Our Wonder-Filled Stay at Sedona’s Adobe Grand Villas
I suppose one of the best ways to describe Sedona, Arizona’s Adobe Grand Villas might be to use the words from one of their competitor properties when we were planning our trip:
“We can’t compete with Adobe Grand Villas. Their property is amazing, and even Olivia Newton John stays there when she comes to town.”
I was a little taken back when I heard a competing property manager say this, but it also confirmed our resolve to go check this place out.
The Adobe Grand Villas is an amazing place!
The minute you walk through the front gate, you will be transported into a place of wonder perhaps not unlike Alice in Wonderland. The gardens are amazing, filled with captivating sculptures, and everywhere the eye can focus is a statement from the property’s creator that this is going to be not just a stay, but an experience.
I knew this was going to be a cool place when I noticed that the front door of the lobby was in fact a working water sculpture. When we walked in the front door, the decor (I shudder to even call it that) was filled with wonder. There were molasses cookies, candies, and delicious lemon-aide to refresh us as we completed the brief check-in process.
We were then whisked away to our own corner of this wonderland where we were first greeted by an amazing front door, er…work of art. We walked inside to find the smell of fresh baking bread, a romantic table set up with a welcome placard set prominently in view.
Immediately, the custom-built bed captivated our attention, quickly followed by the incredible stonework in the fireplace. Our host taught us how to get at our bread when it finished baking, and taught us the workings of the in-room entertainment system.
She then walked us into the bathroom. This bathroom was larger than most hotel rooms! It was huge!
The sinks were a work of art. The shower! How to describe the shower? The entrance to the shower was another labor of artistic love, and the shower itself was a waterfall! No shower head, but you showered in a waterfall!
At the other end of this incredible bathroom, was a two-person jetted bath with another fireplace all designed to create the perfect atmosphere for romance. The entertainment system also piped music through separate speakers into this space.
The food at Adobe Grand Villas was superb, and if you like, they have a personal on-site chef, Michael Merilli, to further compliment your experience.
Oh…and if all this wasn’t enough….this was the view outside our window!
I hope you get the picture.
You must visit Sedona, Arizona, and when you do, you must spend some time at Adobe Grand Villas!

Wow, looks traditional. I always like traditional looks and would always prefer staying in an traditional Italian or Spanish architecture villas or cottages.
