Enchantment Resort Review

A few miles outside of town, serene Boynton Canyon is the setting for this luxurious resort and its world-class destination spa, Mii Amo; the rooms and suites are tucked into small, pueblo-style buildings, and accommodations come in many configurations: multiple bedrooms can be joined to create large, elaborate suites. All have beehive gas fireplaces, private decks, and superb views. Mii Amo Spa offers all-inclusive packages with separate rooms and suites in the spa complex, as well as myriad treatments and innovative spa cuisine.

2010 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award Winner

Mii Amo is a chic, modern destination spa cocooned within a chic, modern resort amid red rocks. It also has fantastic spa packages: three daily meals, all activities, and unheard-of two-daily 60- or 90-minute treatments. Therapies are classic and straightforward: Swedish and deep-tissue massage, clay and herbal wraps, oxygenating facials. Couples love the treatments for two, solo travelers love the reasonable single's supplement, and all guests love being able to book à la carte treatments.

    Hotel Details

    poor customer service, so many better places to stay

    We had the most measured expectations coming into staying at this place for spring break. It was one week, no specific plan other than to relax and enjoy the beautiful views with our 2 kids (3 & 8yo). It was ~$500 dollars a night but we figured a splurge would be worth it to have a carefree and relaxing visit. We asked specifically if our room would have a view and were told that it did. Upon arrival we checked into a casita that looked out onto a parking lot and bushes. It was one large room with no fridge, a real challenge for 2 adults and 2 kids. We called the front desk and were told there was nothing else they could switch us to. We finally arranged to switch into 2 adjoining rooms with a view 3 days into our trip and pay the additional expense (Adding many hundreds of dollars onto our total cost). At no point throughout this experience did the management (Ricardo and Morgan) offer anything additional to make up for the problems we encountered. A five dollar gift card to the bar would have made a difference. It was clear they just DO NOT CARE IF PEOPLE ARE SATISFIED. We’ve got the rocks, love it our leave it…. They even tried to charge us for a minifridge. Because wifi and cell service doesn’t work here we were limited in finding additional accommodations and ended up giving up and staying. In addition to this, we would leave from 9-3pm and come home to find our room unmade. Other issues: inattentive staff at restaurants, strangers in cowboy hats walking into our room, and leaking shower. The views are great in the surrounding areas but you don’t need to stay here to enjoy them. SKIP THIS PLACE overpriced, inattentive, house of blah!!! Thanks for making our vacation much more difficult than it should have been.

    Do Not Miss This Place

    the Enchantment Resort has everything a deluxe resort should have - gorgeous setting, large and comfortable rooms, attentive service, and a beautiful spa. the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. there are free bikes (caution though - the altitude might get you, going up even the slightest hill). fresh-squeezed OJ at your door in the morning. there's nothing to see in Sedona anyway, so don't worry about being 20 minutes outside of town.

    Enchantment Resort Review

    I have literally just returned from the Enchantment Resort and Mii amo Spa. The rooms have all been updated in a modern south western look. Quite comfortable with even better spa products as amenities. I had the very fresh cuisine in the Mii amo Spa restaurant and the Yavapi restaurant in the Resort- both were excellent and I eat for a living as a culinary travel writer! I'd say you need to go back as many capitol improvements have been made and more are on the horizon to elevate this to it's full potential. As such I can't yet give it a perfect score until they are complete but I slept on the softest sheets in a gorgeous room. The owner is the same but the management is now top notch and it shows!

    Enchantment Resort Review

    We were truly disappointed--the rooms are old & tired-iron was broken-remote on tv didn't work-linens were falling apart--food expensive and not up to par of a so called 1st class resort--awesome surroundings--they need to update!!!

    Serenity among the Red Rocks

    Tucked away in Boynton Canyon, this resort offers 360 degree views of the stunning red rocks. It is a short distance away from the bustle of town,
    peaceful and serene. Staff and accommodations are top notch. The resort has its own destination spa, 3 restaurants, heated pools, tennis courts,
    private access to hiking trails. We come to rejuvenate and are never disappointed.
