“Loved it”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We stayed here on our annual girls' trip and loved it. The pool area is beautiful, the service was outstanding and the room was very comfortable. The staff had good recommendations and were very accommodating in everything we needed. We used our AAA discount; otherwise it was a bit out of our price range. The spa was also quite nice. If you're looking for a hotel/resort where you can actually stay on premises to swim, eat, relax - this is a good place!

My wife and I love visiting Sedona and from time to time will try different hotels. On our most recent visit we decided to see what the Amara resort is like. It truly is tucked away off the main drag in Sedona. You have to look for it and drive down an long drive to arrive. After all it is right up against Oak Creek. The staff are friendly and responsive. The room was sizeable but the furniture was probably a little too dark and stark for my taste. There is a free evening wine hour and a coffee bar in the morning. We enjoyed putting on our robes getting some coffee and walking back to the room to overlook the creek and some lovely Sedona red rock views. That was the highlight of the location.

Be aware that because it is tucked away walking up to the main drag is a little unusual. There did not appear to be a direct way other than walking through the long drive way by parking lots and entrances. If you do it you will know what I mean.

This is the second time staying here. Business this time but with my wife and for children last time. Each stay was equally wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable and plenty spacious. The grounds are very nice and everything is spotless. The restaurant is worth a try. If the weather is good, I recommend eating outside. The staff was warm and friendly. It is a very inviting place, luxurious but not over the top. Very close to everything in downtown Sedona but feels ver secluded and quiet. You can walk to most everything, but because it is down a hill and next to a wonderful bubbling creek, you feel all alone. Even a free glass of wine at check in.

This hotel is located right on the Oak Creek below a beautiful red rock formation; the pictures on the website do it justice. The infinity salt water pool is awesome. The rooms are lovely and immaculate, but if you go smaller than a suite don't let them charge you too much...they aren't worth more than $200/night. The beds are heavenly.
The staff were the best part of the experience. Unlike the nearby L'Auberge, the Amara staff went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs, whether it be a special martini, spa appointments, or a dvd rental. There is complimentary coffee every morning and wine at 5pm.
Also, they have free yoga every morning!

Room Tip: Take a suite.

As soon as you drive into Sedona you are greeted by beautiful sights, so we were really hoping our accomodations would offer beautiful views, it did not dissapoint. Though this resort is in the middle of the busy Uptown shopping and tourist district it is very quiet even when walking the gorgeous grounds of this resort. The staff were very friendly and accomodating, the spa is amazing also we were treated with special attention during our massages and facial ( mine only my husband passed on that). This trip is our first one since being married and we saved so that we could vacation in style and comfort and Amara Resort provided that for us in spades! Thank you!

Room Tip: I think any room you have in this resort will be amazing.

To start off, I think this hotel has a really amazing view. Especially when you're in the morning outside near the pool enjoying your breakfast, which by the way is very nice. All the staff is extremely helpfull. We arrived in at a rainy day and the booking we made via another travelsite wasn't known in their booking system. The staff was extremely helpfull to solve our problem and luckily there still was a room free.

I think however that the rooms are a thing which could use some improvement for this resort. They seem to become a bit outdated for my tastings. Especially when you notice the price asked for the rooms for a night stay I did expected some more luxury and stylish rooms. However all amenities were available. Room sure is very spacious. Sedona is a great place to relax for a couple of days.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the pool. Rooms on the outside of the resort might be facing the parking lo...

I'm a huge fan of Kimpton's. I actively seek them out. The best thing about Kimpton's is the level of service. I realize that this Hotel just switched over but the service didn't seem to be at the level of perfection that I expect of my favourite chain. It wasn't bad mind you, just not perfect. The property itself is lovely. The rooms are well appointed. The pool area however is totally inadequate for a property of this size and calibre.
