One of the most delightful things about Sedona is its uncanny ability to calm the spirit and rejuvenate the body. Perhaps its the stunning views, the fresh air, or the powerful vortexes with their high concentration of positive metaphysical energy — or a combination of them all. Whatever the reasons, Sedona is an ideal place to relax and rejuvenate. For a spa destination vacation, consider Enchantment Resort. Tucked away in Boyton Canyon on the west end of the city, this beautiful resort features all of the components you’ll need to rediscover yourself. Start your morning with yoga and meditation at the resort’s Mii Amo Spa or take a guided hike to the foot of Kachina Woman, Boyton Canyon’s vortex. Relax in the heated pool or take a hike along Boyton Canyon Trail, accessible from the resort property.
Morning breakfast is best had at Mii Amo Cafe, which features a delicious, and healthy culinary experience filled with locally-inspired dishes. (You’ll even find the nutrition facts detailed on the menus). Book your spa treatments in advance; there are countless styles and options to choose from — like the desert-inspired prickly pear butter wrap and the traditional Ayurvedic body massage. If you wish to venture outside of the canyon for a hike among the red rocks, consider a yoga on the red rocks trip to Bell Rock.
For lunch consider Tii Gavo at the resort or Mii Amo Cafe again at the spa. You’ll find locally-inspired dishes ranging from charred scallop salad at Mii Amo to tacos at Tii Gavo. Try drinks and appetizers just before sunset at View 180, the outdoor bar and seating area featuring the best views in the canyon. You can watch the dying light play across the red rock formations. You’ll also catch a glimpse of Kachina Woman from here. For a more formal dinner, try Che Ah Chi, which also offers breathtaking views along with an award-winning wine list and a paired menu featuring locally-sourced Arizona ingredients.
At night the canyon is so dark they hand out flashlights, but this makes for the perfect opportunity for stargazing. There are several outdoor patios on property, often with wood-burning fireplaces, and Native American blankets draped across the seats to keep you warm in the cooler months. Curl up with a cocktail or glass of wine from Tii Gavo’s bar and drink in the night sky.
For a truly indulgent experience, book your stay in one of the spa’s 16 guest rooms or suites. With their multi-day packages, you receive twice a day spa treatments and all of your meals included at Mii Amo Cafe.
