Dengler stays at the Hyatt Residence Club Sedona, Piñon Pointe, which he recommends as a solid jumping off point to explore the many local restaurants, bars and shops on foot. As an avid hiker, he also enjoys the many trail options in the area.
“Not only does Sedona have a ton of challenging hikes, but it is a great home base for visiting other Arizona hot spots,” he said, noting that Phoenix, the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest National Park and Flagstaff are all an easy drive away to add a variety of new adventures to his visits.
“I’ve spent time in Sedona, Phoenix, Scottsdale and Prescott, and each one offers something unique,” echoed Amina Dearmon, a luxury travel adviser and owner of Perspectives Travel. “I like that there is an emphasis on well-being, spending time outdoors, and great food across all of the cities that I’ve visited it in Arizona.”
