Thank you to the Hilton Sedona at Bell Rock for hosting me. There are affiliate links in this post.
If you told me a year ago that I would be in Sedona this time this year, I’d say, “of course I will be!” I visit the ‘Spiritual Mecca of the Southwest’ often. It’s my escape from the hustle and bustle of Phoenix.
But if you told me that I would be dining in an igloo, I’d probably laugh. First of all because we live in the desert and second, why?
Until I visited Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock, I didn’t really understand the concept of dining in an igloo. Sedona’s only full-service spa and an 18-hole golf resort is set amidst the spectacular beauty of the magnificent red rock formations surrounding Sedona. The igloo adds the magical, romantic feeling to the resort.
But in fact, it is genius.
With the beautiful lights and the stunning views, sitting inside the igloo is magical. It seats 4-6 and is perfect for social distancing or romantic dates.
Check out their Romance Package.
The hotel has a modern/rustic feel with warm welcoming colors. It’s a joy just to sit outside and have a coffee and listen to the fountains by the gas fireplace.
You will also find plenty of sanitary stations, especially by elevators and eating stations along with taking precautions in the rooms with their Clean Stay program.
I am not a stranger to Igloos, as just a few months beforehand, I went on a trip to Finland and checked out a few igloos myself. Since then, I had dreamt of seeing the Northern Lights from my cozy little igloo in Roveniemi.
Fast forward to this year, after months of social distancing and masking up, I am finding myself eating dinner in an igloo at the Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock. Life is good.
The view was not the Northern Lights but watching Sedona sunsets comes close.
This is why I spend a couple days a month in Sedona. I love the sunsets and the amazing healing energy. There is so much to do, including amazing hikes and tours and rentals. You can bring your mountain bike with you too. One of the perks of staying at The Sedona Hilton has a Mountain Bike repair and cleaning station.
You are welcome to sit by a fire pit and order appetizers with drinks, or make a reservation in their igloo and have your amazing dishes crafted by Chef Brandon Park.
A cool and casual dining and gathering place, merging indoor and outdoor dining, where resort guests and locals can relax and wind down, while recovering from their hikes. It’s like your own little oasis where you can either relax in your sweat pants or dress up for some drinks and dinner. You can also Enjoy a refreshing selection of seasonal happy hour specials offered daily from 3-6 PM.
The food is delicious, using locally sourced fare and locally inspired.
I had with the Prickly Pair Margarita (alcohol free for me), followed by a Purple Kale Salad and delicious Seared Sustainable Salmon with potato emulsion, Brussels, nature jus, and herbs.
Sit by the fire-pit and make your own smores. Check out the Stay and Smore package.
The Hilton Sedona Resort At Bell Rock as a lot of different options for guest rooms and suites. I had a guest room with a patio and two queen beds.
