Over the summer, Sedona Rouge, a hotel in Sedona, Arizona, announced a property-wide transformation and a new name change. Now, like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, it's set to debut as The Wilde Resort & Spa on Sept. 29.

The Wilde, the hotel explained in a statement, will "allow guests to embrace the natural beauty that surrounds them in one of the world's most breathtaking destinations" and act as a home base for both adventurers and relaxation seekers alike.

"As we introduce the newest resort experience in Sedona, we are confident that guests will enjoy The Wilde's thoughtfully designed spaces, authentically curated experiences, and exceptional service delivered by our talented team," Jay Kriske, general manager of The Wilde, shared in a statement. "We look forward to creating memorable experiences for our guests for many years to come."

At the completely reimagined hotel, guests will find 105 contemporary rooms and suites all featuring dramatic colors and rich fabrics that complement the stunning views out their windows. Though the rooms are certainly sublime, guests are encouraged to leave them from time to time to meander through the property's gardens and courtyards, all landscaped to mimic the rugged terrain of the Sonoran Desert. At the Grove, the property's largest outdoor gathering space, guests can also sit and take in the views of Thunder Mountain while relaxing with a glass of wine around cozy fire pits.

The property will also feature a new, modern culinary concept, Rascal, helmed by chef Mercer Mohr. Rascal, the hotel noted, will provide guests with "a unique dining experience while paying homage to the classic all-day American diner with chef-driven, market-inspired cuisine and a vibrant cocktail program."

There's one more place guests can go to relax: The Wilde Haven Spa.

The Wilde Haven Spa is "a mindful full-service spa and fitness center offering treatments that promote healing and spiritual growth, leaving guests feeling fulfilled, inspired, and invigorated," the hotel explained. It comes complete with outdoor soaking tubs and landscaped seating areas, along with an array of spa and fitness programming, including sound healing and yoga. And, with the hotel's proximity to world-class hiking, biking, ATV tours, and national park excursions, the spa will be a welcome respite and the place to go to slow down before doing it all again the next day. Rates start from $219 a night and bookings are now open on the resort's website.
