Pointe Hilton at Squaw Peak
Why just swim when you can play? This was the philosophy that PACE brought to the Pointe Hilton Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. In order to distinguish themselves from other prestigious resorts in the area, Pointe Hilton wanted to build more than a pool. They wanted to build an experience.
A centerpiece since the resort opened, the Pointe Hilton water park was designed by PACE to blend seamlessly around existing natural rock formations. Amenities include a 5,000 square foot free form swimming pool complete with crashing waterfalls, a 2,000 square foot sport pool featuring two water volleyball courts and a water basketball court, a 90 square foot spa, a 250 square foot wading pool, and a 135 linear foot water slide with 18 vertical feet of drop into a 300 square foot pool. All of these are a warm up to the main attraction – the quarter mile long lazy river, “Rio Rico,” which floats guests through and around the natural and manmade rock formations.
Appealing to the young and old, the lure of the Pointe Hilton water park keeps guests coming back for more.
