THE FULLEST Guide to Sedona
You’ve heard about its mystical energy vortexes, red rock splendor, and organic foodie havens. We got some serious insider info thanks to THE FULLEST Podcast guest and forever friend, Summer Sanders. Check out her local picks from hikes to healers.
Set on 70 acres of panoramic natural terrain and located in the spiritual heart of Sedona, Enchantment Resort lives up to its name. Surrounded by the towering red rock walls of Boynton Canyon, it combines the rugged grandeur of the Southwest landscape, Native American culture, and caters to the adventurers and leisure lovers. All the rooms are stunning but if you’re looking to splash out, book one of their suites that are decorated in rich earth tones, high wood beamed ceilings, and include a beehive fireplace.
Okay, it’s not yet open but we’re beyond excited for Sedona’s first landscape hotel. The first of its kind in North America, it’s uniquely designed to blend into the mystical red rocks of Sedona through its minimalist atriums that are built with glass and rust-colored metals. Developed and owned by a Sedona family, it’s being built with a deep reverence for the land through sustainable, organic architecture.
Stunningly situated on the banks of Oak Creek — and accompanied by nature’s soundtrack of babbling brooks, chirping birds, and rustling in the trees — L’Auberge’s creekside cottages feature wood-burning fireplaces and spacious private decks. Their restaurant also offers creek-inspired fare and we strongly recommend their Mindful Dining experience.
Intentionally calming interiors, stunning indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, a full kitchen, and views of the sunrise and sunset make this Summer’s favorite AirBnb. It’s also perched on one of Sedona’s vortexes, perhaps explaining why this house’s feng shui just feels good.
There are so many hiking trails, it’s worth stopping at the visitors center to get free maps and directions to unique places…but a few favorites are Cathedral, West Fork, and Devil’s Bridge! Bring more water than you think! Also check out the local parks, Sunset and Posse, and don’t miss Red Rock Crossing!
