Think Pink – Sedona, Rocks
The Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock offers a one-stop destination shop

The layers of history are all around you, these formations and colors you cannot find in the Grand Canyon. Iron-oxide has seeped and stained exposed Coconino Sandstone since the Paleozoic era. It tops the list of ‘most visited’ since the 1980’s as four million visitors make a ‘new age’ pilgrimage every year to the old, rusty canyon. Part of the vast Colorado Plateau and the receding cliffs of the Mogollon Rim, picturesque views of Sedona, Arizona will stun and render you spiritual.
Oceans roared and receded over this area millions of years ago depositing layers of different sediment, hundreds of feet thick that make the rouged terrain seen today. You will be awed by the arches and natural bridges along with the fauna and colorful flora.
Etched by water over millennia, the formations in this scenic pass, Highway 89a/SR179, have colorful names as well. Nestled among Sedona’s dramatic red rock formations, this chic resort hotel is 7.2 miles’ drive to Tlaquepaque arts and crafts village and 11.8 miles’ drive from Oak Creek Canyon is The Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock. The on-site concierge can direct you to Cathedral Rock, Slide Rock, and the many nearby areas to include Bell Rock, only the beginning of the sparkling array of treasures to be found in Sedona. Sedona appears as if it is alive with some spirits that have come before, with a soul that evolves from a mixture of nature’s elements.
The Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock invites travelers to spend more time relaxing with the myriad of adventures found right outside your doorstep. With scenic Red Rock hikes, Vortex tours to tarot card readings provide wonderment at every turn. Red Rock Helicopter Tours are amongst the many ways to think pink.

A Sacred Rhythm massage is just one of the many custom massages that the on-site eforea Spa has to offer. Repetition and flow brings a deep place of peace felt in this rhythmic tranquil massage. The rich Hispanic tradition of the Southwest can be found in the “Manteadas” Massage, inspired by the practice of traditional healing known as Curanderismo. The special massages are both healing and relaxing, while a full menu offers the Sedona Energy, with energy work available in Reiki, Craniosacral, and Chakra Balancing, facials and treatment journeys.
