Hey y’all!! I’m back with a travel guide on my recent trip to Sedona. I was seriously blown away by how beautiful it was and the landscape is unreal; I didn’t know where to look!
Once you lay eyes on Red Rock Country you will fall in love with ALL its beauty. Keep scrolling to read where we stayed, played, and ate while in Sedona.
Where We Stayed- Arbella Hotel
It was centrally located, staff was amazing, the rooms were spacious and clean, and they had multiple fire pits and pools. The hotel has complementary bikes, you just have to sign a waiver and have them back before dusk. You guys know I love exploring on bike; it’s a great way to enjoy the gorgeous weather and not worry about parking.
Where We Ate:
Enchantment Resort- The resort is nestled within the red rocks and it’s so beautiful. We had breakfast at Che Ah Chi we sat outside in the terrace and enjoyed the 180 degree views. They have a lot of great choices, the food didn’t disappoint, and the views were incredible.
Mariposa- This restaurant has floor to ceiling windows, which means you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful views while sitting inside or from their huge outdoor patio. The food was delicious, I suggest you choose a select a few items and share.
The Hudson Restaurant– Here you will find amazing food, great service, and another favorite with gorgeous views. I would highly recommend you make reservations so you can catch the sunset, we were told it’s something you shouldn’t miss.
Indian Garden – We recommend stopping here before or after a hike. This is such a gem and the garden in the back is the best place to sit and enjoy your meal. They have a lot of healthy options, delicious coffee, and their pastries didn’t disappoint!
Things To Do:
Chapel of the Holy Cross– this is a MUST see when you’re in Sedona. The chapel is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. It’s built on the side of the red rock and it’s surrounded by beautiful landscapes and lovely red rock formations.
West Fork Trail- This trail is 6.9 miles long, with 400 feet of elevation. It’s located in the beautiful Oak Creek Canyon and it provides plenty of tree cover.
Spa Day at L’Apothecary Spa– If you want to relax and unwind this place is perfect. Private outdoor yoga and meditation sessions can be scheduled; yoga in particular can be customized to focus on your physical, emotion or spiritual needs. The staff was very helpful and my 60-minute Sweedish massage was incredible! When you are done with your treatment, head to one of their restaurants for a drink or lunch.
Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village- this is a fun place to walk, grab a drink, tons of great shops and restaurants. Make sure to stop at the Chai Shop!
Downtown Sedona- Here you will find restaurants, bars, and shops.
Tip: Rent A Car- if you are planning on going on hikes and exploring you defiantly need a car.
This is the perfect place to visit for a long weekend with the bf, a girls trip, or mother-daughter trip.
Thanks for Stopping by! Xo, B!
