Highs + Lows

  • The location embodies everything the phrase "America the Beautiful" is about. The way the resort is so gracefully tucked into the canyons creates an unmatched, almost otherworldly environment.

  • Their activities offering reads like a university course catalog...from mind, body & wellness programs to hiking, biking and tennis, there's so much to do and explore. Some of the more unique highlights include stargazing, chanting...even gourd decorating!

  • Mii amo Spa is an experience in and of itself and on my next trip I won't be able to pass up one of their all-inclusive 3, 4 or 7 night spa packages.

  • The resort is a good two hour drive from Phoenix airport, but worth the seclusion from anything urban or fast paced.
