Mii amo, Sedona, Arizona
Crafted by star architect Richard Gluckman to fuse with the otherworldly, fire-colored rocks of Red Rock State Park, Mii amo embraces local Native American traditions and draws from the sacred, energy vortex that reputedly buzzes through the area. Sign up for three, four or seven-day itineraries, known as journeys, to undergo a couples’ joint magic carpet ride to another dimension. Contemporary rooms, some with mountain views, provide a soulful foundation for days filled with spa treatments that range from facials to hypnosis (to conquer a bad habits) to hot stone massage. Inspired, healthy cuisine sustains you during myriad complimentary group activities — think hikes and star gazing. Do back stroke in the outdoor pool to muse over the clouds or ponder your future in the crystal-bedecked meditation room, designed to capture the moonlight.
Room a Deux: The stand-alone Mii amo Luxury Suite has a fireplace, terrace and courtyard with views.
Prescription: Inhale the dreams of your new life together in the couple’s massage room with the Intentional Aromatherapy Massage. Set an intention for a happy, healthy marriage. miiamo.com
