Best. Summer. Ever. #AtThePrincess

Ice cream cones and cannonballs, colorful sunglasses and ice-cold lemonade, sing-a-long songs, the unmistakable smell of suntan lotion, sandcastles and spending time with family: what is that one thing that instantly reminds you of summer?

This was the Best. Summer. Ever. at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. Our signature experiences included swimming with mermaids, quality family play time at Trailblazer’s Recreation Center, H2/Glow parties, Dive-in movies, fishing derbies, fireworks every Saturday night and so much more.

We captured the spirit of summer on social media with larger-than-life art installations, and tour the picturesque property with our Instagram Concierge to discover the perfect shot. The 2018 summer at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess served as the perfect backdrop for friends and families to make memories to last a lifetime.

With Arizona’s only white sand beach, six sparkling pools and two rip-roaring waterslides, luxurious guest rooms, award-winning restaurants, a world-class spa and championship golf…why staycation anywhere else? We’ll be expecting you at Arizona’s original endless summer staycation destination in 2019!
