A unique resort, Amangiri, meaning peaceful mountain overlooks 600 acres in Canyon Point of southern Utah, near the border with Arizona. The resort is tucked into a protected valley with stunning views of the National Monument Escalante. Built around a central swimming pool with stunning views, the resort seems to be an integral part of the environment, where deep canyons and towering plateaus create a landscape of immense power. The luxurious property opened its doors in October 2009 designed by Rick Joy, Wendell Burnette and Marwan Al Sayed.
In one of the most spectacular landscapes in the U.S., the region hosted for centuries the indigenous tribes Navajo and Hopi. Architecturally, the resort has been designed to fit into the landscape using natural hues, materials and textures. The imposing structures provide a warm environment where guests are invited to live a unique experience.
To reach someone at Amangiri will need to traverse a winding road that descends into the valley and leads to the main building. Here’s the living room, library, dining room and cellar.
The resort has a total of 34 suites, 16 of which are located in the desert, while the remaining 18 suites together with the Aman Spa are located on the inner wing. All rooms are decorated in a minimalist style, modern furniture, especially items.
Private swimming pools, terraces with spectacular views and a fireplace create an environment of unparalleled beauty.
