A synergy of nature and Native American traditions.
The natural beauty of Sedona’s Boynton Canyon. The celebrated history of Native American tribes and their traditions. Together they’ve sculpted and influenced the look, feel and vision of this extraordinary place.
The creation of this unique Sedona destination spa was inspired by one of the most spectacular natural settings on earth, Boynton Canyon, and by the Native American culture that graces the region.
Enchantment Group commissioned Gluckman Tang (formerly Gluckman Mayner) Architects of New York, known for award-winning projects like the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, the Whitney Museum expansion in New York City, and the Guggenheim Museum in Berlin.
The result is a fusion of Anasazi-inspired colors and design elements, contemporary eclectic architecture and a pristine environment. The 24,000 sq.ft., two-level main building is nestled into the natural slope of a red-rock canyon wall. Simple lines, monumental forms and natural materials such as adobe brick, wood details and indigenous stone blend organically with the surroundings of this Sedona Arizona destination spa.
Natural light and water are recurring themes, and interior and exterior spaces flow into one another. Communal areas and pools are on the ground level, with treatment rooms housed in five adobe brick towers. Native American-inspired colors, design elements and hand-woven rugs, with bamboo and terrazzo floors, enhance the architecture of Mii amo.
