Located in the heart of Sedona
This resort charges an expensive daily resort fee

Located just north of the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, the Kimpton Amara Resort & Spa features a more contemporary atmosphere than other Sedona resorts. Guest rooms are outfitted in stylish furniture and vibrant colors that mirror the nearby Red Rocks, and all accommodations are decked out in pillow-top mattresses, spa-quality bath amenities and patios or balconies. Visitors appreciate the resort's convenient location and the views of beloved landmarks like Snoopy Rock, and the hotel concierge can help arrange opportunities to explore the area by Jeep, on horseback or on foot. The Amara's facilities also earn high marks from visitors, who rave about the views from the outdoor infinity pool and the on-site restaurant. What's more, since this property is part of the Kimpton brand, IHG Rewards Club members can earn and redeem perks here. Just beware of the pricey daily resort fee when you book your stay at this resort.

The contemporary design can feel a little overdone, but the grounds are beautiful, with an infinity pool overlooking the red rock pillars for which the area is known.



You might not expect to find a boutique hotel in small, outdoorsy Sedona, but at the Amara, next to gurgling Oak Creek, sleek rooms deviate from the usual Sedona look, with low-slung beds and work desks with ergonomic seating.



The entire property is surrounded by those spectacular Sedona vistas, but if you're in the mood for something a little less sweeping in scale, you can retreat to the grassy interior courtyard at the center of the property.
