Among the awe-inspiring canyons and mesas of southern Utah, Aman Resort’s second American property, practically carved into the ancient landscape, is a modern minimalist’s dream. The serene getaway is awash in calming beiges, browns, and creams—tones that might ordinarily strike one as bland, but here, effortlessly complement the surroundings. With its extra attentive staff (they’re known to greet you by name and recall seemingly obscure details, like how you take your morning coffee) and hushed interiors, this sandstone fortress is an ultimate desert escape. With their concrete walls, white stone floors, and steely furnishings, the starkly modern suites (the most sought-after is the enormous Girijaala, featuring a 46-foot lap pool) take design cues from the eroded rock formations that surround them. Get up close and personal with the desert from your outdoor lounge and fireplace. At the resort’s open-plan dining room, enjoy wood-fired pizzas and grilled local meats, seasoned with everything from Utah salt to lemongrass sambal or chili paste—the latter is a gentle nod to the Aman brand’s Indonesian origins. It’s easy to make a daily habit of taking a dip in the property’s stone-lined step pool, but don’t leave without spending at least one afternoon at the 25,000-square-foot-spa, whose treatment menu draws inspiration from ancient Navajo healing techniques.
In the Area
Amangiri, bordered by the deep canyons and plateaus of the dramatic Four Corners (where the states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona meet), is set in the middle of a region that boasts America’s largest concentration of National Parks and National Monuments. The resort is just a 25-minute drive from Page Municipal Airport, though many guests choose to fly into Las Vegas and take the scenic 4.5-hour drive.
How to Get There
gorgeous red and yellow water hewn canyons - Lake Powell -- enough pool to swim laps or float or escape children belly flopping spa water, spa float facial hydration in the midst of the desert. if you are really lucky, you will get a chance to hear Allen Titus talk about dinosaurs and the dig nearby.
my wife and I stayed here on a birthday trip and had a superb experience. The suites are really nicely designed with large terrace with fire and amazing views. Pool is one of the nicest I've swum in. Restaurant food quality was excellent although our server was newer and struggled a little (we didn't mind though). Some great guided and self-guided walks. Spa is decent if a little pricey. Location is excellent in the middle of the desert and mesas with incredible views during the day and beautiful night skies later on. So peaceful and relaxing.
Just returned from a 3 night stay at Amangiri.
Words cannot express how magnificent this trip was.
We flew into Las Vegas airport and drove 4 hours to the property.
When we pulled up to the gates of Amangiri, we were stunned at the beautiful scenery. Coming from NYC, we never see anything like this. I was worried about traveling to Amangiri in February because of the weather, but it got up to high 50's during the day, which was perfect!
Check in was super fast and easy. We chose the desert view suite, which was amazing. No complaints.
For experiences, we chose the Horseback riding with Kelly. Amazing. I would highly recommend. I was worried never having rode a horse before (well a few times as a child) but it was great for beginners. We rode around the 600 acres of property, right up against the mountains, it was fabulous.
Breakfast Lunch and Dinner were all included in the price. The food was amazing and definitely good portions. No complaints there either.
I understand this trip is quite expensive, but I can promise you, you will never experience this kind of luxury and service anywhere else in your life. Definitely a must.
Enjoyed a luxurious three night stay in a Mesa View Suite at this Aman property near the Arizona-Utah border, conveniently located for access to popular northern Arizona sites (e.g., Horseshoe Bend, Antelope and other slot canyons), as well as major Utah national parks (Zion and Bryce). The property is one of the most architecturally striking I’ve ever encountered. Built to blend into the surrounding rock formations, the resort features stunning landscape views in all directions. Large openings in the hallways serve as living “portraits” of the surrounding desert and rock formations. The suite itself was spacious, and beautifully appointed. The outdoor seating area was visually attractive, though the small ethanol firepit proved more decorative than functional on the chilly mornings and evenings. Service was friendly and welcoming from all staff, who seem sincerely eager to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Cuisine at the restaurant emphasizes local ingredients and flavors, and was uniformly outstanding. While not an “all-inclusive” resort, the room rate includes all food and beverages (excluding alcohol), so the temptation to indulge is hard to resist! Overall, we had a memorable stay, and will look forward eagerly to a future visit.
I just spent four nights at the Amangiri with a group of girlfriends to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. This hotel is very special. The setting is just breathtaking, with beautiful vistas in all directions. I think this has to be one of the most beautiful hotels in all the world, ringed by mountains and designed to merge seamlessly into the landscape. We really appreciated that they heated the pool in February so you could swim, the spa is amazing, and all the food was terrific. We did a number of meals in unusual places on the property, and the service was just fantastic across the board.. I couldn't be more impressed by the warmth and professionalism of the staff at this hotel. This was my first stay at an Aman Resort and I can see why it is rated the top hotel chain in the world. .
