As i searched for places to stay in Sedona there were 2 things that drew me to the Amara, one was the positive reviews and the second was the Kimpton name. Although i have only stayed in one Kimpton Hotel (in New York City) i was well aware of what the brand was all about and the Amara is certainly a place that not only met but exceeded my expectations.
Firstly about the establishment: for those that want seclusion but to be close to the quant atmosphere of the town i can think of nowhere better. The rooms were spotless, well equipped, it has a great pool with tented cabanas, fire pits with outdoor heated dining tables. The spa is a great place to relax. The restaurant has great food (the shrimp nachos are simply wonderful) and the service was impeccable to the point that most times multiple staff placed our orders on the table and removed them simultaneously - a nice touch but rarely done even in expensive restaurants who have the habit of taking a persons plate when the last morsel is being popped into your mouth. The views to the rear of the red rocks and the creek running below add to the setting. The valet parking and shuttle to local spots was also a very nice touch.
Lastly i have to make a comment about the staff: I have stayed at hotels around the world but as a group it would be hard to find a more pleasant and helpful team, in particular J.B., Emily and Joey. Thanks Amara, as Arnie says "We will be back".
