Exceeded all my expectations, over the top amazing.
Lena Turner is absolutely amazing to work with. She helped me plan my sons groom dinner, with a welcome party for our wedding guests to follow.Sent on 11/14/2020
I am from International Falls, Minnesota, my son and his fiancé , now wife, lives in Marana Az and had chosen Sedona to get married. With never have been to the Amara Resort, everything had to
be planned over the phone. I have to say that I literally chose this Venu because of Lena Turner. She throughly understood everything that I was trying to achieve for the grooms dinner and she was completely transparent about everything. I had put my whole hearted trust in her and she did not disappoint me in anyway. Because of the COVID restrictions the wedding had been canceled and rescheduled 3 times. We started with a June date, then August and was finally able to have it in October. Lena stuck with me the entire time encouraging me that everything will workout. We had so many changes from menu changes to guest changes and Lena was so supportive through it all. I truly felt I had a best friend helping me through everything. The night of the dinner was no different, when we walked into the Meditation Room it was absolutely beautiful. Lena and her staff was attentive to every little detail. We again had some bumps as far some guest were unable to be there on time because of airline cancellations and changes. Again The staff was amazing as far as making sure our guests were taken care and served their dinner way after we all had our dinner. Speaking of dinner the food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.... everyone was still talking about it the next day. It definitely was a decadent gourmet meal from the appetizers we had during our cocktail hour to our dessert. Completely blew everyone away!
There were behind the scene things that Lena and her staff took care that made our evening absolutely perfect. They created a beautiful evening for the Bride and Groom and everyone included. Everything and everyone had exceeded my expectations. I can not thank everyone at The Amara Resort enough our experience was absolutely PERFECT!!

BEST wedding spot in Sedona
I had to change my wedding this year due to COVID. I was originally getting married internationally, but that didnt happen. So, we eloped to Sedona and had our reception at Amara. This place is BEAUTIFUL, we had an amazing reception room looking at the red rocks. The food was probably the best Ive EVER had and their service was on point. Lena and her team really made my day so easy and everything perfect for me. I had no stress whatsoever and the best day thanks to them!! Especially during the current climate, they were so flexible with us. I will 100% recommend this place to anyone for the rest of my life!!! Thanks again Lena!!!Sent on 09/05/2020
Amara Resort's reply:You are so welcome Allyson! My team and I strive to make every wedding event as special as the couples we serve. Wishing you the best for a long happy future together!

More amazing than I could have ever imagined
Initially, our wedding was supposed to be in Cabo, Mexico. However, Covid definitely changed those plans and we had to quickly find a new venue (of course with a much smaller guest list). We had gotten engaged in Sedona, so we thought this would be a perfect spot! We came across the Amara Resort and reached out. Lena got back to us right away. For every step of the process Lena was detailed, fast responding and so so friendly! We were able to visit the resort about a month before and she met us on site. That lady is amazing! Walked us through every little detail! When it came time for the big day, she was there for every step, but not in an overwhelming way! She was there when we needed her! I can’t say enough great things about the Amara Resort and Lena and her team! Also, the views from the resort were unbelievable! We did the ceremony creek side and couldn’t be happier!! Highly, highly recommend!!Sent on 11/22/2020
Amara Resort's reply:I am so happy you decided that Amara was the place for your new wedding venue Danielle! You are a breath of fresh air to all those around you and I know you and Jay will have a future filled with laughter and fun ahead!!
