Enchantment Resort, Sedona’s leading luxury resort located in the heart of Boynton Canyon, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jose Martinez as Executive Chef. Set on 70 acres of panoramic natural terrain, Enchantment Resort is known for its fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, sophisticated menus, and award-winning wine lists.
A focused and talented Executive Chef, Martinez discovered his love of cooking nearly two decades ago while leading the culinary vision and running the kitchen at his family’s celebrated seafood restaurant, the Crab House, in his native Puerto Rico. Since then, he has gained a wealth of experience and a passion for creatively utilizing fresh and indigenous ingredients.
At Enchantment Resort, Martinez will lend his distinctive point of view to Che Ah Chi, the resort’s signature modern American restaurant, Tii Gavo, a casual Southwestern eatery, and View at Che Ah Chi, which serves light fare and small plates set against unparalleled red rock views. He will also lend his expertise to the culinary programs at the world-renowned Mii amo destination spa and Seven Canyons Golf Club.
“We are thrilled to welcome Chef Jose to the Enchantment Resort family,” said Stan Kantowski, Managing Director of Enchantment Resort. “His drive, dedication, and appreciation of our region’s native ingredients will undoubtedly serve to elevate our culinary offerings, catering to the resort’s discerning clientele.”
Martinez most recently served as the Executive Chef at The Roosevelt New Orleans, a Waldorf Astoria hotel, where he oversaw the entire culinary operation of the iconic hotel, including the acclaimed Blue Room and Sazerac Bar. Prior to The Roosevelt, Martinez held chef positions at a variety of luxury hotels around the country, including The Broadmoor, the Arizona Biltmore, and the PGA National Resort and Spa. He is a graduate of both the Caribbean and Florida Culinary Institutes.
