Health is Wealth

Mental Health, Physical Health, Awareness, & Retreat

Enchantment Resort has majestic views and is a must experience for every human being!  In today’s busy go go go mentality this is the cherry spot to help realign and balance so we can live in harmony and live in flow.  The staff is incredible they welcome you with such grace and the people I met while there are truly special beautiful gems. Go solo or with loved ones, sit in solitude or meet cool new people, anything goes. The resort & spa I feel has one purpose to serve the needs of the people that come.  

 The cutest deer family on the property! I think Monsoon season is one of the best times to go…super moody and romantic…. 

Enchantment Resort and Mii Amo Spa are located in Sedona, Arizona, It’s a two-hour drive North of Phoenix and Scottsdale, and 114 miles south of the Grand Canyon. Surrounded by the towering red rock walls of Northern Arizona’s Boynton Canyon, Enchantment Resort combines the rugged grandeur of the Southwest landscape with equal parts luxury and Native American culture. The 70-acre resort is designed to embrace the awe-inspiring scenery with one-story guest accommodations and panoramic views of rock formations and pine forests. Trust me, it’s mind blowingly beautiful! 

Enchantment Resort offers guests a choice of more than 100 activities each week, including: Guided hiking and mountain biking excursions, Tennis and golf clinics, Yoga, Pilates, Qi Gong, Energy Dance, High intensity fitness classes, Culinary classes in healthy cooking, the benefits of tea, juicing, wine tasting, and organic gardening and composting, Native American programs, Creative photography, watercolors, gourd decoration, Guided Meditation, stargazing, evening lectures.
This really cool sweet man named George who works on the property took us out on two private tours!  A 2.5 memorable hike and the other my first time ever mountain biking George guided us not only by way of showing us the land but by giving words of wisdom and beautiful poetic tokens of life and their motherly – fatherly lessons.  It was super nurturing & enriching,  having the experiences with George made the whole experience very memorable and touched my heart in a deep heartfelt way.  We found out George is a talented artist! Check out his creations here.

Some Art & History:

The creation of this destination spa was inspired by one of the most spectacular natural settings on earth, Boynton Canyon, and by the Native American culture that graces the region. The Yavapai-Apache consider Boynton Canyon a sacred place, the site of their creation story. Enchantment Group commissioned Gluckman Tang Architects, known for their sensibility to art and light in projects like The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, the expansion of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, and the Museo Picasso Malaga in Spain. Mii amo embraces the surrounding natural beauty of Boynton Canyon with a contemporary yet organic architecture that echoes the Anasazi architectural aesthetic. The New York Times cited it as one of “The Decade’s Most Influential New Hotels” and The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture awarded it an American Architecture Award
