During Memorial Day weekend, Fairmont Scottsdale Princess opens its sixth and largest pool – Sunset Beach (pictured above) – with 830 tons of white sand, glamorous cabanas and 102 luxurious new guest rooms.
Centered around the new pool opening is “Summer Beach Party at the Princess,” taking place every weekend Memorial Day through Labor Day. This celebration is a mix of fun throughout the resort with cool rides down waterslides, Techno Glo pool parties, Dive In movies, the new four-story Aqua Flyer inflatable waterslide, the new Mermaid University (pictured below), Swashbuckler Academy and three summer fairies, Dew Drop, Sparkles and Poppy Pixie, who are delightful new Fairmont friends to meet. Plus, the resort has two relaxing pools just for grown-ups.
At the lagoons, fishing is fun with Ranger Rick, who also leads nature walks and bird watching with the resort’s falconers. Other unique experiences include sampling any of 240 tequilas a La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval, escaping to Well & Being Spa, savoring a dish at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak or enjoy the sunset and Pan-Latin fare at Toro at TPC Scottsdale.
Fireworks then light up the sky summer Saturday evenings, and holiday weekends including Memorial Day, 4th of July Freedom Fest and Labor Day Dreamcation offer an even greater line-up of festivities.
Memorial Day weekend 2016 kicks off with nightly beach party concerts from tribute bands: Friday, May 27 is Surf’s Up (Beach Boys); Saturday, May 28 is Coral Paradise (Jimmy Buffet) and Sunday, May 29, Desperado (The Eagles).
