Arizona & Las Vegas
Amangiri

Starkly beautiful, powerful, raw – these are just some of the descriptions synonymous with Canyon Point, Southern Utah.

The perfect setting then for a 600 acre stunning spa resort built with the sole focus of restoring your natural vibe and re-setting the soul.  Designed to seamlessly and softly blend with the ancient towering rock formations, this is the perfect mix of modern luxury and nature – no wonder Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are amongst past guests!

Facilities & Activities

The setting and design of this resort will assail your senses and restore your mind. The sheer dramatic vistas viewed from every possible angle are breathtaking, and through clever use of light and colour the hotel seems to flow and curve around the sheer rock formations. Sitting still and watching the chameleon landscape shape and shift during the day counts as an activity here. The stunning pool is set within a sunken courtyard that wraps around the base of the rock, complete with hot tub. King sized daybeds on the lounging terrace appear to float on water, or bubble your troubles away in the heated Jacuzzi. In the winter months there is also a fire pit within an inviting nook nearby, perfect for relaxing and warming up.

If you need a little help relaxing head to the destination Aman Spa, a 25,000 square foot vast complex built into the rock itself, with sparkling water features and streams of light cleverly shafting through ‘slot canyon’ views. The spa offers an extensive range of unique treatments, channelling the ancient Navajo culture and healing traditions. The complex includes 5 treatment rooms, a steam room, dry sauna, cold plunge pool and floatation pavilion offering colour therapy-enhanced flotation treatments. There is also the option of outdoor terrace treatments, a fitness centre and yoga pavilion.

Once fully revived guests can settle in the library, set on an elevated plinth on the centre of the pavilion and lose yourself in the variety of books, magazines and board games or just gaze out of the enormous glass windows and watch the sun turn the rocks apricot at sunset, as you cradle an aperitif.

Located just a 15-minute drive to the breath-taking Lake Powell, and surrounded by legendary attractions such as the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Grand Staircase Escalante and numerous national parks, a few outings ‘off resort’ are a must. Options for the adventurous traveller include world-class hiking, biking or rock climbing. Peaceful, epic Zion National Park is a 90-minute drive away, (we think you’ll love to stop and view the incredible Grand Staircase on the way), or Grand Canyon is a two and half hour drive through jaw dropping scenery. For a taste of an ancient indigenous culture head to Monument Valley. This park is located within the Navajo Reservation and operated by the Navajo Nation – which lends a unique insight into the people and their culture. The valley has also been made famous by many Hollywood epics – John Wayne having ‘walked his walk’ there in the classic movie ‘Stagecoach’.

If you’ve a taste for westerns, go for a classic horseback south-west adventure. The trails are designed to suit all experience levels and it’s a great way to feel part of the sweeping landscape (Stetsons are optional!).

Lake Powell is a must visit for some of the most incredible scenery and geological formations in the area. Lofty peaks and mesas surround the turquoise waters that lap the many hidden bays. The hotel offers private half-day excursions from Amangiri to the base of Glen Canyon Dam followed by a privately guided boat trip. Enjoy a picnic on the beach and then be driven home at your leisure.

For those with a head for heights, take an early morning hot air balloon flight to view the incredible vista below (you’ll love the champagne breakfast). Launching directly from Amangiri itself and taking around 25-45 minutes there is little excuse not to hop on board – although it is obviously weather dependent. If you don’t want to ruffle your hair, the resort also offers private scenic aerial flights, all with excellent safety records and services.

Dining

The Pavillion, located at the heart of the resort is open for breakfast lunch and dinner and focuses on delectable locally sourced and seasonal produce. The menu changes frequently, leaving you with the difficult choice of what to savour –  particularly tricky after your delectable prickly pear margarita or sage mojito. Tortilla chips and salsa take on a whole new taste here – so fresh and so delicious you’ll order another plate. The dining room features floor to ceiling glass doors that open onto outdoor terrace overlooking the swimming pool and houses an open kitchen with wood fired oven, giving a rustic authenticity and homely feel. Make sure you reserve your place as it gets booked up quickly.

For large parties there is a private dining room and wine cellar seating up to ten people. This is also home to a walk in wine cellar offering a tantalising selection of wines built in state-of-the-art dispensers so you can fill up individual glasses with unique and artisan wines.

After dinner retire to the Desert Lounge and soak in the sunset or gawp (and you really will) at the astonishing array of stars through the softly lit windows.
