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
Resort was nice, but the restaurant needs a lot of work. Both breakfast and Dinner was not what we expected. For the kind of resort, the Food did not match the resort but falls very short. The food was prepared when our dinner was ice cold in parts, which tells me and my wife that the food was not freshly prepared. Extremely disappointed
We had issues at this resort. Our shower head was blocked and did not spray properly. We had ants in our room. You had to call to get the bottle water that was a big surprise. You aspect to get free bottle water if you are paying $675. per night.When we went for a drink and dinner at View180, the service was very poor and the food quality was average.
The spa experience was excellent. The room decor and amenities is average.
Liked the resort but the spa experience and restaurants were a big disappointment. We ended up spending all of our nights eating in downtown Sedona for our anniversary weekend. The resort menus were just average and service at their nice restaurant was bad the night of our anniversary. The spa experience was lacking a lot for the money plus we found out you need to pay to use the spa pool even after you spend $700 on two messages and 4-nights at the resort ($3,200+)... what a joke! We could have gone to Europe for the amount spend at Enchantment. Save your money and stay somewhere else.
