Great Escape: Enchantment Spa
Enchantment Resort’s Mii amo at dusk
Fresh from a $25 million renovation, Enchantment—a secluded resort tucked inside Sedona, Arizona’s Boynton Canyon—is as well-suited for finding yourself through spiritual enlightenment as it is for losing yourself in sybaritic bliss. With hiking trails, tennis courts and an exhaustive schedule of daily activities, there’s plenty to occupy oneself with, of course—but if you’re in the mood for a mini vision-quest, the award-winning Mii amo spa near the property’s canyon-side entrance is where you’ll want to start. (“Mii amo” is a Native American phrase for “journey.”) The sprawling 24,000-square-foot adobe-brick and indigenous-wood building, with 20 treatment rooms and an indoor/outdoor pool, blends seamlessly into the landscape. The treatment menu is every bit as sprawling: more than 100 treatments, including unique offerings like a Flower Essence Bath and an Ayurvedic Dosha Balancing Wrap, both of which incorporate spiritual elements into a wellness routine with practical physical benefits.
View 180 patio
When you’ve come back down to Earth, you can enjoy refined organic fare at the Mii amo Cafe or venture uphill to the resort’s Clubhouse for a glass of something at View 180 or a Southwestern take on fine dining at Che-Ah-Chi. End the night on the expansive viewing deck of your suite after a meditative session in your deep-soak tub. It’s difficult to imagine a more elegant approach to enlightenment.
