There are few resorts that have the energy of the Four Seasons Scottsdale. Located in the high Sonoran Desert, tranquility awaits you as you escape to a place where you are surrounded by nature and your worries melt away. The resort has all the five star amenities you need but it also brings an authentic Western experience from its architecture and decor to its delicious food. Fashion designer Anne Bowen brought us to Arizona for a photo shoot and what better place to stay than the Four Seasons?

The exquisite lobby has vaulted wooden ceilings and rustic hanging chandeliers.

This award-winning destination features 210 guestrooms housed in villas placed throughout the property.

Western architecture was designed by HKS Architects. The style compliments the high Sonoran Desert, where the hotel is located.
