6 Reasons to Spring in Sedona

Return to Blog Page

Spring Awakenings

With spring in bloom, Sedona and L’Auberge offer a variety of opportunities for equal parts relaxation and discovery. Unwind at the spa with signature treatments, dine along the banks of Oak Creek, meander through gardens and local art installations – the possibilities are endless. We have compiled a list of our top 6 reasons to spend Spring in Sedona and at L’Auberge.

1. Delightful Spring Weather

Every season in Sedona has a different beauty, but the rebirth of Spring contrasting stunning colors on the trees and throughout the gardens against the statuesque red rocks makes it a favorite among many. With average high temperatures in the mid-60s to low 80s and lows that are refreshingly chilly, it’s perfect weather for Sedona’s outdoor activities like hiking, jeep tours and shopping in Uptown Sedona. You’ll want to make sure not to miss the spectacle of Sedona’s “evening entertainment”: an explosively colorful sunset behind Sedona’s red rocks.

2. Rebalancing of Mind and Body

Culminating a season of cold and dry weather along with emotional stressors of the holidays and changes brought on by a new year, a rebalancing of mind and body becomes essential in Spring. The attuned practitioners at L’Apothecary Spa have created signature treatments which help to add balance and to assist in renewal.
Blueberry Aloe Wrap: Treat yourself from head to toe with a thoughtful collection of organic ingredients to replenish, repair and restore your skin. This soothing, deeply hydrating and antioxidant rich treatment begins with a gentle dry brush exfoliation. Next, your body will be enveloped in a blueberry aloe vera wrap designed to smooth your skin and calm your mind. During your hydrating cocooning, you will receive a blueberry cream infused massage on your feet and a blueberry oil massage on your scalp to release tension and relieve tired muscles.

Chakra Balancing Massage: In this beautiful journey for your body, mind and soul, open yourself to receive higher awareness, purification, wisdom and inspiration for joy and love. Garnet, Carnelian, Amethyst and Rose Quartz are intentionally placed along your chakra centers to promote feelings of comfort, enthusiasm and instill confidence while inspiring creativity. This balancing massage aligns and revitalizes your whole self while activating your chakras and leaving you experiencing a rebirth of mindful sensations.

  • Garnet is chosen for its grounding properties. Built up energy within the body needs somewhere to go if it is not useful to the body so grounding through the garnet will allow the energy to flow back into the earth.
  • Carnelian supports circulation while regenerating vitality and creativity.
  • Amethyst is a natural tranquilizer, it relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings while dispelling anger, rage, fear and anxiety. Amethyst activates spiritual awareness, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities as well as dissolves negativity.
  • Rose quartz increases blood circulation in the body while helping to replace negative emotions with positive, returning the mind and body to a place of pure love and balance.

Creekside Spa Treatments: Experience an unparalleled relaxing spa journey with an al fresco massage. As your body relaxes by the expert touch of your practitioner your mind will relax by the calming sound of Oak Creek. Available beginning April 1, weather permitting.

Artist Connections

Art curator Linda Goldenstein of Sedona’s acclaimed Goldenstein Gallery has created an immersive art experience guests can enjoy without ever stepping foot off L’Auberge property. Described as a natural gallery, sculptures are spread throughout the property with exhibit pieces found in the lobby, Lodge, interior restaurant and some cottages.

This Spring Linda has assembled an exhibit featured in March around “A Woman’s Touch” highlighting Women’s Art History. Following in April, discover an Impressionist and Expressionist exhibit through the grounds.
