Experience Aman’s wild side in southern Utah, USA. In a protected valley in Canyon Point, surrounded by spectacular rock formations and the arid desert, you’ll find a resort made in heaven. Utah’s desert oasis, Amangiri – the most fabulous resort in the middle of nowhere – is where the encounter with nature is unforgettable.
Amangiri (”peaceful mountain”) is in the centre of the Grand Circle, surrounded by such iconic attractions as the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Grand Staircase – Escalante and Bryce and Zion National Parks. Amidst these vast desert lands is Lake Powell, created in 1957 by the damming of the Colorado River at Glen Canyon.
Aman resorts consistently deliver an enlightened service philosophy, high-end facilities, ultra-deluxe comfort, private surrounds, total guest privacy and low-key, casual atmosphere. Therein lies their success. Targeting the top-end consumer who has more money than time, they reign supreme in their particular niche market. Most Aman junkies wouldn’t even consider another brand.
Fly away from the everyday at this architectural gem that blends into the raw beauty of the surrounding landscape so naturally. Its architecture demands your attention, with minimalistic sandstone-and-concrete buildings, a giant pool, organic colours, and inside earth-inspired furnishings and fixtures that pay homage to the region’s Navajo heritage. Luxury, relaxation and nature meet here.
Amangiri is a panoramic paradise where 34 ultra-exclusive suites – some with private pools – ensure a comfortable, private and pampered stay with everything you need. Two accommodation wings (Desert Wing and Mesa Wing) lead from the main building – The Pavilion – into the desert. All the luxurious suites boast a spacious living area which opens onto a desert lounge with spectacular views of the untouched valley.
Treat your taste buds in Amangiri’s Dining Room restaurant, where rustic, local and seasonal specialties are prepared. Here breakfast, lunch and dinner is served, and the Dining Room features an open-plan kitchen, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, and an outdoor dining terrace overlooking the pool.
Besides plunging in the sexy pool – wrapped around a rock – as well as enjoying the uninterrupted panoramic view, there’s plenty to do. Attend a Pilates class, shop at the gallery, read some books in the library, or go on an excursion. Explore the region’s striking desert scenery on foot, by helicopter or hot air balloon. Go horseback riding and rock climbing, while Amangiri’s resident astronomy guide will lead guests on a tour of the night. Boat trips on Lake Powell or the Colorado River could also be arranged. Sounds amazing, don’t you think?
Get ready for one of the best spas in the world. The giant Aman Spa is the ultimate place to indulge the senses, pamper the skin, feel healthier, more beautiful and more relaxed. Spa facilities include a fitness centre, yoga pavilion, Water Pavilion – with steam room, sauna and cold plunge pool -, Floatation Pavilion, and five treatment rooms. Amangiri also provides an inspiring setting in which to reconnect with the environment and oneself. Join a yoga class or try a yoga retreat, but we warn you: yoga is addictive and will make you feel high. Namasté!
