Seeking a few changing leaves in cool temps? Check into Sedona’s Amara Resort & Spa, one of the top hotels in Northern Arizona that just unveiled a $2 million makeover.
This fall, Amara Resort & Spa in Sedona unveiled a stunning $2 million renovation that transformed the resort’s 100 guest rooms, pool, restaurant, outdoor event space, fitness center, lobby and more. The guests can first admire the makeover upon stepping into Amara’s luxe lobby. It has been updated to show off a modern aesthetic—like a chic New York City boutique—being updated with new tile, sleek furniture, check-in kiosks, a gift shop and more. The eye-popping circular chandelier is especially eye-catching.
Then, it is time to check out the new and improved guest rooms (many of which overlook Oak Creek and Sedona’s red rocks). Each of Amara’s high-end rooms received a crown molding installation, upgraded bathroom furniture and fixtures, new carpet and signature bedding. The spaces are roomy and welcoming, decked with rich tones and dark woods—a perfect complement to the surrounding Sedona.
Though Amara’s guest rooms provide plenty of opportunity for r-n-r, the brand new infinity-edge pool, overlooking Oak Creek canyon, is a great spot to spend the day, especially when retreating to one of the three new contemporary first come, first serve cabanas. At night, consider a dip in the new hot tub. The 4,000-sq.-ft. Amara Spa is another primo spot for unwinding. Whether you reserve your spot for a facial with one of the talented therapists or a transforming, mellow morning yoga session, a stop at the sure is sure to ease those stresses that often pop up during the holiday season.
The food isn’t the only thing that’ll wow at Hundred Rox, the resort’s signature American-fusion restaurant. (The crab-stuffed trout entrée and southwestern chicken and black bean roll app are tops.) Like much of the resort, the restaurant was also transformed via updated art, new carpet, fresh furniture and more. Though the Hundred Rox interior is a beauty, the true pièce de résistance is the alfresco area. Water features and fire pits are perfect for cozying up to and enjoying the cool weather and picture-ready views. www.amararesort.com.
