Fodor's Expert Review Amangiri

1 Kayenta Rd., Canyon Point, Utah, 84741, USA Fodor's Choice

One of just two U.S. properties operated by the famously luxurious Aman resort company, this ultraplush and ultraexpensive 34-suite compound lies just a few miles north of Lake Powell on a 600-acre plot of rugged high desert, soaring red rock cliffs, and jagged mesas. Each of the artfully designed units has an extensive private terrace and outdoor fireplace; top units have private pools. High-ceilings dome each room and stone floors, concrete walls, and timber with steel finishes create a modern-rustic feel. The massive bathrooms, each with a deep sunken tub and tall window perfect for stargazing, summon any tired traveler to relax. A dramatically situated spa offers treatments in both indoor and outdoor areas. Guests dine on locally sourced American Southwest cuisine in a softly lit dining room, warmed by a crackling fireplace. The clientele is mostly hotel guests, but the public is welcome by reservation. The eager-to-help staff can tailor guided day hikes or dinners on your private terrace. In winter months, rates include meals, group hikes, yoga classes, and spa treatments.
