Amara Resort and Spa

Why we love it: this sanctuary sits along Oak Creek Canyon, steps away from buzzy Uptown Sedona


Highlights:
- a hotel shuttle to nearby trail heads
- free morning yoga, happy hour, and courtyard lawn games
- a superb spa with treatments like the Rain Dance ceremonial massage, featuring sage, lavender, and rosemary essential oils


The review: This eclectic, artistic, 100-room property attracts adventurous extroverts, ready to play in the area’s red rocks, then swap tales over morning coffee or the evening wine session.


The décor honors the area’s Native American heritage, incorporating elements like grass-woven baskets. Nature also plays a powerful role with handcrafted windfall-wood headboards, plus water features and crackling firepits outside under Sedona’s iconic Snoopy Rock.


Guest rooms echo the hues of desert wildflowers, popping against a palette of soothing neutrals. Expect modern art, Italian linens, and Atelier Bloem toiletries, plus floor-to-ceiling windows in the suites.


The SaltRock Southwest Kitchen blends California cuisine with Verde Valley classics — most famously the locally made aerated beer cheese. Start with an agave-based drink, perhaps on the outdoor patio. Then continue on to dishes like cotija-cauliflower tacos and braised osso buco. Finish with tres leches (milk) cake or a brownie glazed in chocolate-chile-caramel ganache.
