Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) January 7, 2009
Scottsdale Cottonwoods Resort and Suites is a classic Arizona retreat, complete with hammocks hung from tree to tree, expansive green lawn areas with abundant foliage, cactus gardens, views of the famous Camelback Mountain and the fabulous red, orange and purple sunsets to embrace. Walking around the 25-acre resort, bunnies hopping about and birds singing along, its easy to feel like you've found a place to relax…to breathe…to escape.
The surprising part of Scottsdale Cottonwoods Resort and Suites, locoated at 6160 N. Scottsdale Road, is that it is in the heart of Scottsdale, steps away from world-class shopping, dining and entertainment. It truly is the best of both worlds. The peace and serenity, feeling like you're hiding away, yet within walking distance of more shops and restaurants than one could sample during a fun-filled vacation, let alone a lifetime!
The accommodations are all casitas - Spanish for small homes, which are southwestern in style, single story retreats. The majority of the 171 casitas are suites with a private whirlpool spa on a private enclosed patio for maximum solitude. Some also include a full kitchen and kiva fireplace. These larger suites are ideal for longer term stays, especially to enjoy the inviting Arizona winter. Oh, and the beds! Plush pillow top mattresses with fresh bedding make it easy to fall asleep at night. These enchanting cottages are a delight.
Greet the morning with a quick run on the onsite walking/running path and par course that encircles the property. This path is a beautiful amenity and a lesson in Arizona vegetation, as many of the plants are identified by both their scientific botanical labels as well as their common names. Guests also enjoy the two tranquil blue swimming pools, sparking with the desert sun; and the tennis courts and putting green. With an average of 325 days of sunshine annually, outdoor activities prevail!
If you're lucky, you might even see a shooting star in the night's sky as you wander back to your casita after a lovely dinner at the resort and a full-day of whatever inspires you most. The concierge team is well adept at arranging everything from spa appointments, to Sonoran desert experiences, trail horse rides, hot air balloon rides, Hummer excursions, romantic surprises- whatever the guest wants.
On site guests and visitors can enjoy the Moriah Restaurant and Chef Charles Steppe, who owned a restaurant in Westchester County New York for many years, is heading up the kitchen and is driven by a passion in the culinary arts. "I look at food as a painter looks at his paints. I get to create pictures with flavors, color and texture, he said."
