Arizona's Enchantment Resort to debut $25M transformation

Enchantment Resort, part of the Enchantment Group portfolio of properties in Sedona, Arizona, is slated to debut the third and final phase of a $25 million property-wide renovation. The concept behind the redesign is to bring the outdoors in and create open-air spaces.

Following the completion of an $11 million refurbishment of all 218 guestrooms, and a $4 million expansion of the resort's onsite Meeting Village, the resort will now boast a completely transformed Clubhouse with new and reimagined restaurants; a larger pool area with 360-degree views of the Boynton Canyon; new retail boutique and outdoor spaces.

The transformation is scheduled for completion in spring 2012.

Highlights of the new Clubhouse include the newly launched virtual check-in process, a fireplace, lounge spaces and the resort's collection of original works of southwestern art.


A new signature restaurant will have wood finishes, tile, neutral tones and custom lighting. The split level dining layout and glass doors open on to a verandah that showcases the views from an elevated setting. A new wine bar and lounge displays a wine cellar with over 2,000 bottles.

The resort's casual dining restaurant will feature an indoor fireplace, as well as a blend of seating styles of a traditional restaurant and lounge. Beyond the fireplace is a small bar.

Enchantment Resort's pool area has been renovated, with the existing pool and seating more than doubling in size and raised by 10 feet for 360-degree views of Boynton Canyon. The new main pool features an expanded pool deck and terrace area with chaise lounges, umbrellas, and private cabanas for individuals and small groups. A whirlpool spa, a pool bar and an adjacent game room were similarly refurbished.
