For the Labor Day Weekend, you can always go to Las Vegas, which pops up in just about every list as one of the most popular destinations for Labor Day travelers. Saying Aloha to Hawaii doesn’t seem too shabby either. Or…
The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
You could land up at The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, AZ and get a taste of both Vegas and Hawaii. That’s because the resort is planning to bring both Las Vegas and Hawaii to its guests on September 3 and 4.
On Sept 4, guests staying at the resort will be able to experience “Viva Las Vegas” with a high-roller buffet and a Zowie Bowie concert.
Vacationers can renew their vows with the resort’s in-house ordained minister and be whisked away in a golf cart trailing with tins cans chauffeured by Elvis. If it walks like Vegas and quacks like Vegas…
On Sept 3, The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess will look like home to a Kamaaina, with a Hawaiian buffet, an authentic Polynesian show of fire and hula dancing on the Lagoon Lawn, with poolside limbo, lei making and dive-in movies.
At the famed and award-winning Willow Stream spa, guests can enjoy a Lomi Lomi Massage along with hula dance classes and mai tais served on the rooftop pool.
One of the resort restaurants will be serving an island dinner with a smoked pull pork Hawaiian burger, pineapple and jalapeno on a house-made Hawaiian bun, and a breezy “Day at the Beach” cocktail. The dessert is Mainland Haupia, made of mango panna cotta, coconut cake and sorbet.
On both nights, there will be a fireworks show and guests will get a chance to win real vacation stays in Hawaii and Las Vegas – at The Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island, The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui and the Aria Resort & Casino in Vegas. The package includes a late 4 pm check-out on Monday, Sept 5.
Sonoran splash slides
Apart from the aforementioned Willow Stream Spa, the AAA-five diamond resort offers 4 restaurants, two 18-hole championship golf courses, and three parking lots (hybrid owners get complimentary overnight valet and self parking). Not to mention the Sonoran splash slides.
The guest rooms come with a balcony or terrace with table and chairs, and guests can expect an in-room safe, in-room coffee makers, high-speed internet, soak tubs and showers, flat-screens with in-room pay movies and video games.
