Situated at the centre of the USA’s Grand Circle, surrounded by the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and Bryce and Zion National Parks, you’ll find the awe-inspiring Amangiri. Boasting some of the country’s most dramatic scenery, this ancient landscape of deep canyons and towering plateaus – the last remnants of truly wild America – is home to the native Navajo tribe.
Situated on 243 hectares (600 acres) in Canyon Point, southern Utah, Amangiri’s concrete structure appears hewn from the rocks. Contemporary and minimalist, the bold design showcases the incredible scenery: windows frame ancient mesas and breathtaking desert skies, and the main swimming pool curves around a dramatic stone escapement.
Guests arrive via a winding road that leads to the property’s central Pavilion, from where vistas unfold towards the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Built around the main pool, the Pavilion houses the Dining Room, which opens onto an outdoor dining terrace overlooking the pool; the Living Room; a library; gallery; private dining room; and a cellar. Beyond the Pavilion, the open-air Desert Lounge offers a relaxing space for enjoying sunsets and stargazing. A number of open-air venues – the Fireside Pavilion, the Chinle Site, Saddle Landing and Raven’s Nest – are available for private dining and events.
