Arizona’s Desert Landscape Resorts

By day, the early morning and late evening sun illuminates Sedona’s red sandstone formations into a bright orange glow that lends to Arizona’s nickname of “red rock country.” By night, its cloudless desert sky glows with the ethereal beauty of the Milky Way. Diamond Resorts reviews two of its destinations, where visitors can be lulled by the earth’s natural beauty while enveloped by the scent of Juniper and Sage Brush. Vacationers in Sedona will experience the desert’s sensory magic that is both calming and rejuvenating to the spirit, whether they stay close to the resort for fun and relaxation or venture out for hiking, shopping for turquoise treasures and savoring local cuisine.

Diamond Resorts reviews Bell Rock Inn, which is situated within view of stunning panoramas of the famous Red Rocks and offers a cozy atmosphere for guests of this 85-room resort. The spacious accommodations are fully equipped for an effortless family getaway or romantic escape. Whether guests prefer to relax by the pool, host a fun-filled BBQ with friends and family or are drawn indoors for fireside reflections, they’ll have access to everything needed for a comfortable, memorable stay.

Sedona Summit is another Diamond Resorts International® resort that gets its name from its location in the upper Sedona Plateau. The slight elevation from the rest of Sedona allows guests of this two-story, 417-room resort unrivaled mountain views. Guests can emerge for sunrises and sunsets and then retreat to a comfortably furnished room with all the accommodations needed for a relaxing stay. After a day of adventuring in the backcountry, guests may want to soak in one of the heated pools to cap off the evening.

Sedona has much to offer in the way of spectacular geology and hikes with sweeping views of the plateau. Stargazers too will be able to see the Milky Way, as nighttime city lights are kept to a minimum. Some hikers may prefer to explore from the bottom of canyons, where the walls may reach upward about 2,000 feet and the geologic history dates back 300 million years. For those who can’t resist a daytime adventure to the more famous Grand Canyon, it’s an easy 110 miles to the north. Families may want to enjoy a visit to Slide Rock State Park, which takes its name from a natural water slide formed by the slippery bed of Oak Creek. Regardless of the type of getaway one seeks, Diamond Resorts reviews and offers Sedona stays that are welcoming to all.
