K2 Design of Phoenix led a renovation program at the 144-room Arabella Hotel Sedona, revamping the property’s guestrooms, lobby and outdoor public spaces.
The historic hotel was originally built in the 1940s to accommodate Hollywood directors, actors and crews. It was later transformed into the King’s Ransom Hotel in the 1960s. In 2014, the property became the Arabella and a new look has been underway since.
Interiors draw inspiration from surrounding nature and Sedona Red Rocks, paying homage to the rich colors of the environment. A big goal was to bring the outdoor aesthetic inside. A 500 sq. ft. bike pavilion was also added to the site, designed with mountain and road bikers in mind.
“Our vision is to really create a hotel for the sense by bringing in special touches through music, art, adventure, relaxation, star gazing, the culinary arts and most importantly adventure,” says hotel general manager Julia Kaiser. “To bring a renewed energy to this locally treasured historical hotel site, while delivering personalized service and exclusive experiences.”
