Amangiri Resort, Canyon Point, Utah
After our visit to the Amanyara resort in the tropical Turks & Caicos, we have to say, we are a bit blown away by the tranquility of the Aman Resorts. While this may not provide you with an opportunity to don your bikini, the Amangiri resort in Southern Utah is a haven situated amongst a secluded valley within the raw landscape known to the Southwest. The 600 acre resort offers guests an environment that parallels the natural hues and textures of its surroundings. Stay in one of 34 suites that offer various views of the region’s many scenic attractions such as the Grand Staircase, Monument Valley and the towering plateaus of Zion National Park. Find inner solace at one of their many complimentary yoga and pilates sessions that incorporate restorative and meditative practices or join your significant other at the main pool for a midnight swim underneath a blanket of stars. And if you just can’t seem to get enough, Amangiri will soon add 28 private Bauhaus-inspired residences to their grounds that will offer owners their own hideaway in the sparsely populated area.
