Sedona has never been more red hot — pardon the pun. What was once a quiet spa and wellness destination, has become a vacation hot spot and social media fascination so popular that the Arizona town has implemented a sustainable tourism plan to protect the natural environment. Anyone who's visited Sedona's red rocks and vortex sites would agree it's a landscape worth safeguarding.

If you do want to take the Sedona Cares Pledge and recharge among the rustic southwestern luxury, check into one of these beautiful Sedona resorts that pride themselves on their views for your next getaway.

L’Auberge de Sedona

Though it's set along Oak Creek, with breathtaking views of the famous red rocks, it's actually the focus on small details that makes this L'Auberge property such a nice home-away-from-home. From the moment you arrive, the valet's warm greeting makes you feel welcome, and the concierge service (which includes building a fire for chilly evenings and arranging romantic creek-side dinners) is the perfect touch for a cozy stay. There are several options for accommodation, including English country-inspired rooms, suites, and cottages.

Enchantment Resort

This beautiful collection of adobe suites is nestled in the red rocks of Boynton Canyon. With a spa, fitness center, golf course, and tennis courts, Enchantment is perfect for a full-package holiday. There are several indoor and outdoor pools, too, and rooms are outfitted with kiva fireplaces and oversized soaking tubs.

Sky Ranch Lodge Resort & Botanical Gardens

There are no bad views in Sedona, but this resort goes above and beyond. Enjoy unparalleled views of the sunset on your own private balcony, before taking a stroll through the property's titular gardens. Friendly service, historic charm, and amenities like a heated, saltwater pool take this lodging to new heights.

Amara Resort and Spa

At Amara, headboards are planks cut from fallen trees, and the color scheme reflects the hues of local flora and fauna. One of the resort's best features is its infinity pool, which looks out over the rocks. There's also a full-service spa, yoga classes (don't bring your mat — there's one provided in every room), and a free shuttle to town if you prefer not to walk. The staff is warm and welcoming and all too happy to recommend local hikes and sights. Even if you don't stay, stop by for a margarita in their SaltRock Southwest Kitchen.

Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock

With two pools, a Championship Gary Panks designed golf course, and suites that include fireplaces and kitchenettes, you'll never want to leave this desert oasis. But, when the red rocks start calling, head to the desk in the lobby to book a Pink Jeep Tour. Swing by the spa for a tarot reading or enjoy fire pit s'mores at the ShadowRock Tap + Table restaurant.

Poco Diablo Resort

This hotel and spa is tucked into the rugged red rocks. The resort offers full-service spa treatments, tennis courts, stargazing, and a year-round heated pool. There are several guest room options that include jetted tubs, gas fireplaces, and private patios with lush Arizona views.
