“We are deeply honored to receive such a distinguished accolade for the second time,” said Mark Grenoble, president of Enchantment Group. “This is a tremendous tribute to our staff, facilities, and highly-acclaimed therapists, who engage our guests with unique therapies in an extraordinary setting. It also reinforces why Mii amo leads in repeat visitation and is our model for a handful of future destination spas in other spectacular settings.”

Celebrated for its highly personalized transforming experiences, Mii amo, a Yuman word for “passage” or “journey,” promotes healing through mind, body and spiritual therapies. The intimate Mii amo 16-room destination spa offers 3-, 4- and 7-night all-inclusive “Journeys” or packages that are customized to guests’ needs and preferences.

Mii amo is part of Enchantment Group, a spa and resort development and management firm that was the first to combine a destination spa with a resort community, opening Mii amo at Enchantment Resort in January 2001. The spa’s first cookbook, A Journey of Taste, debuted this year with flavorful “Intelligent Cuisine” recipes from the Mii amo Cafe.

Enchantment Group established another industry first by selecting Gluckman Mayner Architects, known for creating stunning museum environments such as Spain’s Museo Picasso Malaga, to design the 24,000-square-foot spa. Their design harmonizes with the Native American aesthetic and the surrounding red rock canyon, both integral to the Mii amo experience, where treatments range from body work to Watsu to spiritual sessions.

A second Mii amo destination spa is under development by Enchantment Group in Punta Mita, Mexico. Mii amo Punta Mita, opening 2013, will feature a Gluckman Mayner-designed spa incorporating traditions from the indigenous Huichol culture.

Mii amo will be featured in the October issue of Travel + Leisure and on www.travelandleisure.com.
