Once a sleepy hippie getaway, Sedona has become more upscale as the years have passed, stretching beyond healing crystals, energy vortices, and nonstop New Ageyness. Eschewing the region’s oft-overdone adobe motif, the wood hunting lodge and cottages at L’Auberge de Sedona feel more modern than traditionally Southwestern. Hugging a gurgling creek in a leafy valley, the resort sits on 11 acres of land and has enviable views of the majestic red rocks of central Arizona. Guests can choose from Garden, Vista and Creekside Cottages, each with its own fireplace (lit by the staff) and outdoor showers. Twenty-one rooms are also available in the hunting lodge–style main building, though they’re a bit smaller. The décor is country-chic, with down bedding, plank floors, and a private patio or balcony. One particularly bright spot is the resort’s award-winning L’Auberge Restaurant on Oak Creek, which serves up seasonal dishes by huge windows or outdoors along the leafy creek (weather permitting). A full-fledged spa offers integrated energy therapy treatments, and it’s worth having one creekside. The staff is always helpful for arranging activities, and they’ll even act as chauffeurs and take guests in electric cars to nearby restaurants, shops and galleries. Other thoughtful programming includes telescope stargazing evenings three times a week with a professional astronomer, daily yoga, and guided meditations.
In the Area
Sedona is a major center for massage therapists, yoga instructors, crystal healers and New Age practitioners. Start with a treatment, or two, at the resort, and later on receive a “guided visualization” at the well-known Red Rock Healing Arts Center in town. Tucked under crimson red rock walls, the well-preserved Sinagua cliff dwellings at the Palatki Heritage Site are a short drive from Sedona. Although there are stunning panoramas everywhere you turn in Sedona, the best drive for views is along (the sometimes rough) Schnebly Hill Road, which climbs into the red rocks east of town. Explore Sedona’s mystical side with a New Age–flavored tour of the area’s geographical vortex sites.
How to Get There
Great hotel, rare to find! Super attentive and amazing personnel! Highly recommendedBeautiful location by the creek, clean cozy rooms, professional service.Great great restaurant Will be back again!
Great visit to Sedona and stay at L'Auberge. Staff was outstanding in all respects - front desk, valets, housekeeping, restaurants. Great location, beautiful views from the upper cottages; well managed and maintained property. Expensive, but overall quality was excellent.
The hotel is beautifully located by a creek which is a very relaxing and beautiful setting. The service by the staff was truly exceptional! And the best part was the restaurant which served delicious food for breakfast and dinner and had a beautiful view of the creek as well! We would definitely go back there again!
My wife and I stayed for 4 nights to celebrate our 30 year anniversary and the team at L’Auberge certainly made every effort to make sure we were well taken care of. Megan and Crystal Thank you for the champagne, nice hand written card and sweets. Phil Thanks for building the cozy fire for us on our last night. Faith, JP, Rene and the rest of the staff Thanks for seeing to it we got hauled around in the house car anytime we felt like it. We are definitely planning to be back in the near future.
We have never in all our travels been treated so well. The valet is running to help you 24/7, they run a free service within 1 mile of the Resort so you don’t need your car for short trips, and the reservation folks are very knowledable. The Cress resturant service, presentation and food was out of this world great.
