Sedona is the perfect escape for those looking to getaway without having to go too far. This summer, Kimpton Amara Resort & Spa is letting guests enjoy the red rock town with some of its lowest room rates of the year plus limited-time spa treatments, stargazing events and new Southwestern flavors. With so many great Sedona-inspired amenities, why wouldn’t you want to go?
Stargazing & S’mores
Sedona’s “dark sky designation” means its free of artificial light pollution and ideal for gazing up at the twinkling sky. Amara adds to that every Monday night (after Memorial Day through Labor Day) by providing complimentary s’mores kits for toasting at outdoor fire pits while a local astronomy expert guides guests through high-tech stargazing.
SaltRock Southwest Kitchen’s new Executive Chef Logan Stephenson has created a new menu that blends together his Louisiana upbringing with a mix of Southwest traditions and California sensibility. Look for new dishes like the Vera Cruz-Style Crab Cakes with handmade sopes, chipotle butter, poblano aioli and baby cress; Seared Pork Belly with mole verde, wild onions and seared rajas; and Local Trout with foraged mushrooms, Chile tepin and grille kale. Enjoy it all amid 180-degree views of Sedona’s Camelhead and Snoopy red rock formations.
Praised by publications like Vogue.com, The New York Times and The Huffington Post, among others, Amara Spa is the perfect way to zen-out and disconnect. Try the new 60-minute Sedona Embrace that incorporates aspects of traditional Southwestern folk healing using the smells of Sedona like sweet grass and cork bark fir. The treatment incorporates sheets that cocoon you plus choreographed stretching and compressions and rhythmic stretching. It’s then topped off with soft heartbeats and complete silence. Available June 1 through August 31, 2018.
