Arizona: Showering Under the Stars at L’Auberge Sedona

In addition to being a damn good place to get your fortune told and a hiker’s paradise, Sedona also has a romance to it beyond the sweaty treks in and around the energy vortexes.

A lot of that comes along with the scenery — it’s that good — and my lodging certainly took advantage and played its part, framing up the outside world quite nicely.

The first thing I noticed about L’Auberge was the sight lines from the elevated Vista Suites, the view out the windows absolutely ridiculous (see photos). Another interesting thing about the rooms: The roofless outdoor shower. You can literally shower under the stars, and it’s a hell of a good time.

Patches of clouds parted and I took advantage that night in Sedona, running the water hot in the cold night, the experience getting better as I went along and my body warmed up. Above me the sky showed its stars, and I have to admit it was a really nice touch by the designers of L’Auberge.

Why don’t more remote hotels and resorts have outdoor showers? A sexy twist that complements the romantic views, useful in both the hot summer and cold winter.

That’s one hotel trend I think we could all handle being shoved down our throats.
