Nice spot to stay in Sedona. The spa is simply a hot tub and heated pool + daytime yoga. Easy place to relax away from Main Street which is a short walk up the hill. Good good and service View is worth it!

I love the Kimpton Hotels. Boutique in nature, fabulous staff from top to bottom. The Amara is very dog friendly. Is walking distance to all of the shops although they will shuttle you to anything within a 1 mile readious.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at The Amara. We were Very Happy with this hotel 😊. Super friendly knowledgeable staff, good location, clean comfortable room, great view, nice outdoor courtyard, nice outdoor jacuzzi, beautiful infinity pool. This hotel borders the Oak Creek.

There are four main aspects we loved about this hotel/spa. I describe them below. Still, I must warn those of you who, like me, have to work during your vacations, the hotel lacks a business center. It does have free internet if you join their free email service. Now for what our family of four loved about the Amara: 1)... More

We had such a wonderful experience at Amara. Tia our concierge set us up with a balloon ride & jeep tour before we even got there.

Pros: Good location near shopping and restaurants. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel's restaurant was really very good. Valet parking is included in the resort fee. Our room was well-laid out (electric plugs were where they should be, plenty of lighting, etc). The room was clean and contemporary. Cons: The loud fire alarm went off at the resort at 640am...

We just returned from a 5 night stay and miss it already. Perfectly located, you can easily walk to local restaurants and shops. There is a shuttle (free) from the hotel that will take you anywhere in a 1 mile radius. We found all staff knowledgeable about the area, all recommendations we received were honest and dead on.

Very elegant spa resort in lovely Sedona ... looks like a film set! Top dollar service and great food on the terrace. Town of Sedona is a real experience with lots of cutsie shops and restaurants. We had a lovely time here enjoying the local scene. Many nice restaurants. Really want to go back soon.

My husband and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Amara Resort. Initially we were hoping to have a red rock view from our room, but no rooms have views from the room. You do get a nice view from the main patio/pool area. The pool and hot tub were nice, but limited seating at the pool. The resort... More

We appreciate the recommendation! Our property is designed to take advantage of the red rock views mainly from our outdoor spaces were our guests tend to spend most of their time - Courtyard areas, restaurant, fire pits, pool area, etc. Hopefully you found a nice place to relax and enjoy the vista!
