Sedona is desert town near Flagstaff that’s surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls and pine forests. It’s noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community, and vortex energy.
An artsy eclectic hotel, the Adobe Grand Villas, is off the main road. There’s an arched entrance with a fountain, well-maintained gardens with wrought iron sculptures spread throughout the property. Centered on the main building is the serene swimming pool and hot tub.
Guests are welcome into a homey reception living room area complete with a fresh coffee and beverage bar set-up with refreshments readily available and movies to borrow. Breakfast is included in the dining room between 8:30-10am. The hotel will serve a meal in the guest’s villa, and/or do its best to accommodate other needs. Hors d’oeuvres are offered between 4-pm-5pm daily.
Walkways lead guests to the 16 ample-sized villas, each with two gas fireplaces. The rooms are individually designed by the original owners’ craftsman son. The bathrooms are massive as well, with custom-made showers, double-vanities, lighting fixtures and mirror frames.
The hospitality continues with fresh-made bread daily in your room and fully stocked snacks and drinks. The beds and pillows are plush and comfortable. Amenities continue with robes and slippers, a make-up mirror and even extra blankets. Turn down service is also provided.
The Adobe Grand Villa’s Boutique Spa is 98% organic, using medicinal grade essential oils, lotions and potions that are pure and natural. The Spa has a variety of unique single, couple and In-Room spa experiences, foot reflexology, hot stone massages, medicinal aromatherapy massages, and Crystals of Light, Multi-Dimensional, Inter-Dimensional healing tools, mud mask facials, CranioSacral light-touch therapy and Reiki massages.
