I can admit that a hotel in the desert in Utah, does not sound that exciting. HOWEVER, This hotel is amazing and is definitely on my bucket list! I saw it first in my December Subscription of Conde Nast Traveller and pictures of the resort keep appearing on my Instagram timeline- so it’s meant to be! Every now and again, I go through lonesome phases- when you just want to be in the middle of nowhere. It sounds way more depressing than it actually is and its a good vibe rather than a sad one. But yes, I go through that namaste, zen like phase and I just want to be in the middle of nowhere, filled with peace and quiet – and this seems like the perfect place for that!
Amangiri looks stunning and the 34 suites take a barely-there approach to design, almost disappearing into the landscape with glass facades, wooden furniture and creamy tile floors. Its a resort that is immersed in raw, natural beauty to say the least.
My favourite part of the hotel has got to be the pool. And it’s not your average hotel lap pool; this one wraps around a giant outstretch of rock that serves as the design centerpiece of the property – Crazy!
The rooms also look really cool. The concrete used in the buildings is tinted to exactly match the colour of the local sandstone, so the hotel blends naturally into its surroundings. The private outdoor patio either comes with a gas fireplace and/or jacuzzi, which I think is a great touch to the hotel and gives it a warm and cosy feel.
The resort also offers easy access to dozens of national parks and monuments, including the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Lake Powell, and the Grand Canyon.
This place literally had me the first day I saw it and I wont stop thinking about it until I go. It may take a while for me to get there- years, but it’ll be worth it.
