“The best by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A rare hidden gem amongst stunning red rocks, set beside a rippling creek - this hotel is the best we have been in. Rooms are luxurious, arty; facilities outstanding (infinity pool, fire pits, candle lit terrace; food - nutritious and delicious; service - exceptional. We spent our 5th wedding anniversary here and were making plans to retire there! An unforgettable time made even more special by the hotel staff.

Room Tip: If poolside be aware of evening activities, though the view is stunning.

We love Kimpton properties and this one was no exception. It was very clean and well decorated. We got a room on the creek. It was very nice to have the balcony and the sound of the water going by. The pool is nice, not huge but big enough to enjoy the water and the heat. We always enjoy the wine hour at 5. They also had some light bites to go with the wine. This property is just a short walk from the main area of town. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. I also recommend the spa here. Wow! Talk about amazing relaxation. They also offer yoga classes for free.

Room Tip: Near the creek

Greetings Alex S,
Thank you for being such loyal to Kimpton and we are thrilled that the Amara was such a hit. The location is perfect, close to the uptown shops and restaurants. The yoga classes are a great way to start the day and the instructors are top notch. Wine hour is always hit as well. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

Excellent and friendly service, comfortable room, beautiful view, delicious and convenient restaurant within hotel, valet parking, local shuttle service, and great uptown location within walking distance of shops and food. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay in Sedona for a weekend get away. Kimpton hotels rock, once again!

Great to hear you are such big supporter of Kimpton properties and that the Amara was incredible. We think you rock! The shuttle within a mile of the property lets you leave the driving to us while you enjoy your evening. The uptown shops and restaurants are within walking distance or the valet team can take to you the top of the hill as well. SALTROCK restaurant is a “can’t miss” with the delicious food, amazing cocktails, and incredible views.

Amara is a wonderful experience, especially for East coast winter-weary visitors. All personnel went out of their way to make our stay relaxing. This resort sits in a very cozy little nook yet is very close to uptown Sedona shops and restaurants. Cocktail hour on the lawn was truly a highlight!

Room Tip: Most rooms have red lock views!

Greetings Lori C,
I love hearing that you felt pampered and well taken care of by the entire team. Daily wine hour is a highlight for everyone including those of us that are fortunate enough to host it. As I have said many times before, it is the best hour of my week. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

The Kimpton brand is synonymous with high quality properties in amazing locations, and the Amara Resort did not disappoint. The room had stunning views, was spacious and comfortable, and came with amenities I never expected. The resort has a host of activities like various yoga classes, a well appointed gym, and concierge service for anything else you can think of. The restaurant has possibly one of the most beautiful views in Sedona, and the staff is top notch. I'm looking forward to returning to Sedona and staying here again.

Greetings Traveler Jenn,
It is great hearing that the Amara stacks up with our other amazing Kimpton properties. Yoga classes are a great way to start your day and we have some of the most incredible instructors to lead them. Yes the views in Sedona are breath taking and our courtyard and patios allow you to soak them in while enjoying a beverage or meal as well. Thank you for the kind words about the staff here; they greatly appreciate the recognition.

We loved the Amara! Nestled along a creek in touristy uptown Sedona, it manages to feel like a private oasis. There are views of the Red Rocks from the central courtyard and infinity pool. The wine hour is fun way to meet other guests and play lawn games. There is free coffee and yoga in the spa every morning. Overall, a wonderful stay!!!

Thank you for spending your weekend getaway with us. The wine hour is a favorite amongst the guests and staff alike. Coffee and tea are available complimentary in the lobby daily from 5:30AM until 9am as well. Morning yoga is a great way to kick off your day. We hope you are planning your next weekend getaway with us.

This is one of the best hotels in Sedona. Beautiful view, quiet yet centrally located. Rooms are nice, service excellent. The only negative was the jacuzzi which was broken all three days we were there. We did not get a discount on the resort fee. The jacuzzi would have been nice as the weather was rather cool for the season.

Greetings Reudi S,
“Best hotel in Sedona….” that is very high praise. The team appreciates the recognition as well. The Jacuzzi has been fixed and is up and running; my apologies for it being down during your stay. It is a great reason to come back and see us. Thank you for sharing your experience.
