Feeling Sedona’d out? Visitors needing an escape from vortex energy should head south. Less than a half-hour drive from Sedona lies the pocket-size town of Cottonwood, Arizona. Once a sleepy pass-through city, Cottonwood has become a destination and makes for a relaxing one or two-night stopover.

If a luxury spa is your idea of bliss, the destination spa, Mii Amo, is where you’ll find happiness. Surrounded by Sedona’s red rock spires and the Kachina Woman Vortex, professional expertise and nurturing healing energy will be yours.
…a passion for hiking and a well-earned post-trail happy hour can make for the perfect getaway.
