Every twosome can benefit from a romantic getaway. But how about coupling that getaway with a spiritual pick-me-up? If your answer is yes (and why wouldn’t it be?) then as soon as humanly possible transport yourselves to Enchantment Resort in Sedona, easily the best Sedona resort for couples. When you’re looking for a romantic getaway in Sedona, this resort tops the list.
How couples will benefit from a trip to Enchantment Resort Sedona
Located halfway between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon, Sedona, according to indigenous lore, is the birthplace of man- and woman-kind. The region possesses an awe-inspiring grandeur that has led it to be tabbed among the most beautiful places in the country. Known as red rock country, Enchantment’s spectacular location surrounded by sandstone formations in deep reds, oranges and even pinks, is enough to take your breath away.
There is something extra: “Vortexes” saturating the area are said to radiate electromagnetic waves. These waves promote a feeling of mystical wonder that can help the two of you regain that: “we’re totally connected to each other” feeling. Whether you can only spare the time for a weekend getaway or a longer stay, the energy will affect you in a positive and profound way so long as you’re ready to let it in.
The best place to begin your inner and outer journeys on your Sedona couples getaway is at Mii amo spa, (a Native American word for “journey”). Nestled inside the red rock haven of Boynton Canyon, this Sedona spa is adjacent to Enchantment Resort, your home base for this romantic stay in Sedona. All spa services offered at Mii amo are available to Enchantment guests. This alone is a fabulous reason for couples to choose Enchantment.
Mii amo Spa
Each morning you can set your intentions for the day (i.e.: “we will really listen to one another”) inside a “kiva-like” meditation space called the Crystal Grotto. However, every aspect of this spa promotes a feeling of oneness, love and being in the moment. You don’t even need to book a spa treatment to capture the healing magic of this place. Step outside arm in arm and watch the constantly shifting light over the rocks, providing a view that offers something fresh whenever you look. If that isn’t a metaphor for relationships, what is?
During this Mii amo/Enchantment Resort idyll, stretch your definition of spa treatments by booking an “Inner Quest” or an intuitive massage. The former connects you to the wisdom of the Native Indian Elders while the latter seeks to disconnect you from fear and negative patterns.
The guest rooms
The romantic charms of Enchantment extend well beyond the spa. Its location alone is ideal for connecting with the one you love. This resort at the base of Boynton Canyon in Red Rock Country is truly an escape from it all and a place to set aside the frenetic energy of everyday life. And you don’t have to participate in spa activities to get in touch with the moving spiritual and natural world of this almost magical setting.
You don’t even ever have to leave your private casita or suite to appreciate this spectacular location – and each other – at this romantic hotel in Sedona. All guest rooms have private balconies or patios. If gazing into the deep reds and oranges of the canyon landscape and watching the desert wildlife pass by is your idea of couple time, then the resort will cater to your in-room whims.
Enchantment Sedona amenities
This romantic resort offers rooms in every configuration from a standard king to two-bedroom casitas and even casitas with private pools. And of course, all offer unforgettable red rock views.
Enchantment’s rooms offer all the upscale resort amenities you would expect like plush linens and couples robes. There is WIFI throughout the resort property and, should you choose to leave your room on this romantic Sedona getaway, there are guided labyrinth walks, croquet and pickle ball courts and an adults-only swimming pool.
You will need to eat at some point on your romantic Arizona getaway. And Enchantment has thought carefully of that, too. The resort does offer in-room dining, so think breakfast in bed. But the restaurant Che Ah Chi is considered by many to be Sedona’s most romantic restaurant. All of the hotel’s dining spots offer spectacular canyon views that can only enhance what is a couples retreat opportunity of a lifetime.
Romantic restaurants in Sedona
If your hunger cravings give you an urge to venture outside of the resort, another popular Sedona restaurant known for romantic dining is found at L’Auberge de Sedona. The resort’s restaurant Cress on Oak Creek, offers fine dining with a focus on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. The outdoor dining area overlooks Oak Creek and offers a stunning and lush change from the painted landscape of red rocks. And Cress is considered not only one of the most romantic restaurants in Sedona, but it is also one of the top culinary destinations, so it may help you satisfy many appetites.
If Italian cuisine tugs at your heartstrings, then you shouldn’t miss a visit to Dahl & Diluca. This romantically-lit restaurant features freshly made pastas in rustic preparations along with richly decadent, Italian desserts. Note before you go that this white tablecloth restaurant does have a dress code, so be sure to look smart as you gaze into your lovers’ eyes over glasses of bubbly from the award-winning wine list.
If a little wine tasting is your idea of a romantic evening, then you may want to check out Decanters Tasting Room for a global selection of wines and grazing boards. The restaurant offers a nice selection of Arizona wines as well as a few dozen wines from other regions of the world. There are monthly red and white wine flights featuring a different wine region each month. Charcuterie and sandwiches round out the menu. They do occasionally offer live music to add to the ambiance. But they also regularly hold theme nights that may not be so romance-friendly such as bingo night. Be sure to check their schedule before planning your visit.
Things for couples to do in Sedona
Sedona is not only spiritual country, it is a place for adventurers. Although this resort is known for looking after your every need, if you and your lover like to get your hearts racing outside of the bedroom, the area around Sedona has so much to offer. The staff at Enchantment will be happy to help you plan date ideas in Sedona that fit your excitement level. Below are a few of the options to consider that are suitable for couples’ experiences. All of these adventures can be arranged directly through the hotel.
Hiking Sedona’s red rocks
Few activities provide a more spiritual bonding experience than hiking, and Sedona’s bounty includes over 100 designated trails in the Coconino National Forest.
The Hike House can help you choose the trails that best suit your needs. Prepare for crystal clear creeks, magical forests, cool canyons and of course towering red rocks. To up the soul-searching ante, Vortex Yoga Hiking can offer you a truly mind-blowing way to channel the area’s energy.
Experiencing the Verde River (and wine)
There is energy and magic on the water surrounding Sedona as well. The staff at Enchantment Resort can help you schedule a ‘Water to Wine Kayaking Adventure’ on the Verde River. Cottonwood, Sycamores and sage dot the banks as you make your way toward the Alcantara Vineyards. Here your paddling efforts will be rewarded with tastings of Arizona-grown wines from many of Europe’s noble grapes to be savored while drinking in the rolling hills surrounding the vineyard.
Take a quick flight to the Grand Canyon
It would be a crime against your relationship to end this journey of reconnecting without visiting one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Luckily, Enchantment’s staff can help you plan a once-in-a-lifetime visit to this spectacular site. Sedona Sky Treks can ferry you via a one-hour Cessna ride to Grand Canyon West. Transfer to a helicopter for a thrilling 3200-foot descent to the bottom of the Canyon. The views you’ll be privy to will be imprinted in your brains forever, creating a powerful shared memory you can access for the rest of your lives.
