This hotel says...

Amangiri has been designed to blend into the landscape of Canyon Point in Southern Utah, with natural hues, materials and textures as a feature of the design. The structures are commanding and in proportion with the scale of the natural surroundings, yet provide an intimate setting from which to view and appreciate the landscape. Arrival to the resort is via a winding road that descends into the valley and leads to the central Pavilion. Built around the main swimming pool, the Pavilion embraces a dramatic stone escarpment. Within the Pavilion is the Living Room, Gallery, Library, Dining Room, Private Dining Room and Cellar. Two accommodation wings lead from the Pavilion into the desert: 16 suites are located within the North Wing and another 16 suites together with the Aman Spa are located within the South Wing. Outward views from the resort look over the untouched valley surrounded by lofty bluffs.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Encircled by dramatic, earth-colored rock formations, Aman Resorts’ second North American property is hidden away on 600 acres of Utah wilderness alongside eroded hoodoos and 5,000-year-old petroglyphs. In its squat cement buildings, each color-matched to mirror the subtleties of the landscape, you’ll find 34 suites that frame breathtaking views of the sculpted sandstone. A 25,000-square-foot spa has hydrotherapy treatments and generous spaces for yoga and Pilates. Meals are served in the wood-and-stone-accented dining room, which overlooks a dramatic pool that wraps around a huge boulder. At night, after a dinner of roasted elk with cherry sauce, the region’s stillness seems somehow musical, a soundless evocation of the American West." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Travel + Leisure says..."Staking a claim to 600 remote acres of Utah’s vast desert landscape, this exclusive resort guarantees coveted alone time—at a price—and has attracted privacy-seeking celebs such as Brangelina. Thirty-four cement low-slung suites blend seamlessly with the dramatic sandstone formations. Twin rain showers, soaking tubs with uninterrupted views, and private outdoor desert lounges with fireplaces complete the ultra-modernist look. Laze poolside and gaze upon the dramatic 150-foot-high rock breaching the waters, or see the dramatic sights from helicopter or hot-air balloon rides." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Opened in 2009 in the center of the Grand Circle, this resort, designed to blend into the landscape, is located on a perfect-scoring 600 acres surrounded by the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and Grand Staircase-Escalante. “It’s understated but absolute luxury in the desert.” Entry to each “spare but very comfortable” suite is via a private courtyard with a Douglas fir timber screen; inside, white stone floors and concrete walls complement rawhide furniture with natural timbers, blackened steel fittings, and light-colored cushions. Concertina glass doors open to a lounge with a fireplace and views of the natural landscape. “Staff are low-key, friendly, and attentive—but not always immediately on top of anticipating guests’ needs, such as towels by the pool.” The Dining Room uses locally sourced seasonal produce and has an open kitchen with a wood-fired oven that creates “spectacular food.” Activities are “excellent, from the outstanding via ferrata to a superb spa.” ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."This Southwest-style resort, made of low-slung adobe casitas in central Arizona’s Boynton Canyon, blends into the iconic red-rock cliffs of Sedona, a town known for its artsy, New Age vibe. Opened in 1987 and set on 70 acres, Enchantment’s 218 rooms and suites (fresh from a renovation in 2012) look out onto undulating canyon walls and green cottonwood trees, while neutral interiors are inspired by the surrounding terrain and are filled with accents that refer to local Native American culture (kiva fireplaces; area rugs inspired by traditional basket-weaving). Within Enchantment’s grounds, but separate from the main complex— also home to several pools, six tennis courts, pitch-and-putt golf, and hiking trails—is the transformative Mii Amo, a 24,000-square-foot destination spa with 16 casitas as well as a dedicated pool and regionally inspired restaurant. A three-, four-, or seven-day stay at Mii Amo—or a “Journey,” as it’s called—is priced on an all-inclusive basis (accommodation, spa treatments, and meals), while Enchantment guests can book treatments on an à la carte basis.~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This former private ranch surrounded by pine trees in Red Rock Country offers an “unbeatable experience,” with “great family programs and Native American teachings.” Rustic adobe casitas have beehive fireplaces and Southwestern furnishings that are “in keeping with the location and theme.” Decks open to views of Boynton Canyon that will “take your breath away.” The “superb, customer-oriented staff are great,” and the property recently went through a renovation, upgrading all rooms. Expect “spotty cell phone reception, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing!” Che-Ah-Chi has floor-to-ceiling windows with 180-degree views of the surroundings, and Southwest-accented American cuisine, hence dishes like buffalo tenderloin and baby carrots." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Travel + Leisure says..."If you’re looking for hustle and bustle, go elsewhere: this Four Seasons outpost is tucked up against some of the remotest desert in town. Opened in 1999, it’s already undergone a $17 million renovation. The new “desert chic” palette is meant to evoke the colors of sunset and the arid region in bloom—which sounds corny, but in the hands of aDalls based interior design firm Paul Duesing Partners, is anything but. The innovative look is supersophisticated, with unexpected splashes of color (heavy carved Mexican wood chairs covered in bright green leather, mixed and matched florals and stripes in bawdy hues), buildings designed to blend into the surrounding desert, and whims indulged at every turn. (Think complimentary fresh fruit and Popsicles delivered to you poolside.) Champion golfer and course designer Tom Weiskopf renovated the Troon North’s 36 holes—considered the best in this greens-covered town. Book a private dinner in the wine-tasting room at on-site restaurant Talavera, where the chef will pair a different wine with each dish.~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This “delightful desert surprise” sits 1,000 feet above downtown Scottsdale in the foothills of Pinnacle Peak. Designed to blend into the surrounding environment, rooms are arranged as one- and two-story Southwestern casitas with “huge, comfortable beds,” sunset views, and a color palette mirroring the tones of the Sonoran Desert in bloom and the purples, pinks, and oranges of sunset. Suites add telescopes, private plunge pools, and outdoor garden showers to the equation. The restaurant Proof has a menu of classic American favorites like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and oyster po’boys, and chicken and waffles. The pool is “the most gorgeous I’ve ever been in, with service overall to match”; at its edge, Saguaro Blossom provides complimentary snacks and smoothies. Head to the outdoor patio for “amazing views of those incredible desert sunsets.'" ~From CondeNastTraveler.com
