Ambiente Sedona is a modern escape into Sedona’s Red Rocks

The resort features 40 elegantly furnished atriums with panoramic views and sustainable design elements like restored watercourses. Share

An unparalleled nature experience as the first landscape hotel in North America, Ambiente Sedona is home to unarguably some of the best views of Sedona, positioned on the edge of Red Rock State Park. This architecturally striking resort serves as a modern and elegant retreat surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Throughout the construction process, great care was taken to minimize the impact on the natural environment, demonstrating a deep respect for the land and its biodiversity. This commitment to sustainability is evidenced by elements like the restoration of an ancient watercourse integrated into the hotel’s design, providing a tranquil natural feature for guests to enjoy.

The resort’s accommodations are designed to reflect the natural beauty of Sedona within the interiors of its residential units. The 40 atriums are decorated in soft earth tones with casual elegance, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that offer 180-degree views of the national park and the iconic red rock formations. Each atrium is luxuriously appointed with amenities such as a rooftop deck, a fire pit, and a day bed, allowing guests to enjoy the outdoors without compromising on comfort or style.

At the heart of the property, the Star Reflection Atriums are conveniently located where several streams converge, providing easy access to the Forty1 restaurant and serene pool. The Creekside Reflection Atriums open up to the soothing sounds of flowing streams, featuring both a rooftop and a creekside terrace for nighttime stargazing and tranquillity. These atriums are situated centrally between the lagoon, near the Welcome Center and Velvet Spa, and within walking distance of the dining and pool areas.

The Forest Reflection Atriums offer a view that includes a backdrop of local flora such as manzanita, juniper, Arizona cypress, sycamore, and ponderosa pines, potentially allowing guests to observe native wildlife right from their rooms. The Landscape Reflection Atriums provide a morning spectacle of the Coconino National Forest and iconic red rock formations, with a design that allows guests to watch the horizon as storms pass or snowfalls dust the Sedona Red Rocks. Guests can venture up to their private patios via spiral staircases to enjoy special treats by the fire pit, witnessing the breathtaking play of colours at sunrise and sunset.

Dining at Ambiente Sedona is an experience in itself, with Forty1 offering an extensive a la carte breakfast and seasonal evening menus complemented by wine pairings featuring organically grown ingredients from the Verde Valley. The restaurant also caters to diverse dietary preferences with an extensive vegan menu. The Drifter offers a more casual dining atmosphere by the poolside, serving fresh juices, homemade cocktails, local beer, or wine, all enjoyed against the backdrop of Red Rock views.

The Velvet Spa at Ambiente Sedona invites guests to awaken their senses with a variety of traditional treatments and massages in a relaxing environment. The outdoor pool area allows guests to relax in the sun and take in expansive views, further enhancing the serene experience.
