Sedona is famous for its red rocks, energy vortexes, and some serious pampering at a number of highly rated spa resorts. This small town in the heart of red rock country is the kind of place that is easy on the eyes and naturally relaxing, even before you add in a full-body massage inspired by local Native American healing rituals at an elegant resort.

Beyond spa treatments, however, Sedona is filled with all sorts of outdoor activities, including lots of hiking and mountain biking options, as well as jeep tours and hot air balloon rides, all of which can be arranged via the spa resorts.

The sunrises and sunsets here are phenomenal, especially the sunsets, which set the red rocks and rushing water of Oak Creek aglow in crimson and gold. From couples to families, mid-range to ultra luxe, check out our list of the best spa resorts in Sedona.
