Set in 70 acres of panoramic rugged wilderness, the aptly named Enchantment Resort means you can enjoy your own magical desert escape with exhilarating jeep tours, hiking and biking in the mountains, a world-class spa and breath-taking views of Arizona’s stunning Red Rock Country.
Only two hours’ drive north of Phoenix, the hotel sits in splendid isolation in the vermillion-coloured Boynton Canyon, giving you the space and the freedom to experience Sedona’s famed red rock natural splendour. Surrounded on all sides by soaring rock buttresses and a cacti-peppered desert moonscape, this is the perfect spot for inspiration of mind, body and spirit.
After a day exploring and hiking, your stand-alone casita or junior suite is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries. Each suite boasts a large sitting room, private patio and an open beehive fireplace and comes dressed with furnishings inspired by the natural desert surroundings. But the best bit? Your room also comes with its own outdoor barbeque (not to worry, we will arrange a chef for you) and even a plunge pool.
why we like it
Spectacular views and lux amenities aside, it was the native American-inspired spa treatments at the Mii Amo spa retreat that really caught our eye. It’s one of the state’s most pampering spa and special emphasis is put on the journey that body and mind go throughout the day… for us it was destination: bliss.
