I have just finished up a long weekend at Amara with my MIL and there is so much I could say, but here is the cliff notes version! First of all, beautiful hotel with a stunning view. Clean, comfortable rooms. Loved the hot tub in the evening (even in December). The location was also perfect for exploring, so much in...

I was pleasantly surprised. It looks like Kimpton took this property over and made it its own. And they've done a great job. It is however, a little hidden, so arrival is tricky down what I thought was a private winding road. There are a few parking lots off to each side so I wasn't exactly sure that I was...

We stayed three nights here for a group retreat. The location is very good: short uphill walk to main street restaurants and shops. The street the Amara Resort is on is more like an alley. We missed it the first time, thinking it was just a driveway (which it pretty much is) and not a road. They are able to...

Nice spot to stay in Sedona. The spa is simply a hot tub and heated pool + daytime yoga. Easy place to relax away from Main Street which is a short walk up the hill. Good good and service View is worth it!

I love the Kimpton Hotels. Boutique in nature, fabulous staff from top to bottom. The Amara is very dog friendly. Is walking distance to all of the shops although they will shuttle you to anything within a 1 mile readious.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at The Amara. We were Very Happy with this hotel 😊. Super friendly knowledgeable staff, good location, clean comfortable room, great view, nice outdoor courtyard, nice outdoor jacuzzi, beautiful infinity pool. This hotel borders the Oak Creek. You can easily walk along the creek side from here. So pretty! This hotel also offers...

There are four main aspects we loved about this hotel/spa. I describe them below. Still, I must warn those of you who, like me, have to work during your vacations, the hotel lacks a business center. It does have free internet if you join their free email service. Now for what our family of four loved about the Amara: 1)...

We had such a wonderful experience at Amara. Tia our concierge set us up with a balloon ride & jeep tour before we even got there. She and Des were both super helpful and friendly every time we chatted with them. All of the valet crew were so nice and so quick to get us in and out without any...

Pros: Good location near shopping and restaurants. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel's restaurant was really very good. Valet parking is included in the resort fee. Our room was well-laid out (electric plugs were where they should be, plenty of lighting, etc). The room was clean and contemporary. Cons: The loud fire alarm went off at the resort at 640am...

We just returned from a 5 night stay and miss it already. Perfectly located, you can easily walk to local restaurants and shops. There is a shuttle (free) from the hotel that will take you anywhere in a 1 mile radius. We found all staff knowledgeable about the area, all recommendations we received were honest and dead on.
