Fairmont Gold x Bryte Bed

Health is the ultimate luxury. Or for moms, is it sleep? Every mom knows sleep carries exponential potential to revitalize our daily rhythms and restore our sense of peace, awareness and gratitude.

Enjoy one of the most restorative and sought-after spa experiences in Scottsdale at Well & Being Spa. Housed within 44,000 sq. ft. of spa bliss are two incredible experiences—Sisley Paris Spa and Well & Being Spa. Both designed to pamper moms beyond measure, it’s completely left up to you to decide how you’d prefer to decompress. Enjoy 60- or 90-minutes of bliss with a signature massage or facial, try a group sound bowl meditation class, treat yourselves to mani pedis at the salon or breathe in calming scents and silence in the inhalation room. We guarantee with each sip of tea, coffee or champagne in your lush spa robes the stress will slip further and further away.


Fairmont Scottsdale Princess’ wellness philosophy is rooted in the belief that self-care is not an indulgence but a necessity, and our surrounding city provides the ideal backdrop to embark on this transformative path. Immerse yourself in the healing embrace of our serene Scottsdale surroundings, where the vast expanse of desert vistas and majestic mountains inspire a sense of tranquility and introspection. Plan a hike up nearby on Tom’s Thumb Trail, visit a local farmer’s market at High Street, take in the meditation-friendly grounds of the Phoenix Botanical Garden’s Contemplation Garden or Japanese Friendship Garden or take a day trip up to Sedona, the country’s epicenter of spiritual and personal enrichment.


Nothing says self-care more than an adult-only pool, plush daybeds and a cocktail-stacked bar. Let your responsibilities float away and prepare to fully enjoy kid-free poolside freedom at Sonoran Landing Pool. Need we say more?
