This is my second trip to Amara. The first was for my honeymoon in October 2013. I can't really begin to describe what a special place this is. Not only is it nestled into a beautiful little quiet recess of Sedona's red rocks and next...More

Hi....I am not a weather expert...but.. April is Spring in Sedona...and I gather that it is beautiful, but not "hot". You might want to check weather sites to get an idea of the weather that time of year.

It has a bar fridge with stuff to buy in it in it. No microwave. Don't remember a coffee maker but coffee was available in the morning in the lobby.
