Enchantment Resort is perfectly named for those girlfriend weekend getaways with lots of choices from a relaxing spa visit to exhilarating hiking and mountain biking adventures. What can be more enchanting than time with friends creating fun, picture-perfect memories to the backdrop of the red rock walls of Arizona’s Boynton Canyon?
Located in Sedona, Arizona, Enchantment Resort is about a two-hour flight, or a 12 hour drive from Loveland. The trip is a way to leave behind the fast pace of city life for the rugged grandeur of the Southwest and Native American culture that Enchantment Resort offers.
Enchantment Resort sits at the base of Boynton Canyon in the spiritual heart of Sedona. Spanning 70 acres of panoramic natural terrain, the resort features 218 casita guest rooms and suites with a southwestern motif, open gallery style, and a private deck or patio overlooking the canyon. The options of room styles range from casitas to one- or two-bedroom suites and pool suites.
A girlfriend trip presents many options for how to spend the day, but it always begins with a morning celebration, a short ceremony to set and embrace intentions. From there, girlfriends can delve into the resort’s offerings of spa experiences, fitness programs, and wellness activities.
If they want to start with relaxation, girlfriends can head to the Spa Suites at Boynton Canyon for body treatments, skin care services, massages, and other services.
Or if exercise is on their agenda, the new Yoga and Movement Studio, the Canyon Studio, and the multi use areas feature a fitness center with cardio and strength training equipment, mindfulness programs, and private consultation rooms.
They also can opt for a gentle walk or some stretching exercises, including a morning stretch during sunrise, a candlelight stretch at the end of the day, and a foam roller fusion class. There also are barre, Pilates, and all-ages, Yin and Vinyasa yoga classes, as well as strength training and toning options, such as Bosu and total body toning. Walks are another great way to relax and exercise at the same time.
There also is the new adventure and activity center, the Trail House, which offers a retail space with professional-grade equipment, accessories, and outdoor apparel and a discovery center with details about the resort’s surrounding geography.
For a small daily room fee, guests can add a few amenities, such as playing croquet, bocce ball, and pickleball; taking the guided labyrinth walks; and gaining access to the fitness center, tennis court, and Seven Canyon golf club.
As for dining, the Sedona Restaurants at Enchantment Resort offers seasonal menus of Southwest-inspired cuisine, wine lists, and innovative cocktails like the De La Casa, Controlled Burn, and Tropic Vortex. Che Ah Chi offers modern American cuisine with a Native American influence, while at Tii Gavo, there are regionally inspired dishes with options for dining indoors or al fresco by a fire pit. There also is poolside dining and service at the Seven Canyons Clubhouse.
So, call up the girlfriends, pack the bags, and start experiencing relaxation and adventures in an enchanting way for a perfect resort getaway.
