Our Visit to Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona
If I were asked to close my eyes, and recall the most spectacular place I have ever laid my eyes upon, the setting of The Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona would likely be one of the first to my mind.
I found myself completely mute as we drove into Boynton Canyon where the perennial award winning Enchantment Resort finds its home.
This amazing resort is tucked into a canyon with breathtaking red rock splendor closely surrounding it on three sides.
This particular canyon is in fact so beautiful that many have come to believe that this place has special spiritual vortexes:
“The energy from these vortexes saturates the whole area in and around Sedona, and can be noticed in a subtle but general way anywhere around town. If you actually go to one of the vortex sites, which is where the energy is strongest, it can be a very uplifting experience. The energy you take in at one of these energy centers can stay with you and affect you positively for days afterwards.
Now, we are not personally persuaded to believe such things. Nonetheless, the place is so stunningly beautiful it is easy to see why some would desire to press spiritual beliefs upon the place.
If you have become a reader of this travel website, you will know that in my view a spectacular resort must offer more than beautiful surroundings. A resort might have incredible features, but if the experience with the resort’s team members are not equal to, or greater than their surroundings, then discontent is quick to follow.
Clearly, the Enchantment Resort shares this very important conviction as we found at every turn service that exceeded our expectations.
From the moment we drove up to the valet stand, to the moment where we sadly checked out at the front desk, we found every single team member united in a single mission to make our experience remarkable.
Thanks Enchantment Resort, we noticed and we salute you!
I hesitate to make this article so long that you won’t read the whole thing, but I simply must share a few highlights of our stay:
- Our Junior Suite sat under the shade of the canyon’s cottonwood trees, was spacious, and very comfortable. I suppose the most discriminating of travelers would be disappointed that our room didn’t feature today’s flat screen televisions, but I understand that there is a major remodel of the resort in the offing.
- I can’t begin to explain the beauty that surrounds the Mii Amo Spa. As you can see in the photograph directly above, there is unfathomable beauty awaiting to engulf you in its majesty after your spa treatment. When I walked out from my steam bath, a fairly strong wind blew through, and it looked to be snowing from the seedlings from the surrounding cottonwood trees. It was surreal.
- I will tell you more in a separate post, but watching the sunset/moonrise from the resort’s Yavapai restaurant was awe-inspiring, highly romantic, and the cuisine was equal to its surroundings.
- Lastly, you simply must get out and hike the Boynton Canyon Trail. This 5-mile trail is approachable from the Mii Amo Spa, and will take you back into the beauty, and solitude of this remarkable place. In my opinion, it would be nearly criminal not to get out on this trail. After a mile or so, the sounds of modernity will drift away, and the cool breeze sounding its way through towering pines, and the endless red rock vistas will simply take your breath away.
Well, I hope you get the idea. Sedona’s Enchantment Resort is simply a place you must visit in your lifetime. I promise that you will greatly enjoy your stay, and you will be blessed with fond memories that will constantly stir to be told to your family and friends.
