Holiday hit list. AMANGIRI.
I need a holiday.
Actually, I need Amangiri.
Set on 600 acres of desert in a protected valley, this luxe resort on the border of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is calling my name. This Adrian Zecha-inspired design in collaboration with architects Rick Joy, Marwan Al-Sayed and Wendell Burnette is built on the border of America's largest Indian reservation and is the only hotel permitted to do so by it's elders.
This hidden oasis is truly one of a kind. It's name is derived from the Sanskrit words for peace – ‘aman’, and mountain – ‘giri’. An architects/designer/interior stylists dream sitting peacefully in it's surroundings, blending in with the desert rock formations. Amangiri’s interiors, from lighting and furnishings to signage, have been custom designed to blend in with the architecture and the surrounding American Southwest landscape.
Amangiri is at the heart of the Grand Circle and within easy reach of some of the countries most prized and protected areas, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Monument Valley. You can hike through the rock formations, take an early morning hot air balloon ride, kayak along Lake Powell or indulge in the resorts day spa with a custom facial.
Each experience is completely unique and unforgettable.
This concrete paradise is just what the doctor ordered.
Peace, tranquility and extreme relaxation.
