Breathtakingly beautiful mountain ranges and deep valleys create the glorious backdrop for visitors to the contemporary Amangiri hideaway resort in Canyon Point, Utah.
Boasting one of the most dramatic natural landscapes in the entire USA – which is no mean feat – the Amangiri resort from Aman blends in with the magnificent surroundings.
If you can tear yourself away from these amazing panoramic views, you can enjoy the large spa centre with desert views and even more fabulous views to whet the appetite in the dining room serving local, seasonal produce.
The name of the resort Amangiri is derived from two Sanskrit words – aman meaning peace and giri meaning mountain. The name definitely expresses the peace and at one you will feel with nature surrounding by these outstanding mountain ranges and plateaus in a protected valley deep in the Grand Circle.
The natural beauty surrounding Amangiri is reflected in the warm interior of the hotel. In the suites and rooms, you will find a contemporary design with clean lines and using natural materials in sympathy with the natural scenery. The suites have stone floors and natural timbers with large windows to make the most of those expansive views. Every suite has an outdoor lounge while some also have private pools or roof terraces where you can gaze at the stars on those still, quiet nights.
There is also a chic designer four-bedroom home with an infinity pool just minutes from the resort. This is perfect for guests looking for even more privacy who want to feel even closer to nature.
Diners are in for a culinary feast as well as a treat for the eyes with floor to ceiling windows in the restaurant to enjoy the changing colours on the rock face as the light changes from morning to night as well as even more views of the desert and mountains.
The cuisine uses locally-sourced, regional foods selected by the chef who works in an open kitchen so you can watch the masters as they prepare your meals – if you can tear yourself away from those natural outdoor views, that is.
To feel even more at one with nature, guests can try the holistic and healing traditions on offer in the vast spa offering a range of treatments such as massages, scrubs, body wraps and flotation therapy as well as enjoying a sauna, steam room or cold plunge pool.
You could also practise the outdoor yoga sessions beneath the rising moon or candle-lit yoga in the evenings, for example.
The beautiful Amangiri resort is the perfect location for enjoying a luxurious break amid nature at its most dramatic.
