Come in from the Arizona heat to an oasis-like atrium—cool red and hand-painted tile work, fountain fixtures, plenty of greenery. A studied staff greets you and shows you to your spacious and vibrantly decorated room. At night, the sky comes alive—stargaze on the rooftop terrace.
Design is inspired by Andalusia and North Africa. Look for 500-year-old Tunisian gates in the courtyard, and note that the centuries-old clay pots and wrought-iron details are from North African estates. The rooms have pillow-top mattresses, and lambs-wool throws for chilly desert nights.
Embracing the serene beauty of the desert
The Spa and Spa Suites are separate from the rest of the hotel – some Spa Suites have soaking tubs with views of the red rocks. The zen-like Tranquility Room, with soft neutral tones, comes quipped with a lovely garden.
Particle physics, Native American ceremonies, and the supernatural have all been invoked to explain why certain spots amongst the red rocks just make you feel really, really good. Vortex sites, so-called since the 1980s, are areas that are considered to be conducive to prayer, meditation and healing. Tours are available.
Note: The Sedona Rouge is currently adding a new two-story building, gardens and an outdoor venue while preserving the Sedona red rock views. Work hours will be limited to Monday— Friday from 8am to 5pm, to be completed late 2015. The hotel Lush gardens and an outdoor venue will be included in the expansion, all while preserving the Sedona red rock views. Work hours will be limited to Monday thru Friday from 8am to 5pm. We anticipates very minor guest inconvenience.
