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!!

The BEST and Most Unbelievable November Wedding
We had our wedding here in November 2020. Needless to say, it was a tough planning process with what is going on in the world, but Lena and the team at Amara made this day absolutely amazing for us. We stayed at the resort prior to the wedding (in June) and then the week of... we never wanted to leave. The view, the food, the staff, the rooms... it was just unbelievable. Many of our guests also stayed at the Resort and were so blown away. While we did venture out once in a while, we found ourselves eating/drinking at SaltRock and it became our favorite place to meet up. We also had our rehearsal lunch here and the Amara team were very accomodating in making sure us and all of our guests were taken care of at all times.
Here we are a few weeks later and we still get messages or comments from our guests about how amazing the wedding was - the food was out of the world.
I cannot say enough great things about Amara. It's a truly magical place!Sent on 12/14/2020
Amara Resort's reply:Thank you Maeve, it was such a pleasure helping you make your dream wedding come true! Your day was truly magical! Thanks so much for sharing your wedding photos. Best wishes always!!

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
