JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort is celebrating the inner child in everyone with four acres of water fun including five pools, a meandering lazy river and 89-foot waterslide.
The fun is on with a line-up of resort summer activities including movies under the stars, arts and crafts and the Family Escape Club providing entertainment, computer fun or just a place for lounging for teens and kids of all ages.
The pool complex at JW Marriott Desert Ridge has been voted “No. 1 Pool” in the Valley by Phoenix Magazine featuring a meandering 1,600-linear-foot lazy river with underwater jets for enjoying a cool and relaxing ride and waterslide with 89 feet of fun.
The grand Wildfire pool, topped by glowing fire at night, is the resort’s largest pool and serves as a beacon in the center of the shimmering waterways. The Sidewinder pool reflects its serpentine namesake and the Mesa pool is ideal for families with an average depth of 3.5 feet, located next to the interactive dancing fountains. The Isla del Sol spa has a private setting for relaxing in soothing warm water with massaging jets.
Wildfire Golf Club, home to the LPGA tournament and a multi-award winning club including “Top 75 Golf Resorts in North America” by Condé Nast and “Best Resort Course in the Southwest” by Travel & Leisure Golf features two picturesque 18-hole courses situated in the rugged Sonoran desert designed by golf’s greatest legends — Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo.
With 10 eateries to choose from, guests will find that JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa has redefined resort dining. From elegant Italian cuisine in Tuscany to steaks and seafood at Meritage Steakhouse, casual American cuisine at Blue Sage and gourmet poolside fare at Just a Splash, the dining options are varied for pleasing the entire family.
The package’s special resort credit can also be used at Revive Spa featuring 41 elegantly appointed treatment rooms and a two-story rotunda with a central water feature that flows directly underneath an open skylight two floors above. Beautiful, tranquil settings abound at Revive Spa with indigenous signature treatments combining ancient rituals and cutting-edge techniques. Spa guests will also appreciate such special features as private balconies, indoor relaxation rooms, secluded patios and outdoor celestial showers.
AAA Four Diamond award-winning JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa is set on 316 acres in the Sonoran desert featuring sweeping views of the crimson-hued McDowell Mountains and wandering waterways that weave through the breathtaking lush oasis. Fiery Arizona sunsets and the picturesque, cactus-studded desert add to the resort’s serene setting.
Upon arrival at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort, guests are greeted by majestic palm-lined pathways, splashing fountains and a spectacular tumbled marble grand lobby with stunning floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing desert vistas. Guest room balconies overlook wildflower gardens, swimming pools, lakes, waterways and golf course or mountain views.
