Situated in the heart of Paradise Valley only minutes from Scottsdale, Hermosa Inn recently completed the second phase of a $5.5 million-dollar project that included the addition of 10 deluxe hideaway casitas, renovation of 12 historic rancho casitas and expansion of LON’s Last Drop bar and patio. Each new 700-square-foot casita features a vaulted ceiling, beehive fireplace, secluded patio and European white oak floors. A stately fountain anchors the hotel’s new entryway that leads into a refreshed lobby with beamed ceilings and a large fireplace. Phase one of the project commenced in 2015, soon after the resort was purchased by Allred Capital LLLP, which is committed to retaining the legacy and historic charm of the property that was originally the home and studio built by cowboy artist Lon Megargee in the early 1930s. 

Two Roads Hospitality has assumed management of L’Auberge de Sedona and Orchards Inn, which are now part of the Denver-based company’s Destination Hotels collection, which features more than 40 properties. L’Auberge de Sedona features 4,480 square feet of event space in addition to several outdoor venues, 62 luxury cottages, 21 traditional lodgestyle guest rooms and the five-bedroom Creekhouse. Many of the guest rooms feature new furniture and design elements.

 

Kimpton Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona has a new lineup of health-focused team-building and breakout sessions for groups of 10-120 that spotlight relaxation, meditation and clean eating. Examples of these options include experiencing the world-famous Sedona spirituality with guided meditation breaks in meeting rooms along with chair massages and yoga classes. Groups also can get creative with meeting room setups so they feature lounge furniture, yoga balls and mats, and cocktail tables to provide more room for activities.
