Award-winning hotel in the utah wilderness
The luxurious and extraordinary Amangari is a sleek, boutique sandstone hideaway in breathtaking, untamed Utah terrain. You’ll feel a million miles away from the outside, yet you’re just a 20 minute drive from the Glen Canyon Dam and four and half hours from the bright lights of Vegas. Luckily, Amangari has everything you need to embrace your setting; there’s a lavish desert-view spa, yoga pavilion and remarkable outdoor pool which is built around a natural rock formation. You'll want to soak in – or by – the water for hours just taking in the incredible landscapes around you.
There are also plenty of adrenalin-filled adventures available on site. Imagine starting your day in complete awe as you take to the skies in a hot air balloon; the red rock landscapes of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument take on a completely different guise from above. There are also helicopter flights, rock climbing, palaeontology tours, kayaking and desert horse riding.
The view and setting are not the only things you'll want to write home about – the food is definitely worth a mention too. The resort's chef conjures up some incredible South West-inspired cuisine using ingredients sourced from as nearby as possible and there are dishes created right in front of your eyes on hot stones and in a wood-fired oven. And you don't have to miss out on those views either as the dining room has wonderful floor-to-ceiling windows that seem to invite the inside in.
