Fairmont Friends to Meet and Greet
Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the resort’s new Techno-Bot siblings, Beta and Blast, along with Bixby and Gibbs, the Princess’ adoring canine ambassadors. Another favorite friend is Cecil, the resort’s desert tortoise in his habitat near Canyon Lawn/La Hacienda. At the lagoons, nature walks and fishing derbies are fun with Ranger Rick, who introduces families to the flora and fauna of the Southwest. At the Feathered Friends of Fairmont Hawk Talk, guests can meet and learn about the resort’s resident hawks and falcons from expert handlers of Sonoran Desert Falconry.

Top Resort Experiences for Grown-Ups
Adults looking to relax and unwind can find sanctuary at Well & Being Spa with a number of rejuvenating treatments or try something new like Float Fit paddleboard yoga at the rooftop pool. Golfers can play like a pro at the TPC Scottsdale in the resort’s own backyard. Curated wine and spirit tastings are unique with resort experts such as the Tequila Goddess at La Hacienda, Rum Princesa at Toro Latin Restaurant & Rum Bar or the wine sommelier at Bourbon Steak, with pairings to fresh summer menus by renowned chefs.
