    Desert Oasis - Amangiri

    Amanresorts always have one thing in common…monolithic hotels set within awesome remote (usually) locales that are contextually relevant and contemporary. Their formula is once again a “winning” combination with Amangiri. And this one sure is remote. Situated on the southern Utah side of the Four Corners region in America, you can fly into a landing strip on the Arizona side and then take a short 20 minute drive to the resort. I hear the views are breathtaking. Think dramatic canyon landscape with crazy rock formations for miles coupled with the natural, colorful hues and textures of the Navajo desert. Then you’ve got bright, beautiful sunsets that bring rise to the moon and stars offering guests’ nature’s finest complimentary light show. Apparently the dinosaurs found the land to be agreeable as well because fossils and footprints dating back 160 million years ago are common in the area.  Keep a lookout! You never know what you might uncover.

    Of course, no oasis is complete without a Swimming Pool, Spa, Cellar, Living Room, Gallery, Library, Dining Room and Suites. The main Pavilion houses the former sans the Spa and Suites which are found in two expansive wings (hmmm, do I see a conceptual link to Native American culture?) called the Desert and Mesa Wing with a grand total of just 34 suites.  Cool desert nights encourage guests to be warmed by their private bonfires and to soak in their surroundings on the terrace. Really, I could go on and on about this place…but I think it’s best just to experience it yourself. P.S. The video is visual eye-candy worth watching!

    We stayed in an aman for out honeymoon in thailand and they absolutely make you feel like you are at home in addition to the contextual genius of the design. The amangiri is next on my list! xx

    A place where you can feel a total relaxation.Knowing that it is in the middle of the dessert still the place can provide all the things you need to unwind and experience the luxurious stay and feel the oasis.
