50 Dec22230 Most Elegant Boutique Hotel – Arizona If you’re after peace, tranquillity and to experience the beauty of nature, look no further than A Sunset Chateau situated in the heart of the Arizona, and encompassed by the sandstone for which it is famed. We find out more as we speak to the hotel’s General Manager to find out more. Nestled on a quiet hillside and surrounded by stunning panoramic views of Sedona’s iconic and world-famous red rocks, A Sunset Chateau is a family-run boutique bed and breakfast that values treating its staff like family and providing its guests with a relaxing getaway. “Our goal is to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere and we strive to provide a personalised service, with attention to detail, to make each stay truly memorable and for all our guests to feel truly welcomed,” explains Jean-Christophe Buillet, the hotel’s General Manager and son of the Owners and Founders, Phillipe and Janet. “We have been running the Chateau for 20 years now as a family and the property was the answer to our prayers, it continues to be a place where we see miracles almost every day.” The Chateau is fortunate to have a wide variety of customers who choose to stay there for many different reasons and guests come from all walks of life, having diverse needs and interests. One thing is clear though, the staff at The Chateau approach all guests in the same manner, which is to treat them like family. “One of the things that sets us apart from other B&Bs is our amazing views,” Jean-Christophe enthuses. “Our property is located in a beautiful, scenic hilltop and our rooms offer breathtaking views of Sedona's world-famous red rocks.” Another unique selling point of the property is the privacy it offers as there are only 25 suites. “This means that guests often feel like they are on a private retreat,” he continues. “Our suites are spacious and secluded, providing guests with the peace and quiet they need to relax and unwind.” At The Chateau, residents can experience artistically decorated spacious luxury suites with unique curated art and furnishings, and thoughtful touches to make visitors feel more at home, including organic bath amenities and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi. There are also more luxurious touches, such as in-room fireplaces and whirlpool tubs, for a real sense of opulence. Outside, there are many places to unwind and enjoy the solitude and glorious views, whether from the patio, in the lush gardens and outdoor spaces, or by the salt-water pool and jacuzzi. Naturally, the luxury industries require a dedication to excellence and the family has approached this ‘pursuit for perfection’ by always striving to provide the perfect experience for guests from start to finish. One way the Chateau does this is through its dedicated staff members. “We work closely together and support each other, with the main goal being to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for both our guests and our team,” continues Jean Christophe. “When we are looking for a new person to join our team, one of the most important qualities we look for is kindness. We believe that kindness is at the heart of great customer service, and we want to ensure that everyone who works with us is genuinely caring and compassionate.” The hiring process at the B&B goes far beyond paper qualification with the management being keen to look for candidates who exhibit kindness in both their words and their actions – those who are genuinely interested in helping others and who have a positive attitude. It is also important that employees are willing to go above and beyond to provide exceptional service, and put in the extra effort to make the guests feel at home. Aside from having an amazing team behind them, Jean-Christophe and his parents are always looking for ways to leverage new technologies and products to assist staff and provide an unrivalled guest experience. From state-of-the-art communication systems to cutting-edge guest management tools, the Chateau is committed to staying at the forefront of the industry to better understand its guests’ preferences and needs, and therefore to provide a more tailored visitor experience. Recently, A Sunset Chateau gained recognition in the LUXLife Leaders in Luxury Awards and was bestowed with the prestigious title of Most Elegant Boutique Hotel – Arizona. This award is testament to the time, commitment and hard work that Jean-Christophe, his parents and the entire team have put into making the property an award-winning experience!
