05.24.2009 – Phoenix, AZ – (May 2009) – This Father’s Day why not give the man who has everything he needs something he actually wants: a little R&R. This year, fathers are invited to unwind, golf and bond with their families at The Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa.

While the resort setting alone is serene, the relaxation quotient is increased at the Mobil Four-Star Aji Spa. This Father’s Day, Aji is offering plenty of intriguing options to best suit dad and enable him to unwind this Father’s Day. Allow him to renew with one of two 80-minute spa treatments designed with Dad in mind. Choose from either an Invigorating Body Massage or an Exfoliating Salt Scrub. Each treatment combines a masculine blend of rosemary, mint and cedar wood oils and includes a hot stone foot massage to send him merrily on his way. Fathers are encouraged to make a day of it, stay and enjoy the Aji Spa facilities including; a state-of-the-art fitness center, private adult-only pool, sauna, steam room, and cold plunge pool. These specially designed spa treatments are offered June 1-30, from $135 exclusive of tax and gratuities. For reservations or more information, call: 602-385-5759 or visit www.ajibrochure.com. Exclusively on Fathers day weekend (June 19-21) all dads will receive a complimentary local micro-brew to sip in enjoyment by the pool.

If Dad’s vision of relaxation is more clubs than rubs, Troon managed Whirlwind Golf Club provides the proper way to honor him with perfectly priced golf packages. The Stay and Play golf package, valid throughout the month of June, includes a night of fun with the family and a day of action on the greens. Pricing begins at $150/single, $205/double per night, please mention promotional code: GOLF4HIM, when making room and tee time reservations.
