This summer, Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa invites guests to escape the heat and head to Sedona for cooler temperatures and endless summer fun with discounted stays, a spa treatment to harness the metaphysical energy of the area and nightly stargazing amidst the majestic red rocks.
Sedona is 10 to 15 degrees cooler than Phoenix during the summer months, which makes Amara the perfect summer getaway that is less than a two-hour drive from the Valley. Along with the Escape the Heat stay package starting from $260 per night, guests can enjoy many activities to take full advantage of the outdoor grass courtyard that overlooks the infinity-edge saltwater pool and the iconic Cleopatra Red Rock Formation in perfect view. Lawn games like cornhole and bocce ball are available to guests daily and set the stage for the resort’s complimentary nightly social hour from 5pm until 6pm.
Every Friday and Saturday night from Memorial Day through Labor Day, guests can take full advantage of Sedona’s rare “Dark Sky Designation” with the resort’s “Stargazing & S’mores”. A local astronomy expert is on-hand to guide guests through the solar system via iPads with a stargazing app. Complimentary s’mores kits are provided for toasting marshmallows around the outdoor fire pits and blankets are available to bundle up on chilly nights.

Also available now through Labor Day is Amara Spa’s newest treatment Monsoon Meditation. Many travelers head to Sedona to reconnect spiritually to the local environment and harness the metaphysical energy of the area for which Sedona has become famous. Monsoon Meditation embraces this spirit by using rose quartz crystals found within Sedona’s vortexes to open heart chakras to unconditional love and to aid in emotional healing and uses massage oils rich with native ingredients that envelop the aroma of the Verde Valley, where Sedona is located.
With six treatment rooms, the full-service Amara Spa offers massages, facials, body treatments, foot and hand rituals, nail services and a variety of perfectly paired spa packages. Amara Spa also boasts a private yoga studio with complimentary daily classes for resort guests, eucalyptus steam rooms, men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers and a retail boutique selling all-natural products.
