Sedona Will Welcome First Landscape Hotel
Coming in December 2020
Sedona Arizona: What is a landscape hotel? According to “Travel Away” It is a relatively new concept and refers to a type of accommodation designed to blend in with the surrounding environment and highlight the natural beauty that surrounds it. Only a handful of these boutique hotels are available right now. This landscape hotel that will be built in Sedona will be the first of its kind in North America. It will be called Ambiente Sedona. It is designed after the very first of its kind prototype hotel, known as Vivood Landscape Hotel located in Spain. It is labeled as “Green Tourism and Sustainable Architecture”.
Protecting the Environment
The City of Sedona’s Planning and Zoning Committee (P&Z) has given unanimous approval and go ahead with the project Ambiente Sedona for a 40 guest atrium hotel alongside the SR 89Ain West Sedona. The P&Z gave approval because of the changes to protect the environment which would include hand digging of the footings as necessary. The idea is to keep from destroying the flora and fauna and other natural vegetation and contour of the area. Travel on the property will be by electric carts, e-bikes, bicycles or walking. Other low impact electric travel vehicles may also be available.
Polished Minimalist and Modern Design
These units called “Guest Atriums” will be built on steel piers above the ground. The grade of the land will not have to be leveled. Each unit will be positioned to take advantage of the maximum views and meld with the Soldiers Pass topography. The units will have floor to ceiling bronze-tinted glass with a matte-black and a rusted metal look, similar to Mariposa Grill restaurant, see images below.
Where Will Ambiente Sedona Be Located?
Ambiente Sedona will be located across from Les Springs subdivision entrance. Mariposa Grill is located just to the east of the property border. On the west end, is the Adobe Jack Trail System which is also owned by the property. Right past that is the Crestview community Church and St. John Vianney Catholic Church.
Ambiente Sedona – A One-of-a-kind Experience…
Michael Stevenson, a resident of the Soldiers Pass area and a very successful local business owner out of Clarkdale area has had a dream. This hotel and project is his brainchild. Two Sister Bosses is at the helm of this project. According to their Linkedin profile, It “is a sister owned and operated luxury hotel development and management company focused on creating one-of-a-kind experiences that are in harmony with the natural environment.”
A New Generation Takes On The Family Business
This will be Two Sister Bosses first project, however, this family business has had extraordinary success in our Verde Valley and no doubt will be successful in this venture. This new generation in the family business “is committed to sustainable tourism and bringing new exciting experiences to the community“. The concept is said to be in alignment with Sedona’s expanded focus on sustainability and innovative approaches to long term vibrancy of Sedona as showcased in the letter of intent for this project. ASUL LLC is the architecture firm behind this unique design (Adaptable System for Universal Living).
