Koi at The PhoenicianAfter my luxurious visit last week to The Canyon Suites, I was invited by one of the  Funicians Clubs bunny team to Necklace Lake to feed the Koi. As bunny hopped in front of me, leading the way, she told me that every morning at 9:30, the Koi swim to the side of the lake to be fed. To be honest, I wasn’t that excited. Feeding fish. Big yawn. But then, I saw them! My disinterest quickly turned into an open-mouth gasp. Not only do these Koi have the most vibrant hues imaginable, they are huge, some bigger than I! They swim up so close, you can actually touch them. I was, and am still, bedazzled.

Tut_tut_for_history.jpg copyWhile we gazed at this phenomenal phenomenon, we were joined by Tut-Tut, the turtle. As I read in the resort’s new children’s book, Discover The Phoenician with Phoe-Phoe & Friends, Tut-Tut lives in The Phoenician’s deep blue Necklace Lake and has been here since before the resort was built 25 years ago. He knows the history of The Phoenician better than anyone. He’s a wise old guy who can often be found at the Funicians Club helping out. I’ve heard he bestows on his listeners uncommonly sage advice, such as:

It’s best to be slow and chipper, than to rush and trip o’er your flipper.

and

A real friend will always stick his neck out for you.

He’s one deep turtle!

More to come next week, as I sniff out adventure® all over this special AAA Five Diamond resort in hopes of earning an invite to its Thanksgiving book-signing event for Discover The Phoenician with Phoe-Phoe & Friends and to dine on some of the chef’s famous turkey.

PrintOh, and here’s something to bark about: the Funicians Club is now open to kids across the Valley whose parents are utilizing services from The Centre for Well -Being, The Phoenician Golf Course or The Phoenician Tennis Courts. Highly trained and enthusiastic counselors ensure that kids have a fun and enriching experience, 365 days a year. Twenty-four hour advanced registration is required. Contact the concierge to “mark your spot”  at (480) 423- 2572.
