L’Auberge de Sedona, Arizona
Arizona’s Red Rock Country is one of the pinnacles of natural American beauty. Located on the banks of Oak Creek, L’Auberge de Sedona is a luxurious retreat for admiring this fine example of Mother Nature’s handiwork. Vista Suites flaunt 180-degree views of geological landmarks Snoopy Rock, Giants Thumb, and Elephant Rock from big redwood decks or floor-to-ceiling windows. Beneath the starry night sky of Sedona, guests can witness these jagged giants sleeping. Part of the pleasure of these rooms is watching the way light plays on the faces of the red rocks—an even more pleasurable experience when you take in the show from a bubble bath. Rooms, from $295; 301 Little Ln.; 855-702-0063; lauberge.com. —JCC
