OTL Golf: Heal Your Mind and Body in Red Rock Country
OTL Golf spotlights L’Auberge de Sedona’s luxurious amenities, wellness activities, impeccable dining and more, along with a quote from our General Manager, Tobby Rau, showcasing how the hotel offers guests the ability to reconnect with nature.
“Situated on the shores of meandering Oak Creek is L’Auberge de Sedona, within walking distance to Sedona’s famed shopping and dining district, Uptown. This creekside haven is ideal for the epicurean traveler to escape in quiet reprieve with luxurious amenities and life-enriching experiences including in-house artist viewing, daily yoga and wildlife feedings.
“Designed to enhance guest interaction with nature instead of detracting from it, our property seeks to honor and accentuate natural beauty in every possible way,” said Tobby Rau, general manager at L’Auberge.
The resort was originally built in 1984 with a dozen cottages on the creek banks that were once home to an apple orchard, with some of the trees still intact today. L’Auberge’s signature restaurant, Cress on Oak Creek, sits upon property that was adjacent to Sedona’s first homestead started by Frank and Nancy Owenby in 1893 – talk about farm to table! The elegant waterfront eatery, led by Executive Chef Frank Desplechin, offers a romantic and peaceful atmosphere with wine-forward, Southern-European cuisine. While the acclaimed sommelier-composed wine list pulls diverse, high-quality wines from all over the world, Cress also supports Arizona’s ever-growing wine scene from wineries in Verde Valley (just 25 minutes away) and the state’s southern wine regions in Cochise County and Sononita.
The resort has grown over time, now home to 62 free-standing suites and cottages throughout 11 acres with private soaking tubs, outdoor showers, expansive decks and private entrances. A main lodge houses 21 guest rooms all with their own private deck or balcony, plus a shared pool with a jetted hot tub and an art gallery for guests to enjoy, curated by the Goldenstein Gallery.
L’Apothecary Spa at L’Auberge offers an assortment of spa services, with the most intriguing being the Quiet Mind treatment, in which the therapist works with the guest to learn breathing exercises that will allow the guest to truly quiet their mind and focus on relaxation.
In the past, L’Auberge has also hosted geologists and vortex experts on-hand at the resort to grace guests with their knowledge, but this has paused at press time to focus on guest safety following the pandemic. Resort leaders hope to resume these activities in the future. Nightly rates range at L’Auberge from $300 to $1,600 depending on the season and type of accommodation.”
