Summer is upon us and we invite you to be inspired by L’Auberge
A Place of Possibility
At L’Auberge de Sedona, you’ll find more than a hotel. You’ll find a destination the likes of which are unparalleled, where life-enriching experiences, adventures, and memories are around every turn. Here, under the care of an attentive staff, guests thrive and return home renewed—even in ways they hadn’t imagined.
Hike up Bear Mountain for an epic view, stroll along the Oak Creek, watch an artist paint, snuggle up while watching the stars; do what makes you happy. We invite you to have fun this season, be inspired, and create memories.
Creekside Summer Package
Creekside Summer is a state of being in Sedona. It’s the time and place where walking up and having coffee on your cottage deck followed by outdoor adventures is the best way to spend the day. Then in the evening, the crisp air makes for a cozy evening retreat back to your cottage oasis. L’Auberge de Sedona has plenty of creekside opportunities for you including dining along Oak Creek, spa treatments set in a creekside cabana so you can listen to the creek flow by, and several spots to “just be” by the creek.
Throughout the winter season we focus on warmth, relaxation and renewal. Although our temperatures do not dip as low as many, we do get cool enough to cuddle near the fire and snuggle in a warm blanket. Every season could use a little more relaxation, but around the holidays we want our guests to remember to pamper themselves too! Finally, renewal. After the harsh temperatures of summer, along with the extra layers of sunscreen, winter is a wonderful time to renew your skin.
Prickly Pear Smoother
The prickly pear cactus is believed to have originated in North America and was valued highly by indigenous people of the southwest as a source of food and medicine. It grows prolifically in the Sedona high desert climate, blossoming in the spring and bearing fruit in late summer and fall. In the L’Apothecary Summer Soother spa treatment, prickly pear essential oil and fine grain salt are used to gently exfoliate the body. Then a rich lotion of prickly pear and pomegranate is applied to soothe and deeply moisturize the skin. This 60-minute refreshing spa treatment costs $160.
Flower Essence Meditation
Experience a meditation that is orchestrated by your intuition. Whether you are enhancing your current practice or are learning new methods of meditation, you will begin by simply choosing a flower card. Your facilitator will create a meditation that focuses on that flower and its properties to deepen your practice. You will begin the meditation with a deep inhalation of flower essence mist and then you will anoint certain acupressure points with the serum. Upon completion of the meditation, you will enjoy a flower essence elixir. Our flower essences are created by Lotus Wei to work with the body’s meridian system to enhance clarity, peace, and happiness.
Seasonal menus are debuted with flavors that are inspiring. French Executive Chef Franck Desplechin brings two decades of experience at Michelin-starred restaurants and five-star hotels to develop internationally inspired menus with the highest quality, local ingredients that reflect Arizona’s culinary culture. Rainbow Farm Trout, for example, is caught locally, while methods and elements of dishes are reflective of Chef Desplechin’s culinary upbringing in France.
Likewise, our Pastry Chef Morgan Gurney has created a new and exciting Summer Menu for Cress that will highlight Summer Fruits and Vegetables including corn which is sourced from Ramona Farms in Arizona.
