Native American Influenced Experiences
Boynton Canyon has long been known as a place of spiritual inspiration and healing. According to Yavapai-Apache legend, it is where First Woman — with the sun and rain gods — restored the tribe to their long-cherished land. At Enchantment Resort, we honor the Native American culture with thoughtfully crafted experiences influenced by Native American traditions.
The philosophical heart of Mii amo is the Crystal Grotto, a special place inspired by a Native American kiva. The circular room has an oculus in the domed ceiling positioned to focus the sun’s rays (on the day of the summer solstice) directly onto a quartz crystal in the center of the room. These rays link the heavens and earth by “lighting” a petrified wood fountain and crystal mandala on the Grotto’s earthen floor. Every morning, guests are invited to join the Morning Ritual in the Crystal Grotto where they are guided towards acknowledging and setting their intentions for the day.

Reflective of a Native American ceremony and ritual, this spa treatment offered at Mii amo utilizes elements sacred to Native Americans. The four directions are honored, sweet grass is burned and The Circle of Life Blanket is used to create the warmth of a sweat lodge and to honor tribal elders.
