We stayed in Sedona for 4 nights, wanting a mix of local activities and relaxation. The Amara was the perfect place for the relaxation. The room was great, it was comfortable and large with plenty of closet space, a big empty fridge. The swimming pool was spectacular, one of the most beautiful and enjoyable pools I've ever been to.

We go to Sedona a few times a year and have always stayed at enchantment resort. However that hotel has gone way down in my estimation and is living off of past glories. Their service does not live up to the hype.so we tried the Asmara,sight unseen, and it was the most pleasant experience. It is located in the middle... More

I'm a travel agent who books tons of hotels for my clients. I chose this hotel because it is clearly the most luxurious one in the area. Unfortunately, where it shines in beauty, it lacks in customer service. I booked my clients and made special requests for them to have a specific view and early check in along with a... More

This property has it all: great service, beautiful setting and nice touches to make you feel like you are really being pampered (like free happy hour, coffee & tea service in AM and even trail mix for hikers). I took advantage of their free bike share and did a few local rides on a nicely equipped Trek MTN bike. Our... More

Excellent location! Who could resist eating breakfast outside??? The area is beautiful. Staff was friendly and helpful. Daughter and I took advantage of the yoga class. We even had a pet goldfish visit us for a couple of days.

All of the Kimpton properties have charm. This particular location does a fantastic job embracing the Sedona culture. All of the staff were very helpful, the facilities are clean, and the views from the patio/pool are great. My only comment, would be to confirm the view from your room.

Very friendly good food and perfectly located for uptown Sedona. Comfortable rooms and complimentary drinks at various points in the day. Beautiful setting. Loved it. The pool is small but a wonderful place to cool off. Wonderfully looked after staff very helpful. It's a perfect boutique hotel for those looking for something extra

The staff were amazing! Ryan the one manger went above and beyond to make sure our stay was the best it could be. We visited the spa for a couples massage, James and Jill worked wonders and even surprised us with a toast of sparkling cider for our honeymoon. Make sure you try the restaurant they have great food.
