Surrounded by the striking red rock views of Sedona’s Boynton Canyon, and within steps of Enchantment Resort, Mii amo invites guests to embark on a Journey of personal discovery with world-class spa treatments, all-inclusive dining, private casita accommodations and memorable guest experiences, such as labyrinth walks, solstice ceremonies and Canyon Bathing. Additionally, guests are invited to explore out with ride-in, ride-out access to over 250 miles of Sedona’s scenic hiking and biking trails.

Mii amo offers personalized three-, four- or seven-night Journeys, co-created between the guest and their Journey Guide, resulting in an all-inclusive itinerary of inspired spa treatments and programming centered on the guest’s unique intentions.

Mii amo’s award-winning design was inspired by Boynton Canyon and pays homage to Native American tradition through its name which means “one’s path” in the indigenous Yuman language. Its 16 casitas are surrounded by cottonwood trees and feature landscaped courtyards, a beehive fireplace and whirlpool and deep-soaking tubs. Outdoor showers and private massage areas are also included in premium casitas.

Guests at Mii amo enjoy mindful cuisine from its in-house Mii amo Café, with an exhibition-style kitchen lead by Chef Holly Palmer. Appointed in October 2018, Chef Palmer oversees all culinary operations and crafts menus that are comprised of organic, locally sourced ingredients and fresh produce from Mii amo’s Chef’s Garden.
