We have already challenged you for a sporty way of getting to know Utah, but today we are unveiling the perfect getaway to spend the most relaxing and introspective times – an oasis in the desert, the Amangiri Resort.
The resort is located in Canyon Point, in the southwest region of the USA called the Four Corners, where the states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona meet, and the home region of the native Navajo and Hopi tribes. Amangiri is in the centre of the Grand Circle, close to must-see places such as the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Grand Staircase – Escalante and Bryce and Zion National Parks.
Despite how unmissable these places might sound, Amangiri is plenty of reasons to not let you leave for a minute this unreal resort.
The architectural work pays much respect to the surroundings – it looks it has been discreetly erected from the ground, by the sand and the rocks, as it gently embraces and gets protection from one of the sides of the valley.
From every window and terrace you will contemplate powerful and apparently remote scenery, and at the same time enjoy the stripped luxury of the common areas of the pavilion: having a chat at the living room, appreciating the region’s best art, jewelry and handicrafts including works from the Navajo community in the gallery, reading a book or a magazine in the library, enjoying a meal with locally-sourced seasonal ingredients in the dining or the private dining room, tasting exquisite wines from the cellar, relaxing at the spa, taking a bath in the swimming pool and chilling in the desert lounge. For the private areas you can chose a suite or a villa, all of them beautifully decorated in neutral, natural and earthy tones, as a comfortable extension of the surroundings.
During the summer you can also take a tour of the night sky with the resident astronomy guide, who will highlight the week’s most visible celestial happenings at the Desert Lounge.
