Well then, put these thoughts into action and create the getaway of your dreams in Sedona, Arizona. Unlike Iceland, the US has no official enchanted places listed, but this Southwestern city could certainly lay claim to an amazing amount of unique and wonderful areas to visit.
The town of Sedona possesses outstanding natural attractions that result in thousands of visitors every year. Located only two hours from the Grand Canyon, Sedona boasts unusual red rock formations not seen anywhere else in the world. As you drive into Sedona the landscape suddenly changes from green to red, and rock formations like Coffee Pot, Cathedral Rock, and the Two Sisters come into view. You’ll drive past the picturesque, upscale shopping village of Tlaquepaque, a replica of Guadalajara, a charming town in Mexico.
This low key town is home to some especially popular luxury resorts that have a strong following around the world, including Los Abrigados, The Boulders, L’Auberge, and Enchantment. These resorts boast luxury suites, private casitas, Four Star fine dining, and luxury spas. Couples can choose therapy sessions with techniques as diverse as Thai, Native American or New Age. You can even choose to have your body treatments performed in private teepees or along the stream under a clear blue sky.
Sedona is known for hiking and biking trails that lead to panoramic views as well as world class tennis and golf. What better way to reconnect and rejuvenate your body after strenuous outdoor activity than by visiting the calming, refreshing setting of a luxury spa. You can let a skilled therapist give you a hydrating facial to cleanse and soothe your delicate skin after long hours of sun exposure. If you have aching, tired muscles then maybe a toning, vigorous Swedish massage followed by an herbal body wrap is just what you need to feel re-energized.
