Style, Decor & More: An Oasis in the Desert! Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa!

An Oasis in the Desert! Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa!

Every highway leads me back to you, Sedona! 

After touring Monument Valley in Utah, we headed about three hours south to Sedona, Arizona.  The 2½-3 hour scenic drive is a lovely mixture of red rock bluffs, mountain views, and endless pine trees.

Sedona is an oasis in the middle of the Arizona desert that has long attracted visitors for its stunning scenery. A city known for its array of red sandstone formations, the red rocks appear to glow when illuminated by the rising or setting of the sun. They serve as a serene backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.

We stayed one night at Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa, a Four Diamond luxury hotel in the heart of Sedona. Our room was beautifully appointed with lambs-wool throw blankets, a fireplace, a beautiful bath, and comfortable linens. The Simmons Super Plus pillow top mattresses were ultra comfy! Here are a pics to give you an overall feel for this beautiful hotel and spa.

A three-story atrium-like lobby greeted us at Sedona Rouge. 

The rooms were spacious with vaulted ceilings.

The lovely view from our room!

 The in-room fireplace made the room feel cozy!

The spacious bath had an amazing shower and a large assortment of vanity essentials. A thoughtful presentation can make the smallest things special.

Views from Sedona Rouge's third floor observation deck are spectacular and the starry night sky is breathtaking. If it is chilly, you can turn on the firepit!

We were short on time and didn't have a chance to stop in the Sedona Rouge Spa, but I heard that they will pamper you with a seamless blend of Andalusian luxury. Sounds wonderful! After a relaxing day at the spa, you can feast upon modern cuisine and delicious comfort foods at REDS Restaurant located on site.

Sedona Rouge is a collection of 74 beautifully appointed guest rooms including four suites and six spa guest rooms. Appointed with the most eclectic Spanish and Mediterranean adornments, each room enlists all the senses of the body. See the dramatic and rich colors in every room; touch the sensual linens, goose down feather duvets, and the Simmons Super Plush Pillow Top mattresses; feel the calming sounds of the overhead rain-shower in the opulent bathrooms and breathe crisp clean desert air from patio or Euro-style balcony.
Even the standard features at the Sedona Rouge are lavish. Each room also has a 32’ LCD flat screen television, complimentary wireless Internet and gourmet coffee service, petite fridge, nightly turndown service, and lush bathrobes.

Other places worth visiting in Sedona:
Chapel of the Holy Cross is one of Sedona’s most popular tourist spots to visit. This Roman Catholic chapel was built right into the beautiful red rock of Sedona.

We enjoyed our lunch on the patio at Shugrue's. This is our third time visiting Sedona and we always stop here for a bite to eat! Our lunch selections are always delicious!
