My husband and I chose the Amara as our base during a 4 day stay in Sedona. We loved the property. The room was big, clean, and equipped with a large balcony. We had a room on the river side of the property and I loved the privacy on the "less expensive side". The hotel restaurant and bar are great....

Thank you, Stm288! So glad you loved our resort! In regards to kids on property, this 'spring break' period seems to be the only time in Sedona when you'll see that. For the bulk of the year, we mainly see active adults hitting the trails and pool w/o a kid in sight. Hopefully we can welcome you back another time...

This was not my first trip to Sedona, but my first time staying at this hotel. My husband and I were here for a quick trip, so location was the most important factor in booking a hotel. This hotel hits the mark in that regard, as you can easily walk to shopping, restaurants and jeep tour locations. They also have...

This is our second stay at the Amara and it did not disappoint. Very nice, trendy hotel but not over the top. Great pool/courtyard, great massage at the spa, and wonderful breakfast. Only complaint is the bathroom layout. A bit odd that the mirror is not centered over the sink, making it impossible for two people to easily share the...

Well, welcome back! Thank you again for choosing to stay with us. Yes, those pesky bathroom mirrors are a bit oddly placed... certainly something we will look at changing with possible future modifications. We hope to see you again soon!

We took our 17 year old to Sedona for spring break. The Amara resort had one of the best views. I could have sat on the deck or in the pool looking at the view for the entire day. The service might not be completely polished but the staff is very nice and tries hard to accommodate your wishes. In...

This hotel is located in a little corner of paradise at the heart of Sedona with its own pool, fire pits, bar areas looking up to the stunning "red beauties" :) My first visit and I welcomed the excellence service and after care, the modern spa feel, the great breakfasts and delicious wines and cocktails.

This is a beautiful, comfortable, friendly resort with a nice spa, restaurant, pool and fire pit areas. There was complimentary valet and a van that will take you/pick you up within 1 mile (which includes some hikes, restaurants, shopping and even a CVS).

So close to perfect! I really wish we had more flexibility to move you to a room that better suited your needs. This prime-season can often make that tough... Please do not hesitate to reach out if you are ever returning to the area. I would love to ensure the perfect location next time around! Thank you.
