Phoenix Resort Announces Return of its Most Popular Summer Hotel Deal

Enjoy a summer lovin’ getaway for the young and young at heart when a popular Phoenix vacation package returns to the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa. The Phoenix resort’s Family Fling & Swing Package starts at $149/night and will be available June 3 through Sept. 5.

The amazing summer package is back due to popular demand and includes a $50 daily resort credit, free golf on Faldo and Palmer championship golf courses, free meals for kids 12 and under at Blue Sage, free daily appetizer at Meritage Steakhouse, free in-room Wi-Fi, 10% off retail purchases in the resort’s Marriott outlets, complimentary parking, and no resort fee.

The JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge has a well-deserved reputation as a premier Phoenix family resort, and preferred dates book fast, so travelers are advised to plan early for their stay.

The Phoenix resort offers a dazzling variety of family attractions sure to bring out the inner child in everyone. Among the most popular is the four acre pool complex 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 slippery thrills. 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 and located next to interactive dancing fountains. The Isla del Sol spa has a private setting for relaxing in soothing warm water with massaging jets.

Other summer activities for children include 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.
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 at their Desert Ridge restaurant, 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 this renowned Arizona spa resort, 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.
