What We Love
- Waking up to a newspaper and fresh orange juice waiting at the door
- The profusion of Native American motifs in the resort's design
- Playing croquet on the (internationally rated!) courts
What To Know
- The spa is adults only
- There's a daily resort fee
- Cell phone service can be spotty
You’d imagine that an isolated canyon resort would be a tranquil place to relax and do nothing—and it is—but there are also myriad activities available daily for those who want to do more than lounge by the pool looking at the scenery. Hiking Boynton Canyon is probably the most popular activity, but there are jeep tours, hot air balloon rides, tennis courts, a golf club, cooking demos, wine tastings and wellness workshops…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Accommodation at Enchantment is in adobe casitas that complement the landscape; inside, natural materials including wool Pendleton blankets, benches upholstered in leather, and stone countertops help enhance the feeling of being in one of nature’s most spectacular achievements. Comforts aren’t neglected—beehive fireplaces occupy a corner of most rooms and are deliciously cozy on cool desert nights, viewing decks are generously sized and look out onto the red rock formations, and the pool suites (splurge if you can) have heated outdoor spa pools with waterfall features that are a romantic’s dream.
In the Area
Part of the appeal of Enchantment Resort is its isolation. It’s a nine-mile drive from Sedona, and most guests will probably spend the majority of their time close to home or on one of the outdoor excursions that are so popular. The resort’s seclusion doesn’t extend to animals, though—javelin, coyote, and deer are all around. If you want to drive into Sedona for a day’s shopping or a nice dinner, you’ll want a car, but it’s probably easier to spend a day in the city before or after your stay at Enchantment, so you can let the isolation and natural beauty work its magic on your stress levels.
How to Get There
No cell service - plan accordingly! Otherwise incredible views at a relaxing, romantic resort that seeks to make your entire stay carefree. We enjoyed the spa, hikes, shopping, and eating. The resort is full-service but restaurants/bars shut down earlier than we expected. Still, an overall incredible experience.
Nestled in the red rocks of Sedona a beautiful resort to rest and recharge and use as a base to explore this wonderful area
Excellent service and food
Spectacular views from the rooms ,bar and restaurant
This property has an absolutely beautiful location. The restaurants were good and the spa is amazing! We went for my moms 70th birthday. I was disappointed in our junior suite. I spend $2400 for 3 nights. This did not include the spa treatments and all of the meals. The suite was clean but it had a mildew smell and I did not feel it was worth the money. Next time I would stay at a different property and just visit the spa for the day.
If you visit the spa ask for Annette or Gina Jane!!
A most beautiful and serene resort set in the mountains of Sedona. A magnificent end to a Grand Canyon journey with girlfriends. We used the spa, lived our oversized rooms, cozy nooks, great restaurants and scenery.
Service at checkin needs more staff. But all other service was great.
We have been to this resort twice in the past 2 years and had great experiences. I recently invited family to join me there and was MOST disappointed in the service at Enchantment this time. Poor service and attention in restaurants, rooms not ready on time and as promised, charges for services that used to be complimentary, staff seemed overwhelmed and untrained, etc. This is a beautiful location, but the quality of the property and service is now NOT worth the money.
