Mountain Shadows’ pool area on its own is incredible. Sprawling cabanas and daybeds, views of the neighboring mountains and, of course, all the shimmering Arizona sunshine one could ever want all combine to make this one of the resort’s best amenities. But this summer, they’re taking it a step further by adding a live poolside DJ-saxophone duo performance to serenade guests as they kick back and bask in the sun. Through the 4th of July, you won’t want to miss out on this unrivaled ambiance upgrade to Mountain Shadows’ beautiful pool area.
