Renowned for its red rocks and outdoor activities by day, many don’t realize Sedona has an incredible night life: it is the world’s eighth international dark sky community, a recent designation from the International Dark-Sky Association recognizing excellent stewardship of the night sky. The community as a whole has banded together to keep light pollution down so we can look up and see stars, the phases of the moon and the Milky Way.
Enchantment’s location in a private canyon offers even more intense viewing of the night sky. With minimal light pollution and fully shielded light fixtures that direct light downwards, all guests need do is walk outside and look up. Twice a week, guests may join a guided stargazing session led by a local expert with a powerful telescope.
Mii amo, a destination spa at Enchantment, has designed two treatments around the phases of the moon, and each is offered only on days around that moon’s phase. Spirit of the New Moon is about manifesting one’s deepest desires and wishes; Spirit of the Full Moon is about releasing what no longer serves one’s life.
The next full moon is September 27th, so book your appointment now.
