Luxury Travel Advisor likes to remind everyone that there are plenty of wonderful destinations worth visiting in our own backyard, even if you’re looking for an adventure. To Note: Utah’s Amangiri will open Camp Sarika in April 2020, comprising 10 tented pavilions, each with a private plunge pool, living area, dining area, bar and spacious terrace with a fire pit. They are offered in one- or two-bedroom configurations.
Even Better: We like that all of the tents face west to catch the sunset every evening.
Guests will have a myriad of adventures afoot: Camp Sarika will be set on more than 135 acres surrounded by five national parks. The camp will have its own desert and mountain hiking trail system, morning and afternoon wellness experiences, canyoneering, its own via ferrata route and horseback riding. Camp Sarika will also teach guests about Native American culture, with storytelling and star gazing around the fire every evening.
The camp will additionally have its own main pavilion and restaurant, two spa suites, one main swimming pool and a Jacuzzi. The camp is a 30-minute hike or five-minute drive from Amangiri. Good to know: Camp guests have full access to all resort facilities.
Open all day, the restaurant at the camp will offer a menu that will change daily, incorporating fresh, local produce. The open kitchen will have a rotisserie grill, with dishes served on cedar and slate carving boards. Note: Reserved for residents of the camp during the day, the restaurant will also be open to resort guests for dinner (with advance booking).
The camp’s spa will offer a menu of therapies inspired by traditional Navajo wellness practices, while yoga and guided meditation will be offered al fresco. Contact Jerri Lyn Walker, director of sales and marketing, at [email protected]
