With cool weather and crystal-clear blue skies, there’s no better time to explore Sedona than in the spring and Amara Resort and Spa is providing visitors with the perfect opportunity to ignite their adventurous sides with its relaunched Sedona Adventure Package and rates starting from $357/night.
Located in the heart of Uptown Sedona, new and returning guests will fall in love with Amara’s refreshed “tree-lodge” aesthetic that incorporates the five elements of nature throughout the guestrooms, suites and common spaces following the resort’s recent multimillion-dollar, property-wide renovation. As cozy as the resort is, Amara’s prime location still encourages guests to get out and spend the day traversing through the town’s shops and restaurants before heading back to lounge in the heated-infinity edge pool while gazing out at the iconic Cleopatra and Snoopy Rocks.
Visitors can bask in the cool spring weather while dining al fresco at Amara’s signature restaurant, SaltRock Southwest Kitchen, which features some of the most coveted views in Sedona from the restaurant’s expansive patio. Led by Executive Chef David Duncan, SaltRock’s modern, Southwestern menu features fresh and seasonal ingredients inspired by the Verde Valley. Guests can enjoy dishes such as the Pork Osso Bucco with slow braised pork shank, charred corn polenta, sautéed asparagus, manchamantel mole and pickled mushrooms; the Tiger Shrimp Tamal with garlic lime butter, charred corn polenta, crispy kale and chimichurri oil; or the Butternut Squash Relleno with roasted poblano pepper, grilled button-onion, golden raisins, pepitas, Oaxaca cheese and forbidden black rice.
SaltRock’s award-winning craft cocktail program, led by Assistant Director of Food and Beverage Ardi Dulaku, features the most extensive selection of agave spirits in town along with libations that complement Sedona’s vibrant atmosphere. Guests can pair their dish with innovative cocktails such as the Vortex Therapy with turmeric infused vodka, Campari, passion fruit, organic agave, lemon, inner peace flower elixir and pink peppercorn; the Sun Devil Margarita with blanco tequila, passion fruit, Luxardo Maraschino, chipotle, lime and a spiced salt rim; or the Botanical Bee with Suncliffe Arizona Gin, ginger-thyme infused honey and lemon.
For those looking to uncover all of the secrets of the fabled vortexes or wander along one of the countless hikes the Red Rock Country has to offer, visitors can reward their hard work with a trip to the award-winning Amara Spa to reset and relax. Guests can unwind while being pampered from head to toe with one of the spa’s Sedona-centric treatments such as the Rain Dance Massage, which features lavender, rosemary and sage oils.
