New offerings at Sedona resort




New offerings at the Sedona resort and spa include activities and sessions 
focused on Health & Nutrition, Nature & Creativity, and Stress Relief & Spirituality

Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona.

SEDONA, ARIZ. - August 24, 2010 - Enchantment Resort recently released 20 new programs for individual guests, couples and families to take part in ranging from red rock hikes and nutrition, to photography and astrology. The new offerings at the Sedona resort include a variety of outdoor activities and creative sessions in the following categories: Health & Nutrition, Nature & Creativity, and Stress Relief & Spirituality.

"Enchantment Resort is well known as the leading family resort in Sedona. We wanted to build on our offerings and create guided activities for families and guests to explore the region, learn about their surroundings and reconnect with one another," said Annika Jackson, Enchantment Resort Vice President & Managing Director. "Many of the new programs are inspired by treatments and sessions at our destination spa, Mii amo, with expert staff members contributing to the design and components of the new activities."

Health & Nutrition guided activities include "Hike the Red Rocks," where groups or families of up to five people can explore Sedona's finest hiking trails and take in breathtaking views and vistas. On this guided hike, guests will discover the allure of the red rocks and the beautiful plants and wildlife that live in Northern Arizona.

Because each phase of life presents different challenges and nutritional concerns, Enchantment Resort will now also offer its Mii amo "Nutrition" session to younger guests and their families. Nutritional needs change over time as our bodies continue to evolve and in this session, a nutritionist will offer powerful tools to maximize health and offer tips for everyone based on their age and individual health needs.

Enchantment Resort's location in the powerful red rocks of Boynton Canyon is the ideal place to explore and find inspiration. The Nature & Creativity sessions include "Photography," led by the resort and spa's skilled photographer, who will review principles of lighting and how to capture the perfect shot in Sedona's spectacular surroundings.

Another new class is "Organic Gardening & Composting" at our chef's garden and composting center adjacent to the spa. Organic gardening is a natural, sustainable way to produce food using elements and processes found in nature that meet plants' needs and support its cultivation. Following the idea that better soil produces stronger plants which yield more healthy food, guests can learn gardening tips and advice including possible plant lists, soil management practices, and all-natural techniques that focus on prevention rather than correction.

Sedona is often acclaimed as the best destination for seeking stress relief and connecting with your spirit. Our Mii amo experts can now offer guided sessions for families and groups in "Meditation." Guests can discover how meditation can help in relaxation and learn the skills to develop better focus and concentration, become more comfortable with emotions, improve relationships and heighten self esteem.

All of the new, private activities can be booked individually or as shared group or family sessions. Some age restrictions may apply; and prices and group size vary depending on the activity. A full listing of the new programs offered can be found at

The 70-acre Enchantment Resort, set in Boynton Canyon and noted for combining the rugged grandeur of the Southwest landscape with equal parts luxury and Native American culture, is designed to honor this special setting and evoke the ancient cliff dwellings that were once home to the canyon's indigenous people. A centrally located clubhouse contains two of Sedona's best restaurants, a gift shop and concierge desk, and a rooftop deck provides an ideal vantage point for viewing the countless stars in Arizona's clear night sky. To pay tribute to the area's rich heritage of Native American culture, a thoughtful and diverse program of guest experiences take place at the resort. Guests may explore drumming, dance and musical performances, storytelling, talking circles, arts and crafts demonstrations, guided medicine walks and more. In addition, the resort offers a wealth of outdoor recreation, including Sedona hiking, mountain biking, tennis, swimming, pitch 'n putt golf, championship croquet and bocce ball. Mii amo, a destination spa at Enchantment named for a Yuman word for "passage" or "journey," promotes healing through mind, body and spiritual therapies, and provides spa services to Enchantment guests that range from massage and body treatments to Native American treatments and spiritual exploration.
