In true Banyan Tree style, the resort architecture reflects the local Tibetan culture. All 31 spacious lodges and suites are traditional Tibetan farmhouses with intricate woodcarvings and wooden balconies that have valley or river views. Impressive pine pillars add enormous character to both the interior and exterior of each house. And of course, there is the heavenly Banyan Tree Spa.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."This Southwest-style resort, made of low-slung adobe casitas in central Arizona’s Boynton Canyon, blends into the iconic red-rock cliffs of Sedona, a town known for its artsy, New Age vibe. Opened in 1987 and set on 70 acres, Enchantment’s 218 rooms and suites (fresh from a renovation in 2012) look out onto undulating canyon walls and green cottonwood trees, while neutral interiors are inspired by the surrounding terrain and are filled with accents that refer to local Native American culture (kiva fireplaces; area rugs inspired by traditional basket-weaving). Within Enchantment’s grounds, but separate from the main complex— also home to several pools, six tennis courts, pitch-and-putt golf, and hiking trails—is the transformative Mii Amo, a 24,000-square-foot destination spa with 16 casitas as well as a dedicated pool and regionally inspired restaurant. A three-, four-, or seven-day stay at Mii Amo—or a “Journey,” as it’s called—is priced on an all-inclusive basis (accommodation, spa treatments, and meals), while Enchantment guests can book treatments on an à la carte basis.~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This former private ranch surrounded by pine trees in Red Rock Country offers an “unbeatable experience,” with “great family programs and Native American teachings.” Rustic adobe casitas have beehive fireplaces and Southwestern furnishings that are “in keeping with the location and theme.” Decks open to views of Boynton Canyon that will “take your breath away.” The “superb, customer-oriented staff are great,” and the property recently went through a renovation, upgrading all rooms. Expect “spotty cell phone reception, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing!” Che-Ah-Chi has floor-to-ceiling windows with 180-degree views of the surroundings, and Southwest-accented American cuisine, hence dishes like buffalo tenderloin and baby carrots." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Hacienda De Los Santos

This hotel says...

After a meticulous 21-year-long renovation, three Spanish Colonial mansions and one sugar mill—all located in the heart of the picturesque town of Alamos—were gorgeously transformed into a luxurious boutique hotel that transports its guests to a gentler, kinder era, when smiles were plentiful and the service as exquisite as the bed linens. Connected by stone walkways, brick passageways and a stone footbridge, the buildings are now decorated with hand-carved antiques, period pieces and an impressive array of original artwork and Spanish Colonial art, including a tasteful collection of saints, altarpieces and votive offerings, which gave rise to this unique getaway’s name: Hacienda de los Santos (House of the Saints).

Today, Hacienda de los Santos offers its guests 23 guestrooms, suites and villas; superb gourmet dining; an onsite Spa and much, much more.
