Nestled in the red rocks of Sedona’s Boynton Canyon, Mii amo has set the standard for US wellness retreats since opening in 2001. The one-of-a-kind destination spa has emerged from its own journey of renewal and expansion. The new vision is a celebration of setting and holistic wellbeing.
Our team integrated interior design with architecture to refresh the cherished property while staying true to its original intent. We developed a design manifesto to guide our efforts. The experience of the canyon–its tones, shapes, and textures and the unique quality of light and sky–informed us. Our collective goal was to enrich the mind, body, and spirit.
The design frames the natural surroundings and offers a counterpoint with simple forms and a vivid, earthy palette. Decoration is artfully restrained. Organic materials and textures dialogue with the canyon’s red rocks and soft green hues.
A sumptuous sunken living room replaces the former indoor pool with tufted lounge seating. The updated spa is warm and luxurious. Hummingbird, the new signature restaurant, is airy and luminous, changing in character from day to night. Mii amo’s 23 Casitas are reductive yet elegant with a residential feel.
