The design of this serene space is based on the Native American kiva—an enclosed, sacred room used for spiritual ceremonies. It contains an aperture in its domed ceiling, which has been carefully positioned to focus the sun's rays onto the center of the room during the Summer Solstice. The interior also features a mandala (a geometric arrangement of various elements that represents the universe) made of petrifi ed wood and quartz crystal, which sits on the red earthen fl oor. " —Jill Clark, general manager THE SPACE Crystal Grotto THE SPA Mii amo, A Destination Spa LOCATION Sedona, Arizona WEBSITE STANDOUT FEATURES: Crystal mandala, Venetian plaster exterior " Across our entire spa, we have integrated tropical gardens with cool interior spaces to create a haven that feels distinctly Hawaiian. Guests are encouraged to relax pre- or post- treatment in our open-air garden. Next to a quiet stream and under the shade of lush foliage, they can lounge, listen to the soothing sounds of the waterfall, smell the fragrant cinnamon gardenia and treat their feet to refl exology with a walk along the pebbles in the cool water.

We chose to decorate using mauve, gray and lavender tones, a color palette that promotes patience, calmness, peace and balance. We've strategically incorporated amethyst—which has a spiritual protective energy—throughout the spa. Our nail bar's crystal chandelier ties everything together, turning our spa into what we refer to as a 'Jewel of the South.'
