Enchantment Resort in Sedona Among the Best Places to See the Stars

Stargazing, Full-Moon Hikes, Spirit of Moon Spa Treatments

SEDONA, Ariz., (September 8, 2014) -  Sedona was recently named an international dark sky community, one of only eight such places in the world recognized by the International Dark-Sky Association for its excellent stewardship of the night sky.  Enchantment Resort’s location in a private canyon in Sedona ensures guests will see bright stars, the Milky Way, phases of the moon and more.

With minimal light pollution and fully-shielded light fixtures around the resort that direct lights downward towards the walking paths, the night sky is preserved for maximum viewing.  For something more, guests have several options:

Twice a week, a guided stargazing session is led by a local expert, allowing guests to peer through a powerful telescope and learn more about the current activity of the planets, moons and stars.   The sessions begin at twilight every Tuesday and Saturday.  

The more adventurous can sign up for the Full Moon Red Rocks Hike, a two-hour experience that begins just before sunset to witness the lengthening shadows of the falling sun, followed by the rising moon and the illumination of the red rocks. 

The energy of the moon is harnessed in two pop-up spa treatments:  Spirit of the New Moon, and  Spirit of the Full Moon,  offered only around those moon’s  phases.   The new moon is an excellent time for manifesting one’s deepest desires and wishes; the full moon is a time for releasing what no longer serves one’s life. Each treatment incorporates a different ritual, and both include a scalp and body massage.

Surrounded by nature in a red rock canyon, with a protected night sky above, the stars shine bright at this Sedona resort.
