US: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has unveiled a $1 million redesign at Amara Resort & Spa in Sedona, Arizona.

The work undertaken includes a “refresh” of the boutique resort’s 100 guest rooms, common areas and a restaurant, SaltRock, that will open in early September.

Described as “modern native”, the resort’s new look fuses elements of Native American and Southwestern pattern and designs, “but reinvented in a contemporary way”.

Craftsmanship and traditions of the Hopi and Navajo tribes that are indigenous to Northern Arizona, such as basket-making, rope-weaving, rain sticks and turquoise, can be found throughout.

Patrick Gaskin, general manager of Amara Resort & Spa, said: “The new look of Amara is contemporary, yet comfortable. It’s chic and sophisticated while also being a warm and welcoming place that encourages our guests to socialise and enjoy the beauty and local culture of Sedona. From the rich leather accents, Native American-inspired patterned rugs, natural live-edge wood tables, bright magenta statement chairs and a stunning, 10-foot-wide brass cowbell chandelier, the mix of simple and clean with pops of colour and surprise really make our living room come alive.”

Common areas that underwent redesign include the living room, the full-service spa, the outdoor lounge and lawn areas and the 26,000-gallon infinity edge saltwater pool that overlooks Oak Creek and red rocks.
