The Luxury Nature lovers would be hard-pressed to find a setting more sublime than Sedona, Arizona: radiant red rocks, green forests, and desert vegetationall under brilliant blue skies. The luxurious Enchantment Resort encompasses 70 acres at the mouth of Boynton Canyon. Though its close to town, the pueblo-style suites are secluded. Resort offerings include fine on-site restaurants, the Native Americanthemed Mii amo spa, and kid-friendly programs. Guests can also unwind with hiking, tennis, swimming, mountain biking, and golf.
The Value Through September 9, guests who pay for a three-night stay get the fourth free; the nightly rack rates start at $350/night in summer. Shermans readers receive a complimentary bottle of wine and gourmet platter on arrival.
The Catch Sedona lacks its own major airport. The closest one is in Phoenix, a 2-hour drive away.
