Premiere luxury resort L’Auberge de Sedona debuts the Home for the Holidays experience to go with the resort’s holiday celebrations. Guests are invited to join in the festivities this year amid Arizona’s beautiful natural features like Oak Creek and Red Rocks.

 

The Creekside and Garden Cottages will be decked out in a winter wonderland theme, beginning with hot cocoa from a specialty chocolatier greeting guests upon arrival. Holiday accent throws and pillows will adorn the beds and seating of each cottage, along with soft flannel sheets spread across each bed. Over the fireplace will hang two stockings and a fresh wreath will grace the front doors of each cottage. No cottage will be complete without a holiday tree adorned with twinkling lights and a plate of freshly baked cookies made by the resort’s pastry chef.

 

L’Auberge de Sedona holds an annual holiday tradition beginning with the Tree Lighting Ceremony Dec. 5, 5–7 p.m. Accompanied by live music, snacks and drinks, guests can relax and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of the resort. Guests wanting to further relax can visit the L’Apothecary Spa for the seasonal Chocolate Decadence treatment. This 90-minute scrub uses holiday scents, like peppermint, grapefruit, cassia and ylang-ylang, as well as a massage and wrap, all in a room scented with fir and dwarf pine to remind guests of the season and their closeness to nature. The Chocolate Decadence treatment is available starting Dec. 2.

Another one of the many holiday celebrations found at the resort is the introduction of specialty holiday menus at the acclaimed Cress on Oak Creek restaurant. For Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the restaurant will offer unique dishes for these special moments. Thanksgiving at L’Auberge de Sedona entails a four-course tasting menu, with dishes like espelette chicken boudin and seared wild boar tenderloin, with additional wine pairings. Christmas feasts will be held on Christmas day as a brunch or dinner with signature dishes like sous vide breast of organic turkey and herb-crusted prime rib. To ring in the new year, the New Year’s Eve celebrations at the resort’s restaurant will include meals like bourbon-braised pork and butter-braised main lobster.

Phnom Penh as we imagined it stretches beneath us: a picturesque, low-rise mix of Southeast Asian and French Colonial styles. When the inhabitants of those buildings look back at us here in the Fairfield by Marriott hotel in Chip Mong Tower, they see the future.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
