The Amangiri is one of these incredible hotels we have dreamt about since we were little kids leafing our parents’ home decor magazines. Concealed in the desert of Utah, the resort blends so perfectly with the surrounding landscape you can barely distinguish it from the majestic, enlightened canyons around. Built in the utmost respect of sustainable principles, the Amangiri is one of these places you need to travel to and experience at least once in a lifetime. The result: an unforgettable adventure, a fantastic culinary journey, and a unique feeling of serenity.
The resort is nestled in a protected valley with sweeping views, at the heart of the Grand Circle, just a couple of miles away from the most impressive Southwestern national parks in the United States. During your stay, you could explore Bryce Canyon’s beautiful ‘hoodoos’, Zion National Park’s breathtaking wilderness, Grand Canyon’s vastness, the tumultuous waves of Lake Power and even, the epic Monument Valley.
The suites embrace the area’s raw aesthetic and offer unobstructed views of the desert that you could enjoy from the outdoor lounge. The most luxurious rooms have their own pools and rooftops to peacefully gaze at the ever-changing scenery. Made with natural materials, all the rooms are an invitation to travel. The Spa follows Navajo’s traditions through the use of the four elements’ healing properties. At night, yoga sessions are held in the candlelit pavilion, or outside when the moon is full.
The restaurant menu is inspired by Southwestern cuisine and conceived with locally sourced ingredients carefully selected by the chef. Meals are served in a spectacular scenery, the tables overlooking the incredible sight of the sun setting in the desert through floor-to-ceiling windows.
This haven of peace could also be the starting point for some action and adrenaline: Via Ferrata with amazing views of the valley, hot-air balloon rides at sunset, kayak or horseback explorations… We could spend weeks here without getting tired of the extraordinary vibe and diverse scenery of the Utah desert.
