Picture this: glowing red rocks, clear blue skies, and the most eye-popping sunsets you’ve ever seen. That’s Sedona. It's an outdoor lovers' paradise, with more than 200 trails for biking, hiking, running, and rock climbing. But it also has a spiritual side, in part due to the area's "vortexes" (energy hotspots said to have therapeutic benefits). Hike Broken Arrow Trail in the morning, then explore Uptown's metaphysical stores, boutiques, and galleries (don't miss the artisan shops at Tlaquepaque). Soothe your sore muscles at one of Sedona's spas (there’s a lot of ‘em), where treatments often involve sound baths or crystals. Nightlife is minimal, so skip last call and head to the Village of Oak Creek for some prime stargazing (the neighbourhood is an International Dark Sky Place). That’s not all there is to do—find more top recs below.

Sedona spa guide

Don’t get me wrong—the wellness resorts in my hometown of Phoenix are lovely. But when I really need a couple days of next-level self-care, I drive two hours north to Sedona. This short trek is a ritual I’ve been indulging in regularly for more than 20 years. My favourite spas in this spiritual town, known for its nature and nurture, offer world-class treatments that do wonders.

  • L’Apothecary Spa
    Set between the iconic red rocks and meandering Oak Creek, L’Auberge de Sedona is where I go for metaphysical experiences and tranquility. Its L’Apothecary Spa pampers guests with rejuvenating treatments ranging from traditional deep-tissue massages and facials to seasonal scrubs and chakra-balancing sessions. Therapists address your mind, body, and spirit through their signature essential oil scents (created at the Blending Bar) and their use of nourishing local, organic ingredients.
  • Mii amo
    When it comes to destination spas in Sedona, Mii amo tops my list thanks to its recent $40 million refresh and its stunning setting—nestled into Boynton Canyon, known as one of Sedona’s vortex centres. This spa is only available to guests staying on property, so book a 3- to 10-night all-inclusive Journey with daily classes and treatments (like intuitive massages and healing sound baths), curated wellness-focussed itineraries, food, and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Ambiente Sedona A Landscape Hotel
    The 2023 opening of Ambiente, a boutique property with 40 cube-shaped suites, was much-anticipated, as was its Velvet Spa—after all, the hotel owner is a former aesthetician. The intimate spa’s private treatment rooms instantly transport me to a serene place, allowing me to luxuriate in clay wraps, CBD and arnica-infused massages, or regenerative facials with potent botanicals and LED light therapy. Delve deeper with IV infusions, ear seeds, and bathing rituals.
  • Spa at Amara Resort
    When I’m yearning for Sedona-centric treatments, I head straight to Amara Spa. One of the standout experiences here is the Winds of Change, which combines energy work with a massage. During this 90-minute signature treatment, your therapist will lead you through a guided meditation to balance your chakras with the help of crystals and oils, ending with a relaxing massage. Slough off rough skin with an Arizona prickly pear scrub or try a serenity gemstone facial, too.
  • A Spa for You Sedona Day Spa
    Sometimes you don’t need all the frills that accompany a high-end spa, just an unforgettable treatment that hits the spot. Those are the days when I most appreciate A Spa for You Sedona Day Spa. Its unassuming environment boasts attentive staff that specialises in—wait for it!—traditional Japanese facial massage and Jin Shin Jyutsu flows that unblock and reconnect your energy points. It’s a rare gem in this region, and one that’s too often overlooked.
  • Gateway Cottage Wellness Center
    Located right on the main drag in town with a beautiful red rock backdrop, Gateway Cottage Wellness Centre is a hybrid spa and metaphysical gift shop (I love browsing for crystals and jewellery). Partake in therapeutic bodywork, reiki energetic healing, intuitive readings, past life regressions, hypnotherapy, and reflexology. Deep inner work can be done here, with the assistance of the dedicated and talented practitioners.
  • Sedona's New Day Spa
    This is another day spa with a longstanding reputation for excellence. I always enjoy the outdoor gardens, hot bath, and fountains, before stepping into the Native American-inspired spa rituals and Southwest-focussed treatments. The spa uses organic, wildcrafted, and Indigenous products for facials, massages, and body treatments. For a unique session, book the Wheel of Life gemstones reading or Southwest Steam Experience sweat lodge.
