Looking for an exotic place to sleep and eat? We’ve found a great deal for two at Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Ariz., which includes dinner for two at the resort’s completely new signature restaurant, Che-Ah-Chi.
Che-Ah-Chi is Apache for the area Enchantment Resort and Mii amo Spa occupies, now known as Boynton Canyon. This space has long been a favorite for the dramatic views of the deepening shadows on the red rocks at sunset and now with the Taste of Enchantment package, there’s no excuse not to dine there during your stay. Here’s how we suggest you make the most of your time there:
Start with the resort’s famed Prickly Pear Margarita ($12) while you peruse Executive Chef David Schmidt’s menu. Signature starters like Lobster Bisque made with Sweet Corn Panna Cotta, Mushrooms and Cognac ($14) for a first course will tempt and for a main, let’s just say Chef David is known for his Elk Loin with Fava Bean Hash, Pancetta, Pecorino and Spinach Puree ($40). But there are many choices, just remember to save room for dessert which is always a sweet surprise as offerings change.
The Taste of Enchantment package is for two people per night and the price varies according to the date of your stay and the type of room you select. There is a two night minimum and package rates don’t include taxes or a per night resort fee of $25 per room (Grr.) The resort fee, however, includes Wi-Fi in the rooms and self-parking. Here’s the full breakdown:
· Two nights at Enchantment Resort
· Full breakfast or breakfast buffet each morning, per person at any restaurant or room service
· One dinner per person, one night of your stay at any restaurant or room service
· Mii amo’s A Journey of Taste cookbook
