For a really long time I have wanted to getaway to the Mountain Shadows Hotel. For those who don’t know, the hotel is a renovated boutique resort legendary from the 60s. Known for its picturesque mountain views & desert and a major destination for golfers and locals. After being locked in so long during the pandemic, I was craving a change of scene and a nice pool day so I booked a room and checked myself in to Mountain Shadows in Scottsdale.
This hotel is the kind of place you would check-in to for a staycation, as the idyllic surrounds make it hard to leave the property to venture elsewhere – with a fantastic outdoor pool area, a selection of great food from Hearth 61 and outdoors so beautiful it’s the perfect wedding venue. I have probably witnessed a ceremony every-time I’ve been and I promise after you visit you will see why.
Lets talk brunch because what is a beautiful view and outdoor patio without late breakfast. At this point I have tired the entire menu and the ricotta banana pancakes are mandatory. A MUST. The pv breakfast burrito was surprisingly delicious and my friends all agreed. A popular amongst the crowd.
Strongly recommend the burrata, charred octopus, and the salmon and the cocktails. Yes, the drinks are incredible you can’t go wrong with any but the pomm margarita and the cucumber basil gimlet are 10 out of 10. And of course if you’re like me the dirty martinis do not disappoint. By now you know this is how I rate a bar. If the dirty martinis are done right, you know the rest are excellent.
If you’ve looked up Mountain Shadows or come across their IG you’ve probably already seen the pool area with views that just screams vacay mode. I’ll just leave these photos here. Let you see for yourself.
