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
