Sedona resort launches adventure-focused stays
For those looking to escape to the Southwest this year, Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona has launched an adventure-focused stay package and a dedicated concierge team for curated, off-site excursions as guests explore the famed red rocks and some of the region’s most celebrated national parks, monuments and scenic byways.
The perfect four-season retreat, Sedona offers the ideal getaway for visitors as they journey through Northern Arizona mountain country, with renowned outdoor destinations including Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and the Grand Canyon, Saguaro, and Petrified Forest national parks all located just a short drive away. Tucked along the banks of Oak Creek, Amara allows guests to savor the fresh mountain air while taking a dip in the infinity-edge pool, sipping fireside craft cocktails and playing lawn games like cornhole and connect four in the open-air courtyard, all set against unobstructed views of the Cleopatra and Snoopy rock formations. During their stay, guests can also enjoy meals on the expansive patio of Amara’s signature restaurant, SaltRock Southwest Kitchen, which features a menu of fresh, light and seasonal dishes from Executive Chef Lindsey Dale that incorporate culinary traditions and ingredients of the Southwest and Verde Valley.
Available to book now through the end of the year, Amara is offering a “Sedona Adventure” stay package starting from $259 per night including:
