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
Yap...we are wondering...a header like mine and only 3 star?
I feel generous today ...perhaps 2 star would have been a more honest statement..
We have being coming here for several years now not as often as a yearly date but close to it.
Rooms are nice..good views..quite enough..the grounds are well kept..personal on top of their games.....so...again..why 3 stars..
FOOD..to find a resort such as this where your senses are ready to explode including the incredible Spa “Mi Amo” it’s not easy however the management has the courage to give you food that is basically below almost any standard.
Selection, especially the room service menu, is poor.. presentation “basic”.my experience at the main restaurant was not much better...it’s a shame.. this places is all about find yourself again...find your inner-self and your deepest senses...looks like eating and is not part of the Enchantment view of a good life...
Perhaps a new Chef would make it perfect experience...let’s hope for the best in the future however as July 2018 the food is a mess.
Breathtaking views from the dining patio as the evening shadows creep up on the wall of Red Rocks. You feel as though you can touch the majestic walls from the resort. Ah the blue sky - no crayon color matches it!! Dinner was delicious & an order of the nachos for an afternoon snack exhilarated the taste buds. From check in until departure every staff member treated us courteously. Daniel was especially service oriented & professional as he brought us our next round(s) of cocktails at View 180 patio. So hard to tear yourself away from the daytime beauty but then we had the dark sky of the nighttime for Bright Star gazing. My second visit to Enchantment & it is still enchanting!! Highly recommend it.
Beautiful resort and felt taken care of from every hospitality aspect We enjoyed the hike is just off the property. They came with amazing views and we even got to see a snake! We took the bikes out of property and enjoyed getting to see some of the nearby area.
Beautiful and Peaceful!! The staff was incredibly friendly, everything was easy to get to and from the resort, such as trails, activities, shopping and eats. The views on the resort grounds are stunning and the spa is absolutely amazing. Definitely take one or more of the Pink Jeep tours on site, but signing up for any excursion was easy and convienent. It was hard to leave and I will definitely return!
It is rare to find a place wear all my children are equally happy and entertained! We found that at Enchantment! There was so much to do at and around the resort, we hardly had to leave! There were wildlife exhibits, stargazing, watercolor classes and more, all provided by the resort! The food was wonderful, one of the best meals I've had! The pool area was amazing with ping pong and fuse ball close by. And you cant beat the view of the beautiful red rocks. We hope to come back very soon!
