Amara Spa at Kimpton’s Amara Resort & Spa is debuting a variety of new Sedona-centric services exclusive to the resort that tie into its new look after undergoing a refresh that was part of a $1 million property redesign.
Native American rattles, sage smudging, healing crystals, chakra balancing, custom oil blends of lavender, rosemary and sage that rain down the spine and the detoxifying properties of local Sedona mud, help guests reconnect spiritually to the local environment and harness the metaphysical energy of the area for which Sedona has become famous. Set against red rock panoramas and nestled along Oak Creek, Amara Spa adds another dimension of peace and tranquility. The spa’s new enchanting experiences are rich in native ingredients and reflect a sincere love for the area. Some favorites include:
Rain Dance Massage ($140): Integrating body, mind and spirit, this ceremonial 60-minute massage uses Amara’s signature oils of lavender, rosemary, and sage which are luxuriously dropped down your spine. Ease into this harmonious dance as sprinkles of lavender oil both help to relax muscles and address fatigue. Rosemary oil trickles down next in this powerful service for deeper clearing and healing effects. Purifying and grounding qualities of sage are then delivered along with a rhythmic movement dancing you into tranquility. Conclude with a warm oil scalp massage.
Winds of Change Massage ($190): Native rattles, smudging with sage, crystals and specially crafted oils, combined with compassionate healing hands, reconnects your being to your spirit during a 90-minute massage. Amara’s gifted healers use energy work, balance your chakras and connect you to ancient healing rituals. The wind of a feather sweeps away tension. This complete service includes a relaxing massage.
Moon Chasing Sun Facial ($190): This 90 minute ritual will take you deeper into a state of bliss. Begin with an aroma inhalation of your choosing, body compressions, and warm towels.

Amara’s new “modern native” esthetic, infuses elements of Native American and Southwestern pattern and designs, but reinvented in a contemporary way. Pulling from the color palette of the surrounding lush foliage and the brilliant desert flowers that dot the property, green, aubergine, bright marigold and injections of hot fuchsia define the new interiors, which perfectly complement the red rock views that envelop the resort.
