Ambiente, A Landscape Hotel is slated to open in Sedona, Arizona in late 2020.

Developed, owned and managed by Two Sister Bosses, a Sedona family-owned and -operated company, Ambiente will have a design that will blend in with the surrounding area.

Scottsdale-based ASUL Architects is constructing Ambiente around the natural vegetation and topography, requiring less cut-and-fill.

Virtual Event

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


Ambiente will have 40 cubed-shaped, guest atriums that will be elevated above the ground by steel piers and constructed using floor-to-ceiling, bronze-tinted glass and matte-charcoal and rusted metal. At dusk, the tinted glass will reflect the nature around it to create mirrored silhouettes.

The pier-method used to build Ambiente’s atriums will eliminate the need to grade the land. During construction, this pier technique allows each Atrium to be rotated and individually hand-placed at very specific angles to fit, as best as possible, within the existing trees and flora, maximizing the views. Krizan Associates Inc. has been retained to manage the landscape architecture.

The property will have a 360-degree view of Sedona and the protected preserve of Coconino National Forest. Ambiente will sit on three acres of untouched landscape along 89A, just west of Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill.
