Every March I have the pleasure of traveling to a warmer climate – Arizona. This year I wanted to discover new things in the area and when I asked friends and readers about recommendations everyone told me a road-trip to Sedona was a must. With that being said, I knew the drive would be worth it. As I started researching hotels to include on my visit, I knew L’Auberge de Sedona had to included on my trip.
As I drove from Scottsdale up to Sedona the road was breathtaking. As you wind through the stunning red rocks to Sedona all I could think was “if this is the best part, then this trip was well worth it.” However, it only got better. As I pulled into the beautiful L’Auberge de Sedona hotel I knew it was something special. My first thought – this is so peaceful, tranquil and absolutely stunning. The hotel sits next to a lovely creek that you can hear throughout the entire property, which makes you relax instantly. The property offers morning yoga next to the creek at sunrise after they feed the local ducks (how sweet is that!). Each cabin has its own private deck and every single one has a view – either of the Red Rocks, creek or beautiful forest.
I enjoyed a relaxing day at the small and intimate spa, had a lovely lunch by the creek (the Salmon BLT is a must) and then sat back and relaxed by a fire pit reading a few magazines I needed to catch up on. I was in heaven. Looking up at everything surrounding me brought pure joy.
As I reluctantly drove away all I could think about was my next trip to this destination and next year I’ll definitely be bringing Eric with me. If you’re traveling that way I highly suggest going!
