Trip Report Enchantment Resort (Mii Amo spa) trip review

Jump to last reply

Overall I have mixed feelings about this place. I stayed in a Junior Suite with the spa package for four nights, which included a treatment per day for my wife and I at the Mii Amo spa (8 total treatments = 4 days * 2 people).

1) For my money, this place was way too pricey. At around $700-800 per night I just don't think it was worth it. Given treatments cost about $150 each (or $300 per day included in the room price) the room was about $400-500. I seriously don't think this room was worth the cost. The terrace overlooked a scrub tree, with a turn-your-head-to-the-side view of the canyon. The road was right behind the terrace and things like electric equipment. The room itself was large, with a southwest motif and with furnishings / windows I do not feel justified the cost of the room.

2) the spa was great. In my view, the Mii Amo spa is the only reason to come here. This place had the decor / styling / furnishings reflective of a high end experience. Luckily, we were able to spend as much time here as we liked. The pool was lovely and our treatments were wonderful. The deep tissue massage was my favorite, but the hydrotherapy was a total dud.

The food here was very pricey and was very much 'spa food'. $35 for a 225 calorie piece of protein; that kind of thing. We were spending around $300 per day on food at the spa, and I would have preferred some normal food. My wife, who is very thin and athletic, loved the meals. Loved them.

3) enjoy your activities, and book them early, before you arrive. We loved the mountain biking class, and I even more preferred taking the bike out by myself, without a guide. The fitness classes are very laid back. Wife did not enjoy this aspect as she is used to serious, quality fitness classes in Manhattan. We opted to skip the group hike, which was over booked, and instead hike ourselves, which was totally awesome.

Loved loved Elote Cafe in Sedona. Highly recommended southwest / Mexican food with long lines and waits for a table.

I was surprised by the lack of any sort of concentrated, 'walking' downtown in Sedona and all the new age stuff was kind of cheesy.

Anyway, we ended up having a really relaxing vacation. But I feel this place is overpriced, and I wont be going back.
