Utah, North America
Philosophy & sustainability
Navigate mesas and slot canyons and walk through millions of years of history Ochre in the morning light, apricot by midday, dazzling pink at dusk, the geology of the Grand Staircase-Escalante couldn’t be more dramatic. Residing in 600 acres of the Colorado Plateau, and requiring an Act of Congress to be passed so it could be built here, Amangiri blends into countless untouched square miles of red rock country.
At the heart of the Grand Circle region, Amangiri is within easy reach of some of North America’s most magnificent protected areas, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Monument Valley Tribal Park, home of the Navajo Nation. Occupying 243 hectares of this starkly beautiful landscape, Amangiri is as much a gateway to adrenaline-fuelled outdoor adventure as it is to the rich cultural heritage of the Navajo.
Camp Sarika tented Pavilions. A five-minute drive across the desert from Amangiri, Camp Sarika’s collection of 10 elegant and spacious one- and two-bedroom pavilions elevate the wilderness experience to one of peerless comfort and privacy. Complementing the clean lines and natural material palette of Amangiri’s suites, the generously proportioned pavilions each have indoor living and dining areas, as well oversized terraces with fire pits and heated plunge pools.
With floor-to-ceiling windows welcoming in the desert vista, the main Dining Room transforms sea-sonal, local ingredients sourced from Native American co-ops into modern dishes inspired by the culinary culture of the Southwest.
SPA & Wellness
Spread across 2,322 square metres (25,000 square feet), the Aman Spa reflects the healing traditions of the Navajo, with treatments drawing on the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water.
The mesas and canyons of the Colorado Plateau are an irresistible invitation to adventure, with hiking, horseback rides and via ferrata crossings for every level of ability. The glassy waters of Lake Powell are ideal for kayak trips, or guests can take to the skies and take in the spectacular geology of the Utah desert from the basket of a hot-air balloon.
Hot-air ballooning. Launching from Amangiri at sunrise, hot-air balloon flights offer extraordinary high-altitude views as the landscape below glows red and gold in the spreading sunlight. From the basket, 360º views take in Lake Powell, Navajo Mountain, the Vermillion Cliffs and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
