A sleek all-suite hideaway in the heart of Navajo country, Amangiri is both a modernist luxury desert oasis and a Rick Joy designed architectural marvel, surrounded by the ancient geological splendor of some of the country’s most fascinating National Parks and monuments. One of the newest outposts of the exclusive Aman Resorts brand, Amangiri translates to mean “peaceful mountain”—a fitting moniker given its wind-carved Canyon Point location at the intersection of the Arizona-Utah border.
Serenity is an all-encompassing experience at Amangiri. It begins upon arrival with the resort’s tinted geometric concrete exterior, expertly designed to fade into the raw worn desert, and it continues along the paths lined with almond trees and linear walls, intentionally placed to soothe guests into contemplation as they arrive at their suites. Each of Amangiri’s 34 private suites extends from the central Pavilion as if built into the landscape and echoes its outdoor setting through pacifying monotones of concrete walls, blonde wood, raffia, rawhide, and touches of sage-colored bathroom tiles. Chic and secluded, they feature all of the elegance of a luxury resort, including private courtyard access, voluptuous king sized beds, extensive dressing rooms, twin rain showers and soaking bathtubs, and private desert lounges equipped with a fireplace and resting mattress—the perfect spot to take in the sweeping desert or mesa views and sleep under the desert stars. For discerning clientele, the Girijaala Suite and Amangiri Suite offer more spacious accommodations outfitted with private pools, additional bathing areas, and even a sky terrace for stargazing.
The definition of serenity, the Aman Spa is a destination all its own. In addition to its five walnut-lined, candlelit treatment rooms and yoga classes, the spa’s signature highlight is the Water Pavilion, a stunning swimming pool built around a massive boulder where cushioned loungers, prickly pear margaritas, and an unadulterated desert atmosphere await. Back in the main Pavilion, tranquility endures in the all-day dining room with its rustic authenticity, open kitchen layout, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors overlooking the swimming pool. The menus at Amangiri are ever changing, driven by locally-sourced produce and enhanced by delicacies such as homemade gelato. For an extra special experience, visit the wine cellar for a dispensing of artisanal wine and retreat outside to the Desert Lounge open-air living room to witness the sun setting over the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in the distance.
Amangiri sits at the center of America’s Grand Circle, ideally bordered by some of the North America’s most iconic natural landmarks, including Grand Canyon National Park, the Colorado River, Monument Valley, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Bryce and Zion National Parks. Given its distinct location, the resort boasts an extensive menu of adventure activities, from world-class hiking right at its doorstep to flight-seeing over the geological marvels of the Grand Canyon, often considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Set out on guided paleontology excursions to view dinosaur tracks, trek to the sacred slot canyons nearby, embark on a private Colorado River Glen Canyon floating trip, ride on horseback to a private dinner at Raven’s Nest, and follow a Navajo guide through Hollywood-memorialized Monument Valley within the Navajo Reservation, every time returning to the ingrained serenity of Amangiri.
