Final chance to escape the heat at Kimpton Amara Resort

As summer draws to a close, Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa’s lowest rates of the year from $209/night will end on Sept. 13, offering one last chance to take that summer getaway.

Located in Sedona, Ariz. just along the banks of Oak Creek Canyon, Amara is the ideal setting for a relaxing escape away from the hustle and bustle of the city and of course, the heat. That’s why their “Escape the Heat Package” offers specials to entice visitors as they make plans for their last vacation of the season.

Offers include:

• Discounted rates starting at $209 per night

• A daily $20 resort credit.

• A special treatment at their renowned spa.

• A seasonal menu with items crafted by the new executive chef at SaltRock Kitchen.

Amara will also continue “Stargazing & S’Mores”, a program that attracts crowds of 50-plus people who gather around the courtyard for a night of high-tech stargazing with a local astronomer.
