in a scorching 2500 degree oven. There is an emphasis on locavore dining with ingredients like Sunizona heirloom tomatoes and black mesa feta sourced from local purveyors.
Perhaps the evening might end with a soak in the oversized tub with the provided bath bombes as you wax poetic from the love sonnet book, or with a midnight swim in the recently remodeled pool.
If you booked the Pillow Talk package, morning begins with your choice of the Do Not Disturb or Rage on Through rituals. The Do Not Disturb breakfast in bed offers sumptuous early morning temptations like Carmelia Chocolate Pancakes or the decadent Lobster, Asparagus and Mascarpone scrambled eggs with brioche paired with your choice of early morning adult beverages like the Prickly Pear Cava Fresca. For those who need a kick in the pants to revive from the prior evening, the Rage on Through serves up a Bloody Mary bar and offerings like the steak and egg quesadilla or breakfast burrito.
If you upgraded the Pillow Talk package to the Couples Awakening, morning starts with the Sunrise Serenity duo massage. This 40-minute couples rub-down is offered between 7-8 am. in an outdoor cabana.
Both packages are available until August 31, 2011. The Pillow Talk is $159 and the Couples Awakening is $369 ($444 with breakfast). They can be booked by calling 1-888-207-9696 or online.
