Aman into Utah

Amanjunkies, those fervent repeat customers of Amanresorts, have until now had only had one option in the U.S.—Amangani in Jackson Hole, WY. All that changes this month. Amangiri, in southern Utah, close to the juncture known as the Four Corners, is set to welcome guests to the 600-acre hotel, tucked into a valley surrounded by stratified rocks and high bluffs.

The resort is a luxe base for day trips to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Bryce and Zion national parks. Each of the hotel’s 34 suites has desert and mesa views; Pool Suites and the Girijaala and Amangiri Suites have private pools and secluded outdoor sky terraces.

The centerpiece of Amangiri, which translates into “peaceful mountain,” is a sprawling Pavilion, reached by flights of wide steps. It’s an open-plan arrangement consisting of lounging areas, a library, dining room and an open kitchen—all with floor-to-ceiling glass that frames panoramas of the desert, the rock formations and the mesas. At night, Amangiri’s exteriors are subtly lit making for great stargazing.

Amangiri will also have a 25,000-square-foot spa with a Water Pavilion that offers hydrotherapy treatments.

Menus at Amangiri will rotate frequently based on available ingredients from local farmers. Top View: The open-plan kitchen will allow guests to interact and watch the chefs at work.

VIPs, take note: In addition to the resort, Amangiri also has 28 four- or five-bedroom private villas, each with large pools, wine rooms, fireplaces and staff quarters.

Getting There: Amangiri is a 25-minute drive from Arizona’s Page Municipal Airport, which is served by Great Lakes Airways’ direct flights from Denver and Phoenix. Luxury travel advisors can contact Sales Manager Jessica Cook ([email protected]; 416-727-2179).
